Signs


The prompt that Brenda has given us this week is: "signs". This original 1971 song immediately came to my mind, and I think it is still applicable today. I really cannot improve upon this. So, I give you The Five Man Electrical Band, and "Signs".

  5. I knew someone did it before Tesla, but I couldn't remember who and FMEB didn't turn up in the first few pages of possibilities on YouTube.

  9. I loved it way back then, I love it now. In fact it is one of those chronic earworms that I often find burrowing in the background of my brain. Perfect for this prompt!

  11. I recognized the song but I didn't remember the group who sang it. All that came to mind was Sign, sign, everywhere a sign, do this ,don't do that. I hadn't heard that song in a very long time. Thanks for the memory.

  12. Being an old Poop, I had no memory of this song until you posted it and Wow, I was able to sing along. Even knew the words. Isn't it wonderful what I have buried in my old brain. This was fun and a perfect pondering response ...

  14. Mom says she remembers that song well., and that she didn't need to listen. When she sang the line "Do this, don't do that, can't you read the signs?" we were not impressed. We don't like to be bossed around like that. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Lisbeth, Astrid and Calista Josette
