6. Born to be Wild
7. In-a-Godda-da-Vida

<font face="comic sans ms" color=navy size=4>I'm willing to bet that we're within two or three years of age from each other.

Would you believe that I still have the full-length version of In-a-Godda-da-Vida? A little bit worse for wear, but then again, I don't have anything to play it on anyway!

Webskipper...I think you are right. Still have a turn table, but very hard to find a needle for this antique. Have my parent's 78 records and my 33's & 45's...or is it my parents 33's and my 78's?

When I was on a destroyer in WESPAC we stopped in Taiwan. I loaded up on 100's of boot-legged records--stowed them away aboard the ship (in the safe) and we returned to USCON...still have them in mint condition. Rarely played.

Again, if this makes any sense--you were there!

"It's [your] Party", I "Cherish" the conversation, it's "Poetry in Motion"! I know I was a "Young Girl" at the time, so don't have any "Midnight Confessions", wasn't "Born to be Wild" and so was never a "Wild Thing". "The Worst that Could Happen" is that you both won't "Stand by Me" and make me "Runaway" on a "Ferry Cross the Mersey". I have "No Where to Run to" except a "Bridge over Troubled Waters". I keep thinking..."Oh Lord, Won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz". but he probably thinks "People are Strange". And now I'll say, "This is the End" (so you both can groan....) Smile!

Sat in a meeting for two hours, after that the fifteen minutes I spent working that up for you two was a great stress reliever! If it made you laugh, that's all that matters...

p.s. Good going...44 weeks!!!

Have one thing to say, "OUTSTANDING." That was great...I remember when the radio stations would tell the story and insert the songs throughout....thanks for the memories.

Bill, I don't remember anything like that in this area at the time, but it must be where the idea came from...

And should share with you that I love music...all kinds...and the CD's in my office are from a wide range...including 60's/70's music...(and not ALL of the titles came from the CD's, Webskipper...just some of them!) I could probably sing at least the first verse of most of those songs to you from memory...so be glad there's not sound!
