Hosta Hit Parade

Let me tell you about an idea.....

First, there is a hosta named the same thing as a song, musical group, or a classical music work.... Moonlight Sonata comes to mind there. Or Sweet Home Chicago.

For starters.....because there IS a post about it right now.

Can you post here all the hosta you have which have songs/music by the same name? And maybe when such a hosta is featured in a thread, and you know who recorded a song, lay the link to it somewhere in its thread?

You can find many of the hosta/song pairs in Don Rawson's Lists. I give the link below.

I never realized I had this many hostas based on songs...

Dance with me
I want to be your partner
Can't you see
The music is just starting
Night is calling
And I am falling
Dance with me

I saw her walkin' on down the line
You know I saw her for the very first time
A pretty little girl standin' all alone
"Hey pretty baby, can I take you home?"
I never saw her, never really saw her

My baby does the hanky panky..

I love the second verse to Cherish .... a lot of people lose Cherish after one season.....

Perish is the word that more than applies
To the hope in my heart each time I realize
That I am not gonna be the one to share your dreams
That I am not gonna be the one to share your schemes
That I am not gonna be the one to share what
Seems to be the life that you could
Cherish as much as I do yours

How about a little Billy Joel:

Lyrics:
She cuts you once, she cuts you twice
But still you believe
The wound is so fresh you can taste the blood
But you don't have strength to leave
You've been bought, you've been sold
You've been locked outside the door
But you stand there pleadin',
With your insides bleedin',
'Cause you deep down want some more
When she says she wants forgiveness
It's such a clever masquerade
She's so good with her stiletto
You don't even see the blade
You don't see the blade

You guys are TOO COOL.....
Too sexy for your genes....

So I think we've always had a latent, buried association with the songs when we are attracted to a particular hosta. It might be our hosta become the symbols we keep for happy times, they are as good as the music, as good as the occasions/events, they bring to mind.

Secret Love by the Bee Gees:

Baby when you got a secret love
Every little touch is not enough
Every little moment we're apart is pain to me
Maybe we can find some hideaway
Everybody knows but who can say
Secretly you know I'd follow
Anywhere to make it happen

Guardian Angel by Abandon All Ships

I'll be there watching from way up high
The shadow you can't see
When the sun's in the sky
Wandering eyes
Have no disguise
It's obvious
That this love never dies
Never dies

I'll be your guardian angel
Your sweet company keep
No matter where I go
I'll make sure you're all I see

Gypsy Rose by Tony Orlando

And bells on her toes

Independence by The Band Perry

(Chorus)I gotta get gone, gone, gone.
Shootin' like a gun, a gun, a gun.
Skippin like a stone, stone, stone
Far as I can run to where freedom is free.
There's a road like a long grey ribbon far as I can see.
And it's pullin independence outta me.

Rainbow's End by Judy Garland

Sing for your supper
Bewitch with a smile
All the rates and a stage for the while
You can make it through
One more old soft shoe
And a taught song or two
Wanting you turn back late
Cry all our tears
Chase all fears away
Cause a singer goes on singing
Like a song is her best friend
And music is the rainbow's end

Revolution by the Beatles

You say you want a revolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
You tell me that it's evolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
But when you talk about destruction
Don't you know that you can count me out
Don't you know it's gonna be all right
All right, all right

So Sweet by Casey James

And I don't know how I got by

Now everything makes sense to me
I never knew that love can be so sweet

St. Elmo's Fire by John Parr

Take me where my future's lyin'

Winter Snow by Chris Tomlin

Could've come like a mighty storm
With all the strength of a hurricane
You could've come like a forest fire
With the power of Heaven in Your flame

But You came like a winter snow
Quiet and soft and slow
Falling from the sky in the night
To the earth below

This is a fun thread though I have to admit that I'm not a huge music fan. There are probably more types of music that I don't like than that I do. I have heard of most of the songs mentioned but not Yellow River (plant of mine shown above). That strikes me as a very weird name for a song!

Oh my!!! I have been through this thread twice already! The music is great, it brought back such wonderful memories. When our girls were in High School, we always had a houseful of teenagers! The music and the kids were great fun..Thanks for the Memories! ( Shades of Bob Hope! An earlier era, but still fun music!)

Rosie, is there a significance to the numbers after your name?
742001 sound like July 4 2001 to me. An anniversary is coming up I bet, a birthday for a baby or grandchild, the date you bought your home......or planted your first hosta?

Anyway, about the link thingy.

Irawon, how neat! But of course you know that many of Don Rawson's lists of hosta names are about music, movies, entertainment, etc. I'll put the link below for others who may wish to browse all the lists that Don keeps.

And if you wish to set up a "theme" garden (Theresa has her Angel Garden) there are lists of zillions of themes. When the name is on your hosta list and on his song list, that sounds like a theme of your very own.
