Yesterday, my daughter stated that it was sooooo relaxing crocheting "Sitting on a dock by the bay" hearing the waves crash in, and the seagulls overhead, while the kids were crabbing with friends.

Ofcourse, I had to tell here that there was as song with that title. She never heard it.

Lyrics

Sittin' in the mornin' sun
I'll be sittin' when the evenin' comes
Watching the ships roll in
Then I watch 'em roll away again, yeah… Full lyrics

If I listen to this one time it will be with me for a week. If you like this kind of thing. Audio is terrible on this video though.

Besides a bunch of well-known oldies, some that stick in my head are more recent and probably unheard of by most out there. e.g. "Hallucinating Beauty" by Kate Havnevik (Schiller music). Strangest lyrics I have not really figured out despite hearing it dozens of times.

From a now-defunct car dealership in south Los Angeles, ~50+ years ago:

"Dial, Dial, Dial Chevrolet
Two blocks off the Santa Ana Freeway
11980 East Firestone
Dial Chevrolet!"​

No idea why I still remember that darned thing. Must be genetic.

"My bologna has a first name" Oscar Mayer...
I never ate another slice after that jingle

Mike Post was a theme song master.

So was Lalo Shiffren



Or how about Charlie Brown music fame Vince Guarladi and his band doing Ode to Billy Joe?
