It wasn't a purchase,  Sonja.  My friend gave it to me as a gift!  ;D


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

One morning recently when my alarm went off, the radio station was playing "99 Lead balloons." I couldn't hit the snooze button fast enough. ...

 :laugh:

This isn't news per se, but I've experienced a weird phenomenon. Whenever a famous music artist dies I start thinking of, and listening to, that artist far more than I had previously. When Prince died this was obviously the case, although I'd been a pretty big Prince fan in the 1980s I hadn't thought much about him since then, but then I was at the epicenter of his death and mourning (just this week they renamed the highway by his studio after him). But the same has been true of David Crosby. There's a lot of CSN that I had just heard way too many times (their eponymous album was one of my first albums). But there are a couple of their songs that I hadn't overlistened to ... until now! Now I've listened to them over and over!

Here's one of them. I've listened to it so many times I've probably posted it here already!

Ever since Gordon Lightfoot passed away, I've been singing "Sundown" to myself daily.

I've had a few Gordon Lightfoot earworms, too! My mom was a fan, so I know all the words to many of his early songs. Not so much "Edmund Fitzgerald" -- that one got kind of old during my five years in Duluth, the city adjoining Superior, Wis., where the EF started its ill-fated journey. Used to love "If You Could Read My Mind," though.
