If you have followed me for any length of time, you probably know that I have a huge collection of digital music files ranging the gamut from classical to pop to heavy metal, symphonic metal, rock ‘n’ roll, novelty, country, blues, jazz…. I don’t have any hip hop or rap because too often their lyrics are just plain gross, crass, or otherwise not appropriate for my virgin ears. Readers who might be wondering what my favorite music or groups are can see a list here: My top rock/pop/metal groups of all time.
I’m strange in that I listen to my music in chronological order. By listening to an average of 15 “CDs” each day, it takes me about ten months to listen to all my music. I just finished 2014 last Friday, and I’ve already been through the ’30s, ’40s, ’50s, and half of the ’60s this past weekend.
I noticed as I was going through that early music that quite a bit of it has titles involving birds.
Zoey the Cool Cat and I like birds, so I thought birds would be a good topic for today’s Music on Mondays post.
“A Little Bird Told Me”
Evelyn Knight & The Stardusters
“Poisoning Pigeons In The Park”
“Wings Of A Dove”
“Let’s Turkey Trot”
Jan & Dean
“Feed The Birds”
Simon & Garfunkel
“Little Red Rooster”
The Rolling Stones
That takes us through 1964. Since this was so much fun, I think I’ll do it again somewhere down the line. Off the top of my head this morning I can think of “Blackbird” by The Beatles (1968), “Silverbird” by Mark Lindsay (1970), “Hummingbird” by Seals & Crofts (1972), “Freebird” by Lynyrd Skynyrd (1974), “Bird Noises” by Midnight Oil (1980), “Free As A Bird” by Supertramp (1987), and “Free As A Bird” by John Lennon/The Beatles (1977/1995).
