What is your favourite song from your childhood? - Page 2

post #31 of 49
The first song I remember and that I still like listening to is "I Started a Joke" and the flip side of the single was "New York Mining Disaster 1941" by the Bee Gees. Of course both songs came out in 1967 before I was born but my dad was a big fan of their earlier music before they went to disco.

Of course there is the old standby of "She Loves You", "Yellow Submarine" and "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" .

[b]Mine was "You can ring my bell". My mom was really into the 70's (mind you I was a kid in the 80s) and I had a BeeGee's record player complete with a strobe light and a microphone. I also loved "I will survive" by Gloria Gaynor. ME TOO!!!! I use to play ring my bell over and over at the juke box, people would yell out not again....lol
Oh the good old days... ava

This was from Girl Scouts Camp:

"Chocolate Chip Cookies,
I gotta have more,
You can bake them in the oven,
Or buy them at the store,
But whatever you do,
Have them waiting at the door,
And I'll love them forever more, boom boom boom!"

One Tin Soldier by Coven, another one hit wonder. It was from the "Billy Jack" movies. Does anyone else remember those?

I know what song you are talking about. My brother likes that too.

I have several songs I remember liking when I was little. But ones that I remember most are "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" by Judy Garland, "Daddy's Hands (country music song by Holly Dunn - special song for me and my Daddy), "Islands in the Stream" by Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton, and all songs from the movie Dirty Dancing. I used to dance all of the dances in the movie with the bedpost, and from what I've been told, I did them all correctly. I do remember some of that, like doing the "lift" (the big move at the end). I don't know how many of you are familiar with it, but DO NOT do that move with the bedpost. It can be painful!

My favortie song in grade school was "I love rock and Roll" by Joan Jett. I still crank it... My first 45's included "You don't bring me flowers", "Ruby Tuesday" "Anticipation" "Heartache tonight" and "ABC".
But I remember we used to sing "Elvira" on the bus, as well as "On top of Old Smokey" (or spaghetti, whichever mood we were in) and:
Glory, glory, halleluja,
teacher hit me with a ruler,
So I blew her through the door
with my loaded 44,
and a teacher ain't a teacher anymore!
Or:
I see Shannon,
floatin down the Delaware,
chewing on her underwear
Couldn't afford another pair
10 days later, got eaten by a polar bear,
wonder how the polar bear died?
Or:
I'm bringin home me baby bumblebee,
won't my mommy be so proud of me,
I'm bringing home my baby bumblebee...
Uh-oh! It stung me!
I'm smushin up my baby bumblebee,
won't my mommy be so proud of me.....
and so on....
Man, we were weird!

As a child, my favorite songs were the ones my mom sang with me. I especially liked the 5 Little Ducks song.

Five little ducks went out to play
Over the hills and far away
Mother duck said "Quack quack, quack quack"
And four little ducks came running back...and so on and so forth

and I liked "Over in the Meadow"

Over in the meadow in the sand in the sun
Lived an old mother turtle and her little turtle one
"Dig" said the mother
"I dig" said the son
So they dug and were glad in the sand in the sun

and so on and so forth

As I entered my teenage years, I pretty much fell in love with New Wave and still listen to it endlessly.

there isn't one song that I could say stands out. I don't recall any of the kiddie songs with fondness. as a child I would listen to whatever my parents listened too. My dad was a huge fan of The Animals, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Santana and he would love to play his music and dance around with my and my sis. he'd hold our hands and we'd stand on his feet while he'd dance around. Till this day I still love the music he and my mom played. Every now and again I'll hear a song that I had completely forgotten about and it just puts a smile on my face.

I loved "Little Bunny Foo Foo"

Little bunny foo foo hopping throught the forest,
scooping up the field mice and bashing them on the head
Dooooown came the good fairy and she said,
little bunny foo foo I don't wanna see you
scooping up the field mice and bashing them on the head
if you don't stop I'll turn you into a goon!

I warned you and: poof!

she turned him into a goon

The moral of this story? Hare today goon tomorrow

Of course this is accompanied by hand motions & my former step-daughter used to love this, she'd make me do it like 5 times in a row

My mom loved Meat loaf and we would listen to him all the time, I remember always singing "Paradise by the dashboard light" (I think thats the right name)....

I remember my favorite part was....

"I got to know right now, do you love me? will you love me forever? do you need me? will you never leave me, will me make me so happy for the rest of my life, will you take me away will you make me your wife ...I got to know right, will you love me forever........" (sorry I really like that song!)

I would sing this song all the time when I was elementary school..lol I guess I know why I like rock music so much now....

I just thought of that one! My niece and nephew loved it and how I would stretch the word "good" out! Hand motions are required!
