I'll "play" a song, giving song title and artist. Whoever posts next will decide what song should go next, for any reason at all. State the song title and artist, and tell us why it would be a good choice for the next song. The next poster will continue the playlist.

The first song:
"I Love Rock and Roll" by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts.

What's next, wax-spinners?

'Theme From A Summer Place' by Percy Faith.

My favorite song, just love the piano and violin plays.

That's a great song, and I did say "for any reason at all," but can we try to keep some kind of relationship going from one song to the next? :) Thanks.

I think this is going to end up looking like a big Radio Free Hawaii playlist with no audio of course... but hey, to keep in theme with the song posted by Percy Faith, I'll offer the next song on the playlist:

"Calcutta" by the Lawrence Welk Orchestra, a bit uptempo but more fitting with the M.O.R. instrumental offered previously. Plus like "Summer Place", "Calcutta" was also a big top 40 hit around 1961 or so.

"Take Five," by The Dave Brubeck Quartet. Gives you the feel of loungin' after making a long journey to "Calcutta," and came out around the same time (1959). Besides, there's no better song in 5/4 time.

Yes, I'm a BG. :D

That Dave Brubeck song is so cool... love it. A great follow up will be Martin Denny's "Quiet Village" with all the bird calls and vibes, making this the first local entry in this thread.

"SIXteen Tons" by Tennessee Ernie Ford! :o

Mike..."Take Five" was the last song playing on my iPod when I got out of my car earlier this evening!

Well, what could follow "Take Five" and "Sixteen Tons" but Janis Ian's "At Seventeen," one of the saddest songs ever? I don't want to steer anyone in any kind of direction, but there is an obvious NEXT song!

I dunno about patterns, but sticking with numbers I'll go with Alice Cooper's "I'm Eighteen".

Please allow a slightly OT interjection ... "I'm Eighteen" was on the radio a couple of nights ago when I was cruising a side street with the radio loud, and I was screaming "AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT I WAAANT!" and it was great.

OK, back to the list ... I just have to say, putting that suicide-inducing Janis Ian song in this thread was just MEAN! I hate that song.

Next ... "I Wanna Be Sedated," the Ramones. It is connected.

"Twenny twenny twenny four hours to go ... I wanna be sedated!"

You should hear the Grover Washington Jr. version of Take Five. It pretty much keeps the essence of Dave Brubeck but modernizes it a bit for a really nice clean jazzy sound.

Listening to Take Five makes me want to drive a convertible down to Makapuu on sunny Sunday morning. That's a cool cruzin' song.

First time I heard Take Five was in 1972 when I ventured into Lafayette Radio Electronic's audio showroom on the corner of Young and McCully. On the LR-5000 Lafayette's best 4-channel receiver coupled with some Criterion 10-inch three way speaker systems.

Talk about making an impression!
