Another interesting post. Sorry I haven't been around, but back problems have been keeping me mostly down. Can't sit at the computer long enough to watch all of your videos. Will come back when I'm feeling better. I still have to visit all of the other, wonderful MTM posters, too!

Thanks Travis.....I sang "Is this the way to Amarillo" in my dreams last night. Have been singing it for 24 hours now. Please put something else up so I can erase my memory! lol

Well... I've jumped on the bandwagon. My Town Mondays are also now featured at www.jasonscottadams.com.

And...

Thanks for all the good memories about my place of birth, Amarillo. I'd forgotten about the crazy road signs.

But Lord knows I'll never forget the king of Panhandle country - George Strait.

I like the second song the best. Very catchy! Plus, I know you have that same suit in your closet. Come on, you can admit it. We're all friends here! :D

Don't forget to add my sister (surviving life as me) to your list of those participating!! :)

2008-03-24T19:08:00.000-05:00

What a great post, I can confirm as Debs has already done so that the second one with Peter Kay (The greatest comedian in Great Britain!!) was a huge hit, they seem to be able to find a different sing along song to murder every year, this one hung about for ages. Once its in your brain, thats it! I also knew the original Tony Christie one, but sadly not the country one. Great post though!
I feel cheated becasue there has to my knowledge never been a song imortalising the beauty of Welwyn Garden City!!!!

I have to say Amarillo by Morning is my favorite of the three. It's a great dancing song.

2008-03-24T16:18:00.000-05:00

I never did quite understand the attraction of singers who just sing other folks songs. I mean, sometimes they can do a song justice, but it's always good to see them do their own music as well. I used to dislike country music soundly, but I've mellowed toward it as I've gotten older.

2008-03-24T15:24:00.000-05:00

I love country music.

My My Town Monday entry is up. Very short this week.

Patti: I too have tried to figure out how our MT host MT's on Sunday and make it look like Monday. I tried to change the date to no avail.

TE: I'm back at again with a post on New Rochelle's founding father, Jacob Leisler - the former governor of NY and an upstart who was exectuted for his rebel ways: http://josephinedamian.blogspot.com/2008/03/my-town-monday-forget-it-jake-its-new.html

Debbie that video is available on You Tube and I nearly posted it instead. They are British soldiers and supposedly got in a lot of trouble for making that.

Sorry Travis, I can't do country music, but the post is great! I'm having a late start with my Monday post. Am working on it right now and will get back to you!

2008-03-24T09:22:00.000-05:00

There was a cute video a few years back circulating on the web (or at least thru e-mails) called "On My Way to Armyrillo" and featured troops in Iraq. It was really cute and I wish I had it to share. Maybe someone has it online somewhere???

Hi Travis,

I didn't know John Rich wrote Amarillo Sky. I have a couple of Big and Rich CDs. Like them a lot.

Over at women of mystery, Lois just put up a MTM post called Diversions.

I have to admit I was familiar with none of the Amarillo songs. Thanks. Much fun.

Oo-- can I play! I posted my first My Town Michigan at www.bofexler.blogspot.com. It's about Livingston County Michigan.

This is neat, Travis.

Very nice touch with the videos!

I posted on the Kansas City Barbeque. Of Top Gun fame. :)

2008-03-24T04:05:00.000-05:00

Travis - When I first saw your post - my first thought was of the Tony christie song - I had never heard of the other ones - but very nice.

I must admit ( sorry Holly) that when I do hear the Comic relief one ( with one of my favourite comedians Peter Kay) - I am one of those people that will get up and do the strange march - where ever I am ( if I'm taken as a hostage- you won't keep me alive very long as - I'll drive you mad humming it continuosly!)

Some years ago when the song was popular we were at an airport waiting for a flight - my son who was about 9 at the time heard an announcement for Amariilo in Spain. With no hesitation he went up to the uniformed air crew and started singing "Is this the way to Amarillo??" complete with dance actions. He got a round of applause from everyone in the terminal - the madness must run in the family. For a while I did have the song on my playlist on my Blog - but after a while it started to drive me crazzzzzzzzzzzzyy !!

2008-03-24T02:13:00.000-05:00

The Tony Christie cover is the only one of the three I've heard, and you're right, it was a big hit in Germany. Turn on an oldies station and wait patiently; you'll hear it.

2008-03-23T23:19:00.000-05:00

Terrie - I remember your comment and I know the song. It was written by John Rich of Big & Rich fame. He is an Amarillo boy who graduated high school with my wife, but I' ruing a future My Town Monday post so that is all I'm gonna say for now.

2008-03-23T22:58:00.000-05:00

Hi Travis,

Great Music! I might be a city girl but I like some country when I can get it!

A couple of months back I commented on your post http://traviserwin.blogspot.com/2008/01/anal-banal.html

which had a picture of the Amarillo Sky that I like Jason Aldean's version of "Amarillo Sky."

Perhaps the next time you are in a musical mood . . .

BTW, Patti Abbott has her MTM post up.

2008-03-23T21:24:00.000-05:00

Amarillo by Morning has always been a favorite of mine. It brings back memories of cold beer, dancing till dawn and trying make it to work (in Amarillo) after a long night of parties!! Thanks for the memories, Travis.
