You and I must be about the same age. I remember when that song was a hit, which was right about the time "Hello Mother, Hello Father", & "Sukiyaki" were off beat hits well.

But, when I think of songs like you describe, I put it this way, "what songs do I wish I would have written my self?" And I can think of two: "The Look Of Love", and "Hey Jude".

I find it fascinating. The songs some hold so dear don't make a dent in others hide.
I have a talented musician friend who likes all the music I like but plays some strange background stuff at dinner parties.
I once asked him why and he replied, "don't you like it?"
If only I had the secret ......

It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

About a year or so ago, I was driving 400 miles. Had to find a different radio station about every 50 miles. This song popped up 37 times. Other songs also popped up 37, or maybe 47 times....But this is the ONLY one that I had to track down once I got back to a laptop:

Meghan Trainor..."It's All About That Bass"....A song with a wonderful message, delivered, disguised as a "pop" song!

Ray,

My Dad had a 78 rpm record of "The Green Door" he would play when I was a little kid, maybe 4 or 5 yrs old. That would be around 1961-1962 probably.

I heard this song years ago... and never could find it in the record stores... when I finally asked about ordering it, it was no longer available...
but last year I finally looked for it on U tube.... and voila! it still hits me square in the eyes, ears and heart and frankly it's the song I compare all of mine to and try so hard to measure up to
