Dick Clark, "Thank YOU"

I saw this on Facebook and I had to think… “how will we bring in the New Year without Dick Clark?
Well played Mayans! It was rather funny once I got past that thought,
since their wheel did not go past 2012 and the icon and our memory holder, magic maker of music and legend
Dick Clark has died!
A man who brought so many to the lights and record sales over the moon, then went on to rock around New Years Eve in homes and Times Square for 38 years
now dances in the lights on the other side!
Leaving some of us to wonder,
how we will see in the New Year without Dick Clark?
I cannot imagine it yet; it sure will take some getting used to.
I’ve been so involved in such great memories since his death
of all the music, the memories flooding my senses; the dances, the sounds, the times of just singing and not realizing the family was watching back when!
I’ve watched the you tube videos and laughed at the styles, the dresses and suits, the “swag” of those then.
Looking at the artists of the time;
Prince and his shyness, Aretha and her thinness yet her humility before fame, of Michael Jackson as a young and wee one, of Lionel Richie and that afro and his pure voice!
Buddy Holly and his rock, Madonna and her beginnings of wild!
Dick Clark started Patti Labelle and so many others. And we all know that was a time when there was clear cut lines to separate colors, yet this was a man who did not see color; he looked for talent and heard MUSIC, the Universal beat and sound of MUSIC.
He was the first to bring the Music, through the people together!
Oh we should all be thanking
Dick Clark for a life well lived, as we all grew and reaped great benefits in our own lives as a result of him, we all became better because of him through the power of music!
Did he reap rewards becuase of it?
Of course he did, and well he should have, he worked his whole life,
and I am glad he was blessed fully by that work!
Oh I would have loved to see his Flinstone home in California,
what an awesome place for him to live and love and how outrageous
a view!
Now about the ball dropping on Times Square… Perhaps he loved Ryan Seacrest, and has groomed him well for taking over this magnificent job. It does seem that Ryan may be the one to take that on as he has grown leaps and bounds for a young man in the entertainment world; with what appears to be a body filled with energy, so far free of negatives, appears to be genuine in his approach to others, likable, and one who is headed for a full life of success.
His love of Dick Clark is apparent;
his road appears to be wide open to the future of entertainment as he stays busy, stays focused and driven, and is incredibly well connected to great stardom.
He does wear a fashionable suit and tie, reminiscent of Dick and has a handsome grin, nice teeth, and beautiful head of hair!
So it just may be there is a new generation that reminds us of all that might be another icon in the making…
But there will never ever be another
Dick Clark!
I hope for Ryan Seacrest a most successful New Years Rockin Eve
and I have no doubt it will be one that is painful for him, as he rises to it with Dick’s memory, with his energy and with the strength to do him proud as he takes over
and honors him.
I wish him the best in his career as the bar has been set high by a man of greatness who has done so much for so many along the way,
and the great voices have all checked in with their love and gratitude since his death.
I certainly have enjoyed the dance down memory lane as I remember, as I dance once again, and can’t help but reflect on the music, the beat, the wonderment of all that greatness.
thank you ABC
for all the years and all that you have done for all of us
along the way.
Remember bloopers and practical jokes? LOL
Let the music and dance play on.
My prayers and thoughts with all the family, the friends, and with all of us
as we dance on remembering
American Bandstand and the man behind the mic and the one who sat with the kids, bringing it all into our homes so long ago, and then went on to showing us how to rock in the New Year from Times Square as the ageless teenager to a man who after a stroke came back and still showed us how to continue to live with courage and abilities right up until the moment he died.
Chubby Checker; remember? LET’S TWIST~
James Brown and that footwork;
Aretha and that voice;
Frankie Avalon, James Darrin, Paul Revere and The Raiders, PATTI LABELLE, Little Stevie Wonder, Ike and Tina Turner, Jackie Wilson, Smokey Robinson, Jerry Lee Lewis …
Oh the list goes on and on!
I’m not dancin in the street,
I’m sittin here dancing in my seat!
Ok, a reader asked for this today,
a video on Dick!
Of course that was after receiving an email from her that just made me laugh and spit water on the computer!
As many know, I am rather bad at checking emails (as my assistant reminds me quite often), and I had let this particular reader know that in the past in an email I think that may have begin, “forgive the delay, my assistant lets me know that I’m often delayed/bad at checking on emails…”
So yesterday, when receiving a request on a video I also received an email letting me know that this reader has been holding something in and just couldn’t hold it a moment longer!
It read: “YOU are right, Your assistant needs a raise, you are bad about answering emails, now I have said it I feel better!!! Followed by a series of “LOLOLOL”
I got so tickled I spit water all over the screen!
So folks, just keep those emails coming!
Thanks for calling me out Osh, I will do better, (I’m on Indian time)
but I do answer all!
So, in closing
I wish you all a day
MUSIC, GRatitude, Great moments, and
DANCE, SING, and do NOT worry if anyone is watching … or listening!
So then,
“Thank YOU Dick Clark”
This is for YOU!
And those who asked that I keep it real on the videos, and for Osh, here’s one for you and for Dick!
Get your hairbrush, rat tail comb, paper towel roll, lint rollers ready,
let’s do it for Dick
and ourselves today!

Hope you will visit keepin it real with Dr Sherry on the you tube channel and share it with your peeps, click "like on them" to spread the word if you have the inclination/time! Enjoy and thanks for being here!

