A Musical Interlude

   I thought I would take a moment to bring you a few songs I wanted to include in last month's challenge but never found a place for. First on the list is from way back in 1945. Before Weird Al's day but certainly one of the pioneers that blazed the way for him. Its Spike Jones And His City Slickers.

Cocktails For Two - Spike Jones And His City Slickers

   While we are back in the 40's here's another great. I love this song. I've played it in jazz bands, listened to it at concerts and on the radio and it never gets old. Its timeless and just plain GOOD music.

In The Mood - Tex Beneke and the Glenn Miller Orchestra

   Well I got one more for ya from our not too distant past. This one goes back to 1938. The Big Band was still king. Sometimes I really miss those days. They really knew what music was back then!

The Music Goes Round And Around - Tommy Dorsey & The Clambake 7

   Well I hadn't set out to do a tribute to the 40's but there it is. Sometimes we set out to tell one story but end up telling another. Thanks for stopping by dear readers. Take care of yourselves and have an awesome day!

  1. In the Mood.... a classic!!! You've got a nice selection of songs here :-)

    I started writing down ideas for a second round of music videos. I'll let you know when I finish the list!
