Halmark Memories



Multiple demands on my time this week are keeping me from giving all but the briefest intro to today's offerings, so I'll just say that I've selected another pair of songs from the Halmark label. These songs again feature some syntax that doesn't exactly flow, musically speaking, and at least one music bed which should be familiar to frequent song-poem listeners. First up, "Memories":



And the flip side, "Remembering You":

I often wonder what these song-poets must have thought when their records came back, with these out-of-date backings...

I agree. I'm always as intrigued by the people who "commissioned" the song-poems as much as the records themselves. Did people love them just because they had something they wrote? Anyone demand their money back? I'd love to see complaint letters....
