YOU'VE CHANGED
Bill Carey / Carl Fischer


I've an awfully feelling

That this thought that's been a stealin thru my brain

Is not to be ignored

But to really tell the truth

Though I'm not a well known sleuth

I honestly believe that you are bored

You've changed



That sparkle in your eyes is gone

Your smile is just a careless yawn

You're breaking my heart

You've changed



You've changed

Your kisses now are so blase

You're bored with me in every way

I can't understand

You've changed

You've forgotten the words, "I love you"

Each memory that we've shared

You ignore every star above you

I can't realize you've ever cared

You've changed



You're not the angel I once knew

No need to tell me what we're through

It's all over now

You've changed

By the B-52's. I used to have that album. "Dance This Mess Around" was my favorite track on that one. The 'Surf Guitar' sound was prevalent throughout the B-52's early albums, with obvious influence from the legendary Dick Dale.

Ok...NOW you're talkin' my language!!! The surfer stomp. Rendevous Ballroom on the Newport Peninsula. 1961. Great times surfin' week-end days and dancin' week-end nights. School was only a bridge between week-ends that year! The wardrobe du jour included huaraches and a parka (winter) or a Pendleton shirt (summer)!

Dick Dale and the Deltones was the Rendezvous' house band before they started recording. Great memories! :D

Ahem...listen to your elders! "Turn up the quiet/love wants to dance" is a play on words! :p Think about 'em. It has nothing to do with "whipping the engrish language outta shape" and everything to do with...oh well, if I have to explain it...

You're right. I googled it and only found references to the song title, with come-ons to buy the album and ringtones, but nobody actually published the lyrics...

Actually, "That's OK you got no legs" is nearly half the lyrics of the "song."

Mostly it's a 1:27 drums/bass/guitar/vocal scat intro to another song, "You're Out Of Touch."

The lyrics to the entire song: "What's goin' on? Whoop! That's OK you got no legs, dance on your knees!"

"Dance On Your Knees" by Hall & Oates on the "Big Bam Boom" album.

You are always in my heart
Even though you're far away
I can hear the music of
The song of Love
I sang with you

You are always in my heart
And when skies above are grey
I remember that you came
And then and there
The sun broke through

Just before I go to sleep
There's a rendezvous I keep
And the dreams I always dream
Helps me forget
We're far apart...

I don't know exactly when dear
But until we meet again dear
And my darling till we do
You are always in my Heart!

Remember Dick Dale's home at the end of the Balboa Peninsula, overlooking the entrance channel into Newport Harbor and just across the street from the infamous bodysurfing spot called "The Wedge"? (California's version of Sandy Beach, for those who don't know.)
Dick Dale had a recording and rehearsal studio on the top floor of his house and you could often hear a mini-concert while they practiced.

Nope! Didn't know Dale lived in the area but, yes, I certainly remember The Wedge and the various news coverages of broken necks. :eek: Do you recall what years he lived there? Hopefully he had foresight and hung on to that property! Real estate in that area is higher than Hawaii, I've heard.

If I recall correctly, the home was finally sold in the early 1990s. He had lived there for decades, so I imagine he showed a profit.

Actually, I googled it and everybody says "Mr. Hall"!! But that may be because the lyrics were transcribed by a mainlander who didn't understand what was being said. All the instances of the lyric that I found look to have come from the same source, too. They all say:

"He said "wow mr hall i think your pushing my leg""

They're all lower-case, like that, and they all misspell "you're" with "your."

But the song clearly says, "Look out Mr. haole think you pushing my leg" in a mild imitation of a local pidgin accent.

A mondegreen - misheard lyrics. Like, "Scuse me while I kiss this guy."

Many years ago, the Canadian comedy troupe The Vacant Lot did a great sketch about the lyrics to "Blinded By The Light" (as 'quoted' by Blaine), where each of them had their own take on it, and tried to explain how THEIR version made more sense than anyone else's.

Sorry to disappoint - not the same.

Jonathan Edwards is a pop-folkie, who had a big radio hit back in 1971, called "Sunshine" ("Sunshine, go away today...") He's also been in high demand as a producer (I know his work for artists like Cheryl Wheeler and Maura O'Connell.)

