This week’s mewsic theme is “Songs Starting With the 1st Letter of Your Name”. 

Calling Out Your Name (Down In A Hole album) Kiefer Sutherland.

 

Actor-turned-singer Kiefer Sutherland says this track from his début album is about a highly publicized failed romance from his youth. He tells Rolling Stone: “There’s a moment in everyone’s life when they go from a girl to a woman or a boy to a man, and that transition, at least from my experience, is illustrated through heartbreak.”

He doesn’t name the girl, but Sutherland did have a high-profile engagement to Julia Roberts after the pair met on the set of Flatliners in 1990.

 

Cathy (Down on a Deptford Broadway album) Skinny Lister

 

The second single from Down on Deptford Broadway is a slice of sing-a-long punk ‘n’ roll. Singer and guitarist Dan Heptinstall explained: “‘Cathy’ is an ode to addiction and recklessness. A declaration of desire for someone or something that you know is bad for you, and you’d be wise to steer well clear of. The classic wrestle between head and heart.”

Can We Dance (Meet the Vamps album) The Vamps

 

This pop British band debuted their song in September 2013 and the following month’s sells with 13K more than their competitor looked like The Vamps would peak number 1 on the UK Singles Chart but in the end One Republic (Counting Stars – another “C” song) nudged them out of the spot and recorded as the closest chart battle in 2013 with only 1,150 sells separating the two songs.

Quick, what “C” song titles come to mind?

I invite you to hit the dance floor with XmasDolly, Stacy, Colette , and little ole me. 😉



 

This is Curious as a Cathy signing off with more “C” Song Titles.

Cathy – Day 23 G2KM Blog Challenge

Not Catherine. Not Cathleen. Not Cathey. Not Cathi.  Just plain ole Cathy.  That’s my name, Cathy!  Growing up I disliked my name TERRIBLY.  Maybe, it was because there were too many Cathys.  There was at least one or two other Cathys in my classroom every year.  Talk about confusing, huh?

According to Think Baby Names, Cathy was most popular in 1960-1969 ranking in the top 100 baby girl names.  Cathy is of Creek origin and it is a form of Katherine.  In  essence, Cathy is a nickname of Catherine.  I do like the meaning of my name, though, which means ‘pure’.

Interesting despite Cathy being my name and being born in 1961, I never owned a Chatty Cathy doll.

Mattel manufactured the Chatty Cathy doll from 1959 through 1965.  It was the 2nd most popular doll sold to time treasured, collectible Barbie Doll of the 60s. Chatty Cathy retailed for a little under $20.

Funny, Chatty Cathy refers to someone who is especially talkative.  This absolutely fits me to a T. As a Cathy, I do love to talk!  I can talk to just about anyone without reservation.  In grade school, I always got a “C” in conduct because I wouldn’t stop talking during class. I loved talking!

While I was not a huge fan, I do draw a certain parallel relationship with the cartoon character, ‘Cathy’ debuting in the mid-1970s.  Cathy Guisewite’s classic comic strip focused on making fun of or playing into the negativity associated with women.  Each comic strip featured Cathy’s quilt over food, love, mom, or work.  Four life experiences the typical modern woman faced in that era and often still today.

What’s kind of cool is there are songs about Cathy.  Take a stroll down memory lane with these tunes!

 

 

 

 

Cathy has dropped off the popularity chart of the 60s, but it continues to grow popular with me as I no longer dislike my name.  In fact, I cannot imagine myself being anything other than…
