Oh, and if you like Tousan's "Java," you might like "Whirlaway," too.
More like this?
Well, here is thread that might have the answer to your question
Here it is in an unadulterated form
The Entertainer (Scott Joplin)?
It was a huge hit in the 70s as part of the soundtrack for the film The Sting.
And now my Good Humor Ice Cream guy plays it from his rusty speaker as he approaches Casa de Peegoo every Saturday afternoon.
"Hello, My Ragtime Gal" by the Andrews Sisters? Was later in a Looney Tunes cartoon?
Only two come to mind.........
Down at Papa Joe's
The Lambeth Waltz
This was mine, a local band's instrumental song, called Fantasy.
Little did I know back then that it is only an interesting spin on a, how to put it, well-known melody:
Your intro reminds me of Gene Vincent's Race with the Devil ( Cliff Gallup)
But it also reminds me of Cliff Gallup's September in the Rain, instrumental but guitar
Music Box Dancer
I was about to post this. Great little melody.
Just to confirm, you grew up in the States, right? Probably a silly question but if we're talking Radio Madagascar or something I'm gonna stop trying....
Now that is downright FUNKY! Nice. But not what I'm looking for.
I love me some Vince Guaraldi. Mr. Gatton tore it up pretty good, but I can't say he won me over. No accounting for taste, I guess.
Nope, but it's mining the same vein. This is really a stumper...
Nope, I would've got that one right off. That bit is still one of my favorites.
I listened to both of those, and neither of them was the right one, but now I know the name of another song that I never knew what to call, but it was always in the back of my head (Down At Papa Joe's). Thanks!
Very nice tunes, thanks for that! I've never been very good at the Rockabilly double-picking thing, but I put in the extra effort just to get the feel down. Reminds me of why many Rockabilly players use a slap-back echo; makes it a bit easier.
Still looking for a piano tune though...
Yes, a very nice tune and a classic. So much so that I wouldn't have any trouble remembering the title.
It’s kind of an obvious method so maybe you’ve tried but..
Have you tried searching the internet for hits or popular songs played on the radio in whatever year you remember
If it was a billboard hit or popular I’m sure there’s a record of it
Do you have it narrowed down to a year? Or a couple year span at least?
Yep, in a little town smack dab in the center of Oregon. We had one radio station that played a lot of the then-current fluff pop like Carpenters, the Association, 5th Dimension, etc. and lots of instrumentals from that time like Ferrante & Teicher, Herb Alpert, Floyd Cramer, etc.. Going down THAT rabbit hole, I found another song that I never knew the title of that I remember the station playing. Floyd Cramer - "Last Date". That's not the song I'm looking for, but it was floating in the same batch of memory cells.
