Oh Gawd, there is that song!

Went to local Rx to pick up mom's emphyzema meds. This little 'trip' takes a bit of the cheer out of my spirit. I was pumped about my Vermont Vixen's happy news, and then my reality about my mom kicked in. I put on one of many compilation cd's and it happened to be from the 70's. I was engaged once....(nuff said). But i wore this song out because it spoke of what i felt when i first met her: "Precious love, I give to you, caught in the eyes of a love so true.......(choking up...sorry)....You can count on me, count on my love, baby, you can count on me, you can count on my love" - Jefferson Starship. **just bits of a song that** I still stay in touch...she is happily married..two boys. She is forever filed under "Good Memories", but strange how i can't hear that song without thinking about her. MEMORY=GASMS! ANY SONG DO THAT TO YOU? WHAT WAS IT? ARTIST? SOME OF THE LYRICS THAT SPOKE TO YOU?

For me the song is 'Hold on loosely' by .38 Special. I can now listen to it without tearing up but the memories flood my mind. Sometimes I listen to it over and over, just to remember the happier times.

Only YOu-Platters

Only you can make this change in me.
But it's true, you are my destiny.
When you hold my hand, I understand
The magic that you do.
You're my dream come true,
My one and only you.

Our song, with an old love.

"Don't cry because it's over; smile because it happened."

Dad introduced me to that genre of music. Call it Doo-Wop, R&B, Love Ballads, etc......it tells of a a time when groups had real talent! And the Platters were among dad's favorites....Twilight Time, Red Sails in the Sunset, Only You, etc.....Thanks so much!!

Tad, Daddy used to sing Nat King Cole's songs to me, especially "Good Night Irene", Tennessee Earnie Ford songs "I was waltzing the old . . ."--Daddy was an old Southern, smooth talking, sweet singing man!

I remember all of the old do-wop groups from my early childhood, the "British Invasion" (as they called it--lol) Elvis Presley (now there is a good, Southern Silky voice) Jim Nabors, Tennessee Earnie Ford, Marty Robbins, Roy Orbinson (when I hear his sing "Pretty Woman--I can't help but feeling sexy as all get out--, Conway Twitty also makes me feel like that too with a lot of his songs (lol)
the disco era, Air Supply, The Carpenters, The Cowsills, ABBA, Rod Stewart--then there was all of the music that my daughters listened to when they were growing up (I listened so that I would have a handle on what they were into!).

The last few years besides Josh Grobin and Andre Botticelli there is Sarah Church who has the voice of an angel and Enya! There was also a nice band from VT--Hootie and the Blowfish!

Dog gone you Tad! You have a way of making me write way more than I should here!

Double warm and fuzzy VT Teddy Bear Hugs for you Taddy!

I thought Hootie and the Blowfish were South Carolina boys!? We have many same memories about music, and tastes.I have loaded up recently on doo-wop compilations cd's. The harmonies, falsetto's, and deep bass sound. Street corner sound. I also loved 70's R&B groups! One of my favorites by The Manhattens: "Darling you are my shining star........." **Warm fuzzies as Vixen and Tad curl up together and listen to beautiful** CUDDLE=GASMS!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm with flyaway, every time or event in my life seems to be attached to a song. Most are wonderful memories! I saw your comment on another blog and had to check you out, hope you don't mind! And I'm glad I did. BTW, I too am a great Andrea Boccelli fan. His voice is phenomenal and he seems to be such a wonderful person to boot! (at least in the interviews I've seen)

tadpudgy replies on 8/16/2006 7:55 pm:
Well! Glad you visited today!!!! Just a little bit more sunshine added!!!!!!!!!!!! Mr Bocelli is phenomenal indeed. Saw him featured on 60-Minutes. His is a voice that touches every fiber of ones being. Every day i hear a song that reminds me of something or someone. A song says a lot of what we can't put to words! HUG=GASMS!

The first song I ever slow danced to was Bob Seger's "Turn the Page." I danced it with my bosses' 19 year old son, I was 22. He was doing this thing with his leg where it ended up right next to my crotch. I can't hear that song to this day, over 20 years ago, without becoming aroused from the memories.

MMMMMMMMMMMM, isn't it neat that so simple a memory stays with us always.....especially when you hear that certain song!! HUG=GASMS!!!!
