STOLEN ahem I MEAN BORROWED FROM JACK

First of all, we are now on daylight savings and I don't know how to change my clock!!! So be a sport...subtract an hour. When it's right again I'll let you know. TX

A few days ago I went to check up on a new blogger friend of mine Jack's Shack...go visit when you have a moment, you won't be sorry: http://wwwjackbenimble.blogspot.com/

And he said that everyone should have their own song. He listed five for himself.

And I thought: "WHOA, I CAN DO THAT!"

Ha! Spent hours thinking of songs. Got it down to the following:

1.I'm Still Standing...Elton John;
2.Aquarius/Let the Sun Shine In...The 5th Dimension;
3. Zorba the Greek...anyone;
4.Sunrise/Sunset,Fiddler on the Roof;
5. Splish Splash I was Having a Flash...i mean Taking a Bath

Somewhere in there are Yerushalayim Shel Zahav...Jerusalem of Gold...Naomi Shemer; California Dreaming...Mamas and Papas; Those Were the Days...Mary Hopkins; Mairzy Doats...The Pied Pipers; Chantilly Lace...The Big Bopper...AND THE LIST GOES ON AND ON...
Theme Song from Exodus...

Songs. How quickly just a few notes and bars transport you back to some place in time where you were happy or sad in love or trying to mend a broken heart. But like a trusty old friend they stay with you for as long as you can remember them.

When I moved to Israel, there wasn't much I could take with me besides memories. Thus the list I have written above is from 'the good old days'.

OK. Your turn. What's your list of five?

Have a great day...stay safe...and thanks for dropping in.

The following song is NOT my sentimental favourite.

I'm currently taking a diuretic, so, I'd have to say that my song du jour, is " Pee For Two".

The Guv

Hi there !
My favorite song in english is

" La, la, la, la la, la, la,............."

In yidish is " Chiribim chiribom la,la, la..........".
In polish : " Trala,la,la,la, la......"
In russian " Tumbala, tumbala,tumbalalyka la, la la la...."
In hebrew " Yerushalaim shel zahav la, la, la, la la....."
In spanish " Besame, besame muchio, la, la, la,......"
In italian " Volare, oh, ho, la,la,la...."
I also knew some other songs in many other languages but i forgot the lyrics.
Anyway, maybe that's a blessing, because according to many in my audience, I sound better reciting my songs than singing them.

I love you
Stay safe and be happy ( Don't worry, be happy, la, la,la..")

Tamara

What a splendid way to trip back into the past. Things were much simpler then. Here's my picks:

Send In The Clowns - ??
Good Vibrations - Beach Boys
You Don't Have to Say You Love Me - Dusty Springfield
Message to Michael - Dionne Warwick
When a Man Loves a Woman - Percy Sledge
Talahachee Bridge - ??
I'm So Lonesome I could Cry - B.J. Thomas
Love Potion #9 - The Searchers
Monday Monday - Mamas & Papas
Put Your Head on My Shoulder - Paul Anka

There's so many, it's hard to stop, but you did only ask for 5 and I've already doubled that.
Shalom & hugs. Stay safe and enjoy the nostalgia for a moment.
Love ya
