    I think I have lost counting --- there's Roger Moore (The Saint TV series, also played James Bond); Gregg Allman of the Allman Brothers; Actress Dina Merrill who was widow to Actor Cliff Robertson---and the other musicians mentioned on this site this month! It is beginning to feel like a generation of famous people are passing away. Who's next, I wonder? AnneNR

  17. Same title, different song

    "Let It Ride" - Bachman Turner Overdrive "Let It Ride" - Gordon Lightfoot (It's not a cover and I never heard it. BTW, as I once said, he heard his own obituary on a Toronto radio station as he was driving past, of all places a cemetery, shot into his office and reported he was feeling quite well, and the report of his death had been greatly exaggerated. The man is still writing and performing at 77.
  18. Last week
  19. Happy 45th Anniversary "Go All The Way"

    Actually I didn't know the meaning "Go All The Way" at that time. I thought the meaning was "Climb every mountain" or something.... Very healthy, clean and innocent image!!! Coz the title "I Wanna Be With You" was translated beautifully in Japanese....... "Learn to live for tomorrow" or something Can you believe??? I was misunderstood for many years as clean & innocent band just like The Carpenters!!!! Lol
  20. 20 years of

    The site may be 20, but several members here are in a country celebrating 150 years of Confederation. As i was just looking at the folks online section, I stumbled upon Sterling's 2008 post for a quiz about Canada. The link doesn't work for it anymore, and I was a member then (before I had to leave for some reason) and I recall saying schools taught very little of history except explorers, and I mentioned Jim Carrey Had a boat in our harbor. It would be nice if Bernie or somebody else found it. Happy Birthday to all of us here and up in the \North!
  21. hungryeyes, please let Gord Harris Know I have resided in his city, Hamilton, for 56 of my 58 years.

    Tell him I'm in the area of King St. E. and Sherman. If he says the city has gone down hill, believe him.


  22. Happy 45th Anniversary "Go All The Way"

    A lot of us were lying in our bed with the transistor radio 'way back when... until the teacher found out and called Mom and Dad. For our musical needs, it was CHUM AM, CKOC AM and CHML AM even WBEN in Buffalo.

  25. Happy 45th Anniversary "Go All The Way"

    Thanks for the post, Naeko! GATW remains one of the greatest singles of all time. Eric has said in his live intro to "Overnight Sensation" about how he would have his transistor radio in bed with him in his youth, waiting for his favorite bands to come on. Nine or so years later, that was me with the transistor radio - waiting for GATW or IWBWY to come on, over either WDAD out of Indiana, PA or WCRO out of Johnstown.
  26. Same title, different song

    This version is so much better than the other song. I found it by accident! "Down By the Station" - The Four Preps "Down By The Station" - The Kiboomers" I remember, a station is a building, a train is a mode of transportation. Lack of sleep.
  27. Happy 45th Anniversary "Go All The Way"

    The guests were Joe Namath, NFL football player and tennis champion Billy Jean King, and I missed it because I was in an eighth grade classroom! I had to listen to the song on my tiny radio outside my parents' house. My parents would not have liked that song.
