Interesting that you picked up on punk. The Cars Just What i Needed bsasically steals the intro. Also the lyrics of Yummy Yummy Yummy are interesting. Ooh you're such a sweet thing, good enough to eat thing. In case you think that is innocent, take Chewy Chewy. Do it to me, Chewy, chew me out of my mind.

I was exactly  at the age then  those records where aimed  at and of course sailed over my 9  /  10 year old head, I read once that when they were put together the writers would have a real laugh thinking how many double entendres they could throw in there.  From my point of view  have carried them with me from that age and love them all, es 1-2 -3 Red Light which is another one with hidden meaning.

At 74. Might have been a one hit wonder with Lay A Little Lovin' On Me, but very catchy number and always enjoyed it.

I  would have begun on internet around 2000 as well.  First person I ever had an e  mail from was That Boy John who was a member here. Not long after met  Dennis1947  and his lovely wife  who were    out here on  business.   Was amazed one day to get a phone call  from Gator Rouge, who I think old  timers would remember wasn't the most sociable type.  He had a wonderful intellect  did the Gator,  bless his soul.   Have made many friends such as John,  Linda ,    Wayne and quite a few others.   Don't get here as much as in years gone bye  but still seems to  be  a great collection of very knowlegeable  people.

Fool To  Care by Joe Barry sounded so much like Fats Domino he asked his manager when he recorded it.
Joe Henderson sounded like Brook Benton on Snap Your Fingers.
    Barry Young sounded so much like Dean Martin one One Has My Name, a story went around that  Dean had his career scuttled.

Noticed this afternoon that Kate was an author with a book  on her life selling on line. Also some chapters are available to read on line.    Very gifted lady.

Just heard this morning Lorne and so very sad. I used to communicate with her a bit in old days and appreciated her zest and enthusiasm for life, she was like a breath of fresh air,   Go easy Kate.

I note he also produced Robin Ward's Wonderful Summer, which is a record I have always enjoyed.

Remember it well, one of my late wife's favorites . I think Bill Mumy from Lost In Space took one of the main parts.

That would be 1972 for me.  While I do love plenty of music from that year, I probably listen to 1968 - 1971 songs more these days.       Will say though that the earlier songs  don't have the memories attached to them that the songs when I was 14 do.

Thank you for the kind words Lorne.   Yes it has been difficult , doubled by the fact it would have been her birthday this week, right on top of Christmas.

Picked up a Dan Fogelberg Best Of CD a few months ago and thought of Roger.  Must be a few years ago now he passed, , the years  seem to fly by  at turbo  speed past a  certain age.  Time of year  for thinking of people     that have  passed like Roger and Gator Rouge , Wes 50's and   Ron Smith of course.    Must say losing my wife a few months ago and  also  having my own close call last August   has made me very reflective .

From Covid -19 at age of 94.  Our Winter Love was one of the all time most evocative  instrumentals.  With eyes shut you can picture two lovers skating across the ice.

Always enjoyed his work with the Mindbenders  and he had some excellent solo records like 24 Sycamore and  Pamela Pamela.   Yet another lost to cancer.   Thanks for the music !

John Stewart said once it was related to suburban life. A couple have married and been on honeymoon not long before, one morning they stare across breakfast table at each other  and realize their life as a married couple in suburbia is starting for real and it's not going be like a fairy tale of white knights and roses every day of married life.

Just reading the Holland's biography right now.   Fascinating some of the background to the songs esp how Stop In The Name Of Love came to be and the tragic story behind  Nowhere To Run.

If you listen to the single version on You Tube it is gun. Was changed on the edited version to be radio friendly, like Steve Miller Band with the edit of Jetliner .

Good to know there is a ounce  of memory still  there somewhere. Not the only song about clothing they wrote,  also  a  certain little  song about Paul Vance's young daughter and her " Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini  "   Tracy by Cuff Links was another song they wrote.
