GOLD - Brian Wilson/The First Time. The first time I heard this, I thought it was a studio recording.

SILVER - Natalie Cole/Pink Cadillac. Didn't recall it by the title, but I've heard Bruce's version.

BRONZE - Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young/Our House. At my house, less than the sum of their parts.

TIN - Coldplay/Fix You. Somebody fix this.

Chuck Berry - Maybelline

Deb,

Tough one and could be a flipper week (back and forth) but I'll lock my vote in today:

Gold CSN & Y - it's just soooo sing-song that you can't pass on it.
Silver -Brian.   I LOVED Live At The Roxy and first heard it there and STILL like it
(I went back and forth between the two but I would go 6 to 4 in favor of my gold)


Bronze - Cold Play - never heard it before but it's haunting enough to hold me.
Tin - Ahhh the dreaded 80's - the time that spawned what we live with now, garbage.   Natalie funked out somewhat here but...too phony and goofy and 80's.   

Happy Birthday to Melinda and all who celebrate! 

The top two are wonderful, Deb.

Happy Birthday, Melinda.

Carol King "Birthday Song".  



And something a little more upbeat; Freddie Mercury "Happy Birthday, It's a Beautiful Day".

Me too. Nothing like the real thing in hand, especially for your favorites.

Happy Birthday, Melinda! Thanks for being there for Brian!


GOLD -- CSNY, Our House -- As cozy as a house should feel. Anyone remember a "Cheers" episode where Frasier and Lilith (I think) were singing this with Diane cutting in? Couldn't find the snippet on YouTube. Oh well...

SILVER -- Natalie Cole, Pink Cadillac -- I don't mind her voice. Hey, at least her drug issues were less public generally than Whitney's...or other rock stars. I actually didn't have a clue until she was on Larry King maybe 10-12 years ago, where she at least owned up to the hep C being her own fault. 

BRONZE -- Brian Wilson, The First Time -- For me, this is one of those undecided tracks - I've never been enthralled but I don't reach for the "skip" button either. 

TIN -- Coldplay, Fix You -- Has Chris Martin been fixed (as in spay/neutered)?  [wink]  Is it just me or is this w-a-a-y cooler a cappella (now THIS version would be pure GOLD IMO - turn it up!):



thanks, Deb Numero Uno!

Thanks for the great post, bonnie, t, Cindy, Al, dkmh, and Lisa, as well as all the votes.
“Lets Live Together’” by the Road Apples is pretty cool.  I thought it was new…seems it’s been out since the ‘70s.
Bernadette Carroll’s “Party Girl” is one I never heard.   The style is very reminiscent of the Chiffons
Cindy , that’s a cute little vignette from Huey Lewis.
Al, it’s good to see some appreciation for CSN&Y.
dkmh, I like having physical copy too.  I keep worrying about erasing a digital copy.
Lisa, I have to admit that IS a beautiful version of Fix You.  I’m thinking I wish I had heard it first.  The end choral is very cool.
This song popped into my head as I was thinking about birthdays and getting old.  I usually think of Frank Sinatra singing it but here’s a version by Dylan:

My votes.

GOLD - Coldplay.  A song Chris Martin apparently wrote for his wife when her dad died.  Enough said.

SILVER - CYS&N.  A fabulous little ditty, which is the reason it's my Silver this week, but the lyrics always leave me with a sense of suffocating repression.  Who wants two cats in the f@%king yard anyway?  Time to throw back another wine and celebrate my complete and utter lack of domestication, methinks.

BRONZE - Brian.  I haven't explored enough of Brian's solo work, but have enjoyed his later stuff as it has come out. This is indeed as tender as the first time.  I'm speaking of that first kiss, first weeks pay, first Big Mac, first almost anything.

TIN - The Cadillac One.  Funkier than it deserves to be, and reminding me of that painful year in 1988, when I was even more gangly and stupid than I am now.  All I wanted was my braces off, and spending all my money on a Saturday night involved a trip to the shops for anything that cost less than five bucks.


Deb, That was the Road Apples only big hit.  I think they had potential.  And a great Bob Dylan link, two stellar clips from you this week.

Going back to 1941.  "Me and My Melinda",  The Kay Kysers.



"Wished for You",  Squirrel nut Zippers.  



And a very special one for Melinda.  Brian dedicated this song to her at his first PS concert in 2017.  Beautiful.

My Votes :

Gold:Coldplay - Fix You

Silver:Natalie Cole - Pink Cadillac (1988)
Bronze:Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young - Our House (Remastered Version)
Tin:Brian Wilson - The First Time (Remastered)

Its funny as when I played the Natalie Cole track I thought I had that by Aretha Franklin on a 12" .

Of course the 12" mix by Aretha is a different tune , actually called "Freeway of Love (Pink Cadillac mix)" and the cover features (errrmmm) a pink Caddy [smile]

(Great sax by Clarence Clemons and sad that I am , always loved the drum break after about 3mins 40sec.)

bonnie, I particularly like the video of One Kind Of Love,  there are some enjoyable L&M movie shots as well as some lovely wedding shots at the end.  Me and My Melinda takes reminds me of my dad.  There is such good music from the 40’s.  And who couldn’t like the name Squirrel Nut Zippers?


David, that’s a great version of Aretha’s. I had definitely heard a shorter version of "Freeway of Love”.  The drums at 3m40s are crazy.  I thought of Nelson Bragg.  Cadillacs have changed over time [eek]  :
[1399377932697] 

Thanks, D.A.N, I love the split vote! Integers are boring. Thanks, Graciegirl, David, bonnie, too.
My own votes:
    Gold – Brian Wilson – The First Time
    Silver – CSN&Y – Our House
    Bronze – Coldplay – Fix You
    Tin - Natalie Cole - Pink Cadillac
Sunday mornings start out quiet here.  Here’s some softer music that appreciates the kind of friends you need to get by, Melinda types.
Ben E. King - Stand By Me


Dionne Warwick, Elton John, Gladys Knight ,Stevie Wonder - That's What Friends Are For
