"My Cup Runneth Over With Love" by Ed Ames. "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" (my mom would hold my hand and wait for the light and cross a city st. w/me; if it was in the Beatles' song, I thought it was cool to still hold Mom's hand at 5 years old); How Deep Is Your Love; Teach Your Children Well; What A Wonderful World (both Louis Armstrong and Herman's Hermits versions - 2 different songs, same title); Cherish; Never My Love (The Association); The Cover of the Rolling Stone. I had 2 older siblings, 12 yrs. older and 9 yrs. older, so some of their music is mixed in here; also songs heard every AM and afternoon on the school bus radio. Maybe times weren't such "Happy Days" in some ways, but the music made it all seem like it was. I was a child in the Vietnam Era, so I didn't understand some of the messages in the songs "in between the lines" til I was older. I feel sad for all the young people who died in that war. I worked w/a woman whose first job in nursing was in Vietnam. She said the average age of her patients was 19 years old. Bittersweet memories!

Anything from Doo Wop to Disco from the mid 50s through the late 70s.
