"MY NEW PHILOSOPHY!"



Inspired by the ANDREW LIPPA song,
we will feature songs
with a philosophical message.

We want you to help program the show.

Some of my favorites are:

  • John Kander & Fred Ebb's "Yes"
  • Stephen Sondheim's "Everybody Says Don't"
  • Henderson / DeSylva / Brown's "Life Is Just A Bowl Of Cherries"
  • John Lennon & Paul McCartney's "Let It Be"
  • and of course, KRISTIN CHENOWETH'S performance of "My New Philosophy"


    Help me program the show.
    What's your 'philosophical song' suggestion?
    Post it on the
    EVERYTHING OLD IS NEW AGAIN FACEBOOK PAGE

    or email your 'philosophical song' suggestion to me at
    OLDISNEW@EARTHLINK.NET

    Some of the songs that have been suggested so far that we will hear:


  • Listener DARYL GIMMILLARO suggests ROSEMARY CLOONEY'S
    recording of "The Secret of Life"
  • Fellow WBAI Producer JIM FREUND facebooked his request
    for PETE SEEGER'S "Turn, Turn, Turn"
  • Broadway Composer JASON ROBERT BROWN votes for SUSAN EGAN'S recording of "All Things In Time"
  • Singer KAREN MASON facebooked "You'll Never Walk Alone".
    "Makes me cry, then I am better! and.....walk on. Sappy?
    perhaps.,but it does the trick every time!"
  • Listener VICTORIA CORBO writes "Although not my favorite FRANK SINATRA song, would "My Way" work for you? How about MONTY PYTHON'S "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life".
  • Listener GRETA M. HERRON says of "I Wish I Were In Love Again"...".funny
    with a lot of truth"
  • CY COLEMAN Biographer ANDY PROPST supplied us with an abundance of riches. He writes - well there's "Hey Look Me Over" - it's a pretty good personal philosophy..."Colors of My Life" are the philosophies of the Barnums..."When in Rome (I Do as the Romans Do" offers up a philosophy of sorts..."Pass Me By" is sort of cut from the same cloth of "Hey Look Me Over"....and finally, two more very upbeat philosophies "It's Not Where You Start" and "One Brick at a Time"One last one from Cy Coleman - what about "'Never Met a Man"?
  • Lyricist EILEEN SHERMAN posts Hi, there! I have some! How about SONDHEIM'S "I'm Still Here," DOROTHY FIELDS' "Pick Yourself Up" JULE STYNE'S "Some People", FRANK LOESSER'S "Dare to Take a Chance", JOHNNY MERCER'S "Accentuate the Positive", or ALBERTA HUNTER singing Johnny's "Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams" and OF COURSE, MABEL MERCER singing "Always Have An Ace in the Hole". (Yes, Alberta and Mabel are two absolute favorites in our household.)
  • Singer BILLY STRITCH emails his two favorites are "If I Ruled The World" & "Keep Your Sunny Side Up"
  • Singer KENDRA SHANK writes Well, you know one of my favorite songwriting philosophers is ABBEY LINCOLN: "Throw it Away", "Not To Worry", "Down Here Below". Other philosophical songs that come to mind: "You Must Believe in Spring", "Smile", "Pick Yourself Up"," Laughing at Life"
  • Listener TONI LaFEMINA says "my philosophical song - "Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries" - don't make it serious, it is just so mysterious. I think it says a lot in its simplicity.
  • Another Listener writes 1. "Put On Your Sunday Clothes" - HELLO DOLLY
    2. "Tap Your Troubles Away" - MACK & MABEL 3. "Smile" - NAT KING COLE
    4. "Sunny Side Of The Street" - BARBARA COOK 5. "Smoke Rings" - LES PAUL & MARY FORD 6. "Pick Yourself Up" - FRED ASTAIRE 7. "Face The Music And Dance" - FRED ASTAIRE 8. "Wrap Your Troubles In Dreams" - MAXINE SULLIVAN 9. "Pack Up You Sorrows" - PETER, PAUL & MARY 10. "Go Fly A Kite" - BEA WAIN 11. "Dream" - PIED PIPERS 12. "Count ;your Blessings" - ROSEMARY CLOONEY
    Love your show,. GEORGE MUNDORF
  • Singer BARBARA FASANO suggests "If I Had My Druthers".
  • Singer LORI HAFER requests "Let Him Have The Heartache For Awhile"
  • Listener THE MISS O' SHOW facebooked FRED ASTAIRE'S take on "By Myself"
  • Listener MARIA FRIEDMAN'S glorious recording of "Now and Then" when my shuffle stumbles on this song it simply stops me in my tracks and life's journey of love and loss echo's in my heart and soul.