  36. It's MY turn to ask:" where IS everybody ? "It's gloomy Saturday

  37. This is not MY blog spot—I just reap the benefits of it. So excuse the length of this Dr. Sherry—(just be merciful toward me on my exuberance). Here Goes: “And we’ll rock and roll and stroll on American Bandstand (bandstand)–Lindy hop, and slop, it’s American–Tune in, “SHE’S ON, Turn on, “SHE’S” in, “SHE’S” ON —- Todaaaaaay (bandstand)!!! Thanks for answering my request for a video. (I will deal with the OTHER ISSUE shortly).

    I remember as a kid, that American Bandstand was used as a motivator by my dad who was a REAL farmer. “REAL” meaning wheat farming, soy beans, cotton, peanuts, rye, vetch, alfalfa hay, barley, and on and on. Pigs, cows, chickens, and on and on. Back then, I was the oldest, so I got the honor (ha) of the most work. There was not as much use of chemicals back then for that Johnson Grass that would overtake all the crops if not dealt with. I was 10 when my mom was taken in an auto accident, and my dad was left to raise me and my sister. He finally hired a precious woman for a housekeeper and cook to relieve me of some of my work, but ONE THING that I was NEVER relieved of was the HOE!!!! That’s that thing that we used to dig up the Johnson Grass, (I swear the roots went all the way to you know where, and my dad wanted the roots dug out—As I remember it went something like this: “I’m gonna check these rows, and that grass better be out by the roots or else you can forget American Bandstand this week”!! Talk about the dirt flying when the grass was being dug up BY THE ROOTS! Back then we didn’t even “THINK” to be disrespectful with any “LIP” cause I swear my dad could hear my thoughts. I can remember walkin “with him” to check the rows (with my hoe on my shoulder–just in case) BECAUSE I WAS NOT GOING TO MISS AMERICAN BANDSTAND, OR SOUL TRAIN–WAS NOT GONNA HAPPEN!!!!! I remember borrowing some eggs from a neighbor to put with those our chickens laid, cause if them hens didn’t lay at least as many as the day before…well, I musta broke some and wasn’t tellin! AMERICAN BANDSTAND AND SOUL TRAIN GOT ME THROUGH THOSE YEARS. The music, and the moves I did required full attention and concentration, and it had to be right!!!

    As far as that “follower” of Dr. Sherry’s who had the nerve to mention her “SPEEDY” replies to her e-mails……..well, INDIAN TIME is no excuse…….I think that lady in question who was so brazen has been blessed with some Indian blood as well–AND she is only accepting that excuse—I mean reason—(LOL) because she knows Dr. Sherry pours her life into helping people with all phases of life, and that requires lots of energy. DIGGIN OUT “ROOTS” and issues of life can be a chore, soooo that lady who said all that, needs to cut Dr. Sherry some slack!!!! Unless, of course, we have to have this conversation again!

    • well, well well>>> how i loved hearing the stories of AMERICAN BANDSTAND… and those stories of a row well “hoed”… does that mean you loved or liked the video??? LOL
      the nerve indeed about the emails can u even imagine? ROTF here… diggin out roots, plantin seeds, cultivating and being sure that blooms are sprouting, while nurturing and watering and weeding out doubt, providing light…. ohhh my, imagine

      back when a “coke” was a coke, and “crak” was what u did when u make a joke, and a “hoe” was a hoe… reminds me of a song

      I too miss back then!

      DANCE DARLIN, and stay blessed, that Dad of yours sounds like one fine man, and a Veteran I betcha! and YOU my dear are ‘FIERCE” dance on…. I do love to read what you have to say… “Lawd have mercy” Mama Patti, talk on! Your garden is growing beautifully thanks to the teaching of your Daddy, Mom and that precious woman….

      • Yes, he was a WW II vet. YES, YES, THE VIDEO WAS EXCELLENT!!!! You have called to mind some of the things I had forgotten—namely the hoola hoop—-lol Thanks for doing that for me, and I know lots of other people enjoyed it too.

      • Thanks to your Dad for his service! and happy you enjoyed the video… wondering if the hula hoop will debut at the Motown part next Saturday as all at your gathering get their groove on and shake their tail feathers !!! haha

  38. […] Dick Clark, “Thank YOU” (drses.wordpress.com) […]

  39. Thanks for the link, Sherry! And I agree that Dick Clark was a huge asset to this nation. I never think about the color of people’s skin thanks to pioneers like him who used their influence to do what was right.

  40. Watched the remaining minutes of the bubble master tribute to Dick.You must have had MAJOR coffee today, (lol, just kidding)Dr. Sherry, you are a one-of-a-kindNow, seriously: I went to high school with a pair of "special" twins who were OBSESSED with Dick Clark. Discovery Health did a special on them and a local Tampa Radio Station DJ arranged for them to fly to California to meet Dick Clark. If any of you saw this special or heard of it, let me know……. RIP Dick….

  41. W A I T !!!!! only got 2 minutes into your video and was dancing, swinging and howling to YOU, Dr. SES, you effin NUT ! Thanks for brining me to my feet and joy to my heart, a big smile to my face, remembering Dick Clark and Barry Manilow's voice just-a-singin' his heart out. Roar, howl, snort ….As I turn the pages of my 2012 calendar, I just KNOW we will not see New Year's eve or next year.Mayans rock and so Dick Clark exited stage left right on time.Have a wonderful weekend, make each day count, cause the END IS NEAR !!!!!! Eat cake, don't stay FIRM
