Impulse purchase yesterday = TV themes of the 1970s on CD.

Just as 'Lost In Space' evolved into 'Will and the Robot,' 'The Partridge Family' evolved into 'Danny and Reuben.'

Brian Setzer also covered Bobby Darin's version of this tune. You just can't beat this arrangement...or Bobby Darin.

Bless you whoever found this post that I 'mislaid'... until I found CNN I thought Politics was about secrecy and subtly impolite comments and such and I have learnt the error of my ways.
I may be the only person in the Universe who boldly declares this... but I really like Donald Trump :notworthy:

He says it as it is and goes forth where no politician has dared to go before...and I believe that he has put America on the map again. Unpredictable, some say...I agree but as cunning as an old fox.

For an Australian he's just like our folk heroes such as Ned Kelly and the Swagmen I loved to talk to when I was little. they had come back from WW2 to no home, no wife but despite dire warnings from my Mum to me they were heroes :) :) :)

Every day the Muzak station plays someone's instrumental version of this well-crafted pop song.

Kind of how I feel about the Tories teaming up with the DUP.

[quote=""Tubby""]Every day the Muzak station plays someone's instrumental version of this well-crafted pop song.[/quote]I worked for Muzak briefly many years ago. My title was recording engineer though all I did was make copies of the master tapes to send out to clients. This was 1978 - long before digital music.

I'll be spending most of my day today with two of my daughters in Philadelphia at The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts to see Motown The Musical this afternoon.
