Classic Rock Bottom


It's Spring, and to borrow from the poem "Locksley Hall" by Alfred Lord Tennyson, that's when a Young Man's and a Young Woman's Fancy Turns to Thoughts Of Love.
That's the Theme Within A Theme for this episode.
Of course, with Love and anything else, things don't always work out.
Or it can be totally inappropriate, like an uncontrollable urge for a friend's girl- that's a definite no-no!
But for the most part, I'll stay on the good side of Spring and Falling In Love.
So why don't we just get all dreamy-eyed and Enjoy the Musical Ride?
Here are the links to listen, and Let's Fall in Spring Love, at Mike Pell Rockollections:

Seems you do not like that Sunshine Pop.
Which of course, will not stop me from playing it, lol!
Fallin' In Love by Souther, Hillman and Furay gets the Golden Pell.
Excellent choice!
The Four Aces and Linda Rondstadt were valid on their own, but also a setup for SH & F!
I had you pegged for that one, but I also had a feeling you might know it, or have heard it before.
So honestly I more had you down for the Bette Midler tune.
I realized it later that I might have confused you and other people- I meant that it was the first time I ever played Rick Springfield on the SHOW!
I like him and I am familiar with his music, but not so much lately- and certainly not as well as you.
This is quite a statemement:
You could probably find a song of his for just about any subject you tackle.
I always thought it was Elvin Bishop singing too, lol!
And I don't remember the Bay City Rollers' version of the Dusty Springfield song...only Dusty.
There is a song the Bay City Rollers did, Saturday Night, that is SO much better by the writer that that is my main memory of the goup.
Just got home and I am so tired that I can't remember the author, lol!
My feeling was/is that his version was adult, theirs was kinda teenybopper.
Who the hell did that song, and what I am I talking about, lol?
Thanks for the listen and writing my friend,

Mike, nice show my friend.  I thought that Bette Midler tune was okay too.  But the following song wasn't really my style.  I guess I'm not into Sunshine songs.

The Four Aces and Linda Rondstadt were both okay, but I really liked Fallin' In Love by Souther, Hillman and Furay.  That one's gonna get the Golden Pell.  Did you already have me pegged for that?  Probably.

It's hard to believe this is the first time you've ever played Rick Springfield.  That's too bad, 'cause he has made some outstanding music over the years and still is making great music.  You could probably find a song of his for just about any subject you tackle.  He should be a staple.

Speaking of staples, none in this episode.  

I always like that Elvin Bishop song.  I remember my sister having the 45 way back when.  But I didn't know until recently that Micky Thomas was singing on it.  I always thought it was Elvin Bishop.  Imagine that.  Anyway, that song has a tremendous guitar solo, especially for a pop song.

And you closed it out with Dusty Springfield, a song that I remember by the Bay City Rollers.  Do you remember their version?  Either way, it's a good song.

Yes, that was an odd pick, Bette Midler.
But I thought it was a cool song and a good way to start the 2nd half.
I have always liked that Souther, Hillman & Furay song, so it was easy to think of it.
Rjhog is a fan of Rick Springfield fan?
Then Dusty Springfield and you wonder if he popped...hahahahahaha?
He is a fan of hers too?
I almost agree about the Elvin Bishop song...but I don't play it much and don't listen often to the radio.
No you're not juvenile...not at all...wondering if RJ popped, LOL?
I like to be all over the place, but I was just going through the Elvis and Bruuuuuuuuuce songs now that you mention it.
I may not be able to do a show for this coming week, there was a death in the family of a close friend Thursday night.
With all that comes with that, I don't see me having the time.
So the Spring Series Finale will probably be postponed for a week.
Thanks for listening and writing, and being mostly normal, lol,

Wow , you started of with Bette Midler? I like Bette Midler! She puts on one hell of a show (at least from what I've seen on HBO).

Souther, Hillman & Furey was a really good song. I liked it a lot. 

Hey, check the front of Rjhog's pants! You played Rick Springfield. Guaranteed he's excited!

And then Dusty Springfield! Wonder if he popped?

The Elvin Bishop song, I'm kinda tired of it. The lyrics are really juvenile, aren't they? I'm not juvenile. that's fer shure!

Nice mix here. You were all over the board and I liked that. Plus no Elvis! Or Bruuuuuuuuuce!
