Crankenhurst Challenge 1-5


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
1.
I was standin' all alone, at the train station in Crankenhurst
I had just finished my lunch, roast beef and liverwurst
Well, I looked out my window
And I'll tell you what I saw first
(In Crankenhurst)

2.
There was James Dean in his Spyder and old Brando on his Triumph-T,
I saw Elvis in his Caddy with Marilyn upon his knee;
Well they pulled into the station, came inside and sat right next to me...
How could this be?

3.
there was a nip to the air with a clear blue sky
snow in the gutter but i never asked why
the driveway was so shiny and black
my buddy said come on climb in the back
well i went around the car and my feet went from under
smashed my shoulder on the tarmac
and it frankenhurts!

4.
I said, "Sorry Elvis,
Should I take you to the hospital?"
He said, "Thank ya, thank ya very much,
But our schedule is very full."
Then he said, "Anyone ever mention
That you look like Martin Mull?"

5.
Well, Sinatra left the limo with a bottle of Jack in his hand
And he shooby-doobed and ring-a-dinged his way up to the barbeque stand
They say, "How'd you like your burger today?"
He said, "I'll do it myself and say I did it my way!"

Note: Whoever is next, feel free to cut off the extra bar--I left that in just in case...

Phil...
Thanks so very much--hey, why don't you grab a little of this for yourself while you're at it? I love these kinds of things too because it puts a fire under my behind to actually create my own music for a change. You take care now! Michael

But hold the mustard!
Oh man Smokey, yanno, some years back, I worked for Pillsbury R&D and they owned Burger King at the time. I probably got several hundred dollars worth of free coupons to that chain, but I always wound up giving them away as little gifts (I just won't eat a cheeseburger that costs 99 cents--something just ain't right dere!) Thanks again and thanks for your nifty addition to the collab! Michael

Rockin' Train Station,
...isn't it? Things are HAPPENING in that town now, boy.

Seriously, Michael, this is priceless - that last line was a zinger! Love the arrangement and singing capping off the great verse!!!

So Cool
I had no idea about the challenge, so naturally when the singing started I was a bit confused. What a cool & creative concept. Everyone did so wonderfully - and Moe, your performance was just Bee-U-Tee-Ful. :)

Killing it Mr. K!
Kicking arrangement and sharp vocals. Nice spin on the tale. This thing is happening. I think we need Damiengh to take a solo break soon now that he's about to retire. Air this baby out.

Elv--er, I mean Bud!
That would be great to have Damien come aboard! Say, thanks for the nice words on my section here--you are too kind!

PS: That's what I thought too, about your verse; I've changed the lyric in my intro info to reflect that Bud--thanks!

Jack
And speaking of Jack, I have my own Sinatra story: eons ago in Atlantic City (were I grew up), I used to stop by a little lounge at Resorts International called "The Gold Room". The place was usually empty, and I would get a few free drinks from the bartender for noodling around on the piano. One night, as I was playing, I noticed a bunch of people putting linen, flowers and all kinds of stuff on the tables. When I was finished, the bartender said to me, "Look, you'll have to leave pretty soon because Frank Sinatra is having a party for his wife here tonight, but do you like Jack Daniels?" Of course I answered in the affirmative and at that point, he looked left and right and then ducked under the bar where I hear him tearing open a box. A hand came up with a filled shot glass and placed it in front of me, which I gulped down. Then he stood up and said, "Did you like that?" I said, "Yah, that was smooth!" To which he replied, "It should be, that's Jack Daniels' five star label they only make for certain celebrities--the Sinatra people had it sent down here earlier tonight. Don't tell a soul I gave you any!" So, you see, I actually HAD a drink on Frank Sinatra (well, sort of...) Thanks again Jack, I'm really happy to hear from you!

Yah!
And to be honest Jack, had I only known, I would have sucked it down a bit slower, yanno? But hell, I had half a load on at the time anyway, so...

Thanks Peter!
This was lots of fun and it gave me an excuse to abandon Mr. McPike and create something of my own for a change! Take good care now, Michael
