Song Lyric Sunday 7th August

Jim Adams is our host, and this week the theme chosen is one I put forward to find songs about Pets, Names, or Memories .
I’ve mentioned in previous posts how Maggie got her name (a people magnet) and many times Rod Stewart’s Maggie May was given credit for it.

Way back in 1971, this was Lobo’s debut single and the one I was thinking of when I suggested today’s theme. The lyrics are in the video.
Me and You and a Dog Named Boo” was written by Lobo under his real name Kent LaVoie, it appears on the Introducing Lobo album.

However, here’s a bonus for you today as Jim has extended the theme to include memories. How could I not have this! Elaine Page at her very best and IMO she has never bettered this. This clip is awesome.

There is a personal story behind this as it is a piece I can play, but I used a beer towel mat at a pub bar to work out the notes in my head as I couldn’t get to a piano. It must have looked very strange with my eyes shut in front of a glass of orange juice with my hands ‘playing’ on a piece of fabric.
When I eventually got to a keyboard, I sat down and played it without error.  The only thing I never got note perfect was the big key change finish.

Thanks Jim for choosing my theme this week.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I wondered if someone would be doing Me And You And A Dog Named Boo, as it is such a good fit for the theme. As it was your idea I guess you knew where you were going with this 😊

    Love both your choices I nearly used Me and you and a dog named boo! I thought you do Maggie by Rod Stuart?

    You must be very talented to work that out in your head 😊

    • Thank you. It is a natural gift and I am very lucky to have it. It’s not in the right key as I play mostly in F# (the black notes), but I can knock out a familiar melody with the right hand and make up my own accompaniment with the left.

    I used Boo too! Post coming up in 40 minutes 🙂

  5. I am always happy to use your suggestions Di and I love the songs that you selected for today. I just did a post about Lobo last week, but on a different song. There is nothing better than going on an adventure and bringing your dog along with you.
