Sugar and Spice

Happy Friday all!

We've have 2 days of glorious sunshine here on the east coast. It's been a cold, wet, windy, raw spring this year. I'm not going to complain too much because the rain has been watering my plants and filling up little lakes and ponds in the area that have become so low in the few past years.

The rainy days give me time to get some things done inside that need to be done and the warm sunny days I have been outside working in the yard.

It's all good.

Today's Sugar and Spice song has been stuck in my head for over a week already and so perhaps if I post it here I will get it out and push it on to all of you!

Originally the song came from a musical that made it's debut back in 1967. I was but a wee lass at the time so I don't remember it, but there were plenty of song from the musical that made it to the radio. Among them were: Aquarius, Donna and of course Hair.

But the song that has been stuck in my head for over a week now is Good Morning Starshine!

Oliver climbed the charts to #3 here in the states with his cover of Starshine in 1969 and with lyrics like:

Gliddy glub gloopy
Nibby nabby noopy
La la la lo lo

You can see why!

You can also see the effects of the drugs people where taking when they wrote that song!

I have this mental picture of some guy in a beanbag chair, trippin' out on LSD muttering:

Sabba sibby sabba
Nooby abba nabba
Le le lo lo

Someone in the background saying: "wow, that is like totally cool man. I think that would make a great song."

Far out!

For your spring time ear worm and sugar sweet song of the week I give you: Good Morning Starshine by Oliver (the video kind of sucks so just listen)



Happy weekend all and I hope where ever you are you are getting a nice taste of spring!

Peace, love and all that good stuff!

I have absolutely, positively, no memory of that, at. all.

Thank goodness. ;-)

Woah!
Now that's brought back all manner of scary memories, Shazza.
Unfeasibly wonderful and strange.
God, I feel old … but kinda good about it.

Okay. I got the fricken earworm.
Did you know they are re-making "Hair" on Broadway? I used to sing all of those songs in a weeping willow tree just outside of Mainland Regional High School. Yes, I was cutting class to sit in a tree. It was 1973 or 4.
