-Joe Offer-
Feelings
(Music & Lyrics : Morris Albert)

Feelings, nothing more than feelings,
trying to forget my feelings of love.
Teardrops rolling down on my face,
trying to forget my feelings of love.

Feelings, for all my life I'll feel it.
I wish I've never met you, girl; you'll never come again.

Feelings, wo-o-o feelings,
wo-o-o, feel you again in my arms.

Feelings, feelings like I've never lost you
and feelings like I've never have you again in my heart.

Feelings, for all my life I'll feel it.
I wish I've never met you, girl; you'll never come again.

Feelings, feelings like I've never lost you
and feelings like I've never have you again in my life.

Feelings, wo-o-o feelings,
wo-o-o, feelings again in my arms.
Feelings...(repeat & fade)
Anybody remember when AT&T picked this as their theme song for an ad campaign? Need I say more?

Edith Piaf was accompanied by the inimitable "Les Compagnons de la Chanson" on her 1946 recording of "Les Trois Cloches"(The Three Bells).Have you all forgotten "Les Compagnons" French version of "Down By the Riverside"? It deserves some mention as an example of ersatz folk kitsch.

Incidentally, "Havin' My Baby", "One Man Woman" and "My Way" were all written by the obviously gifted Paul Anka-- he has the knack to keep us comin' back!

Me and my mother used to have soooo much fun singing the awful chick songs from the 50s & 60s.
We'd sing em in a totally saccharine tone, and crack up laughing halfway through. Stuff like leader of the pack, be my baby, my boyfriend's back, chapel of love, the boy from new york city... (I have decided not to dignify these horrible songs with Title Case Capitals.)

HAW! this is fun! and painful! My god, I remember almost all of them mentioned so far and am filled with the disturbing urge to learn them and inflict them on innocent friends--AH-HAA-HA-HA-HA!

I'd like to second "Chirpy-chirpy Cheep-cheep" I remember thinking that song was stupid when I was about 8 years old, and it's held up very well. Also, in the sub-category of Actually Offensive stupid pop songs, I'd like to nominate "Black Betty", by the mercifully defunct Ram Jam, from some time in the late 70's.

something like: [drums-n-bass] oh-oh black betty, blam-ba-lam, she's always ready, blam-ba-lam (no, really, i'm not kidding) born in birmingham, blam-ba-lam, way down in Alabam', blam-ba-lam oh-oh black betty! [catchy distorted guitar riff] black betty had a child, blam-ba-lam th' damn thing gone wild, blam-ba-lam gone out of her mind, blam-ba-lam, the damn thing gone blind, blam-ba lam oh-oh black betty! [more metal riffage] etc, etc.

English lyrics to "My Way" were written by Paul Anka, music by Jacques Revaux. Also, apparently, "Timothy" was written by Rupert Holmes, giving him an honorable mention here, with two songs.

Incidentally, that "Black Betty" is a reworking of an old prison song, "Black Betty" being the name of the transfer wagon that took prisoners to the pennitentiary. "Black Betty's in the bottom, let your hammer ring".

My references on these items are: for lyrics, "Who Wrote That Song" by Dick Jacobs, Betterway Publications, 1988, and for Black Betty, "The Land Where Blues Began" by our own, beloved, Alan Lomax, Delta, 1993.

Now don't begrudge us our fun, Mbo. I have had a slight sore throat for a day and a half now (happens occasionally), so I went to bed at 5 pm today, instead of going out to see Rick Kane sing at Finnegan's...but I couldn't resist getting back up at midnight to check this thread. I don't actually know very many Tom Paxton songs. I could start a similar thread (favourite song of...) for Dylan or Buffy Sainte-Marie, I suppose. Maybe I will presently.

Hesperis - you should've been at song circle about 4 months ago. Seems to me that John Ashe sang "Teen Angel" in a particularly heart-rending version, taking the occasional VICIOUS swipe at his guitar strings at unexpected moments. I think he was serious. He likes (loves) songs about tragic death on the highway...or anywhere else, for that matter. Too bad ya missed it. He does another one called "Wreck On The Highway", but it's a lot older and more traditional sounding...must be by Woody Guthrie or Jimmie Rodgers one of those guys from back then.

