Subject: Song Challenge: Help, anyone?

Written By: HawkTheSlayer on 11/18/07 at 5:01 am

I have a bet going with one of my Karaoke patrons:

This marks a 41 yr. Anniversary for them.
I have been challenged with finding a song for them- they call it "their song".
If I am successful, I will gain $20.

If not, I owe them.

I have 2 weeks to complete this challenge.

While the artist isn't known, I have the following statistics:

-The song is Country.
-This song was released in 1965-66.
-Suspected title: Open For Business (During the Reconstruction Of My Heart)
-This song was very popular in 1966.

Anyone willing to help save me from embarrassment and debt? ;D

Does Brigitte at least get 10% if she's right or does she just have to be satisfied with her good deed?  ???

No, this doesn't look right.

I was told specifically that the words "Open for business during the reconstruction of my heart" are in the song.

I've checked the lyrics for this one, and they're not there.
Good thought, though.

Bobby Rydell has a song called Open For Business As Usual-  I find links for the lyrics but they keep taking me elsewhere so I can't get the lyrics.

The era is right- tho I wouldn't call Bobby Rydell country...

Is it possible the song is from an earlier time and your friends just heard it for the first time in 66?

I would pay the $20 just to find out at this point!

Guess what...? Somebody just found it for me.

I've posted Wayne's question on another board that I visit quite frequently, and I finally got a reply....Here's what it said:
(Note: people still know me as FaultyDog over there)


Hi Faulty......I have been away for a while and have just come back online today....Hope I'm not to late to help you win your bet.....
AKA "De Maste vs Sagen Och Gladjen"  This was the first of his early "read the signs" songs.  After the Sinatras did "Something Stupid", Frank had this tune arranged, but woke up with a bad back, and cancelled the session.  A lot of people have done this tune, but it has never come out as a single.

Open for Business as Usual
Written by C. Carson Parks

Chorus
I'm gonna be open for business as usual
During the reconstruction of my heart.
The management regrets the fact
The place has been so torn apart.
So please excuse the inconvenience
If I sigh a lot,
I'm gonna be open for business as usual in my heart.

Verse 1
So you say my mind is always wanderin'
And you say my eyes are sometimes longin'
There are things I remember, before the parting of the ways,
But it will all be over one of these days, (and)

(Repeat chorus)

Verse 2
Were you ever hit when you weren't lookin'
Hang suspended there 'tween life and death
The way she said goodbye has really knocked me off my feet
But i'll be alright, just let me catch my breath.

Verse 3
Days may come when all your hopes go under
And the things you planned are not to be
But you can't close up shop or love will never find you home
And I am gonna make it, wait and see.

(Repeat chorus)
