Do you remember any of the others on their "Everything's Archie" album after Sugar Sugar? I do, i listened to it every Saturday for about 13 years...LOL Deep down, I think the reason my dad cherished it and played it so much was because it was the first "gift" my mother gave him when they were dating. :')

Family wedding this past weekend. My mom's not doing so good but it's a great reminder of what's important.

Oh, absolutely. I should have gotten a ticket one day, but I think the trooper appreciated that song (that was still playing when he walked up to the car).
He did suggest that I listen to less "stimulating" music in the future.

I watched the movie again about a week ago and still enjoyed it greatly. And the actors were SO much younger even though it was made in 1979 - Sheen particularly but also the guys just starting like Fishburne.and Harrison Ford - only six years after American Graffiti and before his second Star Wars appearance.

I must say that although I appreciate Wagner, my favourite album is a Telarc CD called 'Wagner without Words. A German libretto adds nothing for someone that doesn't speak that language.

Doing some music list maintenance tonight. Came across this Boz Scaggs gem a year or so ago - never knew it existed. I classified it as the greatest musical "non-apology" ever written - perhaps some would consider it a bit egotistical and they should. It brought me back to an earlier time in my married life when I was working hard to establish my career and I was using that as an excuse to play hard also.

I never intended to be ignorant or uncaring, but ultimately, I was. Could have screwed up the best thing that ever happened to me, but fortunately she stuck with me.
