  1. Today
  2. Thanks Susie. I thought somebody might bring up "Seasons in the Sun" and Terry Jacks under this topic again. That song has taken a beating over the years. But our opinions about everything, including songs/artists, totally change as we age. That has never been made more clear to me than when I read posts on this site. We all have different perspectives depending on what cards we've been dealt in life and again as we age and "wise-up", as I like to think. So a sad song about someone losing a loved one might affect you differently. But here is something I don't think many of you know. "Seasons in the Sun" was pitched to the Beach Boys by Terry Jacks, and here is the 2:44 short audio interview that he gave regarding the song. I think you will find it quite interesting.. (It's only available through Facebook) https://www.facebook.com/share/v/WW1GiEEeVB5gw3Hc/?mibextid=D5vuiz
  3. So sorry to hear of her passing and condolences to you on losing a lovely friend. I know Rhonda knows who that fella in the video is, but for those who don't, that is Susan Jacks' ex- husband, Terry Jacks of Seasons in the Sun fame. I'm sure there are lots of folks who don't care for that song, but it was a part of my childhood. Now that I'm much older, it hits home.

    Forgot to mention that Overdub alumna Jennifer Lee is also in the video singing backup along side of Debi Lewin. Jennifer & Debi have done a number of projects together.

  6. This looks like they had a blast. Wish I was there.

    Uniquely Wally sound on GATW. Amazing. Often imitated, never duplicated. That guitar riff will always have his signature on it.
  8. Hey Batman, I thought Their Coming To Take Me Away played backwards was genius! Bought the 45 when it first came out.
  9. Back in the day I was heavy into the CB radio craze, and enjoyed the Smokey and the Bandit films, so yes, I have the 45 of "Convoy"!

    Bill is also the bassist for Beau Coup. Wally made a guest appearance at the Beau Coup reunion concert a few years ago. You will also see Paul Sidoti on guitar, drummer Don Krueger & saxophonist Paul Wolf Christiensen, all of whom have worked with EC, as well as cousin Dennis Lewin on the keyboards.

    For the new folks, we have had previous discussions about the Razzz. Before his health issues, Wally was involved with Steve & Bill on this project.
  12. This song has taken some lumps, and I get it. For me, it's one of those "so bad it's good" songs. Looks like we got us a convoy....
  13. Bump from 2018.... Any input from newer members? Addendum to my own post at the top: I said Eric never revealed "Boats" as an optimistic or pessimistic point. He ultimately did, as longtime posters know (pessimistic — but I still can't believe it).

  15. Actor Tony Ganios has died at 64 years old. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Ganios
  16. One of my picks for most annoying is "I Think I Love You" by The Partridge Family. But the King of the Stinkers has to be "They're Coming to Take Me Away - Side B" - by Napoleon XIV
  17. Since this topic has been resurrected, I don't know if any of these have been listed already: 1) Who Wrote the Book of Love? - The Monotones (Terrible name for a music act!) 2) What'd I Say? - Ray Charles 3) When Will I Be Loved? - Everly Brothers 4) Where Have All the Flowers Gone? - The Kingston Trio 5) Why Must I Be a Teenager in Love? - Dion and the Belmonts 6) How Will I Know? - Whitney Houston
  18. Yesterday
  19. The Bee Gees have a few: "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart?" "How Deep is your Love? and Olivia Newton-John: "Have you Never Been Mellow?"
  20. Good old World Party and Karl Wallinger. That is quite a compilation of song titles with questions in it from one singer/group. Such a talented man that few know about I'm sure. My favourite from that list is "When did you leave Heaven?" It just sounds like Karl singing in his living room, up close and personal with his guitar. Very sweet: youtu.be/dbfOMOqGJgY?si=U6Qv_5AiVQoiztVY
  21. Good bump LC. I don't remember reading this thread before, but I always enjoy what Eric has to say about other songs, artists and their performances. Sure glad to hear his shout out to Billy Joel and the song "Lullabye", which I agree is "heartbreakingly" beautiful.
  22. Thanks James for always being honest re: songs that the majority of people will not find moving. "Which way you goin' Billy?", sung by Susan Jacks of the Poppy Family is also one of my favourites. I knew her personally as she was from here in Saskatoon. We continued to communicate over the years. She used to sing in coffee houses here. So sad that we lost her to kidney disease 2 years ago. A beautiful haunting voice and a beautiful human being.

    I really enjoyed this, Kirk! Thanks for posting it. 😀
  24. My favorite Mama Cass song 🥰
  25. Spanky was an excellent replacement. IMHO. Similarly, I saw Boston perform in Bethlehem, PA at the old steel mill in 2016 and the replacement singer for the late Bradley Delp, Tommy DeCarlo, was excellent. Actually, they knocked everyone's socks off!
