Featured Song Story *
The song Tammy was recorded by Debby Reynolds in 1957. It earned her a Gold Record and was the number one best-selling single by a female vocalist that year. It was written by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans, and sung by the character of Tammy played by Debbie Reynolds in the 1957 movie Tammy and the Bachelor, starring Debbie Reynolds and Leslie Nielsen. The song was number one on Billboard’s pop charts for five weeks and remained a top 40 hit song for 23 weeks and was even nominated for a “Best Song” Academy Award in 1957. This beautiful song is sung in a mix of first and third person as the movie character Tammy sings to herself and about herself saying “Tammy’s in love” and first person lyrics “My Heart beats so joyfully.” Debby Reynolds, born Mary Frances Reynolds, died December 28, 2016, one day after the death of her daughter Carrie Fisher.

British shoegaze band Ride released their first new song in over 20 years, "Charm Assault." Despite the song's dreamy tone, singer Andy Bell said its eeriness reflects "a pretty straightforward expression of frustration and disgust at the people who currently run our country."
"Charm Assault" opens with a barrage of downbeats before

Girls Name Songs BlogMy thoughts and comments*
What is so special about a Girls Name Song? Who writes such a song and why? These are songs written about a friend, mother, sister, daughter, wife, girlfriend or any girl or woman we care about. Someone cared enough about this girl to write a song about her.
Is there anything more important than music written about a key person in our life; a person we admire, love, despise or cherish? Sure, some of these songs are just plain fun. But usually they are written about real people and real strong feelings. Listen to Steve Perry singing Oh Sherrie.
I first became interested in this kind of song as a young teenager. I remember feeling the unrequited love when Paul Anka sang about his yearning for Diana in 1957. And I remember the heart-break sadness of Ray Peterson in 1960 who sang Tell Laura I Love Her
And just like when we read a book, watch a movie, or listen to a story, these songs touch our hearts. We can easily relate to the words and feelings of the song; we feel the love. We smile, sigh, and cry right along with the singer.
I hope you enjoy this list of songs and please feel free to email me with suggestions for songs I missed or corrections to anything I post.
