Calling Ideas for March 28, 2012
Respect Your Cat DayIn 1384, King Richard 11 of England issued a royal edict condemning the eating of cats.
I don't have any cat-related singing calls. I suppose there's Memory (from the musical Cats), and Rock this Town (by the group Stray Cats), but those are major reaches.
Three Mile Island MeltdownHere's a description of the event: Inside Three Mile Island
How about Neutron Dance?
Reba McEntire's BirthdayHere's Reba's official site.
Songs that I recognize as having singing call versions:
- Before I Met You
- Little Rock
- Take It Back
- Why Haven't I Heard From You
- Wrong Night
There are probably a lot more that I don't recognize, not to mention all the covers she did.
