[color=#000000ost_uid0]We should start a "Can-anybody-identify-this-obscurish-ong" thread. Then maybe we'll figure out who on the board has the same obscurish taste in music as ourselves.

Gah. Pluralistic grammar killing me. :falls over:

[color=#000000ost_uid0]You would never identify some of the music I listen to. Mainly because it's about as unmainstream as you can get. [/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Celeste's suonds like it could be Glenn Miller, but it probably isn't. I haven't got a clue about any of the others.

And now for my own (although it's not really that obscure):

I've looked at the ocean
tried hard to imagine

from Wester Ross to Nova Scotia.

[color=#000000ost_uid0][iost_uid0]Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy[/iost_uid0] got it's debut in the movie [iost_uid0]Buck Privates,[/iost_uid0] won the Academy Award that year (1941) for best original song, and went on to be further popularize by The Andrews Sisters.

That's off the top of my head -- mighta got some wrong.


Um, I think it's [iost_uid0]Letter from America[/iost_uid0] PHJ, if I remeber the title correctly.

[color=#000000ost_uid0][iost_uid0]Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy[/iost_uid0] was sung by me and two of my friends at the regional literary competition in 11th grade. We won. I can't remember if that was the year our trio won at state or not. The main thing I remember is that the girl who sang 2nd soprano never smiled while we were singing it.

I don't know any of the other songs that've been mentioned.[/colorost_uid0]

It's actually the continuation of mine (psst...it's 'Revaille'...although it's been running through my head for the past few days, and I keep hearing that word as "Beverly" for some reason).

[quoteost_uid0]It's by The Proclaimers, who aren't terribly well known, but whom I happen to like.[/quoteost_uid0]

The Scottish Twits! Who can forget them, and their single solitary hit? (OK, two if you count "Ah'm On Muh Whee".)[/colorost_uid0]

They were certainly more successful on my side of the Atlantic than they were on yours, but then the US/Canadian music buying public seems to be singularaly unable to appreciate British music anyway (with the major exception of The Beatles of course who just happen to be the best band of all time).[/colorost_uid0]

Tease :P



[quoteost_uid0]They were certainly more successful on my side of the Atlantic than they were on yours, but then the US/Canadian music buying public seems to be singularaly unable to appreciate British music anyway [/quoteost_uid0]

I actually first heard The Scottish Twits (which is what Dad called them) in Australia in 1988 or so. Then the dropped off the charts like a rock, and when I got back to Canada they'd been obscure for a while. 500 Miles (I'm Gonna Be) got used on a movie soundtrack, and then everyone remembered them. That was a good song. I butchered it once at karaoke.



[quoteost_uid0]with the major exception of The Beatles of course who just happen to be the best band of all time).

[/quoteost_uid0]

The Beatles, the Stones, Pet Clark, Herman's Hermits, etc. I have a three-CD set of British Invasion tunes, usually recorded several years or more after their heyday and consisting of the suckier songs of the era.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]OK, this is a bit more obscure than my last one:

Then it's easy to believe
Somebody's been lying to me
But when the wrong word goes in the right ear
I know you've been lying to me
It's getting rough, off the cuff I've got to say enough's enough[/colorost_uid0]
