If Mama Cass had given that sandwich to Karen Carpenter, they’d both be alive today.

And they’d likely be annoying hippie liberals that we’d all hate.

Remakes are usually awful so I’m not surprised. Exceptions: Without You by Harry Nilsson, Bang a Gong by Power Station, Natural Woman by Aretha, Twist and Shout by The Beatles, to name a few.

How did he ever get there? A+ for you! It's our last home game of the regular season tonight against the obnoxious Stars who think they have a right to scream in the national anthem. We despise people disrupting the anthem.

Chelonian is an extremely good/ obscure word.

We didn’t have a big reception with a band so no dance after the wedding, but the first song we danced to was What I Like About You!

Our wedding song was EAT THAT RAT by The Ramones. I could have danced all night.

Truthful news about anything
Moves at a chelonian walk
But a few good laughs can be had
When the ‘rats continue to talk

Reid says a smile from TSA goons
As they proceed to grope your “junk”
Would have us all okay with being
Felt up by some airport punk

And Houston’s Silly Jackson Lee
Insists everyone will gain-
She’s channeling Japanese “officials”-
Who say build a bullet train

When I heard about Lee and her proposed train to nowhere, for some reason a half-remembered Kingston Trio song called The MTA song or something like that from my childhood came to mind-

“Let me tell you the story
Of a man named Charlie
On a tragic and fateful day
He put ten cents in his pocket,
Kissed his wife and family
Went to ride on the MTA

Did he ever return,
No he never returned
And his fate is still unlearned
He may ride forever
Beneath the streets of Boston
He’s the man who never returned.”

We were married at an 11:AM Mass with a luncheon reception, so no dancing. But "Our Song" was "Volare". I still like it.

Volare

Music at weddings-cool. My first husband and I had a trio that sang “The Wedding Song” and “Greensleves”(he wanted that, I don’t know why...) before the ceremony, and the first dance at the reception was “Magic Carpet Ride” by Steppenwolf. The band played mostly rock. but some country. And my new in-laws got into the mother of all battles on the way from the reception to their truck because he was really drunk...

MrT5 and I did not go with all that at our wedding-just the music that was played by the DJ at the reception-all rock and country stuff.

The first dance at my daughter’s reception was “Loveshack”.
