  1. Two Words: Rollerskating Girls

    Simply the best version of this song I've ever seen.... uh.... meant to say ".....I've ever heard" Yeah, that's what I meant.... I guess.... I think......
  2. 1976 DEMOS

    Just got on and saw this post - WOW! These rule, times ten! Thank you for sharing 'em! Cheers!
  3. Classic Tracks: “All By Myself”

    I could read stories like this all day....
  4. "I Wanna Be With You". The GREATEST Power-Pop song ever written (but "My Sharona" comes pretty darn close!).
  5. Mines always been and always will be "Change of Heart". It feels like I have known the song forever but, years ago, when my first serious girlfriend and I split up I was at work and the local radio station was playing a few of EC's tunes in honour of his birthday that day. This was one of the songs played and it was the first time I truly payed attention to the lyrics and suddenly everything clicked. Years later we got back together again ("sooner or later, I don't know when... " you know the rest) and it was fun while it lasted but it didn't last forever. Oh well.....
  6. Thank you Santa B & Santa H

    I third this emotion! Cheers! :-)

  9. Now this is what I'm talking about! Thank you for sharing this gem!
  10. Raspberries Refreshed?

    Mine as well but I also have to add Dave's "Somebody Like You" to the mix.
  11. What song was #1 when you were born?

    On December 14th, 1969 the #1 song was "Leaving On a Jet Plane" by Peter, Paul & Mary My sister, who was born exactly one year after me got "Tears of a Clown" by Smokey Robinson & The Miracles. Ah well, some girls get all the luck....
  12. Thank You Santa Bernie !

    Three cheers for Bernie!
  13. Is Eric Going To R&R HOF Ceremony

    I'm hoping the official after-party will be at House of Blues again this year as we've hosted it the last two times that the induction ceremonies were in Cleveland. Eric and Jim attended the party and seeing Jim discussing drums with Lars Ulrich (Metallica) up in the Foundation Room was priceless. Even better was walking Eric to his party of friends that he couldn't locate and as we were talking he told me "I know who you are, you're the guy with that crazy purple hat!" I would have happily worked "off the clock" for the rest of the night. Ahh, the memories.
  14. And Another One...

    "and should-have-been hits (“Change Of Heart”)" This, my friends, is the gospel right here!
  15. Best Buy only has it available on their website. I work for them and checked our inventory systems to see if any of our stores in the Cleveland area had it and none of them did. Don't hold your breath for Wal Mart or Target to carry it either as they pretty much carry the "Top 100" and we're following them down that path as well.... If there's anybody in the Cleveland area that is still looking for it I found mine at "The Exchange" (formerly known as "The Record Exchange") for $16.99. I know that Record Den in Mentor will be carrying it as well (the last of the truly great RECORD stores out there). Good luck!
