I Must Have a Dirty Mind

I must just have a dirty mind. I was looking up a song from 1977 and started noticing the song titles from that year. Does anyone else notice a theme here?

Tonight’s the Night
Do you want to make love?
I’m in you
Don’t stop
Way Down
On and On
Nobody Does it Better
Undercover Angel
So into you
Feels like the First Time
Keep it Comin’ Love
Give a Little Bit

Today's a slow day for me, so I'll throw in a few photo posts just so you don't feel too cheated. I've got a bunch of ideas for posts, just very few written yet. I usually keep about a dozen ahead but Belize used up a lot of my pre-mades.


Though bicycle bowling is fun, the auto and cycle repairs do tend to add up. I doubt it will make it as an Olympic sport...

Little did anyone know that the country and state borders were lined with Kraft Macaroni and Cheese sauce and visible from space...

And you thought YOUR job was bad...

Great photos! My love song came out the following year in 1978: imaginary lover

VE said...

kan - Too funny. You crack me up...

Kurt said...

Don't forget Queen's "Get Down Make Love." Doesn't get any more literal than that.

VE said...

kurt - I that that was about limbo and valentine card making...I'm shocked now!!!!

RED MOJO said...

Wow, that bike crash - Horrible! That arm-pit smelling job - Worse!

Jacki said...

Oh my gosh...that bike crash looks awful! But the song titles might explain why there are a lot of people around that are my age. Hmm...I'll have to ask my parents what their favorite song of 1977 was.

EmmaK said...

ha ha...how do you know those male pheremones aren't turning those old birds on??

VE said...

red mojo - That was actually a bike race/ride in Mexico that a drunk driver crashed into. Quite terrible indeed...

jacki - Yes...just pick out your birth song...ha ha

emmak - I think they are. Look at their expressions. They're so kinky...

iamnot said...

Damn!
I hate when I get beaten to the punch.
I was gonna say, you have to wait till '78 to get my theme song.
Imaginary Lover, ARS

Damn Kanrei

lime said...

that last one....it could only be made worse if it were 12 and 13 yr old boy armpits you are sniffing. there is a uniquely vile pungence to boys that age. of course if you were doing such a thing it would be illegal i think. or earn you comparisons to michael jackson

Kanrei said...

Sorry AMNOT,

I have always loved that song for the simple reason that so many people miss what it is really about...myself included for many many years.

Turning Japanese is a very close second for the same reason.

Serena Joy said...

I remember fondly 1977's music. They titled those songs as they did for a reason, you know. LOL. Conversely, those pictures scare me.:)

leelee said...

It seems to be a 70's themed summer...

I loved "growing up 70's"

Keeeeep it comin' love keeeeep it comin' up..don't stop it now, don't stop it no

oh yeah baby!

Have a great weekend..

HUGS!!

leelee said...

OMG that arm pit smelling job...

how gross! look at those guys...not that hot guys pits smell any better but still..

Megan said...

Hm, I wonder if this has any bearing on the fact that my younger brother and sister are only 16 months apart.

Jeff said...

Those women aren't smelling armpits, they're installing new right arms.

C said...

Great photos! That last one....GAH! So glad that's not my job!!

Oh, and you're right about all the songs from the 70's having a bow chica wow wow theme to them! Speaking of which, I caught a bit of that new show, "Swingtown" and I think I like the songs played on the show better than the show itself!

Nessa said...

Stinky pits.

Bee said...

I don't know. Sometimes I think I would be taking a step up if I became and armpit sniffer.

Bee said...

Before you say it! Don't offer your services!

Lori said...

Dirty mind or it is time for the weekly lovin'??

Your list of songs reminded me of a post back in Feb. '05 where I used top 40 hits from the 60's in a very short story (3 or 4 paragraphs) - I hid the complete titles within the text and challenged the readers to find and name them.

You might want to try this yourself using more current songs. Most of my titles, even though they were from the sixties - the decade of one-hit wonders - would be easily recognized by most people.

If you are interested, here is a link to the "story." The second link is the answers.

The two previous deleted comments were because I screwed up the links - twice.

VE said...

iamnot - Kan was fast off the mark today but I'm sure he'll loan you his imaginary lover.

lime - Yeah, my 11 year old alreayd has that hideous odor; particularly his shoes/feet.

kan - Is it like Harry the Rabbit in "Trouble with Harry"?

sj - Yes, you know I couldn't resist some scary photos for ya

leelee - Yes, I seem to keep going back to there; a great source of blog fodder...

megan - On and on!

jeff - Oh, they're like the 6 million dollar men. Looks like they cost less though...

c - Swingtown? Is that where swingers go?

nessa - I beg your pardon...I deodorized today!

bee - Doh! You ruined all my fun!

lori - Weekly? I've got a girlfriend, not a wife!

hale - I'll check that out; looks like fun

Annie Ha said...

I am Megans younger sister & before I read her comment I was wondering if this music might be why I was conceived despite the use of 3 forms of birth control...

VE said...

annie ha - Wow, you're just hard to stop, aren't you?

Alan said...

Nice blog, thanks for mentioning my song "Undercover Angel"! Yes, the era of innuendos yielded a lot of controversy. My hit was actually banned in Peoria, and many people thought it was about the "M" word. It wasn't, but they were close! Thirty one years later, my new CD (available soon at alanoday.com, plug plug) shows a little more maturity. But not too much...

VE said...

alan - Wow, that's actually your song? I remember when it came out. I really never expected anyone to actually read my blog other than my crazy blog followers. Considering I'm notorious for making fun of my own era of songs, it's a testiment that yours has never been picked on by me! ha ha. Thanks for reading and that'll be interesting to see what has changed in your style over that long of a gap. I'll check it out.

Quickroute said...

Armpit smelling - yikes! I hope it's a winter job and not summer.

VE said...

quickroute - You mean right after a nice long day of skiing, right?! ha ha

Anndi said...

You know, my Great-Aunt Philippa met Great-Uncle Howard when she worked as a smeller. How dare you make fun! ;)

VE said...

anndi - They say those that should be together will have a smell attraction that is chemical. Of course, when I internet dated, I rarely sniffed their armpits on a first date!

Yes, my name is Arizona said...

I am a crazy VE blog follower....I am a crazy VE blog follower....I am a crazy VE blog follower......

but at least I'm not a crazy armpit sniffer....I love the smell of ARMPIT in the morning! (said like Robert Duvall in Apocalypse Now....)

VE said...

arizona - Ha ha. See, it's like saying "There's no place like home", isn't it? You know, napalm might just be made from armpit juice...

Bonnie the Boss said...

There are no words for the last pic. TOO funny.

VE said...

bonnie - How could I resist using that picture on my blog somewhere!

Alan said...

Hey VE (& fans),
I have no email address on you, so I'm posting this...
Sept 15th is the release date of my new CD as an artist I wrote to you about, "I HEAR VOICES". There will be links to audio clips and purchase info on my website, http://alanoday.com, starting this coming Monday (check out the title song, and "Guide Me"!). And would you please help me spread the word?
Thanks so much,

Alan "Undercover Angel" O'Day
