A not-so Spooky Halloween

 

 

Good morning, Ghouls and Boos! What a spooktacular way to begin the week to find your haunting around my blog! Are you ready to rattle your bones?  Our theme this week is “Halloween” but we’re not finicky if you have tunes to share then we’re ready to boogie with you and we invite you step on the dance floor with  XmasDolly, Colette, and little ole me!

Alice Cooper does creepy VERY well. He’s an entertainer and his fans want a show. Let me say I am not an authority on heavy rock bands. Today’s inspiration is a spin-off of a broader idea but for now I’m going to share some ballads, a few I know but most are new-to-me in this A Not-So-Spooky Alice playlist. Enjoy the mewsic!

 

  1. Only Women Bleed” from Welcome To My Nightmare album comes one of Cooper’s biggest hits, ranking #1 (Canadian charts) and #12 in the US in 1975. Like many, I thought the song was about a woman’s menstral cycle but it’s actually is about a woman in an abusive marriage. I’m not sure what spurred Cooper and Wagner to write the ballad. I can only hope it was bring more awarness to domestic violence. Regardless the reasons or what the song is about, I think the melody is gentle.
  2. You and Me” Cooper’s lead single from his 1977 album, Lace and Whiskey reaching #9 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and #8 on Cash Box Top 100 that summer. Cooper’s song did better in Canada (#3) and Australia (#2 ) making his song this the 13th biggest hit of ’77.
  3. It’s Me” from Cooper’s 1994 The Last Temptation album; reaching #34 in the UK.
  4. Only My Heart Talkin’” this power ballad is from Cooper’s 1989 album Trash. The song charted #89 in the US but peaked on the Australia’s chart at #47
  5. Burning Our Bed” is from Hey Stoopid 1991 album. The lyrics tell of guy who’s heart belongs to a lying woman but severes ties, burning bridges, calling it quits with their relationship
  6. How You Gonna See Me Now” Cooper co-wrote with Bernie Taupin (yeah, Elton’s co-lyrists) and Dick Wagner released from his 1979 album, From the Inside, charting #12 on the US Billboard Hot 100. This song tells the story of man anxious to get back with a lost loved now changed but worried how will she see him?
  7. Be With You Awhile” from 2003 album, The Eyes of Alice Cooper speaks of a man who wants to be with his gal doing the smallest or silliest things just so he can be with her.

#SundaySillies Dental #humor

Good-morning, kittens & dawgs, I rounded off A2Z week number three with flying colors. If you’ve been with me throughout the challenge, then you know it’s all about the music.

 

This week, DH had implant surgery. Of course, that’s no laughing matter, but I found inspiration in his pain (poor guy!).

fun-at-the-dentistsKeeping with my theme, let’s get our laughs on Sunday Sillies with these dentist funnies!

No one likes visiting the dentist. I think it’s so funny what my mother use to do when she took me to the dentist. Afterwards, she always treated me to lunch at the DQ. I ordered a burger and milk shake every time. This is where it gets interesting…it frustrated me to no end that I could barely suck my milk shake through the straw and forget eating my yummy smelling hamburger! There is little one can do with a half numbed mouth, but I gave it my best shot. What was my mom thinking?

What things make you laugh or smile about now when thinking on past dental experiences?

That’s all for now, folks. If you have giggles to share, then we’d love to see ‘em! Until next time, keep smiling and have a laughtastic week! Do you like music? If so, hop back each day this month for a song of the day entwined with a snippet from my life in Blogging from A to Z!

Let’s get our giggles on with Sunday Sillies #Selfies edition!
