Welcome indeed! Wow, it’s been great seeing all the new “faces,” yesterday and the day before. Some of you I know already and some of you I am looking forward to getting to know. You’ve found a great place to hang out, with some
great like minded people.
Pick your favorite tunes that are about being welcome and welcoming others. Post songs about love, friendship, feeling
good, family and togetherness. Have fun and don’t forget to smile while you’re at it. I am looking forward to some great tunes from all of you.

Here’s an oldie but goodie. The Youngbloods, “Get Together.”
Killgore, massive apologies on this mixup! This post was accidentally poofed! But as you see, not for good. Now, we have two Kilgore Trout music threads for the price of one, what a wonderful weekend deal!!!
Once again, big fat apologies!!!
Smotpoker, you must like Willie. He smoked plenty , I think.
Willie who? lol
I met this band in Singapore in the late 90’s or early 2000’s. They were staying at the Stamford Hilton as was I. When I checked in the desk clerk asked me if I was with the band. I asked what band? She said Def Leppard. I briefly considered saying absolutely….Ended up running into the boys at the bar, had a few drinks. I got some pics, and their autographs for my kid brother which he still has to this today.
Def Leppard – Pour Some Sugar On Me
Speaking of 70s funk;
David Bowie – Fame
Ooooh! Good choice.
I met this band in the early 80’s when I was in the US Navy and stationed down in Florida. They were playing a medium size bar/music joint. Drank some alcohol with the boys, and at the end of the night they let me hop on the drums for a song. A night to remember.
The Guess Who – American Woman
Great band, and a great experience for you SP.
The very first song I learned all the words to… Edgar Winter – Frankenstein.
Another great choice.
Poor little fool. Makes me think of the TPers. Fools.
Speaking of Boston….The Bad Boys of Boston – Aerosmith – Train Kept A Rolling
“The day the music died” Ritchie Valens was on the plane.
Think how many other great songs we might have had if that plane had not crashed.
Buddy Holly too. A real tragedy!
What? Did someone say funk? Wild Cherry – Play That Funky Music
BRING THE FUNK!!!
Wanna know a secret? I had that same afro in the 70’s….#stupidthingsididinlife
You’re going to hate me for this, but these guys are from my hometown, in Steubenville Ohio. They started out playing high school dances. Great song.
The OKEH Laughing Record
What the hell did I just listen to? ROFLMAO
The OKEH Laughing record came out in the late 1920’s (78rpm of course). It has been re-released many times since and Dr. Dimento has included it on several of his collections. I discovered it in the 1970’s when I was in a band and the rhythm guitarist had a 45rpm copy.
A oldie but a goodie. Gordon Lightfoot – Sundown
LOOKING LIKE A QUEEN IN A SAILORS DREAM….
Excellent choice SP.
Ladies and Gentlemen, LINDA RONDSTAT – You’re No Good
SP, you probably know this already, but she used to sing back-up for Neil Young.
Yep. I did know that. I’ve had a crush on Linda as long as I can remember.
Another great oldie.
