What mental picture comes to mind with the word Bubble Gum?
Kind of reminds me of Bazooka. Remember all those inane jokes that were wrapped around the candy? How many did you save for you to be able to send away for that magical item? You know, that very cool and hi-tech Person to Person spy phone that was attached by a really long string? The only metal component was the cheap tin cup that resembled the ear piece of your parent's phone.
At least the gum blew some decent bubbles.
If I don't mean the candy, what DO I refer to?
LOL! Music, of course.
Did you know that there is music labeled "Bubblegum Rock"? - ( btw- the link states the Bubblegum rock is rejected by people over the age of 15 - Guess I'm 15 permanently folks, because I LOVE these songs!! [39 & holding, LOL] )
I bet you'd like some examples, right?
I'm happy to share a few.
" Yummy Yummy Yummy, I got love in my tummy and I feel like loving you. "
"Tracy, when I'm with you, something you do, bounces me off the ceiling. Tracy ,Day after day,
when you're this way, I get a lovin' feeling ..."
"I thought love was only true in fairy tales, then for someone else but not for me
... ah love was out to get me, that's the way it seemed.
Disappointment haunted all my dreams, then I saw her face,
now I'm a believer,
Not a trace of doubt in my mind... I'm in love ...."
" Hey girl whatcha you doin' down there,
dancin' alone every night while I live right above you,
I can hear your music playing,
I can feel your body swaying,
One floor below me, you don't even know me, I love you.
On my darlin', Knock three times on the ceiling if you want me,
twice on the pipe, if the answer is no ...."
" Children behave!
That's what they say when we're together.
And watch how you play,
They don't understand,
and so we're running just as fast as we can,
holding onto one anothers hand,
trying to get away into the night
and then you put your arms around me as we tumble to the ground and then you say,
I think we're alone now, there doesn't seem to be anyone around ...."
" My baby love,
my baby loves love,
and she's got what it takes and she knows how to use it ...(twice)
I was lonely once in this great big world ..."
Ah, Honey honey,
You are my candy girl,
and you got me wanting you.
Ah, sugar, sugar,
you are my candy girl.
and you got me wanting you.
I just can't believe the loveliness of loving you ( I just can't believe it's true) "
Do you recognize any of these lyrics?
Can you sing some of the melodies?
If you can - then you understand the appeal of pure bubblegum music.
These tunes stay in your head.
You find yourself bopping to a mental doowop.
Your hips shimmy and shuffle to the rhythym in your mind.
Bubblegum - whether candy or music, both are sweet and are a joy to savor.
I had some cool pics but Blogger is being uppity again. Hence the links. Hope you had fun visiting today!
