AdLib On September - 10 - 2010

It’s that time of year, when the lazy, fun-filled days of Summer hit a brick wall and it’s back to studying geometry in Mr. Neidermeyer’s class. Still, school had its fun memories for all of us and that’s today’s theme for our music thread, music that reminds you of when you were in high school (or any other school!).

I remember buying this album as a birthday present for a friend in high school, it had a label which proclaimed how “new” the music was…little did they know back then that their songs would one day be labeled “classic rock”:

Boston – Smokin’

More of the soundtrack I recall from high school years:

Foreigner – Cold as Ice

Boz Skaggs – Lido

ELO – Do Ya

The Ramones – Rock and Roll High School

Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody

Led Zeppelin – In the Evening

Pink Floyd – Dogs

Your turn!

      How can it be that I have never seen that, b’ito? But it’s true! Very cool.

      What was that show?

      I recognized the “kitchen table set,” because one of my favorite songs ever was also recorded on that show. I found it on YouTube, but it didn’t mention the name of the show, or I missed it if it did. I never watched the show on TV:

      This is another version, from Yale, that’s so pretty, too:

        k’es, bingo!! both were recorded on a show called
        Rainbow Quest with Pete Seeger
        They were rally good! The Pennywhistlers!!
        Here are the words for that song:

        How I would like to have a shop
        In the town of Struga
        Hurry, young Kalino

        To sit by the door
        And watch the young girls of Struga go by
        Hurry, young Kalino

        As they fetch water
        With their brightly colored jugs
        Hurry, young Kalino

        And meet with their friends at the well
        Hurry, young Kalino

          Never saw the show, b’ito, but I love that song. Thanks so much for posting the translation. I knew it had something to do with “owning a shop,” and that the title was “Shto Mi e Milo.”

          I love choral folk singing of all kinds and these harmonies are so lovely.

    This guy became a little popular when I was in high school. I think he did a few albums.

    Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young (always sounded like the name of a law firm, but they could sing)

    There wasn’t a local band that didn’t play this number.

  6. bitohistory says:

  7. bitohistory says:
