Never heard The Thing song before - but the melody of the chorus was familiar. Must have been lifted straight from this old English folk song.

This old tune from 1931 8) features on another thread - so i thought it was worth posting the original here for reference.

I'm not sure of the desription of tunes that are asked for here. But here is an old one that has been recorded by many other singers over the decades.   Prisoner's Song by Vernon Dalhart    It is also known by the title "I Wish I Had Someone to Love Me".

Prisoners Song.... I never knew the title of this old tune Mom played on the pump organ and sometimes on her accordion.  It brought back fond memories from long long ago.

Yeah, a lot of us useta sing this song (well, the melody anyway ::)) a lot when we were kids, (I know I did) but never did know the real words to it. ;D. Usually started out with "If I had the wings of an eagle," and after that, we just got creative. :-[

Prisoner's Song   --    I do not remember where or when I first heard it, but about ten years ago I spent a long time looking for all the versions available in Youtube.com. There was a plethora, a bunch, a large number anyhow, of recordings of this song.    SEarch for two names: "Prisoner's Song" and "I Wish I Had Someone to Love me".

Wikepedia.org has a lot of information about Vernon Dalhart. The Wikipedia article says that Vernon Dalhart's  Prisoner's  Song impressed the recording companies enough that they scoured the "south", looking for other fine, unknown music. That's  how the Carter Family came to light.

In the Jailhouse Now     -    If you liked Prisoner's Song, try In the Jailhouse Now

Part of my list of responses when someone said I'm really strange for not knowing the name Celine Dione. The other person never heard of Astor Piazzolla, Carlos Gardel, Vernon Dalhart or Erik Satie, so I guess we're even.

Does anybody know a verse for any song that includes the name of the sports writer, Grantland Rice. Back in the 1950s my father sang a verse that included "Grandland Rice". I think it was a verse of "In the Jailhouse Now".   Do you boys and girls have any idea?

Streetlegal, Thanks for the Mood Indigo by Duke Ellington. I'll try anything with Duke Ellington's name on it.

I found this old clip from 1976 8) from an Australian TV show. It occurred to me that if we could distill the essence of the mid 70s into a bottle, something like this would come out.

yeah, but while I could only get through 40+ seconds of this, I remember that a lot of the BeeGees music also came from the
1970's as well as some fantastic R&B music which I still play today. There was a LOT to choose from - and a lot to ignore. ;)

She is absolutely fantastic, Keith! A multi-instrumentalist, and in 2019 she was only 13 years old! What a talented young
lady! LOVED this, as well as her version of Orange Blossom Special. I've spent quite a while now watching more of her
youtubes. Appreciated.

Do Millie Meunier and her friends (The people playing Foggy Mountain Breakdown) work in an automobile paint shop as their day jobs? They all have paint spray on their pants.

I am star struck by the young Molly Tuttle--here she is playing her signature piece, Towns Van Zandt's White Freightliner Blues with Tommy Emmanuel.
Hope this is an appropriate place to share.
This is certainly some hot pickin'.

And the original, for comparison.

In case your screen is small and you couldn't see - her 'friends' are all actually her, Ed (the kind of stuff our own Beau Kim
does with video 'magic').  She's a multi-instrumentalist.
It must make it tough when one is playing Live onstage though, lol. And she was doing this kind of stuff at 13-15!
The girl is good. I wonder if she'd be interested in chromatic harmonica?  At the very least she'd be a heck of an
accompanist! ;D

Thank you so much, Keith. Missed you guys (and girls). :) Trying to squeeze some time for myself in here and there -

I'm more familiar with the Johnnie Rivers version, but this one ain't bad either.
and yes, that's the first time I heard an upright bass thump like a Fender Jazz ;D ;D

Oh! They're so good! Thank you for posting this link. I now have a new home-town group to follow (I spent years
living in Brooklyn when I first came to the US). :)
