RARE & SCRATCHY ROCK 'N ROLL -034 - WHAT'D THEY SAY? - THE NONSENSE LYRICS TOP 40
We play lots of "doo wops," "shoobie doo's," and "la la la's" on Rare & Scratchy Rock ‘N Roll. This episode is devoted entirely to those beloved nonsense lyrics.
And we’ll test your oldies I.Q. as we sample brief previews of these nonsense numbers. We’ve selected 40 such babbling blasts from the past. Then, you get to identify them before we play longer snippets that clearly reveal the names of each record and act.
Some of the performers will surprise you. In addition to numerous rhythm and blues and doo wop acts, artists such as the Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, Neil Sedaka, and even Frank Sinatra included meaningless meanderings in some of their most meaningful melodies.
And based on the numerous names mentioned above, you probably know in advance some of the songs we’re going to play. We hope you’ll play along with us on this podcast.
