Song Lyrics Sunday, The Image Captured!

Jim Adams

It’s Sunday and time for John Adams’s Song Lyric Sunday May 29, This prompt is : Appearance, Image, Likeness, Object, Picture, Photograph.

First up Appearance and Image initially I though of Vouge by Madonna but then I thought no… Lonnie Donegan.

I was four years old in 1957 but I remember my brothers and sisters all being into Lonnie Donegan and they loved to dance to his music. Infact I can recall them improvising a skittle group! The song is very much about teenagers.. a new thing then, and them getting dressed up and made up to be in fashion!

Vernon Dalhart recorded “Puttin’ On the Style” in December 1925 and by 1926 it was a popular hit.The song was collected in the Catskills by Norman Cazden from Ernie Sagar in 1945 showing that it had entered oral tradition. Another version has also been collected from oral tradition in West Virginia.

“Puttin’ On the Style” was a 1957 hit for skiffle artist Lonnie Donegan. It was recorded live at the London Palladium and released as a double A-side along with “Gamblin’ Man” and reached No. 1 in the UK Singles Chart in June and July 1957, where it spent two weeks in this position.[4] It was Donegan’s second consecutive No. 1 in the UK and the UK’s first double-sided chart topper.[5] It was the last UK chart-topper to be solely issued in 78rpm format, as Pye Nixa did not release it on 7″ single at the time (although it was later re-released as a 7″).

Lyrics
Sweet sixteen, goes to church just to see the boys
Laughs and screams and giggles at every little noise
Turns her face a little and turns her head awhile
But everybody knows she’s only putting on the style

That’s what all the young folks are doing all the while
And as I look around me, I’m sometimes apt to smile
Seeing all the young folks putting on the style

Young man in the hot-rod car, driving like he’s mad
With a pair of yellow gloves he’s borrowed from his dad
He makes it roar so lively just to see his girlfriend smile
But she knows he’s only putting on the style

That’s what all the young folks are doing all the while
And as I look around me, I’m sometimes apt to smile
Seeing all the young folks putting on the style

Preacher in the pulpit roars with all his might
Sing Glory Hallelula with the folks all in a fright
Now you might think he’s satan that’s coming down the aisle
But it’s only our poor preacher, boys, it’s putting on his style

That’s what all the young folks are doing all the while
And as I look around me, I’m sometimes apt to smile
Seeing all the young folks putting on the style

That’s what all the young folks are doing all the while
And as I look around me, I’m sometimes apt to smile
Seeing all the young folks putting on the style

That’s what all the young folks are doing all the while
And as I look around me, I’m sometimes apt to smile
Seeing all the young folks putting on the style

By 1966 I was thirteen and very interested in fashion and pop music… Plus my sister F. was in the fashion business and I was lucky because she was very skilled at running me up outfits .

Dedicated Follower of Fashion” is a 1966 song by British band the Kinks. It lampoons the contemporary British fashion scene and mod culture in general. Originally released as a single, it has been included on many of the band’s later albums.

In the mid-1960s fashion in Britain was becoming increasingly daring and outrageous, driven by the youth-oriented culture of Swinging LondonBoutiques such as Bibadesigners like Mary Quant, and the television personalities like Cathy McGowan who popularised them became celebrated as much as the entertainers who wore their mod clothes.

Fashion trends changed rapidly, and the Carnaby Street shops did a brisk business from those trying to avoid seeming out of step with the latest craze. Ray Davies saw all this and satirised the hypothetical extreme, a superficial dandy whose “clothes are loud but never square / It will make or break him so he’s got to buy the best … He thinks he is a flower to be looked at … In matters of the cloth he is as fickle as can be.”

Ray Davies claimed that the song was inspired by a fight he had with a fashion designer at a party:

I got pissed off with [a fashion designer at a party] always going on about fashion. I was just saying you don’t have to be anything; you decide what you want to be and you just walk down the street and if you’re good the world will change as you walk past. I just wanted it to be the individual who created his own fashion. … [It was] a terrible brawl. I kicked him, and I kicked his girlfriend up the arse.

