About | Theme: CLASSIC | Roll
Next week "FLEXIBLE"



..."of or characteristic of a form or system felt to be of first significance before modern times"

When I read the word or hear the word, I immediately think "classic - having to do with music..." Well, this idea came to me. I'm gonna go with the CLASSIC MUSIC OF THE 20TH CENTURY! And coming to mind is: Glenn Miller. He, in his time, was a legend. But now he and his music...now it's consider classical jazz. But the thing --my point in classic this week, is the 'significance of being before modern times'. What could be more far away from modern times of today than a 45rpm vinyl record! [and for all you youthful, youngsters, the rpm stands for "revolutions per minute"...you see, the thing called 'record' player is classic too *snort*] AND here's another....back in my youth the RCA dog was a popular dude, once a real live dog!! [to read about the RCA dog --NIPPER-- click here] Today you see only the symbol....which is a classic in itself-------

Some of my all time favorites are within this box!!
String of Pearls
Stardust
Tuxedo Junction
In the Mood
Chattanooga Choo Choo

.....*sigh*

What I'd say now is "These songs are from The Good Ol' Days" The wondrous times of my younger years. And still soooooo good! You just don't hear much music like this; very rarely recorded anymore.






...and don't get me started talkin' 'bout 78s!!! Those are even 'older' and more classic than the 45s....we'd be here all day!!!!

Never heard of Glenn Miller you say? You are missing out on a great artist!

HERE'S A LINK TO HIS 'IN THE MOOD' MP3 ---scroll down the site a bit, to the player and PLAY

  1. Hi Anni,

    I've heard of Glenn Miller and I even have some old albums of his. I also have some 78's in the attic from my parent's collection. My problem with the oldest albums is they break in half if you drop them (been there done that). Great take on the theme. I hope you have a pleasant weekend.

  2. Wow, blogger is REALLY acting up--it wouldn't let me comment.

    I love Glenn Miller, and I LOVE big band. My kids and I love Swing and all kinds of classic jazz and blues. Good stuff. And my kids LOVE my 45s.

  13. Well of course I remember Glenn Miller. I'm a "little old lady". A very enduring sound. A classic for sure.

  14. Glenn Miller and his music may be a bit before my time but I can still appreciate it for the great sounds. Nothing but some Glenn Miller music or other musicians of his caliber could possibly make an evening for two, dinner, wine, candlelight possibly more romantic, could it? Could you picture a nice romantic dinner setting with rap or heavy metal blasting in the background and it put you "in the mood?" I sure can't!

  15. Hi Anni,

    I love the music of Glenn Miller. His music is definitely classic. And I well remember 78s, 33s and 45s. When I was about ten, Santa brought me a record player for Christmas and two 45s. Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer was sung by Gene Autry. I can't remember who sang Frosty, but Gene was one of the cowboys who came on TV on Saturday morning. It was a show we were allowed to watch if our chores were done.

    Thanks for walking with me down Memory Lane. I had a great time.

  21. Hi Anni ~~ Great post and memorories
    for a lot of us. One of my sons has
    a wind up His Master's Voice player that plays 78s. I still have a player for lp a but never use it. I have a
    Glenn Miller cd. Glad you liked my
    jokes, and my son John has had some skin cancers surgically removed, but
    hopefully, he will be all right.
    Thanks for your concern. Take care,
    Love, Merle.

  25. Hi Anni,

    I agree that Glenn Miller is a classic. On and Stardust is dream mmusic! I have some 45s and 78s stashed in a box somewhere. And some old Dean Martin records. Thank goodness all that beautiful music is now available on CDs, and the Golden Oldies radio station is the favorite around my house.

    I enjoyed your theme. Have a lovely weekend.

  42. Hi again! We don't know what make the classic car is over at my blog or the year!! It must be late 50's or early 60's because of those fins!!
    We were out on a little outing last June and they were having a fair over at Lexington, we stopped in at Mac Donald's and when we came out the car was in there parking lot in all it glory and Kelly snapped the pictures....
    No one was around to ask what it was so we are still in the dark!!

    Last night I let out a war hoop when I was looking at my Chiefs Icon and Kelly said "WHAT" I had on my glasses and I could SEE and I saw the little heart on my icon I love that!! I thought it said Carolyn the Chiefs!! Now I know it says Carolyn LOVES the Chiefs!!!! Sometimes I can be pretty dorky!!! :)

    I loved it when I thougt it said it Carolyn the Chiefs and now I love it even more!!! I love it really because of the thought that went into it and it is from you!!

  49. I remember Mom and Dad listening to Glenn Miller, and I can usually pick out his songs if I hear them played. He had a unique sound. I think my favorite was String of Pearls, but I tend to get it mixed up with In the Mood.

    Oh, and I still cry when I see "The Glenn Miller Story" with Jimmy Stewart and June Allyson and he plays "Little Brown Jug."

    Thanks for the nice comments on my Halloween yard. I STILL don't have everything put away! lol
