Imaginary Lovers March 20, 2011

Posted by Michael in Stupid shit.
trackback

Yup, the header refers to an Atlanta Rhythm Section classic.  Hippies actually did some good stuff.

Here’s how it sounds on a vinyl album at 33 rpm.

So, lets just say you were a radio station disc jockey previously playing a 45 rpm single, and forgot to change speeds before playing the LP version of Imaginary Lover. What contemporary artist did it sound like?!?

Thanks to Retired Geezer for the tip, and see a hint below the break if you don’t recognize the voice.

Wow, Andy!

Talk about bad timing for this post!!!

(I actually like the 45 rpm version much better. Fleetwood Mac should have done this song.)

Great song.

Imaginary lovers, never dis-agree.

65. Michael - March 20, 2011

Right down to the tone, pitch and vibrato, it sounds like Stevie Nicks.

I covered it though.

I had two bowls of Captain Crunch for lunch. Alert the media.

All that stuff about the cereal company not promoting it any more because it’s bad for you reminded me how good it tastes.

69. daveintexas - March 20, 2011

70. kevl - March 20, 2011

Capn Crunch is da bomb but it tears up the inside of your mouth. The crunch cuts pretty deep. Good stuff.

71. Lipstick - March 20, 2011

Yep Dave, I’m a REBEL!!! Rough, tough, scooter-riding badass.

72. Lipstick - March 20, 2011

Kevl, what’s shakin?

73. GrumpyUnk - March 20, 2011

That is downright spooky how much that sounds like Stevie Nicks.

I always thought that was a creepy assed song and wondered just who in the hell would want their name on that as the songwriter. Hell, it still gets airplay and ASCAP is probably helping out the writer even now.

Several of the guys in the ARSection were part of the band, The Classics IV. Listen to their hit songs, “Stormy” or “Spooky” and you can hear the connection.

I worked the Anthony Newley show at Caesars Palace back in the 70’s. He sang Pop Goes the Weasel after explaining what he thought it was about.

Perhaps because of the obscure nature of the lyrics there have been many suggestions for their significance, particularly over the meaning of the phrase ‘Pop! goes the weasel’, including: that it is a tailor’s flat iron, a hatter’s tool, a clock reel used for measuring in spinning,[5] a piece of silver plate, or that ‘weasel and stoat’ is Cockney rhyming slang for ‘coat’, which is ‘popped or pawned’ to visit or after visiting the Eagle pub, that it is a mishearing of weevil or vaisselle, that it was a nickname of James I, and that ‘rice’ and ‘treacle’ are slang terms for potassium nitrate and charcoal and that therefore the rhyme refers to the gunpowder plot.

Obviously Dave’s explanation is the only one that will hold, uh… water.

I’m sorry, but I died laughing after DinT’s entry for worst masturbation song:

Come on Eileen

I don’t wanna brag but I think I pretty much won the internets with that one.

Come On Eileen

259. daveintexas - March 23, 2011

260. Michael - March 23, 2011

Tequila Sunrise cracked me up too.

Maybe its a guy thing.

261. Retired Geezer - March 23, 2011

I didn’t get it either

*scratches bald spot*

*tears corner off man card*

262. Michael - March 23, 2011

(Pssst, Geezer, nobody got it. We’re just yankin’ Laura’s chain. I’m chuckling right now imagining her asking Scott to explain Tequila Sunrise.)

263. Cathy - March 23, 2011

Tequila Sunrise cracked me up too.

Maybe its a guy thing.

Um. I got it. And I’m betting Laura got it too…

264. lauraw - March 23, 2011

*hangs head*

No. Still no.

*shuffles off to eat paint chips off the windowsill*

265. doc - March 23, 2011

Aight, who broke the blog?

266. Cathy - March 23, 2011

Who touched it last?

*peers over sunglasses at Laura*

267. lauraw - March 23, 2011

*chews a paint chip with pie-eyed innocence*

268. Dave in Texas - March 23, 2011

I do think Pop Goes The Weasel was an easy second place entry.

Papa Can You Hear Me?

Both Ronnie Hammond and Stevie Nicks were interviewed about this phenomenon when it was first discovered, and both were astounded. I think Stevie did perform it live at one point, but I’m not sure. Can’t “imagine” Ronnie would have a problem with Stevie and he being mentioned in the same sentence. She’s still a pretty hot witch!

Oh, that last post in response to post #3, and the following as a response to just about every post since:

“Fat Man in a Bathtub” and “Welcome to the Pleasure Dome”
