Sing Along With The Oldies (Lyrics Included)

OK, get ready to sing along with some rock and roll oldies.

Here's the scoop! I've got some time on my hands and hundreds of old songs that I strum on my 12 string and try to sing. I thought I'd challenge myself and see how I might get some of them in some format onto the Internet. That means learning to work with programs (apps) like Roxio, Vimeo, Moovly, Facebook, Twitter, Google, Windows 10 and probably a few others. (They're all an ongoing challenge!)

Over the years I've compiled a book with the words to all these songs (when I'm playing live), so people can sing along if they want. (I know you're not going to be "knocked out" by my voice, so it helps if you can try and drown me out!) So, when I decided to throw these up on the Internet, I also decided to include the words with the songs so that you could do that here as well. (Did I mention that they're in video format?)

So, here's what I think is going to happen. I'll compile these videos using some of my programs and when they're ready, I'll post them on the Social Media sites as well as here (one at a time). If you've signed up for RSS notices already, you'll get notified as they are added. If you haven't done that already, you can do that in the box below. If you're already on my email list, you'll likely get notified through an email when a song is released.

This page will likely change as I progress through this challenge but for now, this will have to do.

In fact, here's a change already: I'm going to put the most recent singalong song at the top, so the first one I did will now move to the bottom! Hope that makes sense.


Bonus For People Who Have Known Me...

If you have known me in the past, you'll have this bonus while singing along to these songs - the background pictures in the videos will be from my personal collection. So, you may see yourself or someone you know in the video!

Have a look.


Bonus For People Who Don't Know Me...

Send me 2 or 3 of your old photos and maybe I'll use them in the next song! Up until now (50 or more songs in) I have used photos from my past. I try and pick a photo that has some relationship to a line in the song. Sometimes it's easy and sometimes it hard and rather vague, but at least to me, most of them work. The problem now is that I find myself using some of the same photos over and over again, so I could use some new material.

That's where you come in. 

Pick out 2 or 3 snaps from your past and send them to me through the form below and I'll add them to my collection and maybe you'll find yourself or some of your friends and family in one of my singalong videos. You won't likely become famous, but it might be worth a smile!

Send Me 2 Or 3 Old Snapshots

Send me some of your old photos from the past and maybe I'll be able to include them in my singalong videos.

OR

If you're old fashioned (like me), and don't want to fill in forms, then you can just copy this email address onto an email and attach your photos to it: harleyhead44@gmail.com. Just label the email "Singalong Snaps".


How Do I Pick A Picture?

I pick old rock and roll or country songs usually and because I provide the lyrics, I try and flash up a picture for each line of the song. It's difficult, but I try and make each picture "relate" to the line. So for example, if I was doing Elvis Presley's "Hound Dog", I might pick my friend's dog Emma for the first line - "You ain't nothin' but a hound dog".

That's her in the picture and obviously she's not a hound dog, but she is a dog, so she gets the gig!

So, if my warped mind can make a connection between your photo and the line in the song I'm doing, then it may appear in one of my songs. It's that simple.

Click the box above to get me the photos.
