Brian thought it would be a great idea to start this Name That Tune Challenge. I did too. So, here's how it works. I post a short link to a mystery tune. That's all at first. If after a day or two, no one guesses it, then I'll start posting clues. To avoid confusion, I'll only post one tune at a time. And don't look for the title in my link. I'll name the links "Mystery Tune #1" and so forth.

Good luck, John smile

John and Brian,
I think that song is; "My one and only Love" my Dad`s house was always full of this style of music. if I have that right I`m going to stay out of this I might have an unfair advantage. this is a great challenge to get into nothing here but info. you have a great day..Lane

Woo-hooo!

You are correct, John.

First a best selling book by Eric Berne, M.D.:



Anybody remember Transactional Analysis?

Then Joe South reads the book, and uses it to springboard his song:



which won the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Song and the Grammy Award for Song of the Year, both for 1970.

Congrats, John!

Great song, I remember using subtle backwards tracking on vocals using this song as a template for how to do it well without it being too noticeable.

Great game!

Yeah, we're going to get that ring from him...I hear it has every song ever recorded on it...but then I've still got lots of 8 track tapes somewhere in my place....,lolol

Great game!

Yeah, the Boyce/Hart Wikipedia page mentioned "Pleasant Valley Sunday" and my thinking was that any top ten song would be mentioned, as they had less than a dozen all told...

Love the song, even the obvious "homage" to Richards' "Satisfaction" lick...
