the best songs ever

You'll do what you want, I know. So if you want to be consistent with what you are saying here, don't bother me if I post something about Justin Bieber anywhere I want. JB is far better than what you often post from the 3T, in MY book. And it's a good book.

It depends on what the word, "bother" means of course. It's up to you to determine if any snark wrt he who shall not be mentioned "bothers" you.  It's like Captain Planet always says, "The Power is yours".

Nope, I did not post the muppet show videos. That was Gabrielle. I did think it was funny though and a great observation. I did not think it was to censor the thread. I think it was an observation from her.

My point was, Rags, if you say "I am posting in the wrong thread," when and if I put up a Justin Bieber song or comment, as you often do, then you are not being consistent or fair if you defend what you did here on this thread. But you can say what you want.

As you know, I am guiding the thread back in time, and my posts reflect that. I am making the audacious attempt to cover the best songs ever, and others can contribute. Since your best songs ever are in the 3T era, that's where to post them; I mean, if you want to respect the subject of threads. No-one says you have to. We have also passed back beyond the 2T. But if you can tie it into the subjects being discussed, that's cool in my opinion.

No it wasn't she who put the muppet show here. Anyone who can read (which doesn't include terrormarie) knows I wasn't tryng to "censor" anything. Anyone who begins a thread has the option of telling people when they are off subject, and/or suggesting what a more appropo place to post it is. So no-one can try to censor me for saying that, either. Terrormarie tries, however.

Terrormarie can stfu. She is the worst poster on the site right now. I will never read her posts if I can help it. I will never click on "read this post." She is as bad as vandal and kinser. She is malevolent and disreputable.

If he can contribute he should be allowed to. He stated why it was appropriate but apparently he is messing up your chronological order. Which is odd because you never said the same to me. You say people can contribute then in the same breath say you do not think it should be there because you do not think it fits despite the fact he said he thinks it belongs in the "best songs category." You sir, do not read. It was not off subject and he stated why.

Casablanca. One of the best movies ever; thrilling plot, great acting, and some of the best movie lines ever. And the #2 movie song ever, "As Time Goes By," according to critics. #1 is coming up!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/As_Time_Goes_By_(song)

Originally from 1931, and from the movie of 1942.

Edit: another great version by one of my favorite oldie but goodie people, Jimmy Durante.

Eeeeh wrong. I do not try to censor you. However common sense should be about treating others kindly (you do not care about that though). In fact blocking me is your way of censoring what you do not want to see. I will never block you. I believe in speaking my mind as you should too UNLESS IT IS UNFAIR TO OTHERS. Call it common sense.

No, i will never stfu. I do not know about this vandal but kinser makes fabulous points and also sees you for who you are. Just because you have blocked me does not mean i will not stop posting. I simply consider everyone while you do not. You think you are inclusive but you are the exact opposite of that and THAT is where we have our origin of the dispute.

Come again. How is posting that particular song in the wrong thread if I think it's one of my "best songs ever" ?.  Next, since I found it recently, I don't know how to stick in the order of things you'd like.  [ Perhaps you can hit Dan'82" up and see if he order posts in threads. ] I really don't really care about the order of posts as long as the posts still make sense.

1. Yes, there's a 3T songs thread.

1.  I fixed the ad-hom.  I do that when somebody appends an "obtuse" to you, so I'm being fair.
2. Uh, the censorship was a reference to Eric The Green having a hissy fit due to Rags posting a song out of order.  I even might be even be able to insert a post in the "correct" place, but I don't expect Dan'82 to just give me the key to his server.

What is odd about that is that I also placed songs I liked into his thread earlier on not in the correct order yet he never complained. Another point is that he says we are free to post what we like then he says to you that it is better elsewhere. Is he coming or going????

Yes, you have a point.

Quote:Next, since I found it recently, I don't know how to stick in the order of things you'd like.  [ Perhaps you can hit Dan'82" up and see if he order posts in threads. ] I really don't really care about the order of posts as long as the posts still make sense.

In this case, posting in the other thread would have fit better and made more sense. It was only ever a suggestion. So, you knew "how to stick in the order of things you'd like." But I understand you might want to just post what you think is a best song ever, and that I am probably going to disagree with your choice if it's from the 3T era. Sometimes you might not be clear on where in time we are, too. Gabrielle has chosen to do something similar with the 3T era thread, going forwards. She is not "censoring" anything though.

