This Meme Is Brought To You By The Letter "N"

I have been tagged by Flagpolesitta. I have been charged with coming up with 5 songs that begin with the letter "N".

Here goes:

1. Never Ending Song of Love-Delaney & Bonnie OR Patty Loveless and Dwight Yoakam.

2. Never Been To Spain- Creedence Clearwater Revival (Elvis did a bang up job on this one, too)

3. New York Mining Disaster, 1941 - Bee Gees

4. North To Alaska- Johnny Horton

5. Nowhere Man-The Beatles

He said 5, but, I thought of a couple more:

6. Nashville Cats-The Lovin' Spoonful OR Del McCoury Band

7. Norwegian Wood-The Beatles

8. Nightlife-Willie, Ray Price and a bunch of other people.

So, I guess this means I have to tag someone else...who will it be?

Never Been To Spain was also done by Three Dog Night, and was written by late Hoyt Axton, who was a great song writer and always fun to see in a movie.

Nashville Cats was a favorite of mine as a kid. I think it was on the B side of the 45 of Lovin' Spoonfuls song Summer In The City.

I MEANT Three Dog Night...duh. I should never post so early! HA!

I had the cool priviledge to hang with Hoyt and I knew his mother very well. Hoyt was an amazing talent. Besides a great writer, he was a doggone good character actor.

Blogarita stole my thunder about Three Dog Night. Dang. I had no idea that Elvis did it too.

I also just found Nashville Cats recently - had never heard it. It's a pretty rockin tune.

Blogarita said...

Ok, I give. Give me a letter.

My Bloggin Sista...you get the letter E.

(I promise you were the one I was gonna tag anyway!)

Blogarita said...

>>Man, I haven't even heard of most of those.

This is one of the very few advantages to being old....... ah...sorry sista,I meant to say knowledgable, about the music.

I can remember when this old boy who listened to nothing but country music who happened to hear a couple of those bad ole rock songs, The Pusher and Joy to the World. Both, I think,also written by Hoyt. Changed my horizon a little.
Another song that just crossed my mind, though it has never been too far from it, is Kay by John Wesley Ryles and more recently by Daryle Singletary. I think it is the most lovelorn, lonely,dedicated to love , pitiful songs to come out of and talk of, the actual nashville musical experience, from the wrong side.
Ah, now I gotta find me a tissue...

I was 2 when Never Been To Spain was released...I was 1 when Never Ending Song was released ...the rest came out before I had ever seen the light of day. So, yay! I don't actually remember when they were all out as "current" songs.
