    Procol Harum - A Whiter Shade Of Pale (1967) HQ
    MUNROWS RETRO



    Published on Sep 9, 2016
    Back in the summer of 1967 most rock music was something you'd hear on the radio, a juke box, or from your own playing devices (phonograph or reel-to-reel tape). Some parts of the United States, Canada, and elsewhere were already broadcasting rock music on FM radio, in stereo whenever possible since many recordings were still in monaural. But for the most part, the world was still tuned to the AM band. Unless you heard a song on relatively sophisticated equipment from a reasonably close distance, you usually did not hear it under the best of conditions. It was not unusual at that time to have to guess at what some (or in some cases, all) of the lyrics were actually saying. If you could afford the LP the song was on, you might get an album cover that had the lyrics printed on the back or on an insert, but most of the time the lyrics were not available. Such was the case when I first heard "A Whiter Shade Of Pale" in the summer of '67 at the beach, courtesy of a well-stocked juke box. As I lay there at the clueless age of 13 on a large beach towel taking in the sun, I was entranced by its loveliness and, never having heard of Procol Harum, came to believe that Gary Brooker's powerful, soulful vocal was indeed that of a singer like Percy Sledge (also big at that time) or some new soul group. The classical organ was a great touch, but this was still soul music I thought.

    What he was singing about I didn't have a clue! It didn't help that the lyricist, as it turned out on later investigation, was actually a poet and one who employed metaphor in a way not usually found in rock lyrics. Jim Morrison of The Doors was also a poet, and he could be just as inscrutable at times. Thanks to the Internet, most lyrics are now available online as well as some personal anecdotes concerning the songs discussed by the groups and artists themselves. So now we know this is about a couple who are dating, drinking and dancing up a storm in some pub, the patrons are enjoying the dancing and encouraging them to continue, but the young man is getting dizzy and tired and so they stop and sit down at their cozy little spot. The two order another drink, but they get a tray full of drinks instead, courtesy of the patrons buying them a round. Later, when things quiet down, the "miller" or barkeep regales upon his patrons a tale, apparently one that may be a good old fashioned ghost story. The impact of his story-telling is such that the girlfriend's face turns white. One more verse later, she becomes one of "sixteen vestal virgins" getting ready to leave for sea in the mind of the young man dating her. Of course his muse-like date is someone he wants to get into a bedroom as soon as possible. All this of course is being sung metaphorically as a kind of mariner's odyssey at sea. We never get to the third and fourth verses because they never appeared on the original 45 single or the album track. Two verses and three full choruses is what we get ... but apparently all's well that ends well here.

    This song became a major hit in both the UK and the US, released in May 1967. It peaked at #1 in the UK on June 8, 1967 and #5 in the US on Billboard and Cash Box on August 12, 1967. It is considered one of the giant counterculture songs (sometimes called anthems) of the Summer of Love. With the power inherent in symbolism and metaphor so well-crafted in this song's lyrics, I have decided to follow the verses and chorus in my own manner on this video. Hope you enjoy the results.

    Real Life - Send Me An Angel (1983-84) HQ, starring Marilyn Monroe
    MUNROWS RETRO



    Published on Aug 31, 2016
    Here in the United States and internationally, 1984 was the major year in pop music of that decade. Not since 1964, twenty years earlier, had the music world witnessed such an explosion .. and no year ever has since. One of the songs I was obsessed with spinning for the audience that year was this one by Real Life which had been released in Australia in May 1983, but not until November 1983 in the US. It peaked here at #29 on the Billboard Hot 100 and at #22 on Cash Box on February 25, 1984. Another version was re-released in 1989 and it fared a little bit better on Billboard at #26.

    The angel in this video is none other than Marilyn Monroe, somewhat fitting given the name of this channel. Indeed, it is hard for me to listen to this song without thinking of her. This is the remix version at well over 6 minutes, but how I wish it had been even longer by several minutes more with so much Marilyn to go around!

