#Music Breaking Up Is Hard To Do Series Part IV @XmasDolly #GunsNRoses

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

 

Good-morning, kittens & dawgs! February is the month of love, and we typically think romance with Cupid sporting hearts to pierce with his arrow. But, heart breaks are also found in February and we all know nothing hurts like a romantic break up, but a band breakup?! Well…that’s a double heart breaker ~ for the group and their fans. This morning, I’m continuing to share hits of a one the most devastating band breakups of all times in my addition of Breaking Up Is Hard To Do Series with…

Guns N’ Roses

This iconic hard rock band formed in Los Angeles during the dance and pop metal era of the 80s. Accredited for the revival in pop mainstream rock music during the late 80s and early 90s earned them the nickname The World’s Most Dangerous Band with their “hedonistic rebelliousness” resemblances to the Rolling Stones’ early years.

It amazing GNR music spanned three decades where drugs and huge egos were bound to collide. Despite these ginormous flaws, the band threw out tremendous hits that we all love but in the end, substance abuse and delusions of power between certain band members became their undoing.

Although, I don’t consider myself a heavy metal fan I do like a few of their hits ~ Welcome to the Jungle, Sweet Child O’ Mine, Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door, and November Rain.  What’s your favorite Guns N’ Roses song?

The results for the last round of #BOTB featuring I Honestly Love You was a total run away. I didn’t even cast my vote. Had I did, it would have gone for the winner….Jerry Butler! He took all counts 9 of 9 votes!!!

Thanks for sharing this dance. Let’s keep the party going, link up and join the fun at XmasDolly. I hope to see you tomorrow for CathyChat. Have a tunetastic week!

#Music Breaking Up Is Hard To Do Series Part III @XmasDolly

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

 

Good morning, kittens & dawgs! February is the month of love, and we typically think romance with Cupid sporting hearts to pierce with his arrow. But, heartbreaks are also found in February and we all know nothing hurts like a romantic break-up, but a band breakup?! Well…that’s a double heartbreaker ~ for the group and their fans. This morning, I’m sharing another band breakup greatest hits in my newest addition to Breaking up is hard to do series with…

The Mamas and The Papas

Front center: Michelle Phillips; Left to right: Denny Doherty, Cass Elliot, and John Phillips

The Mamas and The Papas sold 40 million records worldwide ~ 5 albums and 17 singles, 6 making the top 10 list. This American folk rock band, blended harmony with the sound of the 60s beat from 1965-68 before officially breaking up in 1971. What caused the group to split?

In 1968 while the band was in London John Phillips embarrassed Cass Elliot in front of her icon Mike Jagger; cutting into the middle of their conversation disputing facts about the story Elliot was sharing of her own arrest with Jagger.  Humiliated, she screamed at Phillips and stormed out of the room ready to dissolve the band that very night. Unofficially, the group did part ways, but legal ties kept the band together till they fulfilled their record contract obligations.

This morning, visit or revisit the greatest hits of The Mamas and The Papas!

Tracklist includes:

00:00 California Dreamin’
02:42 Dedicated To The One I Love
05:43 I Call Your Name
08:21 Twelve Thirty (Young Girls Are Coming To The Canyon)
11:49 Creeque Alley
15:42 Dancing In The Street
19:32 For The Love Of Ivy
23:16 Go Where You Wanna Go
25:46 My Girl
29:22 Look Through My Window
31:32 Words of Love
34:50 Twist and Shout
37:45 I Saw Her Again
41:00 Dream A Little Dream Of Me
44:16 Trip, Stumble and Fall
46:56 Monday, Monday

Every time, I hear the song ~ San Francisco, I always think of the movie, The Rock. Do you associate any of The Mamas and The Papas tunes with anything in particular? Which song is your favorite?

Thanks for the dance. Let’s keep the party going, link up and join the fun at XmasDolly. I hope to see you tomorrow on Cathy Chat. Have a tunetastic week!

#SaturdaySongsuasion featuring a “rock and roll band with horns” @chicagotheband

Good-morning kittens & dawgs! Yesterday’s Flashback Friday memories of my school days reminded me of the music I enjoyed. One of my favorite bands was the one DH introduced to me.

In the late 60s, this self-described “rock and roll band with horns” launched their politically charged, sometimes experimental sound before finding their niche in soft rock.

In the bands’ early days, Jimi Hendrix once told Parazaider, “Jeez, your horn players are like one set of lungs and your guitar player is better than me.” That’s quite the compliment considering Hendrix’s reputation on the guitar, eh?

Throughout the 70s and 80s, this group produced a continuous flow of Billboard singles and albums sensations, second to none other than the Beach Boys in success among American rock bands known as Chicago.

Saturday Song-suasion 59: The Four Tops

In case you haven’t read, I’m taking a break this month. Although, I unplugged myself from the world beyond my computer, I did think before hand about my lovelies and threw together a whole month of music for your enjoyment.

It seems inspiration in music takes me back again to my childhood.  Today’s featured group always impressed me with how they danced in sync. Looking back I don’t why it mesmerized me, but it did.

The Four Tops was one group among many to form the sound of Motown.  In my opinion this era cranked out some of the best music ever. Now turn up your speakers for some oldies!

 

 

Thank you for making me apart of your weekend. I hope you enjoyed your visit. In fact, I hope you enjoyed it so much that you cannot wait to tell your friends. Go ahead, hit the share (Facebook, Twitter, Google+) button! You know you wanna. 😉