So, if you want to post a best song ever "out of order," I'll just resume with the order. If you want to respect my suggestion, you can post a 3T era song in the other "lost years" gabrielle-started thread, and a 4T rock song in your thread. You don't want me to post a JB song in your 4T rock thread, do you? I think you had a bit of a hissy fit when I did. So the other poster created another thread more appropo of 4T pop.

What I am doing is waiting until I get to the period when the song came out. I even started making a little list and finding the dates on wiki after we passed to before the era of my top 400 list. Sometimes I forget one, like Pete Seeger's "Waist Deep in the Big Muddy," since it was only heard on a TV appearance, and wasn't a hit record or anything I knew from those 1968 days; but luckily the first words of the song tied in to where I was, 1942. So, connections and tie-ins; see?

Sorry if it felt like a hissy fit. You startled me! It was just a suggestion of where to post the song. At the start of this thread, it seemed you were trying to disrupt it, according to what you wrote; maybe because I posted a JB song there.

I don't know if you can understand or appreciate or agree with what I am trying to do here. But I can't censor you; I am not empowered to do that even if I wanted to. You are free to post what you want, where you want.

Quote:I won't get involved with the above. It's none of my business.

Good. I wish that she would take the same attitude in regard to what I discuss with others. But it's hopeless.

I think we have more than covered this matter.

Casablanca. One of the best movies ever; thrilling plot, great acting, and some of the best movie lines ever. And the #2 movie song ever, "As Time Goes By," according to critics. #1 is coming up!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/As_Time_Goes_By_(song)

Originally from 1931, and from the movie of 1942.

My favorite movie, too. We're talking about music and not movies. If William Shakespeare had written a screenplay in modern English, this would be the screenplay. I also see an allusion to the Divine Comedy, in which Nazi Germany and its occupied and satellite countries are Hell, America and Britain are Paradise, and a place like Casablanca, a way-station to America is Purgatory. Well, before ISIS, Nazis were the closest things to demons in human form, right?

It's not so much an introduction of any song, but who can forget the stirring incident in which the Nazis start their rendition of Die Wacht am Rhein, only for the refugee patrons of Rick's American Bar to out-sing them in the Marseillaise.

I noted on another thread that the movie in which "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" was introduced, Keep 'em Flying, was the #1 hit on Pearl Harbor Day. Had the fascists made note of that they might have been leery of attacking America. Americans may not have wanted war, but they were emotionally prepared. America would need to militarize its economy, but that could be done quickly and without undue hardship. The movie was a comedy but it showed America deadly-serious in its will for survival.

Pop culture reflects the mass attitudes of the time, and America was not the soft, weak, vulnerable prey that some thought it was.

String of Pearls, 1942.





Ironically the clarinet part was to be played by the great trumpeter Harry James, but he got a lip injury and could not play. A B-flat clarinetist can play any trumpet part without transposition, and Glenn Miller gave the part to clarinetists. Nobody would now think of playing the trumpet part in the original on a trumpet today!

Pennsylvania 6-5000.





Enough said.

Does anyone have any question of the greatness of the pop music of the Big Band Era?

My only comparisons for pop music:

George Gershwin (which we will surely get to fairly soon)

Strauss waltzes (then low-brow)

Mozart at his best

Handel at his best

Mozart and Handel were pop music in their time.

I will certainly post La Marseillaise when we get to 1792 (but not the American Marseillaise of 1814); I even wrote that all romantic music is based on it. Don't know if it's true, but it certainly inspired the young artists and musicians in its time. "The finest spirits were enraptured" said Kenneth Clark.

As for String of Pearls, your video didn't play again, but I already posted it Smile Yes I knew about the other song too. If you or no-one else has anything more to post from the forties, then I'll plunge back into the thirties (but which starts with 1940). Speaking of movie songs, it's the best and signature Disney song.

Click the video twice (the second time click on "watch this video on you tube") and watch on you tube.

Kind of a contrast with the reality of the time. 4T music was a lot like that, and is today. I guess I like these kind of idealistic star, sky and better day songs, don't I? It'd figure.

This song is so evocative of a certain era due to the Platters' version that many don't realize this song was actually written in the mid forties.
