A couple of years ago I got one of those CD cards that contain songs from the year you were born.

After listening to it I can see why my parents resorted to copulation in 1967. There really wasn't much of an entertainment alternative.

Oh come on now Argy what about
Soul Man - Sam & Dave
Respect - Aretha Franklin
Groovin' - The Young Rascals
Gimme Some Lovin' - The Spencer Davis Group

That was some good stuff. Now 1971 had a few good ones, but overall was kinda lame.
Maggie May - Rod Stewart
Gypsys, Tramps And Thieves - Cher (a personal fav)
Black Magic Woman - Santana

I feel your pain.

1968 can lay claim to the following gems (interpret that however you'd like):

Harper Valley P.T.A.
Yummy Yummy Yummy
Mony Mony
(what's with all the repetition repetition??)

Also, the uplifting hits Abraham Martin & John and Then You Can Tell me Goodbye Roll Eyes

Luckily we also got Sittin on the Dock of the Bay
Chain of Fools and People Gotta Be Free
(see, it all comes back to Xena!Wink )

maybe my folks were listening to Bobby Darren sing "Mack the Knife" back when i was just a gleam in Walter's eye...

1959 was pretty cool...
Battle of New Orleans/jimmy driftwood
Midnight Flyer/ nat king cole
El Paso/ marty robbins
What a Differnce a Day Makes/ dinah washington
Tequila/ the champs
Heartaches by the Number/guy mitchell (though it's a Ray Price song...)


of course there's also:
Great Balls of Fire/jerry lee lewis
Charlie Brown/the coasters
Teenager in Love/the belmonts
and any number of Kingston Trio recordings...

The only good one I could find from 1959 was Bobby Darin's rendition of Mack The Knife.

'twas a better year for movies, tho. Quite a few classics born.

'Anatomy Of A Murder'
'Some Like It Hot'
'North By Northwest'
Bergman's 'Wild Strawberries'
'Room At The Top'
'Diary Of Anne Frank'

... quite a selection for that year's Oscars to chose from, right? Wrong. Ben Hur got all the majors. Even... wait for it... Chuck Heston for best actor! Roll Eyes
What on EARTH were they smoking?!?!

Man, that was a corny movie hehe. smash

Hmm. My parents were older so they weren't into what was going at the time but in 1965 things were changing. I was born when Rubber Soul was completed and released. Hmm. I think while I was gestating the Fabs were working on Rubber Soul! Big Grin

As I remember it, he'd had an experience and was afraid everyone would think he was gay. I think. Now someone has to watch it and tell me if that's right.

I just listened to the song again, and here's the scoop.

Billy Joe and the female narrator were seen talking heatedly after church one night. *gasp*

THEN they were seen throwing "something" off the Talahachee Bridge.

Now, I don't know why, but I always imagined that Billy Joe got his girlfriend pregnant and they threw the baby off the bridge so no-one would find out, and then he couldn't live with murdering his child.

However, that doesn't really make sense because surely her Mom and Dad would have figured that one out?? Anyone got any other ideas? Confused

Anyway, I like the way in the song how they keep interupting the story of what happened to poor Billy Joe by asking people to pass dinner items.

It was the third of June, another sleepy, dusty Delta day
I was out choppin' cotton and my brother was baling hay
At dinner time we stopped and walked back to the house to eat

And Mama hollered out the back door "y'all remember to wipe your feet"
Then she said "I got some news this morning from Chocktow Ridge
Today Billy Joe MacAllister jumped off the Tallahachee Bridge"

Papa said to Mama as he passed around the black eyed peas
"Well Billy Joe never had a lick of sense, pass the biscuits, please
There's five more acres in the lower forty I got to plow"
And Mama said it was shame about Billy Joe, anyhow
Seems like nothing ever comes to no good on Chocktow Ridge
And now Billy Joe MacAllister's jumped off the Tallahachee Bridge


Brother said he recollected when he and Tom and Billy Joe,
Put a frog down my back at the Carrol County picture show,
And wasn't I talkin' to him after church last Sunday night,
I'll have another piece of apple pie, you know, it don't seem right'
I saw him at the sawmill yesterday on Choctow Ridge
And now you tell me Billy Joe jumped off the Tallahatchee Bridge

Mama said to me "Child, what's happened to your appetite?
I've been cooking all morning and you haven't touched a single bite
That nice young preacher, Brother Taylor, dropped by today
Said he'd be pleased to have dinner on Sunday, oh, by the way,
He said he saw a girl that looked a lot like you on Chocktow Ridge
And she and Billy Joe was throwing something off the Tallahachee Bridge"

A year has come and gone since we heard the news about Billy Joe
Brother married Becky Thompson, they bought a store in Tupelo
There was a virus going 'round, Papa caught it and he died last Spring
And now Mama doesn't seem to wanna do much of anything
And me, I spend a lot of time picking flowers up on Chocktow Ridge
And drop them into the muddy water off the Tallahachee Bridge

Billy Joe was "family".

From what I understand, the film didn't follow the spirit of the song very well. Billy Joe and the bridge and the jumping and that's about all that's the same. Possibly the biscuits.
