didn’t i blow your mind

I barely noticed NKOTB (new kids on the block) back in their prime. I thought I should start a new group call OGWB (old guys with blockage). Getting dressing up in funky colored outfits would be the big draw. Maybe we could even try coordinated movements.

The NKOTB covered the Delfonics' (great band name don’t you think?) song “Didn’t I Blow Your Mind This Time”. I only know this because I found a clip of NKOTB singing it on youtube. Here’s the original guys singing it.

Anyone interested in recording, “Didn’t I Blow Your Pension Check This Time”? 

How about “The First Time Ever I Forgot Your Face”?

The retirement center tour would be a big hit for the OGWB. I don’t expect OGWB would become heartthrobs like NKOTB. A heartthrob takes on a new meaning for old guys. You need to stop and check it more often to see if it is still throbbing in there.

I just don’t know. Maybe the band name Hotplay would be catchier. OMG, naming ideas this good apparent don’t just come to Lisleman. Look at what I found recorded in Sydney.

Confusion never stops, closing walls and ticking clocks

My ex used to say that when he got old he'd form a band in the nursing home caleld, "Old White Rockers."

It would not surprise me if such a band existed. Rocking takes on a different meaning with age. thanks

I did it. I wrote the song and it's on my blog
I sure hope it doesn't suck.

This whole post made me laugh, but I really think you're on to something! There's a great group in the Houston area called The Grateful Geezers. They're awesome!

lisleman said...

I checked out your song. I like the lyrics. Any plans to set it to music?

I see you added your blog address to your disqus profile.

Wow if The Grateful Geezers and the Old Guys With Blockage had a battle of the bands they would need extra oxygen tanks and ambulances. thanks

Well my mind is totally blown. I had that song on the B side of my NKOTB tape back in 89. 24 years later and i never knew that was a cover.

lisleman said...

There are more covers than fans realize. Recently I was researching an artist (forgot which one) and discovered the first big hit of his/her song was a cover and when he/she released it everyone thought the songwriter was singing a cover. It's fun to pass info like this through the blog. thanks