    Golden Earring - Radar Love (1974) HQ
    MUNROWS RETRO



    Published on Jun 10, 2016
    The surprise hard rock hit of the summer of 1974. It came out of nowhere like a lightning bolt, blasting out of radios and jukeboxes. The faltering rock music scene, definitely headed for a nosedive off the cliff to crash into the rocks below, for a short time actually appeared on a rebound. "Radar Love" was one of a small number of songs that made a recovery of the late 60's/early 70's rock scene look possible. Although this did not happen, Golden Earring nevertheless gave us a glimpse ahead towards where things would be after a few years of correction. A few other bands had been doing the same thing, like Electric Light Orchestra. "Radar Love" gave us a promise of a future ... and it did it in a futuristic almost sci-fi manner. Guitars and synthesizers were making sounds never heard before on this song with a seductive beat and boss brass orchestral rhythm section. I can't recall a song getting more play on a summer jukebox since "Journey To The Center of The Mind" by Amboy Dukes in 1968. Since their cover of The Byrd's "Eight Miles High" in 1969, a popular underground FM radio hit in Canada and the United States, Golden Earring had been completely off America's radar screen ... but now they were back with a vengeance.

    The track originally appeared on their LP, Moontan, which was released in The Netherlands on August 24, 1973. The album and the song "Radar Love" scored high on charts there, in Germany, the UK, and much of Europe. However, it was not until 1974 that Golden Earring released a reworked version of the Moontan album in the United States. On June 25, 1974 Golden Earring's single "Radar Love" entered the Cash Box US Singles Hit List at #28 and the Moontan album entered the Cash Box US Album Hit List also at #28. "Radar Love" shot to #10 on Cash Box and #13 on Billboard on the week ending August 10, 1974.

    Blue Oyster Cult - (Don't Fear) The Reaper (1976) HQ
    MUNROWS RETRO



    Published on Oct 19, 2014
    "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" by Blue Oyster Cult is not only one of my own personal favorite heavy metal songs, but is among those selected by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the Top 500 rock songs of all time. The song is not only a romanticizing about Death's inevitability, and his personification as the Grim Reaper, but also about premature death, suicide and eternal love ("Romeo and Juliet are together in eternity"). The song and the album it appeared on, "Agents Of Fortune," came out in time for October and Halloween 1976. At that time there was a mysterious illness called Legionnaire's disease and a swine flu epidemic scare in progress in the United States. The entire US population had to be vaccinated against swine flu, myself included, beginning on October 1, 1976. The scare was unwarranted and the vaccine caused more deaths and illnesses from side effects than the disease it was intended to protect everyone against. I always thought the lyrics of "Reaper," along with its wild and scary lead guitar solo in the middle part, was especially ironic given the almost apocalyptic mood of the time. October 1976 was also a rather interesting month musically for rock music in that a few other songs appropriate for the Halloween season were also popular at the same time as Blue Oyster Cult's masterpiece: these include "Magic Man" by Heart and "Devil Woman" by Cliff Richard, as well as the rather weird TV music video with a vampire in it by George Harrison, created for his song "Crackerbox Palace" (which would not be released as a single until early 1977). In October 1978, "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" would enter the world of cinema as the rock song playing on the car radio being driven through the town of Haddonfield, Illinois by Annie Brackett (Nancy Kyes) with her friend Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) in the unforgettable film classic "Halloween."

    In any event, here is my music video, one possible interpretation out of doubtlessly many others, of one of the great legends of Halloween classic songs, "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" by Blue Oyster Cult. Have a Happy Halloween!!!

    Music: "Saptak" by Solace

    Fantasy Belly Dance: The Tarot is a collection of 20 dance performances exploring the symbolism and archetypal ideas associated with the cards of the Tarot deck.

    The performances represent nearly all the cards of the Tarot Major Arcana: Fool, Magician, High Priestess, Empress, Emperor, Hierophant, Lovers, Lust, Hermit, Wheel of Fortune, Justice, Hanged Man, Death, Temperance, Devil, Tower, Star, and Judgment.

    A number of Tarot cards are portrayed through stories or mythological imagery: In "The Magician" the hero's shadow escapes and takes over; "The Empress" is the story of the goddess Parvati; "The Hierophant" is a ritual of the revelation and worship of the goddess Isis; "The Lovers" echoes the plot of Wagner's "Venus and Tannhauser"; "The Wheel of Fortune" makes two rounds through the stories of Cleopatra and Medusa; while "Judgment" recalls the medieval motif of the Dances of Death.

    Some of the performances approach Tarot symbolism through experiences of personal growth and mysticism: "The Star" is a story of a broken heart; "Temperance" is a seductive interplay of passion and restraint; "The Hermit" is a journey of learning and overcoming; "The Tower" is a warrior dance.

    Performed by a spectacular lineup of belly dance stars, The Tarot: Fantasy Belly Dance alternates solos with group dance compositions in a wide range of belly dance styles. Contributing artists include Anasma, Andrea Anwar, Autumn Ward, Ayshe, Bellycraft, Blanca, Elisheva, Fayzah, Irina Akulenko, Michelle DeVine, Neon, Sarah Johansson Locke, Sarah Skinner, Tanna Valentine, Toshi Hamada, and Yoshina.

