Monday Music Mambo: American Made

1. What is your favorite American band?
I was going to say Billy Joel, but he’s not a band, just a person.
I’m listening to a lot of Plain White T’s these days.

2. What is your favorite song about America or with America or American in the title?
“American Woman” by the Guess Who. I know people have said it’s chauvinistic, and the band says it’s not, but really, it’s a kicky tune, and parts of it are kind of sexy. Don McLean’s “American Pie” comes in a close second.

3. Do you have any L.P. records? If so, how many and what is your most treasured?
I used to, but we finally got rid of them. I had an original copy of the children’s album “Free to Be You and Me” and I loved it. Recently, I bought the CD, just to have.

4. Name another use for an L.P. record other than playing it.
45’s make excellent coasters, and 33’s make great frisbees. 78’s are too brittle to play with, but look cool with a planter on top of them. Also, several 45’s strung on fishing line hanging from dowels = a kickass mobile.

You, too can mambo, here.

  1. I love “American Woman”!!! I was disappointed as I got a Guess Who CD and the version was a new one and not the very true old one. But still like listening to it!!
    Congrats on being Michele’s site of the day and the winner of the writing contest as well!!

  2. I have a tough time throwing out anything, and as a result, still have most of my LPs AND 45s, and even my folks’ 78s!

    Hi, Michele sent me!

  3. I also love Billy Joel. I don’t know much about the PWTs, but I like that Delilah song they show on TV a lot, and the name makes me think of Fonzie.
    OMG LOVE FTBYAM. William’s Doll. . . I sing that one a lot. I have a very ancient cassette of it.
    Michele sent me. . . congrats on your win.

  4. My husband has a bunch of LPs from the 60s and 70s. However, he does not have any of the ones worth piles of money. I have ditched all of mine at some point or another.
