John theme

Last night on A Mixed Bag with Chris B, on 93.7 Edge FM, our theme was "John".  The program was more of a music program, rather than a program with information and an interview.  It's nice to take a break from that sometimes.
Rather than play all the obvious "John", "Johnny" and "Jack" songs, our playlist contained quite a few songs with "John", "Johnnie" or "Jack" in the lyrics, rather than in the title of the song.  The playlist also included some singers with the name John.  Songs included in the playlist were:-

  • It's my party - Lesley Gore
  • Don't take the girl - Tim McGraw
  • Elton John - Tiny Dancer
  • Johnny strikes up the band - Warren Zevon
  • Drag Race Johnny - Little Pattie
  • Come on Eileen - Dexie's Midnight Runners
  • New Kid in Town - The Eagles
  • Walk of Life - Dire Straits
  • Oh No John! No John! - The Red Army Choir
  • The Devil went down to Georgia - The Charlie Daniel's band
  • The Leader of the pack - The Shangrilas (woops! that was Jimmy not Johnny!!)
  • Jumpin' Jack Flash - The Rolling Stones
  • Johnny Loves me - Shelley Fabares
  • New York State of Mind - Johnny Matthis
  • John Paul Young - Yesterday's Hero
  • Uncle John's Band - The Grateful Dead
  • Hummingbird - Jeff St John
  • Bed of Roses - Bon Jovi
  • Do ya ken John Peel
  • Be Good Johnny - Men at Work
  • Johnny Will - Pat Boone
  • Zebra - John Butler
  • Cry, Cry, Cry - Johnny Cash
  • Other songs from Johnny Matthis to finish with.
Next week our theme will be Singers who are happy and gay!
