This thread brought to mind the Sing along with Mitch show featuring Mitch Miller. I remember him as a friendly looking sort but in this clip he looks positively fiendish.:twisted: I would not recommend watching the whole thing as the first 30 seconds is plenty. Mitch leads an all white, all male choir with lyrics posted on the screen for singing along.:dejection:

This show was big in its day.:icon_shaking2:

I was tempted to use this, er, demon myself (not this particular clip mind you). For those who are curious he was the A and R man at Columbia Records and was notorious for keeping rock and roll artists off the label. By the sixties it was clear he lost the war.


And now for my donation. You may have heard this one in Ferris Bueller.

When this was recorded in 1963, Wayne Newton was being marketed as some sort of kid Frank Sinatra. He matured into horrible MOR records (Daddy don’t you walk so fast is a horrid example) and then to Las Vegas mogul. He still doesn't seem to remind anyone of the Rat Pack.

This is from one of the great legends of Rock and Roll, who apparently was in a strange mood

Let's just say Johnny B Goode it isn't :cower:

Don't have a video. Pat Boone: Love Letters in the Sand or Goodnight Irene by whoever did that travesty.

Goodnight Irene was by the Weavers I think (early Pete Seeger). I'm not a big Pat Boone fan either.

Now since we have crossed paths finally, I've been dying to ask. Who did you play with in the sixties/ seventies? I am a huge fan of sixties rock and psychedelia.

Belthagor. Was she one of those "Disney" girls? :pukel:

Anyway my daily entry is a moldy oldie from 1971. I think they named a TV series after him.

The Brady Kids did a remake

Now I have to admit this is my guilty pleasure but.....

[video=youtube_share;nC9sEAqEjxs]http://youtu.be/nC9sEAqEjxs[/video]

This one of course is by Pat Boone's (you know that heavy metal star?) daughter. This song was played so much in 1977 that DJ's actually considered quitting. :cower:

MM615 - little performing except as a walk-on. Writing and arranging with Pearl (Janis Joplin). Quicksilver Messenger Service. and others. Performed in late '73. early '74 with international group that soured me on the business. It was just getting sickeningly commercial and the art was going. I've done some walk-ons with such as Molly Hatchet in special shows etc.
I wish I'd done some of the writing using my real name, which a lot of us didn't do back then. Some of it would be bringing in huge royalties today while it didn't make a lot then. I'm in Panamá and can listen to a couple I wrote and co-wrote in the band's name. We'd get together and write stuff just for kicks. A glass of Chianti. a toke or two ....

Add: When PB went "metal" a bunch of us who were actually doing metal laughed so hard we vomited. Not just from what he did to metal. A lot because it was so grotesque. Him going metal caused a quotation to a whole general. "Grotie to the max."

That's really cool Seedy. I am really into Quicksilver (and a lot of the San Francisco scene actually)

Quicksilver was why I didn't perform much then. People always said I was good with the guitar, I was working with them, and why didn't I perform?
Yeah! Right! I was going to walk out on a stage and play guitar - with John Cipolana and Gary Duncan?
There was no one like John for psychedelic and combined jazz and mood. I think only Knoefler could match him today.
Last I heard, last year, Gary still had Quicksilver. Frieberg went back with him when he left Starship.

A big MTV staple in the 1980s

Big hair, a cheesy keyboard, and corporate rock. You can't beat this combination

And now one from our favorite ex-beatle

[video=youtube_share;WC6_Dgrw5e0]http://youtu.be/WC6_Dgrw5e0[/video]

Okay so John Lennon was my favorite ex-Beatle but this had to be the low point of Macca's creativity.

It was the number one song of 1976:cower:

From the hip duo that brought you "Love Will Keep Us Together"


[video=youtube_share;yKw8j7GLSdw]http://youtu.be/yKw8j7GLSdw[/video]

Originally recorded by the band America, who like so many bands of the 70s, grew progressively worse and worse
