i love that a song's musical into can trigger a sweet memory..

Mornin' all. Last Sat. seems like a million years ago.
  Sat. 11/12/16 9:12am Stuart Rose:

This traffic song sounds like an early David Bowie song.
Good morning, Brainacs near and far,

Where are my manners?

Yes, a good morning, to one and all.

morning everyone.

i only knew the perry como version of this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/12/16 9:30am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- & the English Beats'. & Andy Williams'?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/12/16 9:32am melinda:

I think I first heard English Beat and was subsequently surprised to discover the Andy Williams.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/12/16 9:34am dale:

i was wrong - meant andy. same catatonically smooth voice, though
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/12/16 9:38am melinda:

Catatonically smooth, haha
  Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/12/16 9:41am WilliamfromDumont:

I'm not ashamed to admit I love Spanky & Our Gang's take on Suzanne.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/12/16 9:46am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

It's funny - the stuff we used to think utterly Fuddy - now it's like - good crooner, nice guy!, good song choices...even Lawrence Welk had actual Jaz on it I suspect...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/12/16 9:47am melinda:

I haven't heard the Spanky & Our Gang but I love Judy Collins's version. Hard to go wrong with Suzanne, though I'm sure someone could ruin it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/12/16 9:49am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...even the cheap garbage & the background music was such a different Culture from now - the 'music of our unconscious' I think Hal Wilner said in some Bugs Bunny Carl Stalling liner notes...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/12/16 9:51am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...there was Jazz to be heard as 'incidental' music...Lo, how the 20th Century recedes!
  Sat. 11/12/16 9:52am Stuart Rose:

Yes, Melinda, the Judy Collins version is the gold standard. So beautiful, like her Who Knows Where the Time Goes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/12/16 9:52am Fuzzy:

Tossed salads and scrambled eggs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/12/16 9:54am melinda:

@Stuart: I also love her version of Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues, maybe because it's the first one I heard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/12/16 9:54am annie:

the only other version of "Who Knows..." that i swoon over is Kate Wolf's cover..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/12/16 9:54am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Judy Collins literally shoved Leonard Cohen on stage to start his performing career.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/12/16 9:54am annie:

@Fuzzy: i love that^
  Sat. 11/12/16 9:56am iff:

is Cecelia the earliest occurrence of the lyrics "down on my knees, begging you please"? the same phrase can be found on probably 100s of songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/12/16 9:58am melinda:

Bridget St. John also did a great Suzanne.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/12/16 9:59am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

A good obvious rhyme & a time-honored Blues trope I wager.
  Sat. 11/12/16 10:02am Stuart Rose:

Ah, that one, too, Melinda.
Judy was probably the greatest interpreter of songs in that period- something like 4 or 5 beautiful albums in a row.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/12/16 10:03am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Judy covering 'Both Sides Now' was a major very early boost for Joni too (of course).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/12/16 10:04am melinda:

She really was. I only have one album, In My Life.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/12/16 10:05am melinda:

Great film.
  Sat. 11/12/16 10:05am StuBot:

good show man. very different. WFMU needs different.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/12/16 10:05am melinda:

I like hearing all the Gravy Waltzes.
  Sat. 11/12/16 10:10am StuBot:

haha...it's different because I was listening to 89.5 WSOU :) oops.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/12/16 10:10am Brian in UK:

Hello Bob.
@WilliamfromDumont totally agree with you about Suzanne. Some might find it a bit light but the harmonies do it justice.
  Sat. 11/12/16 10:14am Stuart Rose:

Right, Rev. Judy knew quality when she heard it. She really had an ear for wistful and poignant songs.
  Sat. 11/12/16 10:15am iff:

its up there with "take me by the hand, make you understand"
  Swag For Life Member    Sat. 11/12/16 10:24am WilliamfromDumont:

@Brian in UK. Yeah, it's definitely "produced", but I love it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/12/16 10:43am common:

It just so happens I haven't listened to FMU for a long time. I forgot how great Bob Brainen's show is!
  Sat. 11/12/16 10:59am gene sculatti:

Listening live. "World's Greatest Sinner," Hot 9, "Painter of Women." Killer songs, segues.
