THE ELM TREASON NEWSLETTER NUMBER 64

JULY 8, 2022

ELM TREASON LATEST

This week, Elm Treason’s very own Bobby Steel – the Music-Meister, the Fret-Slayer, the Drum King, co-founder and avocado connoisseur – celebrates his birthday (Sunday, July 9th).

Let’s everyone wish Mr. Steel a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BOBBY!

– AN UPDATE –  Andy’s daughter, Chantelle, and her husband, Michael – for those who did not know – had their first child (Oliver Michael Ribisi) on Friday, July 1st at 3:59am in Seguin, Texas

Your Input: ASKING QUESTIONS

Sometimes songs can ask questions. (Often times, they supply no answers — and why should they?)

For this week’s “YOUR INPUT” offering, name your favorite song (or two) that asks a question in the title.

Some examples include:

– “Have You Ever Seen the Rain? ” (Creedence Clearwater Revival)

– “Do You Wanna Touch Me? ” (Joan Jett and the Blackhearts)

– “Where Did Our Love Go?” (The Supremes)

Whatcha got, people?

Hit that comments section…hard! It’s all yours! Have fun with it!

Happy Birthday Bobby, Live long and Rock On! Congratulations to you Chantelle, Michael, & Grandpa Andy; On the Beautiful new born. May peace be with everyone of you always. 🙂

Daniel

Happy Birthday Bobby! 😁✌️

Laura

For the question….is you or ain’t you my baby? 🙂 And happy birthday, Bobby!

Bill Boys

A scathing answer to Paul McCartney’s “Too Many People’” is John Lennon’s “How Do You Sleep.” I love songs with emotion, even if it’s anger, and you can taste the anger in this song.
Happy Birthday Bobby and, again, congrats to Andy and family. Nothing like being a Grand.

Bill Boys

I love the arrangement too. The lyrics are among John’s best and then you are not disappointed because the music is as good as the lyrics. And like you said the music is nasty and dark and in your face like the lyrics

Happy birthday (too many will kill you), Congrats on the grandchild (SiL related to Giovanni?), and in answer to the Credence question, rain on a sunny day, according to an old wive’s tale, means the devil is spanking his wife. (No idea on the origin of that one.)

David Nelson

And a song title question I’ve asked my wife is, “If I said you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me?”

David

Congratulations on the grandchild you look like a happy Grandpa, happy birthday to you Bobby, I have grandchild number seven on the way any day now. Never realized how much Jennifer Aniston and Iggy Pop resemble one another LMAO

Thanks everyone for the Birthday wishes. It means a lot to me. Congratulations to my brother Andy on the birth of his first grandson (and my great-nephew)Grandma Amy and to Chantelle & Michael on the birth of their son, Oliver. He’s a beautiful baby, and I can’t wait to meet him.

As for a song that asks a question i have Where’s My Thing? by Rush (of course).

Happy birthday Bobby and congratulations on becoming a father! Two of my favourite songs that are questions in the title is Moody Blues ‘Question’ (not in the title but lots in the song) and the Bellamy Brothers ‘If I Said You Had Beautiful Body (Would You Hold it Against Me).

David

Hey I know it’s not Friday but this just popped into my head a question for you being a child from the 60s, well that’s me anyway, who is the first band you saw using wireless microphones and sending units for their electric guitars and such?