    AMAZONS AND COYOTES - The Dreamlovers
    DumDumDeDip



    Published on Oct 20, 2015
    This is a fun, wild, rockin' song, recorded by The Dreamlovers in 1958 (or re-released, re-recorded, or possibly just a delayed release, in 1963). It's a very danceable doo-wop tune, about dancing at a record hop, and getting a little jealous when you happen to spot your girlfriend dancing with another guy.

    For anyone interested, there is a nice background article about The Dreamlovers here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dre...

    By the way: the article says that this song was released in 1963. Unfortunately, this article does not settle the correct year of the song, since there are other sources which cite 1958 as the year.

    A very cute, wistful, upbeat song, released in 1964, in which a young teen (or near-teen) sings of her desire to be "a big girl", so that she can enjoy all of the fun and excitement that she imagines she could have, if she were "sweet sixteen". By the way: Despite a very time-consuming effort to find some background, there does not seem to be ANY information whatsoever about the singer, Carole Coby.

    However, based solely on the vocal style and tone, I wonder if she might *possibly* be either Carole King or Ellie Greenwich, the great 1960s songwriters / singers, who frequently recorded under fake names, on various songs in the early to mid-1960s).

    Trivia Note: Carole Coby, whoever she is, later recorded a song in 1965 called "My Soldier Boy" (online here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QlX5t... ). It was one of the very first songs to mention the fact of U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War.

    This is a beautiful and very moving song (also known as “Weren’t No Kin”), performed in gospel-style, about the death of President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1945, and the affection which the American people had for him, and especially poor and working people. There are several different versions of this song, often with different lyrics. This one was recorded by Otis Jackson in April 1946. The first recorded version was by the Evangelist Singers in the same year. Despite considerable searching, the only lyrics that seem to be available are the ones on this webpage, which are much longer than this version and includes detailed mention of many positive things which Roosevelt did for civil rights and the improvement of the lives of African-Americans: http://akma.disseminary.org/2008/05/w... In recent years, Jesse Winchester recorded a “Canadian” version, which praises both Roosevelt and also progressive Canadian leaders.

    Wives and Lovers- Jack Jones. This song was out in the fall of 1963. It was a perfect song for the 1950's - early 1960's era. This song also fits the character of Don Draper from the TV show, "Mad Men". Along with the pictures of Don Draper (Jon Hamm) and the cast of Mad Men, are also other ads, famous people and other pictures from the 1950's and early 1960's.

    British Intelligence (1940) [Thriller] [Romance] [War]
    Timeless Classic Movies



    Published on Dec 2, 2016
    During World War I, Franz Strendler, a master German spy has cost the British dearly. In desperation, they send for their best agent, currently undercover in Germany. Pilot Frank Bennett (Bruce Lester) is sent to pick him up, but the Germans are forewarned and Bennett is shot down. Luckily, he survives and is rescued by friendly soldiers. While recovering in a hospital, Bennett is tended by a pretty nurse, Helene Von Lorbeer (Margaret Lindsay). He tells her he loves her, but she informs him she is leaving, and they will not see each other again. However, after Bennett falls asleep, she kisses him on the cheek.

    Von Lorbeer turns out to be a spy herself. She is recalled to Germany to receive a high honor sent personally by the Kaiser and to undertake a new mission. Posing as a refugee named Frances Hautry, she infiltrates the London household of Arthur Bennett (Holmes Herbert), a cabinet minister, and, coincidentally, Frank's father. She takes her orders from Valdar (Boris Karloff), the butler. However, unbeknownst to her, he is a British double agent. Valdar later secretly reports to Colonel Yeats (Leonard Mudie), the head of British Intelligence.

    When Bennett's secretary, also a German spy, taps out a secret message in code on her typewriter, Yeats is present and recognizes it. Since only Hautry is also in the office at the time, he sets a trap for her. A captured spy named Kurz seemingly escapes from the British and flees to Hautry's bedroom. She hides him in her closet, but then betrays him when Yeats and his men show up. Afterwards, she tells Valdar that she knew "Kurz" was an imposter.

    Frank Bennett unexpectedly shows up, his squadron and others having been recalled to London for some reason. He is surprised to find his former nurse there and under a different name. Hautry is forced to reveal that she is loyal to the British. However, Valdar overhears their conversation.

