the-theme-is

A group music blog of weekly themes. Each week, the moderator will pick a new theme and the members will post songs that fit, especially rare gems others may have not heard before.

We will call attention to forgotten gems and songs that have stood the test of time!

(We wish to stand out from the other blogs out there with this collection of rarities.)

My personal favorite semi-version of this song is Hey Memphis by Lavern Baker, which was her answer to this here Elvis song, but I couldn’t find it.
