BrewNSpew Cafe – June 11, 2018

65202-Moving-Clouds

Tuesday Chatter Café has changed its name to BrewNSpew Café.

BrewNSpew Café is open 24/7. Posts from BrewNSpew Café will be published on Monday.

“There is nothing permanent except change”- Heraclitus

Word of the weektransmogrify-verb (humorous)-transform, especially in a surprising or magical manner.

verb: transmogrify; 3rd person present: transmogrifies; past tense: transmogrified; past participle: transmogrified; gerund or present participle: transmogrifying

Let’s noodle the why’s and ways of the world

Seems value of life caught up in a twirl

Aha moments transmogrify into oh no’s

Ethics and morals strained by anything goes

Gaia is distressed about mother nature

Due to issues with her behavior

Seems her struggles caught in a whirl

As she wakes on the wrong side of the world

Still, mother nature continues to amaze

Though her persona obviously crazed

Will today be partly sunny or partly cloudy

Lovely and calm or boisterous and rowdy

Whatever the forecast it’s subject to change

You know, since I’ve selected change by way of alterations to my blog, June 12, offered many changes during some umpteen years. While I was researching trivia from yesteryear, I noticed a lot of interesting tidbits relating to music and wondered how some tunes and artists would fare today.

Some of you may be too young to remember this stuff but for those older folk, you may find this entertaining.

For example, and this one goes back to 1954. Bill Haley’s “Rock Around the Clock”, (this is the best known and most successful rendition of the song) was recorded for American Decca. The song is ranked #158 on the “Rolling Stone” magazine’s list of “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time” Well, a lot has happened since then so let’s capture some memories from more recent years-

1965-Sonny and Cher make their first TV debut on American Bandstand

1966-The Dave Clark Five appear for the twelfth time on the Ed Sullivan Show

1970-Janis Joplin, a rocker and blues singer, debuts in KY

1982-Simon and Garfunkel perform in Rotterdam

1990– Mariah Carey debuts her album “Mariah Carey”

2008-Coldplay released their album ” Viva la Vida or Death”, winner of three Grammys

Yes, these are just tidbits and barely make a dent in the world of music but I feel an interesting array of sounds and artists.

    ‘waking up on the wrong side of the world’ struck a chord today. Don’t ask why 😦

    Eugenia,

    It’s definitely partly cloudy and it may be a boisterous and rowdy day with the threat of thunderstorms in our forecast. Great poem! 1954 was before my birth but the song is a classic for all generations. Excellent mewsic trivia. I know all of the groups that you mentioned. 🙂

    Thank you for another interesting visit to the cafe Eugenia. I like your point about how some of the artists you mentioned would fare today. My daughter who is 19 loves most of the music I listened to in the 70s,80s and 90s. I introduced her to Simon and Garfunkel a short while ago (Bridge Over Troubled Water) and she said it was amazing. I think some artists are timeless.

      Thank you for your comment, Davy. I agree some artists are timeless, which IMHO, that’s what makes life more meaningful. We can relate to memories we enjoyed.

    You had me at the photo of crows and verse. As I read I reminisced each song, note by note. Good talk, Eugenia!
