All these Stevie picks make me nervous that I'd better take this right now. 11.02  Stevie Wonder - Sir Duke (1977) I'm taking this on the single, not the album, release date.  And some versi

Time for another all-timer for my theme. This is another absolutely stacked year for me, but I’d be bummed big time if I couldn’t get this on my jukebox playlist. Yo Mama selects:   9.23 - M

Don't know why I've been sitting on this one so long.  Had this and two other songs pegged for this year and this has to be the clear favorite, right?

40.xx It's A Shame - The Spinners (1970)

 

I will claim the B-Side (Together We Can Make Such Sweet Music) for now.

 

I would have strongly considered it if I hadn't used 1970 early on (or if I intended to use free rolls).

1975 was very difficult for me to find Groove that fit (or from an artist I didn't already take) Everything started to sound so Disco-ish, or it was a huge hit in '75 but was released in late '74 (damn rules...)

So after going back and forth between two monsters I choose this:

41.xx Low Rider - War (1975)

Sniped.  :lmao:  

😮

I haven't really done a good job of taking what might be sniped v. what I like the best.  I knew the Steep Canyon Rangers weren't going to be taken, but I just like it more.  :)

Seriously?

I don't think I've ever come across an Enid in the wild

Almost all of the "famous" ones here are dead, so he's got a point.

Enid!

Well then I'm not sure how you've missed them.  Check the bingo parlors and shuffleboard tourneys.  :) 

lol

But seriously, even I knew Enid was a name. Never thought there'd be a song about her, but it is the Barkenaked Ladies after all. Probably about his polite girlfriend with a grandmother name or something. A Veronica hybrid, but cutesy.

Sorry I couldn't take part in this one, y'all. Been a busy month and I was a bit drafted out after the mammoth album draft, but I'll try to power skim through the topic. :lmao: :ph34r:

Good time to post, by the way, because the last shuffle on the DID Album Playlist was nice as hell, though I failed to keep a proper list.

:suds: Cheers, fellow scoundrels.

Back atcha, mang.  :suds:

Yeah, I was thinking Enid might be more of a Southern name, too, but I'm not sure.

It's kind of a pretty name, IMO.

My stepmother's first name is Esther, but she goes by her middle name, Colleen.

But I think I have everyone here beat with my paternal grandmother, Vada Elvira.

I don't know about that. I have a Bertha/Berutita (RIP) grandmother on my mother's side.

I like it.  Some of the names in my tree are Pearl, Mildred, Clyde, Adelay, Leander, Ernest, Lily, Ida, Itasca, Hazel, Lou Ann, Bobby Lee, Zelda, Edison, Francis, Franklin, Harvey, Carl, Hoyle, Irene, Mayo, Grace, Minnie, Martha, etc.  My grandfather on my mom's side had lots of siblings, and most of them went by their nicknames. Some of those names were Bunt, Pud, Big Man, Boy, Buster, Tank, Monk, Nute, and Jack (real name was Finbar).

My grandfather's name was Leander Augustus, but that is no Vada Elvira.

Hazel is one of those used-to-be-old-fashioned names that has had a huge renaissance.  Maybe Enid will, too.  "Mayo" is one I've never heard.  :)

I LOVE "Jack (real name was Finbar)".  

On the nickname front, I have an Uncle Moose.  

My favorite "hillbilly name" experience was when my dad died, and we received flowers signed, "Skeet."   My stepmother said, "What's bad about this is we have two friends named 'Skeet' and I don't know which it is."  My dad was loved by everyone.

I also have a Wanda, if that tilts in my favor, though simey is going to be hard to beat here on sheer volume alone. Mildred, huh? I think that might take the cake.

Sorry I can't add much to this conversation, my family consists almost entirely of the stereotypical mid-Atlantic/New England white people names. I have a cousin named after Dylan Thomas, that's about as interesting as it gets.

Oh, don't make me break out the full list.  I didn't even get to my Uncle Spud.  This isn't a competition.

(Or is it?)

Not the full list! With stories! Definitely not what we're looking for here. 

 (No, it's not. Just trying to keep it going.)

Mildred was my maternal grandmother's sister. They also had a brother named Charles, and another sister who died as an infant named Gladys. I wish I had written down all the southern sayings Mildred (I called her Mildew when I was younger) would say. She was hilarious.
