Song #1

At huntington and malibu
They’re shooting the pier
At rincon they’re walking the nose

 

Song #2

Whenever he calls my name
So slow, sweet and plain
I feel, yeah, yeah,
well I feel that burning flame

 

Song #3

The tides roll by and waves of love
Will sweep into your hear
If that’s the way it’s meant to be
We’ll never, never part

 

Song #4

Is it a matter of pride, riding waves so high?
Seems to touch the sky
Waves that rock and sway
Ooh, takes my breath away

 

Song #5

Oh Lord, I got to raise a fuss,
Lord I got to raise a holler
About a workin’ all summer just to try to earn a dollar

 

Song #6

That’s when I had most of my fun
back High, high, high, high there
Them summer days,
those summer days

Song #7

All summer long
we spent groovin’ in the sand
Everybody kept on playin’
Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

 

Song #8

It’s a groovy day,
you’re a groovy girl,
throw your cares away,
it’s a groovy world

 

Song #9

But at night it’s a different world
Go out and find a girl
Come-on come-on and dance all night
Despite the heat it’ll be alright

• December 4, 2012 • Comments (7)

In case you haven’t heard, The Midtown Men will be in Jersey City this weekend rocking St. Peter’s Performing Arts Center!  Come on out and listen to some great 60’s music, with a few Christmas favorites thrown in to get us all in the Holiday Spirit.  The only thing better than listening to  “All Alone On Christmas” on your iPod or the radio?  Hearing the MEN sing it live and in person, of course! 

In the spirit of the season, and in keeping with the charitable efforts already put forth by St. Peter’s (portions of ticket sales donated to NJ Hurricane Sandy relief, and discount tickets offered on Groupon) and The Midtown Men (all proceeds from 2012 downloads of “All Alone On Christmas” will go to the Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy relief,) The Midtown Club is offering two pair of tickets to Saturday night’s show! 

Share one of your favorite things about the holiday season (favorite song, holiday memory, etc.) and you will be eligible to win 2 tickets to see The Midtown Men at St. Peter’s PAC this Saturday night, December 8th at 8:00.  Be sure to share here on the Club site (comment) and on the Facebook page.  Good luck!

(Winning tickets will be available at Will Call and a photo ID must be presented at time of pick up.)

Answers to Patriotic 60s Quiz

• July 8, 2012 • Comments (0)

In honor of the Birthday of our Country, The Midtown Club offered this “patriotic” take on a 60s music quiz!

Congratulations to our winners – Sally B., Sharon W., Tricia B., Debra S., Kim C. and Carol T.!  They were all able to fill in the correct lyrics (see below) to these patriotic songs from the 1960s.

 

This song was the #1 hit in the U.S. for five weeks in 1966 and sold over nine million records:

100 men will test today,
but only three
 win THE GREEN BERET

 

 

This 1963 single written by Leiber & Stoller peaked at #25:

ONLY IN AMERICA
Can a kid without a cent
Get a break and maybe grow up to be President

 

 

This folk rock song, released in late 1968, was a major American hit :

Can you tell me where he’s gone?
I thought I saw him walk up over the hill,
With ABRAHAM MARTIN AND JOHN

This patriotic song was written about two companions searching for the true meaning of America in the 1960s:

Counting the cars
On the New Jersey Turnpike
They’ve all come
TO LOOK FOR AMERICA

 

 

This patriotic folk song was penned in 1940, but was brought back to life in the 1960s, when several folk singers recorded their own versions:

As I was walking a ribbon of highway
I saw above me an endless skyway
I saw below me a golden valley
THIS LAND WAS MADE FOR YOU AND ME
