Now if you read the legal disclaimer, say you did in the comments below and you will get another 10 entries in the drawing.

Tuesday’s Memes – Kid Rock

I felt it was time to honor (or poke fun) at Kid Rock.  With doing a My Sunday Song on him, I realized I didn’t have Memes collection with Kid Rock so it is time to remedy that now.  Whether you like him or not, he will always make you laugh…at him…not with him…definitely at him.  So I hope you enjoy.

My Sunday Song – “Who Can It Be Now?” by Men At Work

For My Sunday Song #114, we will discuss the song “Who Can’t It Be Now” by Men at Work.  The song was off the Australian band’s debut album ‘Business as Usual’ and went all the way to #1 in the US Billboard chart thanks in large part to MTV.  MTV didn’t have a ton of videos around 1982 and this would was in constant rotation as a result.

The song is so recognizable when the first note of the Greg Ham’s saxophone kicks in.  The sax is the better than a guitar riff in this case.  Originally the saxophones was only played in the middle of the song, but the record producer felt it was such a great hook that it should be the main musical focus of the song.  And I would say he was correct.

The song was written by singer Colin Hay and was about a place he lived in St. Kilda, Victoria.  The apartment complex at the time was in a shady part of town and all these scary figures would be around.  Someone was selling drugs on his floor and would mistakenly knock on his door and that might have frightened him a little based on the lyrics in this song.

Tuesday’s Memes – The Monkees

The Monkees??  Yes, The Monkees!  I love the Monkees.  The first album I ever got that was mine was a Monkees album.  So why not dedicate a whole Tuesday’s Memes collection to them.  They are more deserving than some I have done so far.  So, sit back and enjoy!  Maybe by the end you will be a believer!! (Yes, I went there!)

Tuesday’s Memes – Twisted Sister

Alright, it is time Dee Snider and Twisted Sister got a turn at the memes.  There were so many to go through that I hope I captured the best.  Whether or not you like the band doesn’t matter, hopefully you will laugh at them anyway.  Sit back and enjoy.

1971 – The Greatest Year in Music?

If you are new to the site, I started this series with the year 1987 and then noticed that 1991 and 1983 were also a couple of the greatest years in music.  I got to thinking, was there a pattern that every 4 years we have another great year in music.  Well theory didn’t last long as I don’t think the next two years I researched were “great” years in music.  Those years were 1979 and 1995. If you want to explore all the years I have examined so far, click on the link below…

1979 – The Greatest Year in Music?

1983 – The Greatest Year in Music?

1987 – The Greatest Year in Music?

1991 – The Greatest Year in Music?

1995 – The Greatest Year in Music?

Now that my theory is busted, I am just going to start looking for the “Greatest” year in music.  I am going to start with 1971.  Will 1971 be another great year or will it be the greatest year.  Let us explore and see and then decide at the end.  But first we have to ask What were the top albums of the year?, What were the debut albums from some of the great rock bands? and What was going on in the world of music that year?

NEWS:

What were some of the biggest news events that happened in 1971?  I couldn’t find any one big thing that happened.  Nothing new was invented such as the walkman or the CD.  There were a couple things of note.

69fillmorewest

June 27th & July 4th – Music promoter, Billy Graham, closed two of the most famous music venues, The Fillmore East in New York City closed on June 27th and closed with The Allman Brothers (the band recorded their famous live album their 3 months earlier) and on July 4th the Fillmore West in San Francisco closed with Santana, Credence Clearwater Revival and the Grateful Dead (not a bad night).

Tuesday’s Memes – The Bee Gees

Yes, we are doing a collection of Memes for the Bee Gees because why not.  If you don’t want a good laugh or don’t like the band, then move on we don’t need you here…okay, we do…don’t leave, please stay.  You actually might like it.  And admit it, deep down you like the Bee Gees.  I am not afraid to admit that I really like them, especially the late 60’s early 70’s stuff.  The disco stuff I can take it or leave it.  Enough chattering, on with the show.

Tuesday’s Memes – Fleetwood Mac

It is about time I did one on Fleetwood Mac.  With the news of Lindsey leaving…again…they need some special treatment.  There was a time when I didn’t think Fleetwood Mac wasn’t cool because I was in to Hard Rock and Metal…well let me tell you…Fleetwood Mac is cool and always was.  Let’s celebrate the band with some memes.  I hope you enjoy…

Tuesday’s Memes – Poison

I finally found enough Poison memes to do a collection on the band.  It took me awhile to find any good ones about as long as it takes to find any good Poison songs!!  I am kidding.  I like Poison. If I didn’t I wouldn’t have been able to rank their albums and actually find one that was good enough to be #1.

So, sit back and enjoy the fun I have at Poison’s expense…