  • Listener PETER OHSIEK from NYC. I know suggested two Disney songs, but for some reason these two really speak to me. Ha!!!! "Just Around the Riverbend" from POCAHONTAS Sometimes when you're not sure of your path, other forces can guide you. And, for the most part, you always have choices. Never settle. You're worth more than that. And "Let It Go" from FROZEN. I know this song is like two minutes old, but I recently dealt with kind of a big betrayal from someone whom I had considered a great friend. He treated me a certain way and spread lies about me. It bothered me and bothered me until one day I was walking through Times Square and this song popped on my iPod. I really "heard" the song. It really spoke to me and I realized that I did have to let it go. "Accept the things you cannot change", ya know? My relationship with this person wasn't what I thought it was and you know what, I was going to be perfectly fine, I just had to let it go.
  • Listener CORAL CAPORALE says 2 songs that are a solid foundation for me are "Smile"...'smile though your heart is aching...." and , the tune "When you walk thru a storm, hold your head up high and don't be afraid of the dark...walk on, walk on with hope in your heart and "you'll never walk alone"....in these 2 songs my philosophy is ' la vida pertenese a los valientes"/'life indeed belongs to the brave " ...because God is always part of my heartbeat so I must be "solid as a rock" to borrow yet the line of another beautiful song"
  • Listener NANCY LANG emails "One of the things I love most about the American Songbook is how it abounds in "philosophical songs," mostly of the "can do" variety. I often sing them to myself to propel me forward and/or cheer myself up. I'm sure they do the same for others. Here are some of my "philosophical song" favorites; I'm sure you know dozens more: 1) "It's Not Where You Start But Where You Finish", 2) "Put a Shine on Your Shoes", 3) "Let Yourself Go", 4) "On a Clear Day", 5) "Bein' Green", 6) "If You Wanna Be a Top Banana," 7) "By Myself", 8) "Let Me Sing and I'm Happy", 9) "Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams", 10) "I Gotta Be Me", 11) "Before the Parade Passes By", 12) "Gonna Build A Mountain", 13) "Don't Rain on My Parade", 14) "Yes, I Can", 15) "You're Gonna Hear From Me"
  • Songwriter DENNIS LIVINGSTON wrote I've written a gospel song that fit's the bill: "Puttin' On Some Feathers." from my live recording of a performance at the Metropolitan Room on my CD, "The Stories In My Mind."
  • Listener ROBERT KOMISHANE from Port Townsend, WA writes I have two suggestions. 1. "Why Must The Show Go On", by NOEL COWARD. I greatly admire Mr. Coward's piercing wit, intelligence and common sense in the face of unexamined, often foolish thinking and ways of life exhibited by many 'normal' folks. 2. "Bridges", by BILL STAINES who is a contemporary, more or less 'country' style singer-songwriter. I find his call to build bridges instead of walls in our personal and political relationships to be moving and profound. As I expressed in my previous email, I am a long-time listener and supporter of WBAI, which has made a significant contribution to the quality of my life. I became a BAI Buddy at the time of the 'Survival' show. BAI must, and will, survive, because you all are doing work no other media outlets care or dare to do. As always, thank you, and all your colleagues at WBAI, for your dedication and love. Keep on keeping on re-NEW-ing all of us, young and old alike.
  • Our "Magic Moments" Producer MITCH GALLOB suggests "There’ll Be Some Changes Made" by ETHEL WATERS (or by so many others) "By Myself " by JUDY GARLAND & "Flight" by KAREN AKERS
  • JACK PERRIN recommending MARIA FRIEDMAN glorious recording of "Now and Then" when my shuffle stumbles on this song it simply stops me in my tracks and life's journey of love and loss echo's in my heart and soul.
