SiriusXM - Let's Pretend - 70s on 7!

I listen to 70s on 7 a lot. Occasionally, I hear GATW, IWBWY, ONS (HR). Last evening at 6:58, Let's Pretend was played. I can't say for sure that it had never been played before then, but I sure hadn't heard it. Truly great music finds a way through. That reminded me of something that happened about ten years ago after a round of golf at Hilton Head. A group of us were having lunch at a "19th hole" bar when we heard a beach boys song. My son remarked how it sounded like Let's Pretend. The server, who couldn't have been over 20, overheard him, smiled remarked, "The Raspberries' Let's Pretend? I love that song!" Scott and I looked at each other like "are you frickin' kidding me"?

Crazy things like that happen sometimes…I remember delivering the USA Today newspaper in the wee hours of the morning for extra cash …I pull into a gas station and as I open my car door, the sounds from my 8-track player fill the pumping area with I’m A Rocker…A guy at the pay window yells out,”I love the Raspberries” and before I get to say anything, he hops in his car and drives away…

I was walking the sales floor at my store, and I must have been humming Love Is All That Matters. As I walked by Starbucks the manager, who is Filipino, starts singing the words to the song out loud. I joined in and we had a good laugh. This was a couple of decades ago- before I realized how popular the song was over there.
