Don't Wanna Say Goodbye

Recommended Posts

This year's end Dutch Radio 2 (most popular station of the country) will be playing the All time Top 2000 again. This year the listners can't vote for their favorite songs, because it's the 10th year in a row that they will be playing the list they will put all the 10 year lists together, so I think the Raspberries will end this year at number:

1290 Don't Want To Say Goodbye Raspberries with 5726 points!

Hey, nice compilation there (although there are a few acts I admit I don't know: 4, 5, 7, 13, 19). But among those I do know, "Don't Wanna Say Goodbye" is easily the best of the bunch.

It's amazing how beloved that song is over there, Wim --- some 37 years after it came out as the 'berries' first single! Must be that piano and the harmonies....

I'M WONDERING, IS THIS THE SONG THAT SAYS, "JUST LIKE A FOOL..." AT THE END OF THE VERSES?

I JUST RECENTLY GOT THE ALBUM WITH THOSE LYRICS IN IT BUT HAVEN'T FAMILIARIZED MYSELF WITH SOME OF THE TITLES OF THE SONGS AND THE LYRICS THAT GO WITH THEM.

THAT'S ONE SONG ON THE DEFINTIVE COLLECTION THAT I'M REALLY LIKING, AND ACTUALLY HAVE IT STUCK IN MY HEAD RIGHT NOW. :)

It's always interesting to see which songs resonate overseas... I think EC has stated that one of the more obscure ballads... maybe not even "singled" in the states... is one of the all time great hits in the Philippines... (Correct me if I'm wrong... :lol: )

We have a population of 16,5 million people and over 11 million listeners to the yearly Radio 2 Top 2000, so over 11 million Dutch people do know : 'Don't Wanna Say Goodbye', so I think more Dutch people than American people do know that song, that's quite unbelievable, isn't it?

Never mind--I found out today what song I was thinking of("Never Gonna Fall In Love Again"), and it's "just like you and me...".

I also love "Boat Against the Current"--beautiful song and lyrics! :)

Read this reaction on you tube:

This is way more complex to play than most Beatles songs plus it 5 minutes long Eric Carmon is a Briliant composer

and is certainly on the same level as the Beatles...without a doubt!
