How about some classic rock, the kind we heard in high school? Bob Segar, Skynyrd, etc...

Wait -- there's another one too, but I can't remember the name of it. Something about some lady who's sure all that glitters is gold, and if there's a bustle in your hedgerow don't be alarmed because it's just a Spring clean for the May Queen and some other stuff. Yeah, what was the name of that song? I'm not sure about this but I think the band that did it was called Iron Balloon or something like that. Anyway, that would be a good song too.

In my opinion, you can't go wrong with an assorted selection from the Casey Kasem's America's Top 100(Is he still with us, by the way?).

I'm certain these i(hs)tunes will both delight and repulse all at the same time.

A line-up featuring Leo Sayer, Shawn Cassidy, David Soul (which one was he? Starsky, Hutch or BO Duke?), and Climax Blues Band is guaranteed to put the "ick" back in "Classic Rock."

In no particular order:

Angel In Your Arms, Hot

I Like Dreamin', Kenny Nolan

Don't Leave Me This Way, Thelma Houston

Southern Nights, Glen Campbell

Rich Girl, Daryl Hall and John Oates

When I Need You, Leo Sayer

Hot Line, Sylvers

Car Wash, Rose Royce

You Don't Have To Be A Star, Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr.

Fly Like An Eagle, Steve Miller Band

Don't Give Up On Us, David Soul

On And On, Stephen Bishop

Barry Manilow? I'd rather hear Iron Ballon!

Iron BALLOON?!?!?! There's no band named Iron Balloon! You're thinking of Led Butterfly!

7/15/08 3:15 PM

There's another one that might be appropriate for these circumstances. It's the one where they sing, "We don't need no (sic) education...something...something...hey, teacher, leave those kids alone!" Again, I'm not all that good at remembering band names so I'd only be guessing, but I think it was by Pink Frampton maybe? From "The Fence" album?

As for my smoking toooooo muuuuuch pot, umm, what's pot? Is that anything like "Vitamin W?"

"Looks Like We Made It", Barry Manilow?

I prefer his other hit, "Let's Pretend We All Have Bright Futures."

Wait a minute... was that the theme of our prom?

Pass the bong.

Billy Joel - The Stranger

I think "Glory Days" by Springsteen would be an appropriate song for the reunion.

Bong? Now days it's pass the Blunt...

I think he meant Iron Butterfly.

Call it what ya will, but pass it.

Maybe we should ask Allison for a different activity for our renunion...How about purchasing a Keg and just partying in the woods???? Then we can pass what ever we feel like......

What an entertaining discussion! As far as tunes go, how about something from the band Chicago (in their "classic" days)?

7/16/08 8:45 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

OK, enough Good Ole Days, Lets get modern...say, Arch Enemy (Nemisis}, Cradle of Filth {Nemisis} and Bullet for My Valentine {These 4 Words and Scream Aim Fire}. Or if we must stay in the 70's Genre....and MUST do Led Zep...make it Dyer Maker.

Who is gonna build the Mosh Pit?

Personally, I think the definitive IHS Class o' 1978 song has already been mentioned above in the semi-comprehensive list cribbed from Casey Kasem's AT40/Top 100 listing. Incidentally, Casey IS still with us -- just turned 100 years old too which makes him about 18 months older than Dick Clark. You may remember Casey from these sort of exchanges:

Scooby -- "Rrr-rrr-rrrrrr-rr-RRRR-rrr-rrrrrr..."

Shaggy -- "You SAID IT, SCOOOOOOOB!"

(Scooby? Said? Hunh?)

So, uh, yeah, moving right along, here's the song -- the marching band version of Stevie Wonder's "Sir Duke." Ya with me on this? Now, to extend the special moment of recollection, play it over, and over, and over, and oooooooooover...aaaaaaaaand overrrrrrrr...

And over...

Maybe ya had to be there, but anyone who was in the marching band, the color guard, the cheer squad, or any fall sport should know exaaaaaactly what I'm talking about. Whataya think? Marching band version of "Sir Duke" for about three hours straight? Wouldn't that be just about the perfectest way to slice back through 30 years?

("Hey, thawuz great! One. More. Time!")

Hey, I think I still have my IHS marching band records...somewhere... which closet?....which box?... If I ever find them, shall I bring 'em? Yup, marching band was great - definately lots of memories!

Say, has anyone contacted former teachers about our reunion? There were a few that it'd be nice to see again. I think I heard via the grapewine that Mr. Lloyd is retiring or has just retired.

I particularly enjoy those Rolling Stones fellas.

"Start Me Up."

Seriously, ... start me up. It's not part of the song. I can't my Hugh Jazz out of the chair!

Now then... where was I?

As long as the bassist doesn't look like too much like Matlock, I don't care.

My medic alert beeper will probably drown out the music anyway...

"Ammf soorree, mah teef just fell intoo mah lap..."

I can't get no met-a-mucil.
