    A drummer I played with a long time ago had a part-time job as a karaoke DJ at a local bar. One night he showed up for work in a foul mood, and said, "If one more person requests to sing 'Crazy" by Patsy Cline, I'm going to lose it." Well, lo and behold, some people arrived after he had said that, and a lady in that group requested to sing... you guessed it. And Dan LOST IT. BIG time. He then got fired.

    The next day, the bar owner apologized to him for firing him and hired him back.

    This has nothing to do with the subject of this thread, but I just drank a cup of strong coffee and had to tell somebody about this. Lucky you.

    I play irish folk ballads with some friends, have done for years. I love the song 'peggy gordon' but i made the mistake of saying to the banjo player that the subject of the song was 14 years old. He refuses to play it, even though historically she probably would have been married at 15 anyway because most people only lived to 35 at most and were likely to have died of tb or cholera before then.
    Ah well

    Hey, that song could be problematic. It's not nice to make light of mental health issues!

    Yeah, um, how did you forget "woke up with wood"?

    While I like their music ok, the hyper juvenile lyrics are annoying and detract from the music, and that's coming from a guy that is ok with crude, generally

    How many female singers does it take to sing Crazy?

    All of them.

    I love how they change 15 to 13 on the "Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out" version!

    I loved that song in 1969. When I dusted it off to play and sing a few weeks ago, couldn’t do it.
    It was a really, really weird song.

    More or less I understand what you mean about Danny’s Song but I think that line does fit with the rest of the song.

    I see that 1955 and I are the only ones to like this so far, hmmmmm, I'm worried I'm beginning to understand, I just don't know what it is I understand.

    Auugh. Thankfully it's time has mercifully passed, but we'd get requests for "Crazy *****" by Buck Cherry. Auuugh.

    Great band name, though.

    And in the Yardbird's version, Clapton's solo was mixed way too high.

    ...interesting suggestion. To be fair, not illogical given the information available.

    IMG_2946.jpg

    I'm the guy with the tie in the middle - the lady with the cap? She & I have been bandmates in two separate band over a period of more than ten years. The photo was taken after a gig at a local VFW. At my daily workplace, I've worked for, worked by, shared meals with, etc., etc.

    Not trying to make a contest out of it, but your concept is flawed.

    But I guess I didn't couch my request accurately enough. I've seen that wikipedia piece - you're not the first person to point me at it. It's describes a process, a trope, the daily dozens kind of thing, but it isn't really useful in translating the specific line in Mustang Sally - that no one else, even my black friends, can suggest a reasonable translation. I'm interested in words.

    IMO, it's not used by anyone currently; and was rarely used in the way it appears in Mustang Sally.

    So how about it? You got anything besides a wiki-link? Can you translate that exact line - using Wonder Bread words that even your 8th grade english teacher would understand? Or is it that all you want to do is ride around...
