February 7th – The Who record – “Pinball Wizard”

In 1969, #TheWho recorded their classic #PinballWizard #singing;#feelgood

Pinball Wizard

7-2 Pinball machine

Ever since I was a young boy,
I’ve played the silver ball.
From Soho down to Brighton
I must have played them all.
But I ain’t seen nothing like him
In any amusement hall…
That deaf dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pin ball !He stands like a statue,
Becomes part of the machine.
Feeling all the bumpers
Always playing clean.
He plays by intuition,
The digit counters fall.
That deaf dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pin ball !

He’s a pin ball wizard
There has got to be a twist.
A pin ball wizard,
S’got such a supple wrist.

‘How do you think he does it? I don’t know!
What makes him so good?’

He ain’t got no distractions
Can’t hear those buzzers and bells,
Don’t see lights a flashin’
Plays by sense of smell.
Always has a replay,
‘n’ never tilts at all…
That deaf dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pin ball.

I thought I was
The Bally table king.
But I just handed
My pin ball crown to him.

Even on my favorite table
He can beat my best.
His disciples lead him in
And he just does the rest.
He’s got crazy flipper fingers
Never seen him fall…
That deaf dumb and blind kind
Sure plays a mean pin ball.!!!!!

You’ve lost that loving feeling

6-2

You never close your eyes anymore when I kiss your lips
And there’s no tenderness like before in your fingertips
You’re trying hard not to show it, (baby)
But baby, baby I know itYou’ve lost that lovin’ feelin’
Whoa, that lovin’ feelin’
You’ve lost that lovin’ feelin’
Now it’s gone…gone…gone…woahNow there’s no welcome look in your eyes when I reach for you
And now you’re starting to criticize the things I do
It makes me just feel like crying (baby)
‘Cause baby, something beautiful’s dyingYou lost that lovin’ feelin’
Whoa, that lovin’ feelin’
You’ve lost that lovin’ feelin’
Now it’s gone…gone…gone…woah

Baby baby, I get down on my knees for you
If you would only love me like you used to do, yeah
We had a love, a love, a love you don’t find everyday
So don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t let it slip away

Baby (baby), baby (baby)
I beg of you please…please,
I need your love (I need your love),
I need your love (I need your love),
Well, bring it on back (So bring it on back),
Bring it on back (so bring it on back).

Bring back that lovin’ feelin’
Whoa, that lovin’ feelin’
Bring back that lovin’ feelin’
‘Cause it’s gone…gone…gone
And I can’t go on, woah

Bring back that lovin’ feelin’
Whoa, that lovin’ feelin’
Bring back that lovin’ feelin’
‘Cause it’s gone…gone…

February 5th – Toto at No. 1 – “Africa”

In 1983, #Toto got to No.1 with #Africa #singing;#feelgood

Africa

5-2 Africa

I hear the drums echoing tonight
But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
She’s coming in twelve-thirty flight
Her moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation
I stopped an old man along the way
Hoping to find some old forgotten words or ancient melodies
He turned to me as if to say: “Hurry boy, it’s waiting there for you”[Chorus:]
It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never hadThe wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what’s right
Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti
I seek to cure what’s deep inside, frightened of this thing that I’ve become

[Repeat chorus]

[Instrumental break]

Hurry boy, she’s waiting there for you

[Repeat chorus]

5-2 Toto Africa

Hi Ho

Well, we dig dig dig
Well, we dig in our mine the whole day through
Dig dig dig, that is what we like to do
And it ain’t no trick to get rich quick
If you dig dig dig, with a shovel and a pick
Dig dig dig, the whole day through
Got to dig dig dig, it’s what we like to do in our mine, in our mine
Where a million diamonds shine
We got to dig dig dig, from the morning till the night
Dig dig dig up everything in sight
We got to dig dig dig, in our mine, in our mine
Dig up diamonds by the score
A thousand rubies, sometimes more
But we don’t know what we are diggin’ for, yeahHeigh-ho, heigh-ho

In 1959, #BuddyHolly was killed in a plane crash. Here is one of his greatest hits #singing;#feelgood

That’ll be the day

3-2 Buddy Holly

Well, that’ll be the day, when you say goodbye
Yes, that’ll be the day, when you make me cry
You say you’re gonna leave, you know it’s a lie
‘Cause that’ll be the day when I dieWell, you give me all your lovin’ and your turtle dovin’
All your hugs and kisses and your money too
Well, you know you love me baby
Until you tell me, maybe
That some day, well I’ll be throughWell, that’ll be the day, when you say goodbye
Yes, that’ll be the day, when you make me cry
You say you’re gonna leave, you know it’s a lie
‘Cause that’ll be the day when I die

[Instrumental Interlude]

Well, that’ll be the day, when you say goodbye
Yes, that’ll be the day, when you make me cry
You say you’re gonna leave, you know it’s a lie
‘Cause that’ll be the day when I die

Well, when Cupid shot his dart
He shot it at your heart
So if we ever part and I leave you
You sit and hold me and you tell me boldly
That some day, well I’ll be blue

Well, that’ll be the day, when you say goodbye
Yes, that’ll be the day, when you make me cry
You say you’re gonna leave, you know it’s a lie
‘Cause that’ll be the day when I die

Well, that’ll be the day, hoo-hoo
That’ll be the day, hoo-hoo
That’ll be the day, hoo-hoo
That’ll be the day

3-2 Buddy Holly Thatll be the day

February 2nd – Gene Kelly dies – “Good morning”

In 1996, #GeneKelly, star of #SingingInTheRain died.  We’ve had the title song already this year,so here is Good Morning! #singing;#feelgood

Good Morning

2-2 Gene Kelly

Good Mornin’. Good Mornin’.
We’ve talked the whole night through.
Good Mornin’. Good Mornin’ to you.Good Mornin’. Good Mornin’.
It’s great to stay up late.
Good Mornin’. Good Mornin’ to you.When the band began to play
The stars were shining bright.
Now the milkman’s on his way.
It’s too late to say good night.So Good Mornin’. Good Mornin’.
Sunbeams will soon smile through.
Good Mornin’. Good Mornin’
To you and you and you and you.

Good Mornin’. Good Mornin’.
We’ve gabbed the whole night through.
Good Mornin’. Good Mornin’ to you.

(Nothin’ could be grander than to be in Louisiana)
In the Mornin’… In the Mornin’.
It’s great to stay up late.
Good Mornin’. Good Mornin’ to you.
(Might be just as zippy if we was in Missisippi.)

When we left the movie show
The future wasn’t bright.
But came the dawn, the show goes on,
And I don’t wanna say good night.

So say Good Mornin’. Good Mornin’!
Rainbows are shining through.
Good Mornin’. Good Mornin’.
Good Mornin’ to you…

2-2 Gene Kelly Good Morning

February 1st – Oxford English Dictionary first published – “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious”

In 1884 the #OED appeared for the first time.  Here is a word they didn’t have! #singing;#feelgood

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

1-2 Supercalifragi graffiti

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Even though the sound of it
Is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough
You’ll always sound precocious
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!Because I was afraid to speak
When I was just a lassy
My father gave me nose a tweak
And told me I was sassy
But then one day I learned a word
That saved me aching nose
The biggest word I ever heard
And this is how it goes:Oh, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Even though the sound of it
Is something quite atrocious
If you say it loud enough
You’ll always sound precocious
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

So when the cat has got your tongue
There’s no need for dismay
Just summon up this word
And then you’ve got a lot to say
But better use it carefully
Or it can change your life
One night I said it to me guy
And now I am his wife!

She’s supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
No matter how you use this word

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

1-2 Supercalifragi
