My Ding-A-Ling

Yes indeedy!  It’s time for Motivational Music Monday from Jamesy over at 50 in 50 Marathon Quest. Everyone is free to play, so please head on over to his site (even if it’s not Monday no mo’) and tell him a song that makes you happy.  (You should go check it out anyway… he got new running shoes and I photo-bombed his picture… but he paid me back because he bloody well posted it!) :O

Anyway, James posted a song that was originally recorded in 1972, which was then re-mixed last year to include the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.  It’s really cool to put headphones on and listen to it.  So, as the original recording took place in 1972, the song I’ve chosen is the one song that kept it out of the #1 spot for a week way back when.  Yes, believe it or not, My Ding-A-Ling was #1 on the U.S. charts in 1972, as well as in the UK, Ireland, and Canada.  And yes, believe it or not, this song really IS on one or two of my running playlists.

FYI, this was the only #1 song for Chuck Berry.

Chuck Berry, My Ding-A-Ling

In other news… on Sunday, I met up with Judy from Chocolate Runs Judy.  She was visiting the Seattle area for the weekend, so we went and snatched her up and took her to lunch and to the mall!  It was pouring of rain that day, so there wasn’t much else we could do (and stay dry), but we had great fun!  What a wonderful person she is… I felt like we were long lost friends!  #lifeisgreat #bloggersunite

Hope you’ve had a wonderful Monday and were able to start the week off with a smile!

    Hi Paula. Even though our tastes seem to be quite similar, I absolutely hate that Chuck Berry song… So I’ll not be clicking on it I’m afraid – sorry ! 😦
    Looks like you had a great time with Judy. If we’re ever over in your area (which you never know we may well do one day), I’ll be sure to look you guys up. 🙂

      Lol, it’s okay about the song Mike! You either like it or hate it, and I get why people don’t like it, :D. Yes, absolutely, if you’re in our part of the world, do let us know! We’d love to meet you!! We actually are meeting another couple of bloggers in June when we run RNR! They’re coming to run the race, so that’ll be great fun!! 😀

    Thanks again for lunch & picking me up (and not killing me, LOL!). It was a loooong trip back home but went quite smoothly and do the TSA Pre thing — wasn’t much help in our airport, but definitely shortened the wait in Seattle (although it still wasn’t that bad, thankfully).

    And I still have no clue how I ended up on the list.Lloyd said sometimes they just do it for frequent flyers (he used to be one), but i definitely am not, considering the last time I’d flown anywhere was feb 2015!

      You are so welcome! It was our pleasure!! I did think of you at about 7 pm and thought, geez, Judy’s not even home yet! Glad it worked with the pre-flight… anything to make the trip shorter, regardless how you got on the list, lol! We’ll definitely have to do it again in the future!! 😀

    Wow. That song name sounds wrong. Need to listen to it though to appreciate it a little better 🙂
    And you two look cute! Looks like a good outing, but sorry about the rain.
    Need to get a song on James’ post tomorrow! Too late for me tonight, now. Beddy-bye-time.

    So I was a bit nervous reading that title lol….but it all makes sense. I’d never heard that song before. It’s a lot cleaner than what I’d expected as well lol
