  1. Besides "If You Wanna Get To Heaven" & "Jackie Blue", this song should have been a 45 single BUT A&M Records declined. "E.E. Lawson" (from 1974 "It'll Shine When It Shines") (audio only & album track) youtube.com/watch?v=vYmvtcJ0CmM&ab_channel=TheOzarkMountainDaredevils-Topic
  2. I would like to know when did The Raspberries disbanded either on March 27 or April 27, 1975?? I also saw the cover of the next 5th album called "Bad Boys" but they declined for comment!!
  3. Both the late Margaret Hamilton (wicked witch of "The Wizard Of Oz") & the late Billie Hayes (Witchiepoo on the Sid & Marty Krofft NBC Saturday morning series "H.R. Pufnstuf") both appeared in the late Paul Lynde Halloween Special (which had KISS) in October 1976 on ABC!!
  4. The Taylor Swift song "All Too Well" (from "Red" Taylor's Version) which runs 10 minutes & 13 seconds debuts at # 1 (Hot 100) breaking Don McLean's "American Pie (Parts 1 & 2)" (which ran 8 minutes & 28 seconds) (sources say 8:37) back on January 15, 1972 which spent 4 weeks at # 1 for the longest song in Billboard history!!! Also "Red" (Taylor's Version) also debuts at # 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Charts. Taylor also says the word "f--ked" in that song!!!
  5. It's a shame that The Raspberries or Eric Carmen solo cannot come back then to the state of Michigan where I am from!!!
  6. It moves up from # 14 to # 11 (Hot 100) & moves up from # 6 to # 5 (Adult Contemporary) for the week ending November 27, 2021.
  7. Complete Freeport 1970 album (also available on Apple iTunes!!): youtube.com/watch?v=E2qxUtXlcT8&list=OLAK5uy_mChPAXYhhAfcOuSCGjYck55SV_9isswR0&index=2
  8. The stereo version of their 1965 "I'm A Fool" album as well as "The Complete Reprise Records 45 A's & B's Singles" (1964 - 1970) are available on Apple iTunes.
  9. In November or December of 1970, they made an appearance on NBC's "The Dean Martin Show" & performed "Lady Love" (song did not charted on Billboard, Cashbox or Record World & their last swan song on Reprise Records):
  10. Also "Not The Lovin' Kind" (written by the late Lee Hazlewood):

  17. Bob Messenger, musician who played sax & flute for The Carpenters has died. (no age given)
  18. My mistake, the female R&B trio TLC song "Baby-Baby-Baby" was at # 2 (NOT "No Scrubs" that was in early 1995 that hit # 1) that was # 2 on August 29 & September 5, 1992.
  19. If Taylor Swift's song "All Too Well" (from "Red" Taylor's Version) which runs nearly 10 minutes goes to # 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart, it will break Don McLean "American Pie (Parts 1 & 2)" which ran 8:28 in length & hit # 1 for 4 weeks starting on January 15, 1972!! By the way, Guns N' Roses song "November Rain" ran 8:55 in length BUT that song went to # 3 (followed by TLC "No Scrubs" at # 2 & Boyz 2 Men "End Of The Road" at # 1) back on August 29 & September 5, 1992!! There are 3 songs that are NOT remakes but written by Swift. The song "Better Man" was done by Pearl Jam in late 1994. The song "Babe" was done by Styx & went to # 1 in December of 1979. Finally, "Message In A Bottle" was done by The Police in the Autumn of 1979!! So there you have it.
  20. The movies "Some Like It Hot" (NOT The Power Station 1985 song) & "Mister Roberts" NOT on the list???
  21. Thought it was Jennifer Garner!! Never mind.
  22. Graeme Edge, drummer & poet for The Moody Blues has died at 80 years old. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graeme_Edge
