Thread Name: The JOE OFFER MUSIC THREAD
Subject: The JOE OFFER MUSIC THREAD
An offhanded remark by a stranger inspired this thread!
Recently at an orchestral concert, I was distracted
by two guest whispering between themselves. I overheard one ask "Why are
there so few Joe Offer Music threads?"

I could not get that question out of my mind. I had to agree with the
strangers; there are far too few Joe Offer Music threads! I
decided to do something about it. I wondered & I pondered & I sweated &
I fretted until I knew what to do. I ran posthaste & presented my idea
before the LET'S DO ONE FOR JOE COMMITTEE of FINE MUSIC,
INTERNATIONAL
& all two of us overwhelmingly voted to implement my
plan.

Hence,this is the Joe Offer Music Thread which, purely by
happenstance, has been posted on this day, August 1, the
onset of the Joe Offer Birthmonth!

Now, to part one of the musical involvement; I seek the lyrics of an
obscure song entitled "Happy Birthday to Joe ".
The only lyrics I have are :

"Happy Birthday to Joe
Happy Birthday to Joe
Happy Birthday Joe Offer
Happy Birthday to Joe"

I would greatly appreciate any additional lyrics! I have diligently
searched the net & found nothing!

Part two of the musical involvement:

Part of the original plan of the LDOFJ COMMITTEE of FINE MUSIC,
INTERNATIONAL
was to create a song to honor Joe Offer. We
sought a songwriter, a musician & a singer & found two people brave
enough to undertake such a task! They are Noble Onie,
songwriter & guitarist, and Cary Okie, an Irish tenor with a
powerful baritone voice!

The LDOFJ COMMITTEE of FINE MUSIC, INTERNATIONAL is excited
about the resulting product! We rushed to the Electric TweedyLand
Studio
& recorded it.

Noble Onie's guitar work is somewhat adequate; however, The
Irish tenor Cary Okie will send chills down your spine with his
amazing baritone! Truly, it is an awe inspiring performance!

Of course, such an undertaking is costly & we could not have done it
with out our sponsors.

Funding for this product was provided in part by The National
Endowment for Women Who Spit
, and by a grant from The Random Axe
of God
.

Web Space for the MP3 is enthusiastically, graciously & temporarily
provided by the beloved TWEED, one of the Mudcat Cafe's
foremost and well-respected members, & the MAYOR OF TWEEDSBURG.

Our thanks to all who gave so wonderfully! May we be forever in your
debt!

Without further ado, Click to hear the JOE OFFER
BIRTHMONTH WALTZ
; performed & recorded in honor of the man who
wishes he could do better but always does good enough; the
greatly esteemed and highly lauded JOE OFFER!

HAPPY BIRTHMONTH JOE OFFER!!!

President of the LET'S DO ONE FOR JOE COMMITTEE of FINE MUSIC,
