If you pay attention to the lyrics, Take On Me is a depressing song.

Besides her work with Kris she and her sister Priscilla and niece Laura Satterfield sang in a group called ''Walela'' (translates to hummingbird) and they sang in both English and Cherokee. 

Sadly her sister Priscilla was murdered and that was the end of the group. She now lives in Tallahassee FL.

You know that I need your love
You've got that hold over me
As long as I've got your love
You know I'll never leave
I wanted you to share my life
I had no doubt in my mind
And it's been you, oh baby
Right down the line

I apologize for not knowing how to paste an embedded video.

Everyone loves whorehouses.  This song was a traditional "folk song" dating back to the 1920s. 

The House of the Rising Sun was a hit for Eric Burton and the Animals in 1964.

This is a 1970 cover by Frigid Pink (their "one hit wonder") with superior guitar.

Walk down memory lane for me , i played this for my dad after i went into the service one night of sitting with him drinking , it brought him to tears because his dad had just passed , my kids grew up with me listening and attmpting to play this and sing it , 

back in june after the last grandson was born i was playing around with the son in aws guitar and sitting by my new grandsons bassinet and was picking this out and started singing . when i stopped my daughter was in tears , my other grandkids were in awe that grandpa , who doesnt show emotion much , had such emotion in him .

 yeah this one means a lot to me .

The leader of the band is tired
And his eyes are growing old
But his blood runs through
My instrument
And his song is in my soul --
My life has been a poor attempt
To imitate the man
I'm just a living legacy
To the leader of the band.

There are some people who look at this phase of Dylan's career with a heavy dose skepticism. I think one should look at every phase of Dylan's career with a heavy dose skepticism. Ultimately every Bob Dylan song is about himself and his relationship with his audience. And usually that relationship is a comparison that plays out great for Dylan and not so great for his audience. But before you reach that conclusion on your own you are exposed to some really brilliant lyrics. Then we have his trio of albums where he explores, or perhaps sets the standard for, Christian Rock. I think it is some of his best work. Let's all suspend disbelief in the unbelievable and and rock out to some incredible "what if even Dylan believed in Jesus" rock'n'roll.

Over the years, I have had the pleasure of attending several bachelor parties.

Some bachelor parties start to at strip clubs.  The ritual is to invite the groom up on stage where a stripper dressed in a white bridal gown serves him champagne.

Then this song fires up and the stripper slowly removes the wedding gown and teases the groom.  It's extremely "romantic" (erotic).

Yuck.

People getting married should not be wallowing in all that they are supposedly giving up. People lucky enough to be finding life partners don't need bachelor parties and hall passes.

Here are two well known songs that most people would be surprised to learn were both written by Neil Sedaka

Workin' On A Groovy Thing - Neil Sedaka

Where The Boys Are - Neil Sedaka

PATTI DREW - WORKIN' ON A GROOVY THING (RARE CLIP 1968)

JR, I did not know that Neil Sedaka wrote this treasure of a song. It will always be in my heart, though I have not song or hummed it in decades! But I immediately remembered it when you posted it! Good find, good presentation. This is how I became introduced to this amazing song, above. Great cross-over appeal.

NOTE. It is always interesting and sometimes a surprise to know that a song began its story on another side of the tracks. Very rarely, especially back in the day, were we informed that song sharing was occurring through the radio broadcasts/djs. Leading to 'permanent' misunderstandings that a song is a property of the topical presenter at the time.

NOTE: This delightful song was done by the Fifth Dimensions in 1969 too. (And now I don't know which set of singers I was originally introduced to this song at the time! Could have been both sets on the radio!)
