Al Bowlly "Guilty" - beautiful song with graceful beautiful singing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXHiceMzIVM

Vintage 1910-1940s singers sing in jolly polite manner, different than today & 60s. They sing with trembly voices. It could be vintage vinyl player effect. But, 60s songs recorded to vinyl as well but the voices differ, nobody uses the same technique. But when they play songs with trembly voices & grace, it's usually 10s-40s. As if they were trained to sing like it. Anyhoo, this is next favorite crooner, 1st fave Perry Como.

Reading about Rus. anthems, I found that the past anthem is "Patriotic Song" by Glinka, revised. Listened to the 2 back to back - the update is better, Glinka's song is majestic yet it's not *that* majestic. Not sure what for they changed this anthem back to the old Soviet Union anthem (current) in 2000 with Yeltsin's resignation. Bizarro world. Glinka's song is perfect anthem choice. They should've created new music, if not keeping the cool 90s Glinka-based anthem. Current anthem is dull as hell musically.

In his great blog, Larry posted cool radio show with "set of groovy records by groovy DJs". 3D But the best bit in the show is The Four Freshmen's songs.

"Tell Me" by Rolling Stones. Jolly like Mick's singing & everything else. Newguy would say it's "slept-on" (which I gathered means "underrated").

I watch this video every night before turning in. Fergie's "A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)" was used in the Leo DeCaprio filming of The Great Gatsby, a current obsession of mine:

I'd seen that film - it's boring. If they did carbon copy of the famous book, I wouldn't like to read it.

The Rolling Stones "Sweet black angel"
Michael Winslow "Citizens on patrol" ("Police Academy 4" specially written song by actor who played Jones. Leads by Winslow as well)
Tony Bennett "New York New York"
Lykke Li "Youth knows no pain"
Kermit The Frog "Rainbow Connection" (frog sings it charmingly. Karen Carpenter sings it jolly good, yet, despite Karen's beautiful voice, she doesn't surpass frog's singing in this song)

I used to have that soundtrack on record when I was a kid.   Oddly enough, it was the first Beach Boys related recording I ever owned.

To be honest, I'm not so sure I can answer that question, considering I haven't listened to the album in full since about 1990.   I've always liked the Brian Wilson song though, and I was glad it was included on the deluxe version of BW88

For a while now I have been obsessed with the music of Skating Polly. For those of you here who are not familiar they are a family band, started when one half sister was 9 and the other was 14, kind of in a pop punk vein.
 This is probably my favorite song by them

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=v2ahvxACX5Q


And also

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=n2qJ5bqsWa0

I normally prefer older music but these folks are an exceptional exception (they are grown now too)

You may be interested to know then that not only is Skating Polly my daughter’s favorite band, she has the drummer on her friend’s list on Facebook. Not only that but the song you posted is her favorite. We even did a karaoke version of it (warning:I’m not a singer by any means)

I find myself listening to the Foo Fighters a lot lately. Not just in a hey remember high school kind of way. The adult me realizes they really are a dynamite band and Dave Grohl is very talented (and not bad to look at)

That was pretty good! No offense there were a couple of notes that did not quite make it but wow otherwise that was banging!

How old is your daughter if you do not mind me asking?

She just turned 11. She abruptly changed which part she was signing on the fly and I had to catch up .

My wife is a big fan of the Foo Fighters. I agree about Dave Grohl although I’ll tale your word for it about his looks.

Even though they seem catered to a younger generation(and possibly female dominated?), Skating Polly are a really good group. Musically they kind of have a throwback to  60's and 70's rock sound. But they can be melodic too. Check out Little Girl Blue and The Battle Envy.

You and Jaymie harmonize quite well!  Smiley

I like what Jaymie has played for me. Pretty good although I think she’s hinting around st making our album sounding like that.

Thank you both for the kind words

Radio station named song to play next, it plays right now - Arabesque "Don't Fall Away". Didn't hear it before, like the positivity in vocals. Bright youthful voice.

Music TV channel shows MJ clips today, yet again I realize my favorite song/ clip by him is "Black Or White". Super-catchy & positive, such simple guitar riff yet very cool. Cool choreography as usual.