    That night, the British cabinet meets in Bennett's home. It is the moment Valdar has been waiting for. He forces Hautry at gunpoint down in the cellar, where he has set a bomb to blow the house up under cover of a Zeppelin bombing raid. Hautry tells Valdar that she had no choice but to make up a story to allay Frank's suspicions. Convinced when she shows him the award she was given, Valdar finally reveals that he is Strendler.

    Fortunately, Valdar has been under surveillance. Yeats and his men rush to the cellar door. When Valdar escapes through the coal shute, Hautry unlocks the door and informs Yeats about the bomb. Valdar rushes to his hideout to transmit the stolen British plans for the spring offensive, pursued by the British, but, ironically, a Zeppelin bombs the location and kills him and his confederates before he can send his information.

    ----

    Directed by Terry O. Morse, produced by Bryan Foy, written by Anthony Paul Kelly (play), Lee Katz (screenplay), Boris Karloff as Valdar, aka Franz Strendler, starring Margaret Lindsay as Helene Von Lorbeer aka Frances Hautry, Bruce Lester as Frank Bennett, Leonard Mudie as Colonel James Yeats, Holmes Herbert as Arthur Bennett and Austin Fairman as George Bennett.

    In 1932, Jerome Howard (soon to be universally known as "Curly") joined the Three Stooges comedy team. He was replacing his older brother, Shemp, as the third Stooge, joining his older brother Moe and frizzly haired Larry Fine.

    In 1934, the team signed with Columbia Pictures and began churning out the series of comedy slapstick shorts that were to bring hilarity to the world. Within a year, Curly had established himself as the comedy star of the act. His "woo-woo"s and "n'yuk nyuk"s, as well as his incredible gift for physical, inventive, surreal comedy, made Curly Howard everyone's favorite Stooge. On the 60th anniversary of his passing, here's a look back at Curly's later years.

    From 1934 to 1944, Curly Howard and the other Stooges made 80-odd of the funniest shorts in the history of movie comedy, but by 1945, something was obviously wrong with the brilliant Curly.

    He was having a harder time than usual learning and remember his lines (although he was always a bad study anyway), his once graceful and quick movements now seemed slower and more lethargic, and his voice had lost its high-pitched vitality, now sounding deeper and more like a strained croak.

    In early 1945, Moe Howard made an appointment for his kid brother at the Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. The test results proved shocking: Curly was suffering from high blood pressure, hypertension, a retinal hemorrhage, and obesity.

    Failed Marriage
    Curly loved the good life—drinking, hanging out at clubs, seeing and dating as many beautiful women as possible. Moe, attempting to help his beloved brother settle down, tried to fix Curly up with a glamorous beauty named Marion Buxbaum. Always a sucker for a pretty face, Curly married Marion after only two weeks. Curly was soon to discover that Marion was not a very nice person and was only after his money. The marriage proved a disaster, and the unhappy couple divorced after only three months together. In the terrible divorce proceedings, Marion said of Curly: "He used filthy, vile language, kept two vicious dogs, he shouted at waiters in cafes, struck and kicked me, put out cigars in the sink." These specious accusations were disputed by all who knew Curly as a jovial, good-natured, good-hearted fellow. Curly, always a free spender, had spent a fortune buying gifts for Marion, and the divorce really shook him up. He had his first stroke soon thereafter, in early 1946.

    Stroke Aftermath
    Curly's great vigor and boyish vitality, his comedy trademarks, sank lower and lower. Instead of enabling Curly to rest after his stroke, as Moe requested, studio head Harry Cohn kept Curly churning out new Three Stooges shorts. Sadly, these final Curly shorts show him looking very old and worn, his previously starring roles greatly reduced, and, indeed, they put a bit of a black mark on his body of otherwise amazing comedy performances. Curly's appearance grew worse until finally, while filming his 97th Three Stooges short, "Half Wit's Holiday," on May 6, 1946, the straw finally broke the camel's back. Curly was supposed to participate in the film's final, climactic pie fight, but Moe spotted Curly sitting in his chair on the set. "Come on, Babe," he said. ("Babe" was Curly's nickname among his close friends.) Moe found Curly slumped over in his chair with tears running down his face; Curly had suffered another stroke. He was taken to recover to the Motion Picture Country Home and Hospital, his career as a Stooge now effectively over. He was replaced in the act by older brother Shemp.

