The death of Davy Jones prompted me to rummage through my old 45's and LPs. Here's a sample of what I rediscovered:

These songs really take me back to when I was a kid, being driven around in my cousin Carol's Mustang while she ran errands. She'd drive to a car wash, and we'd laugh like crazy as the car went through. The father of a friend of hers owned a sandwich shop named 'Yellow Submarine', and we'd get lunch and eat subs at Colt's State Park.


Keep those songs coming :thumb:

For the Janis Ian fans, I would have thought that this song would be the winner http://<iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/yW_rYLoIR08" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Wow. I always thought you were younger than me, but we're probably pretty close based on the tunes in your collection.

I hated a lot of the "Lost 45's" type songs of the 60's and early 70's -- the kind of stuff my sister had in her collection of 45s, but a couple of years ago I put together a playlist of all the stuff that gave me a headache back then and I unveiled it for a bunch of my wife's relatives who were in town during a margarita session on my back deck.

To say they loved it would be an understatement. They sang along at the top of their lungs to practically all of them. I actually forgot to include "Seasons in the Sun", but I had some Cher, Bo Donaldson, Marc Lindsay and the like in there singing "story" songs like Gypsys, Tramps and Thieves, Billy Don't Be a Hero and Cherokee People.

There was some heavy competition for worst song of all time, but I decided that the gem below got my vote. Oddly enough, I liked listening to these things after all those years. They were so bad they were good. It brought me back to simpler times when the world seemed new and filled with possibilities.

The worst of all time:

I offer up a GREAT song ABOUT nostlgia. It's called:

Looking for an Echo

I think this song was from the eighties - I need to check it out it's a bit elusive.

I have it on a Persuasions compilation album.

It is a Nostalgic look back on the doo-wop era. I love this song. This rendition is from the Spike Lee show.

Enjoy.

Lee Michaels actually came to my high school and performed "You Know What I Mean" for some dance team we had. He was a one-man band and sounded great with this big keyboard system and drum machine in the middle of a suburban (Weymouth South) high school gym. I never understood why a guy that was on the radio all the time did that, but I was pretty impressed with what a cool guy he was.

Thanks for the memory. I had forgotten all about that.

We kids would drive my Mom (and the neighbors) crazy singing this repeatedly while swinging on our swing set in the backyard. :)
