Happy Birthday PAUL WILLIAMS      Sept 19th 1940 Paul Williams wrote the soundtrack for a generation. His songs were everywhere in the 1970s -- you could hear them on the radio, television, movies, and The Muppets. The simple honesty of his lyrics still captures attention and spurs the imagination. This song, The Rainbow Connection seems to fit him so well. Happy Birthday Paul Williams, you've given us happy memories!

Charlie Chaplin sings The only time we ever heard the Little Tramp's voice was in Modern Times (1936) when he sang a nonsense song in a cabaret. If you don't understand the lyrics, it's okay. Nobody does. They are a mishmash of words from several languages with a bit of jibberish thrown in. (Some film historians claim that Chaplin was trying to make the point that actions speak louder than words.) Nevertheless it is rather odd to hear sounds come from the mouth of the silent cinema's greatest star.

Featured Member -Nbmike Hi everyone. My name is Michael “Nbmike” Cormier. I will be turning 44 yrs old this summer, so while I may not be as old as the trees, unicorns, and dinosaurs, I’m definitely older than Compact Discs, MP3 Players, and Plasma TV. I am a single dad to my beautiful daughter Rhiannon (She thinks she’s 14 going on 40, which makes me often feel like I’m 80 lol). Ever since I found this site in November, I have enjoyed the trivia and memories found here. The people here are top notch at providing info when your memory kind of escapes you. I want to thank you all for welcoming me so warmly the last few months, and a big thanks to Steve for creating such a great site. OK, a little about me. I was born here in Saint John, NB Canada in 1965. I grew up in a small community outside of Saint John called Grand Bay, and lived there until I moved to the big city,(lol ….big city for NB, population, 70000 or so) In 1984, I started working as a radio announcer in town doing weekend and swing shifts. The job lasted a couple of years, but started a lifelong love with musical trivia, or even trivia in general. It was there that I found out about such things as plagiarism (Brian Wilson can say it was unintentional, but SURFIN USA just sounds like Chuck Berry’s SWEET LITTLE SIXTEEN with new lyrics)! We also played vinyl records back in those days, so I kinda feel like a dinosaur sometimes. lol After leaving the radio announcing job, I became a jack of all trades, until nagging back problems left me unemployed in 1994, and now I concentrate on raising my child and trying to develop projects. I have always had an interest in writing comedy, and have written some musical parodies that have made a few people laugh on a few occasions. I’m not egotistical about my writing by any means, but I have a rule of thumb. If I’m not laughing when I write the lyrics, then I keep running scenarios through my mind until I find the funniest scenario to me. I figure if I don’t find my writing funny, then how is anybody else supposed to? My hometown has some Hollywood connections. Louis B Mayer’s family moved here from overseas when he was a small child, and he grew up here until he left for Massachusetts when in his late teens, Actor Walter Pidgeon was born and raised here, as well as Lyman Ward, who played Ferris Beuller’s father, and Donald Sutherland was born here, but moved to Nova Scotia with his family when he was a teen. One Hollywood story I have heard is when Walter Pidgeon screen tested for MGM, Louis B Mayer thought he was sucking up to him, and summoned him to his office, and told him in no uncertain terms, that if Walter thought of putting Saint John NB as his hometown was going to gain him favor in Mayer’s eyes, it wasn’t going to work. When he told Mr.Mayer that Saint John WAS his hometown, then they had a laugh together. I am desperately shy in real life, but online I come out of my shell usually. I love participating here, just wish I had more time to contribute. Raising a teenager is like studying for a long and hard exam. You hope you have all the right answers, and you spend every waking hour trying to prepare for what’s coming up, but deep in your heart, you know you’re just flying without a net and hoping for the best, but I wouldn’t trade her for the world. The funny thing is that twenty years ago, I never though I had what it takes to be a Dad. I look forward to meeting new members and continuing to engage in trivia challenges and sharing memories with all. Thanks again for such a warm welcome here.

IT MIGHT BE YOU  Written by the team of Marilyn and Alan Bergman, this song, performed by Stephen Bishop (whose birthday is 11/14), was the theme for the 1982 hit Tootsie. I absolutely love it! A truly romantic classic, from an era when lyrics meant something. Doesn't it make you want to fall in love all over again?

The Platters Great Pretender In 1955, The Great Pretender, with lyrics written in the washroom of the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas, exceeded the success of the Platter's debut in 1953. It became their first national #1 hit. The Great Pretender was also the act's biggest R&B hit, with an eleven-week run atop the charts.

Every Mothers Son Come On Down To My Boat My best friend changed the lyrics to a four letter word that wasn't boat and so forth it was genius to a prepubescent boy.

THE EAGLES Get Over It This is one of the highlights of their 1994 album, 'Hell Freezes Over'. Great lyrics, great rhythm, great vocals from Don Henley, and great guitar work from Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh and Don Felder

Roy Orbison In Dreams 1963 "In Dreams" is a song composed and sung by American rock and roll performer, Roy Orbison. An operatic ballad of lost love, it was released as a 45rpm single on Monument Records in February 1963. The song's opening line refers to "A candy-colored clown they call the Sandman". The Sandman is a character in Hans Christian Andersen's children stories who brings sleep and dreams by sprinkling magic sand onto the sleeping. It became the title track on the album In Dreams, released July 1963, and also appears on his 1989 posthumous album A Black & White Night Live from the 1988 HBO television special. "In Dreams" was used famously in an infamous whorehouse scene in David Lynch's Blue Velvet (1986). An effeminate drug dealer, played by Dean Stockwell, lip synchs the song at the insistence of a sadistic criminal played by Dennis Hopper. Later, Hopper's character utters the lines "In dreams I talk to you... in dreams you're MINE - all the time!" as he threatens Kyle Maclachlan's character. The song also appeared in and provided the title for Neil Jordan's 1999 psychological thriller In Dreams. If the structure of a standard pop song is ABABCAB (verse-chorus, verse-chorus, bridge, verse-chorus), then the structure of "In Dreams" is ABCDE: the lyrics "A candy-colored clown," "I close my eyes," "In dreams I walk with you," "But just before the dawn," and "It's too bad that all these things" all introduce sections of new musical material that are not repeated. In 1988, songwriters Will Jennings and Richard Kerr wrote a response to "In Dreams", called "In The Real World", which Orbison recorded for his 1989 album Mystery Girl. In 2004, Rolling Stone Magazine named "In Dreams" as one of the "500 Greatest Songs of All Time."

Oh Happy Day A gospel tune that made it to the charts and you can see why when you hear it's lyrics and uplifting sound. Many versions of the song have been recorded but this is the man; Edwin Hawkins; who wrote it.
