That was really weird. Like they told them,
"no energy. I SAID NO ENERGY! Pretend you're having fun, but barely move. Oh, and if you MUST dance, do so only on the rocks."

What's this from? It sounds like there's another music video coming at the end of it.

By the way, thanks for sharing. That song always gets me hoppin'.

Speaking of Tony Orlando, this song is a nice one! Tie A Yellow Ribbon ( Round the Old Oak Tree)

Yes, it is pretty static. Even a stage performance would have had more movement, it seems.
I'm not sure where this comes from. Yes, Yellow Ribbon is a classic.

I don't think I've shared this song on here. A Hundred Sixty Acres by Bing Crosby The Andrews Sisters.

This has been in my head ever since I started my vacation. 😃

A Hundred Years From Today by Jack Teagarden. This song is actually pretty relaxing when I get anxious about things that really don't matter. ☺️

I keep bumping songs, but there are so many good ones in this thread.

I thought I'd posted this song somewhere here, but I can't find it! This song is so neato. Ain't We Crazy? by Harry McClintock.

This is still so true so many years later.
