    Hey Lynda,

    It really feels like you left the robot just hanging there... We never even met them. They overheard your comment, and fortunately, they also speak in Baritone with heavy fuzz and Flanger

    The title track from Steve Young's 1969 album. I wore the hat for you this time, Joko.

    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...

    I couldn't end the week without contributing an xxx9 song. This song has been covered by some of my favorite bands... Mudhoney in 1989 sticks out particularly. Interesting tidbit, Fang, the original artists, broke up temporarily in 1989 because the lead singer went to prison for homicide.

    Default Love on the Rocks.. WHAT!?!?

    Neil Diamond was 39 years old when he had this hit song. No one else had done a s.o who was X9 years old song, so as the host, I felt obliged.

    I also confirmed that I'm still having troubles with YouTube Live. I thought I figured it out live, but when I play it back, I've got to turn everything up to maximum volume to hear anything. Is it my playback, or is it the video?

    When browsing for songs, I remembered how big this song was back in 1999.
    So I gave it a go - Macy Grays "I Try":

    Here in 2019, Sir Richard Starkey turned 79 years old. And he put out a new album. Yay, Ringo!

    The future is unwritten.

    Hallelujah! Ralf & the Viking take us out on a high note... And Ralf with (correct me if I'm wrong) our one and only song created for the "someone in the
    x9'th year of life" category. My Neil Diamond song up there doesn't count because A: I'm the host, and B: You can't hear it.

    So for that, Ralf, congratulations, you have won second prize! Woohooo! By far, you were the best in that category. When you have time, PM me the name (a link wouldn't hurt) of a charity/INGO/patreon/poltician. I'll make a donation of a very modest sum of money on your behalf.

    For the winner, I gotta go with an entry from the Original song category.... I first narrow it down to "earworminess" - how likely does the song stick in someone's head? I love that kind of song; it doesn't just impart an emotion at the time of listening... it continues to do so later. It may take a day or two to find out which songs do that to me,

    For the other second prize winner, I'm going with ME! Yes, this piece, which I haven't performed yet and only have the lyrics for, is a winner. Although I was able to locate some fly-by-night YouTube knockoff who is already stealing the idea! Anyways, here's the lyrics:

    Hi, Joko here.
    This is one of two introductory videos for no one.
    She goes boppity but not bluesy chords. Telephone. Slide.
    I wonder who’s kissing Elsie and me
    Why won’t you let me change since I kissed you?
    She died without his hair, and your teeth live in my
    dreams.
    Someone took him out of my friends
    I’d like some time alone with you before thumpin and bumpin.
    At the top of pools that reflect my shirt, my vest.
    You can take all for a third glass of brandy.
    Hello, my baby. Hello my honey.
    Hello my grease in my eye.
    I spin and saw the Monalisa.
    Weapons designed for a great blow.
    The Warrior women they danced in three types of ukulele.
    Soprano, concert and this is that smell.
    I said it she walked right in, sit right down,
    Baby, the highways call to me.
    Close your eyes and you’ll regret it someday.
    You are my lovely Bertha, no breasts were perter
    I would never cash another song into this endless masquerade.
    I went through such a special relationship.
    Best buddies, true and dear, and they know I need a lover
    In my life, I need young men.
    How can we? How can we promise you this?
    I’ll send you here and now a robot who is
    Programmed to deal with Mac the Knife.
    There’s a tugboat down by the river.
    And I'll just sit and grin.
    The money will.
