Magic Carpet Ride/Everybody's Stalking

Yo peoples.

I'm gonna bust out a couple o' songs here for two for one Sundee Fundee, which consists of last weeks song stuck in my head followed by this weeks:

Last week's:  Steppenwolf's classic from 1968, here's "Magic Carpet Ride"

Next, this week's song takes us forward 32 years to the future, all the way to the year 2000!

Here's Badly Drawn Boy's "Everybody's Stalking"

I love these songs shuffling their way into my head.  If anybody's happening to read this, let me know what you think of these two fantastic songs.

Hugs, Brady

Gotta Be This or That

Forever Plaid-a-looza continues here at thesongssstuckinmyhead.blogspot.com 

Sunday morning, I had the second song in the show running through my brain. 

I had a hard time finding the origin of this song.  I almost wish there was a website for songs, just like imdb has for movies.  Anyway, there have been multiple covers of this song over the years, but the original appears to have been done (written?) by Benny Goodman in 1945.

Here's what it sounds like, friends.

I hope you thought this post was neat.  I'm caught up on all the ones I was behind on.  I plan to start blogging regularly every Sundee, neato friend.

She Loves You

I'm getting caught up.... almost.

I'm completely immersed right now in this production of Forever Plaid.  I'm having a great time doing it even if it's such a big time commitment.

If you've seen 'Plaid' there are many funny moments, and one in particular that I find quite hilarious and inspired the song stuck in my head for 1/7/2018 (in what has now become the 6TH year of my blogging)

In the show, The Plaids talk about how they started singing music for a "whole new generation" (referring to the 60s) which leads into a cheesy arrangement of The Beatles "She Loves You" which reeks of 1950's fluff.  It's one of my favorite moments in the script and it's also very fun to perform.

Anyway, the dang song was stuck in my head.  Here's the Beatles' version:

And here's what the Plaid's version sounds like:

(It Starts about 2 minutes in)

I love music and I love you.

Count Your Blessings (Instead of Sleep)

Here's the song from Dec 31st that was stuck in my head, it's from the Musical "White Christmas" which I saw my wife kill it as Betty in earlier this season.

Here's the song, Count Your Blessings (instead of Sheep)
