Tagged: 5 Embarrassing Songs I Enjoy

Pat of Mille Fiori Favoriti and Barb of The French Element have tagged me to write 5 embarrassing songs I enjoy!
Okay, here they are:

1. The Name Game
You know by Shirley Ellis: Like this..... Connor Connor bo Bonner banana Fanana fo remember this one??? Connor and I love to sing it! Here's a link for the words and a ring tone.2. Shortening Bread:
Remember this one: Get out the skillet, Get out the lid, mammy's gonna make a little shortening bread. That ain't all she's gonna go, mammy's gonna make a little coffee too. Connor used to cry when I sang this to him. Cooper just looks at me like I'm crazy!

3. You Ain't Nothing But a Hound Dog: I love anything by Elvis. Enough said!4. I Was Country When Country Wasn't Cool: I never have been a big country music fan, but I really like the version by Barbara Mandrell. Click here for the lyrics and ringtone.
5. Mustang Sally: This one makes me want to dance. It also reminds me of places I've heard this song such as in New Orleans in the French Quarter. We were entertained when a band at an outdoor restaurant played this, and people got up and started dancing! Also, at Ground Zero, Morgan Freeman's juke joint in Clarksdale, Ms, a group of teachers I was with cut loose on this song after a long workshop! When my aerobics teacher uses this song, I just get more into it! LOL

There you have it...I would like to pass this challenge on to:


Thanks Pat and Barb for thinking of me! It wasn't as hard as I thought! LOL

lol, that shortening bread song was on one of my oldest son's kid videos. He loved that video, so I heard it ALOT. He is 13 now but I bet I still know the words to that song, lol ;)

Have a great day!

Oh, this is a tag right up my alley. I love songs...I love singing!!!

I sing the name game in my class all the time. I love that song. I learned Shortening Bread from the I Love Lucy show!! I also have a song I sing to the kids to that tune too!

Thanks for making me smile this morning.

take care,

Dawn said...

Just popping in to say I'm watching I Love Lucy right now and Ethel is singing Shortening Bread LOL!

Hi Diane,

I haven't heard some of those songs for years. I used to drive my family crazy singing The Name Game.

Thank you for playing along.

Have a lovely Sunday.

Hi Diane! Hope you are having a good Sunday! I don't know, that seemed to me like it would have been the hardest tag to answer! I'm not a big country music fan either but I do remember that song. Hound dog I sing more than I care to when it gets stuck in my head for some reason and now it is again!Thanks alot!lol Have a great Monday - Jeannette

It's so interesting to find out things about those we read online, isn't it? I think my favorite music is the sound of infinite silence (which means no hubby tv blaring), and birds singing. Anything they want to sing!


That was a Great selections of songs. I love that aging us??Thanks for stopping by. I am so enjoying blogging and meeting new friends. Stop by again.

Now I can't get those songs out of my mnd :) :)

The night our grandson Drew was born, we sang Elvis songs, in the waiting room. We were the only family waiting. You Ain't Nothin' But a Houndog was one of them. Drewbee was born on Elvis' birthday.

Cute post, Diane.

Alex said...

Good evening! :) I loved your tag. I will try to post mine within the next day or so. Someone else tagged me on this, too!

Hope you had a good Sunday.


Jeanne said...

Diane, your song choices bring back memories. Fun music for fun times. I think I would really have to think hard to pick songs. Good job. Smile

Blessings the Sunday, Jeanne

Hey Diane,

What a cook tag! I love The Name Game. We used to sing it in the car all the time when the kids were little.

I'm working on it - when I get home from vacation I'll conscentrate on getting my songs up there. I have lots of songs that bring back memories - not necessairily embarrassing ones though. Thanks for thinking of me. PAM

Pat said...
