Hey, how about --UP ON THE ROOF ? Can't remember the title, or the group, but I love it! Anyway, if anyone knows the song I'm talking about, please let me know... James Taylor--"Need a Friend"--is also great. I'm like you-- Lyn, love classic rock, music always soothes my soul... lol L

See the tree, how big it's grown
But friend it hasn't been too long
It wasn't big
I laughed at her and she got mad
The first day that she planted it, was just a twig
Then the first snow came
And she ran out to brush the snow away
So it wouldn't die
Came runnin' in all excited
Slipped and almost hurt herself
And I laughed till I cried
She was always young at heart
Kinda dumb and kinda smart and I loved her so
And I surprised her with a puppy
Kept me up all Christmas Eve two years ago
And it would sure embarrass her
When I came in from workin' late
'Cause I would know
That she'd been sittin' there and cryin'
Over some sad and silly late, late show

And honey, I miss you
And I'm bein' good
And I'd love to be with you
If only I could

She wrecked the car and she was sad
And so afraid that I'd be mad
But what the heck
Though I pretended hard to be
Guess you could say she saw through me
And hugged my neck
I came home unexpectedly
And caught her cryin' needlessly
In the middle of the day
And it was in the early Spring
When flowers bloom and robins sing
She went away

And honey, I miss you
And I'm bein' good
And I'd love to be with you
If only I could

One day while I was not at home
While she was there and all alone
The angels came
Now all I have is memories of Honey
And I wake up nights and call her name
Now my life's an empty stage
Where Honey lived and Honey played
And love grew up
And a small cloud passes overhead
And cries down on the flower bed
That Honey loved

And see the tree how big it's grown
But friend it hasn't been too long
It wasn't big
And I laughed at her and she got mad
The first day that she planted it, was just a twig

Here you go Lyn............ cool
 
Mr. Big Stuff
Who do you think you are
Mr. Big Stuff
You're never gonna get my love

Now because you wear all those fancy clothes (oh yeah)
And have a big fine car, oh yes you do now
Do you think I can afford to give you my love (oh yeah)
You think you're higher than every star above turn

How about Marty Robbin's

A white sports coat and a pink carnation
I'm all dressed up for the dance
A white sports coat and a pink carnation
I'm all alone in romance

Once you told me long ago
To the prom with me you'd go
Now you've changed your mind it seems
Someone else will hold my dreams

A white sports coat and a pink carnation
I'm in a blue blue mood.

I'm all dressed up for the dance
I'm all alone in romance ♪♫•*¨*•.¸¸❤¸¸.•*¨*•☆.。.•*✿

Old Hippy,
 
The Drifters sang Up on the Roof.
 
When this old world starts getting me down
And people are just too much for me to face
I climb way up to the top of the stairs
And all my cares just drift right into space
On the roof, it's peaceful as can be
And there the world below can't bother me
Let me tell you now

When I come home feelin' tired and beat
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet (up on the roof)
I get away from the hustling crowd
And all that rat-race noise down in the street (up on the roof)
On the roof, the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so
Let's go up on the roof (up on the roof)  yeah

 
Come on everyone share your oldies here,  doesn't matter what era.  Music is good for the soul and helps lift your spirits.
 
Thanks Lyn - good thread !

thanks Kitt! Whenever I hear <UP ON THE ROOF> something inside me glows... The song by Bobby Russel is <also> one of my classic favorites; even though I didn't recognize it at first... Music & Dancing are great stress-releasers and something we can all do, in public, or at home in private. For me, they are the best depression & anxiety busters and it costs nothing to partake in them. The only time that I feel <truly> free--nowadays, is when I am singing & dancing to oldies... Great thread, <Lyn> keep them coming! peace out... L

I'm always walking around with songs in my head! No lie!! All it takes is for me to hear a name or a phrase and I'm off to musicland! I'm bad about singing to people who's names are also song titles! Truly! For example, I was at Publix and the cashier's name tag said "Laura". I looked at her and sang "Tell Laura I love her! Tell Laura I need her!" turn

Another cashier at Po Folks is named Charlotte. Immediately I heard Patti Page singing "Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte"! The cashier is too young to know the song, but what the heck, heh?! LOL! smilewinkgrin

When I'm helping mom clean the offices, I sing my heart out as the vacuum is roaring! tongue

I LOVE the Oldies! Please don't play the new stuff!

And Lyn, I love "Honey"! It's corny and all, but I'm not ashamed to say I adore it! rolleyes

i so love this song........

Hey lady, you lady, cursing at your life
You're a discontented mother and a regimented wife
I've no doubt you dream about the things you'll never do
But, I wish someone had talked to me
Like I wanna talk to you.....