    New Wife
    Curly finally got a happy break in 1947, when he met an attractive brunette named Valerie Newman. The two fell in love and married on July 31, 1947. Valerie was to bear Curly a daughter, Janie, the following year. She truly loved Curly and stuck by his side, through his constant downhill ride over the next few years, feeding and even bathing him as his health continued its slow deterioration in the late 1940s.

    Return to the Stooges
    After his second stroke, Curly was confined to a wheelchair, but soon recovered enough to move around himself. [​IMG]In the days of Curly's slightly improved health, he made a cameo appearance in a Three Stooges short (with his replacement, Shemp) called "Hold That Lion!" Moe, knowing Curly was frail, made sure the set was cleared of all but the absolutely necessary actors and technicians, in order to take any pressure off his brother. Curly, a brilliant comedian to the end, acquits himself quite well in his brief appearance, coming across as very funny, even doing his trademark "woo-woo-woo" sound effects. This brief cameo was to be the only recorded instance of the three Howard brothers—Moe, Curly, and Shemp—appearing together on film. (At left, a photo of all four in "Hold That Lion!")

    Renewed Life
    [​IMG]In the post-stroke days, Curly loved playing gin rummy, watching the Hollywood Stars (a local baseball team), and going to the fights at the Hollywood Legion. He and Valerie had a swimming pool built in their home, hoping Curly could use it for physical therapy. (Curly had always loved swimming.) Crazy about dogs, he enjoyed playing with his beloved pets, a collie named "Lady" and two other canines named "Salty" and "Shorty." He watched the new device, "television," and loved a little kids' puppet show called "Time for Beany." He also watched and admired a young television comedian named Jackie Gleason.

    [​IMG]During these final years, Curly let his thick, wavy hair grow back, instead of the world-famous shaved dome he had sported as a Stooge. He liked to wear a sea captain's hat (he had black and white captain hats) and, like any new father, he loved playing with and doting on his newborn daughter. In his last few years of "health," Curly was still upbeat and seemed happy, not down or sad about all that had happened to him. Contemporary photos show a smiling Curly, happily puffing on his cigar (despite his weak health, Curly still did not give up his beloved cigars), posing around the house, and horsing around with his little daughter.

    Sharing His Good Fortune
    Tom Emery, a good friend of Curly, recalls going on a drive with Curly one day in the late 1940s. Curly spotted a young girl in a wheelchair and told Tom to pull over. Curly talked to the girl at some length, asking her what she liked, what she needed, etc. Tom and Curly then drove off, and Curly bought the little girl everything she mentioned, dropping all the goodies off at her home with no card.

    Declining Health
    Curly's stay at his home lasted through the late 1940s, but his health deteriorated again, and on August 29, 1950, Curly was returned to the Motion Picture Home. Missing his pal, the collie "Lady," Curly asked Moe if he could bring the dog to stay with him at the hospital. (Curly liked sleeping with the dog when he was at home.) Sadly, when Moe brought Lady to see Curly, the reticent dog refused to enter Curly's hospital room, staying outside in the doorway.

    During the next few months, as his health got worse, Curly became confined to bed. He was put on a strict diet of boiled apples and rice. After another stroke, he was moved to the Colonial Home, but it was soon closed down for violating local fire laws. Curly was then moved to the North Hollywood Hospital and Sanitarium.

    As a consequence of his strokes, it became harder and harder for Curly to talk and communicate. One visitor during these last years recalls Curly crying because he couldn't communicate during one visit. Curly's sister-in-law remembered a time visiting Curly in the hospital when Curly was very frustrated by not being able to communicate as she and the other visitors tried to understand what he wanted. Finally, after a long and frustrating period of guessing, they realized poor Curly just wanted a bowl of ice cream. Another visitor recalls Curly trying to sit up in a chair and his hand continually falling off the arm of the chair. Moe, too, recalled Curly's tough time communicating as his health ebbed.

    By the end, Curly could only communicate with Moe by squeezing his hand, sometimes just by blinking his eyes. The hospital supervisor told Moe that Curly's physical and mental deterioration was causing the hospital inconvenience and suggested that Moe move him to a mental institution. Moe adamantly refused.

    Last Days
    Curly was soon moved to his last residence, the Baldy View Sanitarium in San Gabriel, California. It was there, on January 18, 1952, that the great Jerome "Curly" Howard passed away. He was just 48 years old. Jules White, a great director of Curly in many Three Stooges shorts, recalls one of his final visits to Curly during Curly's waning days. White never forgot Curly's words to him that day: "Gee Jules, I guess I'll never be able to make the children laugh again."
