    Mythical birds count.




    One word instead of two, but I think it qualifies.

    There are, surprisingly, some levels I can't bring myself to stoop to.

    I've gotta use it, for 70s TV nostalgia.

    If we are down to just lyrics now I have to post this one.

    Chestnut brown canary
    Ruby throated sparrow
    Sing the song, don't be long
    Thrill me to the marrow


    By the way, there is no such thing as a ruby throated sparrow but it flows nicely.

    Eagles music has gotten oversaturated, but not all of it. Here are 3 tracks I like from Hotel California’s side 2.

    I'll go there. I have no standards. Except I won't stoop to Anne Murray level. I guess I have some standards.

    She was actually one of my favorites in the late 70s and through the 80s. One of my favorite things about her was that she had agreed to perform the song "Blame Canada" on an Oscars broadcast (as it was nominated for best song from a motion picture) after being talked into it by one of her kids. She was initially hesitant because of the line "all that hockey hullabaloo/and that ***** Anne Murray too." But, she discovered after thinking she could do it that there was a scheduling conflict and they ended up with Robin Williams instead.

    I could probably sing most of her popular music by memory and I probably liked her music in the 70's. It's what my parents forced us to listen to in the car on road trips. The other choices were Roger Whittaker, Bobby Goldsboro and (if we were lucky) Glen Campbell.

    Don't forget Finnish band Steve'n'Seagulls and their unorthodox covers.
