My friend Elaine of Kalilily Time whose blog got me interested in the River of Stones project and made that comment: "OK. We're both rolling now. Rolling stones, get it??!!" I got it and I laughed and it set me a-thinkin' back to my misspent youth and I headed to YouTube. Here are the songs for this week:
If one is of a certain age one cannot -- cannot -- hear the words 'rolling stones' without thinking of Mick and the boys. I was in high school and I seem to recall deciding I liked them just to annoy my sister who was an ardent Beatles fan. Then again, I still prefer bad boys to the pretty ones and I still like to pull out my Rolling Stones for housework music!!! Here's a fave y'all will probably recall:
In 1965 I graduated from high school and began college and somewhere I got interested in Bob Dylan's music! This one is a favorite.
The late 60s/early 70s Soul music came to the mainstream and this Temptations hit was one of my favs.
A year or so later, my friends and I laughed and sang along with Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show.
I guess Elaine and I are the Elderblogger Rolling Stones. I don't know about her but I can't carry a tune in a bucket so don't wait for our debut CD!!!!
Hope y'all are having a great day!!!!!!
