"Take Good Care Of My Baby" because it brings back great memories of when I moved to Florida in 1961, and this song was playing on the radio.It was recorded by one of my favorite singers, Bobby Vee, who, unfortunately now has Alzeimers Disease.

 

Hope you enjoyed being in Florida, after you moved here in 1961.  I have a fondness for the state, as DH & I are both native-born Floridians, from Jacksonville.  We currently reside in Tampa Bay area.

 

Bobby Vee was so popular "back in the day", but I rarely hear his name mentioned these days.  Did not know about his having Alzeimer's - am sorry to hear that.   Pam

Brick House by the Commodore remind me of the blue light basement parties back in the day. Dancing was truly an art when I think back to our moves! Shake it down down!

 I was in my twenties when the album "Born To Run" by Bruce Springsteen And The E-Street Band was released in the mid-70's. Every song on that album is just spectacular. I know every word of every song. I can even play a few of them on my guitar (just not as good as Bruce and little Steven).

Bruce has come a long way and still produces amazing stuff to this day. Listen to the "Live In Dublin" album; or better yet, watch the video. Bruce is one of rock's rennaisance men (along iwth Getty Lee of Rush). Speaking of Rush,....OMG, another amazing rock group. Kinda' got off of the subject didn't I?


"Born To Run" was spectacular - so glad you mentioned it!  I discovered Springsteen when that album came out, though he was popular in certain areas well before that.

 

A later Bruce favorite of mine, which just blew me away when I heard it, was "We Shall Overcome:  The Seeger Sessions".  He assembled such a great group of musicians for that album.  A fine salute to Seeger! Smiley Happy
