I get all weepy and shit over the soundtrack to "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang". Don't know what it is, but I can't go a month without a listen. Go through one of those travel-packs of Kleenex every time! That Dick Van Dyke really could belt-em-out, he could. Sometimes I follow that up with some Burl Ives doing Puff the Magic Dragon on the ol' CloseN'Play and the flood-gates just bust open. I only do that on weekends cause I know I'll be useless the next day.
Duane, On one occasion, Lisa, (my better half) overheard one of the classic lines from that album. I wish I could of videotaped her facial expression at the moment that FZ recites:
"But one night Mary didn't show up! She was sucking @#*& backstage at the armory in order to get a free pass to see some big rock group for free".
Green Hill Productions smooth jazz remakes. Sam Levine, Jack Jezzro, and others create some extraordinary elevator music together. The music police seem to frown on this type of activity, but I don't think it is actually illegal. At least I hope not.

Being both a confirmed car nut and lover of "oldies" music; one of my favorite pleasures is taking my Corvette out for a drive with the top off and the CD player blasting out some of my favorite tunes.
In particular I really love the soundtrack from "Grease" -
"You're The One", early Elvis and the Four Tops.
Not quite ditties, but my brother made (well, I think he made) a CD a few years back of 60's TV theme songs entitled "Soundtrack From A Wasted Youth". If you'd like a copy pm me...
Nothing can tune an air guitar like Surfin' Bird / The Trashmen, though Dirt Track Date / Southern Culture on the Skids definitely runs with the big dawgs!!!
Flying Lizards? Geez, been awhile....
