Gazoo's Three Songs
« Reply #15 on: September 27, 2005, 08:20:50 PM »
OK, I can't remember if I've used this one on y'all before:

1. Billy Joel, "Keeping the Faith"

2. Rod Stewart, "Love Touch"

3. El DeBarge, "Who's Johnny?"

Again, if you know it, come up with a fourth song that fits the bill.
“The choir of children sing their song.  They've practiced all year long.  Ding dong.  Ding dong.  Ding dong.”

OK, here's a new one, since I'm insomniacal tonight:

1. Earth, Wind & Fire, "Shining Star"

2. Jefferson Airplane, "Crown of Creation"

3. Ray, Goodman & Brown, "Special Lady"

But let's make it more fun: If you know it, rather than posting the answer, post another song that would fit the set.


I have no idea, but please tell.


I'm guessing songs with brief a cappella segments; I'm too lazy to think of three more.


Close enough; I was going for "Songs That End With A Capella Segments."


Here's two more that immediately sprung to mind:

The Doobie Brothers, Black Water
Grateful Dead: And We Bid You Goodnight
Let's get right to it.

2. Elton John, "Levon"

3. Billy Joel, "She's Right On Time"

In each of the above 2 threesomes I am unfamiliar with the 3rd song.  In times past I would have limewired it & tried to figure it out, but I won't be that bored until next week sometime.  If you leave it until then I promise to give it a shot.  I will also have a few of my own after I get my annual reporting done today & survive the weekend.

Yes.  More specifically, non-Christmas songs that mention Christmas.

You really should track down the video for "She's Right On Time," a cut from the underrated Nylon Curtain album.  Genius.  The song's about a guy getting his shit together preparing for his girl's Christmastime arrival, and the video takes it smartly literally (between this and "Allentown," BJ was on a roll, video-wise).

Agreed on all counts -- NC was, at the time, his best since The Stranger and served to win back alot of folks (like me, not to mention many rock crits) who thought Glass Houses was crap. (I'd completely forgotten that song was from NC!)  And then he followed it with Innocent Man, also brilliant in a very different way and easily the best of the big-star-pays-homage-to-his-roots albums that came in its wake.

2. Strawberry Alarm Clock, "Incense & Peppermints"

3. Sly & the Family Stone, "Stand!"

1. cellarful
2. wherefore
3. bossa nova

I know a M3S where Petula Clark can go!

cellarful -- "I Know a Place"
wherefore -- "Don't Sleep in the Subway"
bossa nova -- "Downtown"

"cellarful" always reminds me of the Rutles, which parodied Brian Epstein's book "Cellarful of Noise" as "Cellarful of Goys"
You spin me right 'round, baby, right 'round

I don't really know #2, but it all looks like a circus/sideshow kind of theme
