First Lines - XIX

March 14, 2019  •  4 Comments

Here's the 19th edition of First Lines.  The caption is the first line of a popular R&R song.  Have a guess in the comments.  I'll hold all comments for a day or two so you don't see correct, or incorrect, attempts.  I think this one will stump quite a few.  At first I thought it was too obscure but then just a few days ago I heard it on the radio.

Wow! Excellent! Definitely works in black and white.

Perfect composition Joe. The clouds look like ethereal leaves of a ghostly tree. Or perhaps an aura. In any case, it makes for a powerful shot.

I knew it was Thursday so I stayed near my desk at 11 am. But I swung mightily and struck out this week. I think its from one of those songs that is on the Time Life song compilation commercials for the 1960's.

They always have old pop stars like Davy Jones from the Monkees host it. I can't place it other than to say it was not a prolific group and from someone who was either a one-hit wonder or only had a hit or two. The song they around it that on the commercial is "Going to the Country" by Canned Heat.

Interesting photo - where was it taken? What time of day?
