Doo Dah Band and Death Cab for Cutie

Dang. You can teach an old dog new tricks. 

I was in the car with Teddy Bear and Mr. Guitar Player (who really plays the guitar well) driving home from dinner. The song "I Will Possess Your Heart" came on by Death Cab for Cutie. 

Okay, what kind of name is Death Cab for Cutie and how on earth did they come up with that. Mr Guitar Player knew exactly where the name came from....The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band from the 1960s. They did a song called "Death Cab for Cutie" produced by Paul McCartney no less. 


I swear I think I was sleepwalking through the 1960s and 1970s. Teddy Bear knows the music from that era better than I do. Well, she knows the bands and who's who, but the songs bring back vivid memories. Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon...well, I'm sure the memories are good but I was either drunk or stoned and so they are rather vague. 

Tomorrow is my dad's birthday, so I will be down in San Diego playing with the family. Maybe we will hear the Mexican version of the doo-dah band...

I confess to having a Death Cab for Cutie album but had been unaware of the origin of the name. Makes me like them even more. Enjoy the birthday celebrations.

I've never heard of either song or artist before, so I had to go listen. I have to admit that I've never heard a musical introduction to a song quite as long as that one! LOL 4:40 seconds before the first work even. Normally, I'd get bored and give up, but I looked up the song, read the lyrics and figured I'd listen all the way through. Interesting songs. :)

Have fun celebrating your dad's birthday!

Interesting back story on Death Cab's name! I love their song. Thanks for sharing the videos!

Madame...Thanks to my daughter, my music selection on iTunes is definitely eccentric, but I love Death Cab for Cutie. And Modest Mouse. But I still have trouble with the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs. I just loved finding out about their name.

Judy...I know I should probably have picked up the radio edit version of the song but I love the whole thing, so I couldn't resist. My dad's birthday was a blast, thanks.

Savannah...I have a feeling partying with you would be memorable. We should see if we can get Jimmy Bastard to join us one day~!

Mac...It is probably the only time that I got a direct answer for the name of a band and I loved that it sent me off on a quest!

Aunt Juicebox...Thanks, that was a fabulous song.

Phoenix...Life is trying to kick my butt lately and my running muscles are squawking in protest. Love your Friday poems by the way~!

Ethelmaepotter...Death Cab are great aren't they? I had fun researching the Doo Dah band and their song but I had to post the video of Death Cab.

Kelly and Sara...Welcome~! I will definitely check out your blog.

Tgoette...Glad you enjoyed the videos. It was a lot of fun looking all that stuff up.

I've heard a little bit of DCFC and quite like their music. Wish your dad happy birthday from me and have a nice bash. Many thanks for your comments on my latest post about feminism. It was most welcome.

Greetings from London.

Jai Joshi said...

Have fun in San Diego.

I'm terrible when it comes to remembering names of bands and songs so I know what you mean. I know what I like when I hear it but I don't always remember it beforehand unless it's one of those unforgettable tracks. I prefer to concentrate on the music itself and forget about the ego on the artist.

That is, unless where talking about George Harrison because that guy rocked my world. He's one of those unforgettables.
