Nope, I'm afraid Dizzie, Miles and Louis can't touch me with their music.
I'm more into pop and especially the sixties :-)

pdevredis

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.....

starlord

@ 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.

pdevredis

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..... :-)))

starlord

So they weren't in your jukebox :-)
Can't blame you when you like rock and reggae most

juneshone

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

starlord

Told it before, Pdevredis. The educational part of Jigidi that is :-)

pdevredis

I just played the song--never heard it before, never heard of them, either! Well, I'm always learning something new on Jigidi! :-)))

starlord

And you don't know "David's Song" either then, June?
That amazes me as it was a great hit in the UK too.

juneshone

I live in England and I never heard of them either

starlord

Most probably, Laura, but Cevas knew them and she's from Canada. So maybe they were popular over there too

LauraMcGaffey

Never heard of 'em. I guess they were popular mainly in Europe.

starlord

Still thinking if I should post an easy one or an incredibly hard one tomorrow :-)

squishy2

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!

cevas

Yes, I often check your Starlord2 puzzles!! Thank you Starlord. You are kind to post some puzzles at that time!!

starlord

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

cevas

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!!

juneshone

Oh that reminded me of an old Dr hook Favourite 'Making Love and Music'

starlord

Yep, they had lots of kids. I'm amazed they still had time to make music :-)

juneshone

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

starlord

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.

juneshone

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

cevas

Thank you Starlord, June and Aggie!!!
David's song is great! And I also like An Angel.

aggie

Hip hip hooray for cevas, eh. Starlord, she didn't even need to have a hint either.

starlord

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.

Ah June, you were waiting for someone to give the right answer? :-)

juneshone

hurray for cevas, now I can get on with my work

cevas

Are they the Kelly Family?

aggie

uhmmmmm....time for a hint?

pkin38

I do have a brain ... believe it or not...

starlord

Thinking, Pkin? You ? :-)

starlord

They're not 'the Cowsills'; Aggie :-(

aggie

Cowsills? Indian Lake....

pkin38

I'm thinking ..thinking.. thinking..

squishy2

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.

starlord

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. :-)

squishy2

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.)

squishy2

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...

starlord

It's not the Von Trapp Family, Treker. It is a family though :-)

treker

Got me AGAIN! (I'm thinking the Von Trapp Family from Austria?)
