FlinterFile: Harry Chapin- W.O.L.D.

harry chapin wold

In 1974, Harry Chapin made a song about the radio. It was the time that DJ’s had a lot of influence on the music that was played in their show. Just like it is now, stations could change their format and therefore change DJ’s. Many DJ’s did want to be on air, so they looked for another station, and cared less about their private life. As Harry Chapin was promoting his music, he got to know quite some DJ’s as he played in their shows. The song was inspired by several of them, and he thought that it would be good to write a song about DJ’s if you wanted to get your music on air. The station WOLD exists, but it would rather be a play on the word WORLD. It hit the charts at number 36 in the US and 34 in the UK. Enjoy

Song of the day: Village People- YMCA

Village-People-Cruisin-521825

Yes, this is a varied bunch of people… And yes, it’s old music, but there is a song on the album that even young people know…
The Village People are responsible for what maybe is the biggest sing-a-long song in the world…

Who doesn’t know the lines It’s fun to stay in the Y.M.C.A., it’s fun to stay in the Y.M.C.A.

Yes, of course! The song of the day is Y.M.C.A.

Enjoy singing!

Song of the day: Rigby- Earth Meets Water / Train- Mermaid

The last new songs for March…
Next week it’s April!

The first new song is made by a band which I like very much. And actually, this band is made by Holland…
Their first song was popular in the Netherlands, and after that, they became popular in the rest of the world.
I’m talking about Train with their new song Mermaid!

For the second song I don’t really have an introduction, since the music says all!
All I can say is that it is a very good song!
It’s Rigby with Earth Meets Water!

And please vote for the Song of the day top 50, since I don’t have that much votes!
