Under the Boardwalk

Haven't a clue why this song showed up today. Maybe feeling wistful about love, but certainly not in that New Relationship Energy way. Maybe I need a trip to Santa Cruz?

Sentimental Lady, Redux

Last in my head on September 24, 2009. This episode of sentimental infection came after a really good dose of 70's mellow gold on the radio in my car the other day. In one short drive, I managed to hear Whenever I Call You Friend by Kenny Loggins and Stevie Nicks, Jim Croce's I Got a Name (a great driving tune!) and Wild World by Cat Stevens. Loving the new Bay Area oldies station, though I take umbrage with their classification of 80's music as "oldies" (don't get me started).

Artist: Bob Welch
Year: 1972/1977

To Love Somebody

Artist: Nina Simone
Year: 1969
Rating: Hot!

Note: I actually didn't know that this song was a Barry/Robin Gibb composition!