Davies claims he wrote the song in one sitting, typing the lyrics out on a typewriter, with no later revision.[citation needed] It was performed with Davies mostly accompanying himself on acoustic guitar, with the rest of the band joining in on the “It will make or break him so he’s got to buy the best ’cause…” and echoing the “Oh yes he is” lines in the refrain. The song contains two lines from the 1905 English adventure novel The Scarlet Pimpernel; “they seek him here, they seek him there”.

A little aside Ray Davis was a Guest Speaker at our youngest son’s graduation which unbelievably was nearly twenty years ago.

I was nine when this song came out and again it was very popular in my childhood home. It’s a great song and I have always loved it!

..

A Picture of You” is a song by English entertainer Joe Brown. Written by John Beveridge and Peter Oakman, it was a number 2 UK hit single for Brown in the summer of 1962. Brown recorded his version at Pye Records, and the single was released as Piccadilly 7N 35047.

Although “A Picture of You” is designated as the B-side of “A Lay-About’s Lament”, it was this song which became the chart hit. The song spent nine weeks in the UK Singles Chart Top 5 (from the week of 14 June 1962 through the week of 9 August 1962) during a nineteen-week chart run. The song was placed thirteenth on the chart of overall single sales for the calendar year 1962 in the UK.

The album A Picture of You, Joe Brown’s first, was issued on Pye’s budget Golden Guinea label (the records were marketed at the price of one Guinea, or one pound and a shilling) in 1962, and entered the NME album chart at number 10 on 25 August 1962. It stayed in the top ten for the next 15 weeks. The album also included the smaller hits Shine (reached No 33 in the UK singles charts in 1961) and What A Crazy World We’re Livin’ In (reached number 37 in the UK singles charts in 1962, just prior to A Picture of You).

In the night, there are sights to be seen
Stars like Jewels on the Crown of a Queen
But the only sight I wanna view
Is that wonderful Picture of you On a Streetcar, or in the CaféAll of the evening, and most of the day
My mind is in a maze what can I do? I still see that picture of you It was last Summer, I fell in love
My heart told me what to do
I saw you there on the crest of a hill
An? I took a little picture of you Then you were gone, like a dream in the night
With you went my Heart, my Love and my Life
I didn? t know your name, what could I do? I only had a picture of you Then you were gone, like a dream in the night
With you, went my Heart, my Love and my Life
I didn? t know your name, what could I do? I only had a picture of you, oh yeah
That wonderful picture of you, I? m left with a picture of you, oh yeah
That wonderful picture of you

Storms are arising in my heart, hundred times a day, O girl!

Tu Sapne Mein Aa Hi Jaati Hai… Tu Neend Udaa Hi Jaati Hai… (x2)

Tu Mil Ek Baar Kude…
Meet me once, O girl!
Main Dekhun Teri Photo, Sau Sau Baar Kude… (x2)
I look at Your photo, hundred times a day, O girl!

Deewana Tune Kar Diya Aise Tere Bin Ab Reh Na Sakoon
You’ve made me crazy in such a way that I can’t live without You
Dil Ki Baat Tujhe Aakar Main Keh Na Sakoon
I’m not able to come and express the feelings of my heart(to You)
Deewana Tune Kar Diya Aise Tere Bin Ab Reh Na Sakoon…

Meri Good Morning Tu Hai, Meri Good Night Bhi Tu
You are my good morning, You are my good night
(My days begin and end only with You)
Yeh Duniya Wrong Lage, Meri Liye Right Bhi Tu
The whole world seems wrong, only You are the right one for me(it seems so)
Tu Ban Meri Jaan Kude… Deewana Nirmaan Kude…
Become the love of my life, O girl! Establish me as Your crazy lover, O girl!
Tu Kar Ehsaan Kude…
Do this favour on me, O girl!

Main Dekhun Teri Photo, Sau Sau Baar Kude… (x2)
I look at Your photo, hundred times a day, O girl!
Ke Uthde Tufaan Seene Vich, Sau Sau Baar Kude… (x2)
Storms are arising in my heart, hundred times a day, O girl.
