OMG, Siren! I had no idea what I was going to hear when I clicked on the link. I'd completely forgot about that song - even the title and name of the group didn't ring a bell until I started listening.
Here's another I liked that came up on the related music list on the "Tighter and Tighter" page: Crystal Blue Persuasion by Tommy James and the Shondells. So very smooth.
"Grease" is one of those movies that I can't pass by when channel surfing; I have to stop and watch at least a little bit of it whenever I see it's on. Usually, the song that gets stuck in my head after watching it is "You're the One that I Want". I'm with you, Lola - "Greased Lightning" is my least favorite from the movie.
Right now though, it's "Blurry" by Puddle of Mudd - I wonder why radio stations sometimes glom onto an older song, seemingly out of the blue, and play it at nearly the same time everyday. I've heard this song on the drive home from work almost everyday for the past week.
Blurry was mine and Mary's "first" song. The CD had just come out when we were hooking up and I remember we were trying to figure out what was going on and how we both weren't sure....she said to me, "I can't do this"... and hung up the phone. I laid awake on the couch the rest of the night and then finally went to Wallyworld at like 6AM, bought two of that CD, and mailed one to her on the way back home. I listened to Blurry about 790 times that next day before I finally called her on the phone. Well, you know, the rest is history--literally.
Music is an amazing and powerful tool.
Thanks for posting the link about RJD...especially at PT's. I hadn't heard. Of course, now "Rainbow In The Dark" has been on rewind in my head for two days now....
"There are people you meet, who move in and out of your life, like ghosts-- and after they're gone, you find that they've left a part of themselves with you.
I found myself singing this one today in, of all places, the produce department at the supermarket. Yup, picking out some green onions and singing Toni Braxton. Lol! But what a great song. This is one of my top 5, all-time.
I keep singing......"Under The Boardwalk" - The Drifters
I wanna be like you, Siren. How is it that people other than myself can get good songs stuck in their heads? Not saying what's stuck in my head now is a bad song, necessarily...but I don't like it; it's irritatingly repetitive, was put there a couple of days ago by BP, and keeps cropping up in my mind.
Here's "Willow", aka Willow Smith, 10 year old daughter of Will Smith, singing "Whip My Hair"...over and over and over again.
I've always had an affinity for the big band music like "Moonlight Serenade", but while surfing youtube I found this comment on a page for "A String of Pearls".
"In the 70's I found this record at a flea market, my moms fav song. I got it, & said I had a surprise as I walked to the record player. She demanded to know what it was. I said its a surprise, she said if its " String Of Pearls" don't play it. I didnt. She said, I just cant listen to it. I NEVER saw her listen to it. When I hear the song today, I wonder what memories it held. So personal, so private.. My dad? An event? Or just the best time of ones life forever gone. Oh, the power of music!"
