FNM; Category is ... Astrology!

Lars(Z11a, Sunset 24)

Maddiemo told me about this tradition, and so I thought I would try to help it along.

For this category, you can reference any astrological sign, astrological element (i.e., Fire, Earth, Air, Water) and any planet, including Sun, Moon, and Pluto, but not Earth, but that of course is an element.

I will start with my own astrological sign

Moxie(Z4 St. Paul, MN)

Age of Aquarius by the 5th Dimension

The song is from the musical "Hair." The version from the musical got very little air play compared to the one by the 5th Dimension.

Venus des Abribus by Patricia Kaas

A very young Patrica Kaas. An abribus is a bus shelter. Unlike many of her songs the lyrics are pretty easy to understand.

My mom was into astrology. I have a complete chart that was done by hand when I was born. Mom was also kind of a well known handwriting analyst. Memphis PD detectives would bring things by for her to analyze sometimes.


Aries here! Fire sign, known for courage and frankness.

Totally off theme but got to share it...

Weird Al Yankovitch

"Germs"

Kind of apropos for the times

I will try to figure out song he parodied.

... it's a mashup of Nine Inch Nails songs.

Don't love that group but love Weird Al.

Dancing in the Moonlight

I remember this song playing a lot on the radio in the 70's. Don't remember the group so much.... I'll have to check them out.


----Hey Roxall, I've been trying to post Werewolves of London on a theme for a while, have it in my saved file... you beat me to it!!!!! I love howling along with that song.

Jesus was a Capricorn
He ate organic food
He believed in love and peace
And never wore no shoes

Long hair, beard and sandals
And a funky bunch of friends
Reckon we'd just nail him up
If he came down again

'Cause everybody's gotta have somebody to look down on
Who they can feel better than at any time they please
Someone doin' somethin' dirty decent folks can frown on
If you can't find nobody else, then help yourself to me

Eggheads cussing rednecks cussing
Hippies for their hair
Others laugh at straights who laugh at
Freaks who laugh at squares

Some folks hate the Whites
Who hate the Blacks who hate the Klan
Most of us hate anything that
We don't understand

'Cause everybody's gotta have somebody to look down on
Who they can feel better than at any time they please
Someone doin' somethin' dirty decent folks can frown on
If you can't find nobody else, then help yourself to me

Age of Aquarius by the 5th Dimension

I was curious about this group and looked them up. Found another song I like




Aquarian here. Forward thinking, futuristic and optimistic.

Maddiemo, you sound very chipper for just having woke up. That’s good.

I’ve been listening to many of the posted songs before I go to bed. Great stuff. I’ll be dreaming about the stars tonight. My husband is a bit of a skywatcher and he has been telling me about a comet that will be visible in Orion’s Belt sometime this month. It is supposed to be brighter than Venus.

I hope you have an enjoyable day:)

eta Oops, I’ve just been corrected! Comet Atlas is visible in the Big Dipper.

Have a good sleep and happy dreams. I’m fascinated by astronomy and love watching docs on it (we have a very nice chap called Brian Cox who’s very knowledgeable in that dept) I forget most of it almost instantly, but never tire of listening to him.

Good morning Maddiemo and Hamilton G ! I am just revving up myself for the late late show here !

Here are a few olds one that might resonate with our current and more terrestrial concerns, maybe ease the anxiety that a lot of us are feeling , and open up feelings of togetherness and hope:

Hi heri! Astronomy for my earth bound curiosity about what’s out there, but I must admit I used to delve into astrology quite a bit when I was younger to try to get to grips with the wonders of people differences.

I don't want to de rail this thread but have you seen the amount of parody songs on Corona on YouTube. I guess people have a lot of time on their hands to do that now.

I’ve seen a few of them Izzy Mn. I‘m all in favour of people looking for humour and ridicule in the face of what’s happening. It brightens my day and I think we all need that, especially right now.

Some of them are really funny and made me laugh... even the one worrying about running out of toilet paper, which is a common theme.

The loss of his Mother was the inspiration behind this song. “The most important person in my life was heavy on my mind, and the thought of 'what if no one ever really leaves? What if she's here but different. The idea was, she's back here in the atmosphere."

ah, well heri, Reach out in the Darkness ....the guy is a very, very young Jim Post. Saw him countless times ( a few years after the above song came out) in concert along with the other Chicago folk scene, a marvelous writer and performer. Go Jimmie David, sing it little white boy!

I always think this is about the half way world you inhabit when you’re a teenager. Destiny will tempt you or hook you in whether you like it or not. Welcome to adulthood.