Oh, I've been to Georgia and California and anywhere I could run
I took the hand of a preacher man and we made love in the sun
But I ran out of places and friendly faces because I had to be free
I've been to paradise but I've never been to me

Please lady, please lady, don't just walk away
'Cause I have this need to tell you why I'm all alone today
I can see so much of me still living in your eyes
Won't you share a part of a weary heart that has lived million lies....

Oh, I've been to Niece and the Isle of Greece while I've sipped champagne on a yacht
I've moved like Harlow in Monte Carlo and showed 'em what I've got
I've been undressed by kings and I've seen some things that a woman ain't supposed to see
I've been to paradise, but I've never been to me

[spoken]
Hey, you know what paradise is?
It's a lie, a fantasy we create about people and places as we'd like them to be
But you know what truth is?
It's that little baby you're holding, it's that man you fought with this morning
The same one you're going to make love with tonight
That's truth, that's love......

Sometimes I've been to crying for unborn children that might have made me complete
But I took the sweet life, I never knew I'd be bitter from the sweet
I've spent my life exploring the subtle whoring that costs too much to be free
Hey lady......
I've been to paradise, (I've been to paradise)
But I've never been to me

(I've been to Georgia and California, and anywhere I could run)
I've been to paradise, never been to me
(I've been to Neice and the isle of Greece while I've sipped champagne on a yacht)
I've been to paradise, never been to me
(I've been to cryin' for unborn children that might have made me complete)
I've been to paradise, never been to me
(I've been to Georgia and California, and anywhere I could run)
I've been to paradise, never been to me

Good one Lyn !
 
I am a huge CCR ( Creedence Clearwater Revival) fan. 
 
I see the bad moon arising.
I see trouble on the way.
I see earthquakes and lightnin'.
I see bad times today.

Don't go around tonight,
Well, it's bound to take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise.

I hear hurricanes ablowing.
I know the end is coming soon.
I fear rivers over flowing.
I hear the voice of rage and ruin.
 
And of course their "Proud Mary" was my all time favorite and I thought they wrote it just for me  smhair

Here you go Lyn  :)
 
Is she really going out with him?
Well, there she is. Let's ask her.
Betty, is that Jimmy's ring you're wearing?
Mm-hmm
Gee, it must be great riding with him
Is he picking you up after school today?
Uh-uh
By the way, where'd you meet him?

I met him at the candy store
He turned around and smiled at me
You get the picture? (yes, we see)
That's when I fell for (the leader of the pack)

My folks were always putting him down (down, down)
They said he came from the wrong side of town
(whatcha mean when ya say that he came from the wrong side of town?)
They told me he was bad
But I knew he was sad
That's why I fell for (the leader of the pack)

Honey by Bobby Goldsboro from Alabama.  Right on.  Did you know that Wilson Pickett and others recorded their hits not in Motown, but in Muscle Shoals---Alabama.  I'm glad to hear that some of you northern folk were raised right and you know your country classics.

I love tearjerkers...the sadder, the better! LOL!
Now there's two songs that are sad, but I don't consider them "tearjerkers" because they're NOT meant to make you cry, but to think.
They are:
Bright Eyes by Art Garfunkel (listen on youtube! It's so very beautiful!)
Mary Was An Only Child by Art Garfunkel (listen on you tube to this one also! Breathtaking!)

Lyrics
Bright Eyes

Is it a kind of a dream
Floating out on the tide
Following the river of death downstream
Oh is it a dream?
There's a fog along the horizon
A strange glow in the sky
And nobody seems to know where it goes
And what does it mean?
Oh is it a dream?

Bright eyes, burning like fire
Bright eyes, how can you close and fail?
How can the light that burned so brightly,
Suddenly burn so pale?
Bright eyes

Is it a kind of a shadow
Reaching into the night
Wandering over the hills unseen
Oh is it a dream?
There's a high wind in the trees
A cold sound in the air
And nobody ever knows where you go
And where do you start?
Oh into the dark

Bright eyes, burning like fire
Bright eyes, how can you close and fail?
How can the light that burned so brightly,
Suddenly burn so pale?
Bright eyes

Bright eyes, burning like fire
Bright eyes, how can you close and fail?
How can the light that burned so brightly,
Suddenly burn so pale?
Bright eyes

Mary Was An Only Child Lyrics

Mary was an only child,
Nobody held her, nobody smiled.
She was born in a trailer, wretched and poor,
And she shone like a gem in a five and dime store.

Mary had no friends at all,
Just famous faces pinned to the wall.
All of them watched her, none of them saw
That she shone like a gem in a five and dime store.

And if you watch the stars at night,
And find them shining equally bright,
You might have seen Jesus and not have known what you saw.
Who would notice a gem in a five and dime store?