How about "It's My Party And I'll Cry If I Want To"? Excuse my dignifying it with capitals...

How about "Seasons In The Sun" by Terry Jacks? Or anything whatsoever by Three Jacks And A Jill?

As for "My Heart Will Go On", I was astonished to hear 3 young Cuban girls sing it one day...in English. They are not immune to the power of North American media there, although they get a whole lot less of it than we do. It was kind of sweet the way they did the song, but that was different down there. Now that I'm back in Canada I can definitely do without hearing it again.

My vote is split between "Tell Laura I Love Her" and "Patches".

Back off Meebo. Us geezers use threads like this to re-live the old days. You will notice that no one dissed ELO and as for Tom Paxton, I don't really have a favorite. I like all his work.

And I'll say so on the proper thread thereby bringing the total to 17 hits.

So how 'bout it ladies and gents (you too Spaw)? Lets all hit the Paxton thread and show Mbo that we,too, can be socially aware!

From: Mbo

This is Patches, by Clarence.

PATCHES
Clarence Carter

SPOKEN:
I was born and raised down in Alabama
On a farm way back up in the woods.
I was so ragged, the folks used call me Patches.
Papa used to tease me about it,
But deep down inside,
He was hurt because he done all he could do.

My papa was a great old man.
I can see him with a shovel in his hand digging.
Education he never had,
But he did wonders when the time got bad.
A little money from the crops he raised
Helped pay the bills we made.

For months, he'd been sick and down in the dumps.
When he tried to get up, life would kick him back down.
One day, papa called me to his dyin' bed,
Put his hands on my shoulders and in tears he said:
"Patches, I'm depending on you, son,
To pull the family through.
My son, it's all left up to you."

SPOKEN:
Two days later, Papa passed away.
I became a man that day,
So I told mama I was gonna quit school,
But she said that was Daddy's strictest rule.
So every morning before I went to school,
I fed the chickens and I chopped wood too.
Sometimes I felt that I couldn't go on.
I wanted to leave and run away from home,
But I would remember what my Daddy said
With tears in his eyes on his dyin' bed:
He said, "Patches, I'm depending on you, son,
To pull the family through.
My son, it's all left up to you."

SPOKEN:
Then one day, a strong rain came
And washed all the crops away,
And at the age of thirteen, I thought I was carrying
The weight of the whole world on my shoulders.
And you know, mama knew what I was going through,
'Cause every day I had to work the fields,
'Cause that's the only way we got our meals.
You see, I was the oldest of a family,
And everybody else depended on me.
Every night I heard my Mama pray:

"Lord, give him the strength to face another day."
Though years have passed and all the kids have grown,
And the angels took Mama to a brand new home,
But no, people, I never quit.
My daddy's voice still rings through the fields,
Sayin', "Patches, I'm depending on you, son,
To pull the family through.
My son, it's all left up to you.
Patches, I'm depending on you, son."

Clarence sings it with such emotion, I get a lump in my throat whenever I hear it. I also like it because it's about black folks, not the usual white trash.

If you like "Patches" and "Teen Angel", hey...that's fine with me. My friend John Ashe, who's an old folkie if ever there was one (although he's somewhat to the right of Jesse Helms) loves those songs.

You all seem very unforgiving is all. Back during the summer of '97, just before I started college, I used to sit an play computers games all day, while listening to the radio. What where the big songs? Semi-Charmed Life; If You Could Only See; Two Become One; Koko Jambo; Don't Speak; Push; Hard To Say; I Wanna Be There...etc. I'd hear these songs day after day, sometimes more than twice a day. And you know what? I may have gotten tired of them, but I could listen to them all right now and be nothing but happy. And I'm a pop/rock lover. So you folks either must REALLY hold a grudge, or somehow you folkies where exposed to pop music WAAAAY more than a junkie like me, which kind of says what about your folkie-status?
