Uncle Sling's Great American Circus of Fine Friday Jukebox Video Values!

..I'll work on the title a little bit later.

Times being what they are,I thought I'd present a little two-for-the-price of-one-mini-concert for this week's Friday funfest.
Isaac and Phil Everly,known collectively as The Everly Brothers,were a profound influence on such harmonious icons as The Beatles,The Beach Boys,and Simon and Garfunkel.
Just give a listen,and I guarantee you'll recognize that influence,and perhaps even come away thinking to yourself,.. 'Oh..yeah..whatever'.

They hold the distinction of having more Top 100 Hits on the Billboard charts than any other duo,and only fall into second place behind Hall and Oats for Top 10!

Still,..I think their greatest accomplishment may very well be that they were able to use the phrase 'Gee-Whiz' as a rhyming lyric,and totally make it work!



All I have to do is dream/Cathy's clown

my sister used to play this stuff 24/7 until the beatles and bob dylan came along.

it took years of drinking to get these lyrics out of my head.

Sweet. (How cool is that, that one word is way better than my multiple paragraphs of yacking?)

Mom- Me Too!..I was pleased to find this very early video of them.

Billy P.- ..just ignore the 'Sing along with Sling' invitation when it comes in the mail!

Boooda Babe!- I LOVE your multiple yak attacks!
I promise..I don't stare off into space wishing 'Lord,..please kill me now!' or anything like I normally do when women talk.

Sling, I hope you have a really good weekend friend. It's always a pleasure to stop in for a visit...(but no killer stories, okay?)

Sling..I am often so totally enamored by the hairdo's that it distracts me from the music....
BTW, how are you doing, sweetie?

What a trip down memory lane - I remember seeing them at the club next to my office in Toronto or was it the El Macombo ... okay the route on that lane can be a bit fuzzy at times but I do remember dancing to them at school dances, house parties and when they'd show up on American Bandstand.

It wouldn't play for me! But I do remember the Everly Brothers fondly from my childhood.

I guess I'll just have to hum...

I have a video of Slim Whitman playing 'A claire de lune' on the kazoo lined up for next week.

Don't you know that life is always good in Sling's Domain?

Willym- All of what you said!..
My big sister taught me to dance to fellas just like this!

Doralong- It sorta does roll trippingly off the tongue,doesn't it?

Evil G.- Sorry it's not playing for you,but if you're like me,the memory jog works just fine.

Citizen- Thanks for playing along! ;)

Yellerdawg- ..you lost me after 'Pure as the driven snow'..

I love this music. It reminds me that I really should have been born many years earlier than I was, musical taste-wise. :)

Miss HP- You weren't born too late..You're just wise beyond your years!
