Nope, I'm afraid Dizzie, Miles and Louis can't touch me with their music. I'm more into pop and especially the sixties :-)
Monk, Mingus, Coltrane, Gillespie, Miles Davis, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald... NONE of them? Oh, my..... My life would feel really silent without their music in the background.....
@ Pdevredis: naaaaa, I'm not into jazz myself... :-)@ Shazzaannie: you never heard of them? How weird. This were famous though.
Interesting looking bunch - never heard of them.
No, June, it certainly, absolutely, most definitely wasn't rock or reggae! LOL! And I'm with you on musical tastes, except I'd add jazz..... :-)))
So they weren't in your jukebox :-)Can't blame you when you like rock and reggae most
never heard of David's song either. that's probably because I only like rock music and reggae, my guess it wasn't either of them
Told it before, Pdevredis. The educational part of Jigidi that is :-)
I just played the song--never heard it before, never heard of them, either! Well, I'm always learning something new on Jigidi! :-)))
And you don't know "David's Song" either then, June? That amazes me as it was a great hit in the UK too.
I live in England and I never heard of them either
Most probably, Laura, but Cevas knew them and she's from Canada. So maybe they were popular over there too
Never heard of 'em. I guess they were popular mainly in Europe.
Still thinking if I should post an easy one or an incredibly hard one tomorrow :-)
Well done Cevas, and thanks. I'm an early riser so I do get there before others - I'm learning not to be too greedy!
Yes, I often check your Starlord2 puzzles!! Thank you Starlord. You are kind to post some puzzles at that time!!
I never heard of that one, June ... one can't know them all :-)That's why Starlord2 was born, Cevas. But he's been quiet for 2 days now
Oh ... I forgot to thank Squishy who knew the answer but didn't say it!!! Thank you for thinking of us over here in the Pacific Time Zone!!
Oh that reminded me of an old Dr hook Favourite 'Making Love and Music'
Yep, they had lots of kids. I'm amazed they still had time to make music :-)
as far as I could gather from Wikipedia half of them were born in Spain and half of them in America, one was born in Ireland. they lived a kind of gypsy lifestyle. some of them are still playing but it's a bit complicated as to what they have split off into
Indeed, Aggie, no hint needed.I didn't know they were popular in Canada, Cevas. Must have been worldwide thing then. An angel is also a great song. I don't think they're doing anything musical anymore.Oh wowwwww. Delving through Wikipedia. That's bound to keep you busy one way or the other. But indeed, when you start reading and following link after link, you come across interesting things.
not waiting, just feverishly delving through the annals of Wikipedia etc and not getting far, however while doing that i saw a lot of interesting stuff
Thank you Starlord, June and Aggie!!! David's song is great! And I also like An Angel.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AIGGVIkcyWU
I'm sorry wasn't on often today :-( Busy busy...It should have been time for a hint, Aggie, but Cevas gave us the right answer. Three cheers for Canada :-) Their greatest hit over here was David's Song.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTurZeM4eckAh June, you were waiting for someone to give the right answer? :-)
hurray for cevas, now I can get on with my work
Are they the Kelly Family?
I do have a brain ... believe it or not...
Thinking, Pkin? You ? :-)
They're not 'the Cowsills'; Aggie :-(
I'm thinking ..thinking.. thinking..
wiki is where I checked the eurovision thing - sadly my friend is no longer with us to check with her. I remember her being very excited about them being on eurovision - I forgot they didn't make it to the competition. Just read a little bit about them - it must have been a very interesting life for them all! Thank goodness for all of life's eccentrics.
I didn't know they competed in the pre-competition of the Euro songcontest, Squishy. I always thought they were Irish, but when the answer is found or when I need to give a hint, Wikipedia knows it all. :-)
Actually - just checked my facts - they didn't get to the eurovision, but they sang in the competition to get on the show. (I only know this band because one of my friends, a northern European herself, was a great fan of theirs and played their music constantly.)
I know it Starlord - but I'm going to give someone else a chance today. They originated in the US but appeared in a famous singing contest representing another country...
It's not the Von Trapp Family, Treker. It is a family though :-)
Got me AGAIN! (I'm thinking the Von Trapp Family from Austria?)
