Last week, I was out of state at a Young Living convention in Salt Lake City, Utah, so it turns out I haven't posted on this blog in 10 days. Oops! Must catch up... Join up here if you're like to play along with this fun meme!
Saturday 9: Listen to the Music (1972)
Because Zippi requested it.
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
1) The lyrics say, "What the people need is a way to make them smile." What song lifts your spirits and makes you smile every time you hear it?
"Kiss" by Prince has to be cranked up every single time I hear it. In more recent music, I'm liking Sam Hunt's "Body Like a Back Road," Train's "Play That Song," and also Julia Michaels' "Issues." All need to be blasted in the car and sung at the top of ones' lungs! (Can we do one+ of these? Pretty please?)
2) Lead vocalist/composer Tom Johnston reports that he's made a lot in royalties because so many radio stations use this as a jingle. Tell us a jingle that sticks in your head.
For decades, literally, I have been singing the Flinstone Kids' Vitamin jingle while I take my showers. Almost every time! Baby voice and all, LOL..!
3) The Doobie Brothers got their start in San Jose, California. San Jose is the largest city in Northern California, thanks to all the tech companies that have headquarters there. Let's talk about the device you're on right now: are all your applications up to date?
5) This week's song is from Toulouse Street, which is considered their "breakthrough" album. Tell us about a moment in your own life that you consider a "breakthrough."
6) In 1987, the Doobie Brothers did a benefit performance for Vietnam Veterans at the Hollywood Bowl. Next to the Beatles, it was the fastest-selling ticket in Hollywood Bowl history. Which group do you listen to more often -- the Doobies or the Beatles?
9) Random question: Which of these "top ten" lists would you prefer to be on -- the sexiest, the smartest or the richest?
