23 April 2022

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love to answer the questions, however, and here are today's questions!

Saturday 9: Dancing in the Moonlight (1972)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) The lyrics tell us the moon is big and bright. Do you often take the time to watch the sun set or look at the moon?
I look at the moon occasionally.  I look at sunsets frequently.

2) The lead singer of King Harvest, Dave "Doc" Robinson, tells us that everyone feels "warm and right." How would you describe your mood as you answer these 9 questions?
Hmmm.  Calm.  That's about it.

3) He sings that his friends don't bark or bite. What about you? Is your bark worse than your bite?
I'm not sure that I bark or bite, actually.  If I do, I guess my bark is worse (like Polly's)

4) He believes you be unhappy when you dance. Do you agree?
I am very unhappy when I dance because I don't know how to dance and I hate it.  I pretty much never dance.

5) King Harvest was not the only name the band used. They once performed as E. Rodney Jones and the Prairie Dogs. If you ever played in a band, tell us what it was called. If you haven't, make up a band name.
I never played in a band but 3 of my kids and my daughter-in-law were in a 10 piece band called Lawsuit.  They performed for about 10 years and were very popular, especially on college campuses.  Their final concert was at a club in San Francisco and when they let people know it would be their last show, tickets sold out in half an hour.

6) Even though this was a major hit, King Harvest's record label, Perception, went bankrupt in 1974. This decade has been hard on many businesses -- especially restaurants -- and many closed their doors due to covid. Tell us about a shop or restaurant that closed recently, and that you miss.
I can't think of any shop specifically, but I know that several restaurants in town have closed.

7) This very upbeat song came from pain. While vacationing in St. Croix, songwriter Sherman Kelly was the victim of vicious gang attack and was left for dead. He wrote this song during his long recuperation and it helped him envision joy. Is there a song that reliably lifts your mood? (Yes, you can say this song. Mr. Kelly is right, it IS joyful!)
The Lawsuit song, "Thank God, You're Doing Fine" and the song that gave the name to this blog, "Funny".

8) In 1972, when this song topped the charts, Wrangler jeans were America's best-selling blue jeans. Do you often wear denim?
Never.  I have one pair of jeans that I have gotten too big to wear.

9) Random question: Which of these is completely, 100% UNTRUE of you: Greedy, lazy, or jealous?
