Thursday Theme Song: you got me...

This song, written by a man named Melvin Endsley, was #1 on the pop charts for 10 weeks during my childhood, just about the time I was becoming a fan of popular music, and wanting to buy records (which then cost a dollar). Judging by the video, the singer wasn't long out of his youth, either, although he was actually almost as old as my parents. This YouTube clip is from a TV show everyone watched when I was young. Maybe Anni remembers it as well. The song was popular almost forever, so even you young 'uns might know it, too. As a sometime songwriter myself, although totally and completely unsuccessful, I hope Mr. Endsley got plenty of royalties for this long-time world favourite.

Well, I never felt more like singin' the blues
'Cause I never thought I'd ever lose
Your love, dear, why'd you do me this way?
And I never felt more like cryin' all night
'Cause everythin's wrong, nothin' ain't right
Without you. You got me singin' the blues.
Oh, the moon and stars no longer shine
The dream is gone I thought was mine
Nothin' left for me to do
But cry-y-y-y over you
Well, I never felt more like runnin' away
But why should I go? I couldn't stay
Without you, you got me singin' the blues.

Kay Ma'am,
I thought I'll post this comment here too!

"You can do what JJ did if the fruits are half-ripe. For those that you get at your Supermart these are already ripe. But for a ripe one you can just press lime over them. It'll give that special flavor. I hope lime is still ok with you".

A song I know well, though by a different artists. My Dad was a HUGE Fan of Country Music, so I grew up listening to Marty Robbins' version of this song.

The bird flying over what seems to be a boat of some sort and the moon shots are all Great. My favorite one would be the moon casting it's reflection on the water. Awesome Job! Happy Thursday!!

PS Correction...Mom needs a proof reader. I think she said she'd never heard the song....BECAUSE she has.She meant she had never heard Mr. Mitchell.

Ah, thanks to Lighthousegal! I know that song well...mostly because my husband likes Marty Robbins, but I didn't remember whose version I was hearing while I read the lyrics!

Beautiful moon shots Kay.