Jonathan & Darlene Edwards were pseudonyms for the talented duo of Paul Weston & Jo Stafford, doing their best to create horrible performances as a comedy musical act - since they were such skilled musicians, they were among the best as doing "bad" so brilliantly. (See also "P.D.Q. Bach.")

I kinda figured it wasn't the same! I'm such a fan of Jonathan and Darlene having grown up with their music in the background whenever my parents had a party. I carried on the tradition. It was always so funny to see the faces of guests who didn't want to take a chance on offending the hosts by saying something! I wish iTunes carried their music.

I haven't heard of her. I checked the iTunes Music Store and there is an artist by the name of Wing and the album is Island Breeze. But, that really sounds like a 'he' to me and while there were a couple of off notes in the tunes I previewed, they didn't come close to J&D.

Speaking of the very talented Jonathan and Darlene Edwards, their 'Greatest Hits - Volume 2' CD arrived today. I'm in heaven! :D

The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and the stars were the gift you gave
To the dark and empty skies [my love]

Further sleuthing in Google turned up the following little bit of information: the song was written by Ewan MacColl who wrote it in honor of his wife, Peggy Seeger (her half brother is Pete Seeger, considered the father of American folk music). She is the "face" that the song refers to.

Everyone from Celine Dion to Johnny Cash has done a cover of this song, but I believe Roberta Flack is the first one who made it famous. Actually, now that I think about it, Roberta Flack probably wasn't the first performer to make that song famous. Because of who the lyricist and his wife were (primarily folkies) my guess is the first performers who sang this song were Peter, Paul and Mary (I believe I even have the album on which they recorded the track). Roberta Flack was probably the first popular artist who recorded it. Also, Chad Mitchell and the Chad Mitchell Trio recorded that song, too.

the song was written by Ewan MacColl who wrote it in honor of his wife, Peggy Seeger (her half brother is Pete Seeger, considered the father of American folk music). She is the "face" that the song refers to.Ewan MacColl was also father to Kirsty MacColl, a fantastic British singer and songwriter, best known for the song "They Don't Know" (which was a hit for Tracey Ullman in the '80s.) He was a greatly respected songwriter, playwright and activist in England.

Kirsty was tragically killed while swimming in Mexico, when she was hit by a speedboat that was traveling where it shouldn't have been. The boat's owner was never prosecuted by Mexican authorities - because he's a wealthy businessman, suspected of having paid them off. The UK has filed repeated requests that Mexico investigate, but they refuse to do so.

Well, "Tom" was Jobim's nickname.

As for "Garota de Ipanema," the most famous version would be by Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto, with Joao's then-wife Astrud singing.

Joao Gilberto's daughter, Bebel, is now a fine Brazilian-pop-electronica recording artist herself, and Astrud became the subject of a song by Basia.

Much of Jobim's music is still being performed (in its traditional gentle bossa way) by members of his family, along with other collaborators (check out CDs by Quarteto Jobim-Morelenbaum & Morelenbaum (2)/Sakamoto.)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"The Girl from Ipanema" ("Garota de Ipanema") is considered the best-known bossa nova song ever written, and was a worldwide hit in the mid-1960s. It was written in 1962, with music by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Portuguese lyrics by Vinicius de Moraes; English lyrics were later written by Norman Gimbel, and immortalized by the legendary Astrud Gilberto.

It is often claimed to be the second-most recorded popular song in history, topped only by The Beatles' "Yesterday". The version that actually launched the song internationally is, of course, the one performed by Astrud Gilberto, along with Jo„o Gilberto and Stan Getz, from the 1963 album Getz/Gilberto. The first commercial recording was in 1962, by Pery Ribeiro. Numerous recordings have been used in movies, often as an elevator music clichť.

Okay, let's try this. In the sixties and early seventies there were three songs which received airtime on our local stations (made it into the top 20 countdown) where the name of the song is the same as the name of the group (in some cases, the group's name has an extra "s" o the end). Can you name the three.

One group contained a former actor from a popular TV sitcom. The flip side of the record, by the way, is the song title backwards and the song is played backwards (talk about only having one hit).

One group were the back-up singers for a famous singer late in his career.

The third group has a brassy sound (at least on this record).
