Too many good songs from the sixties.  I'd go crazy trying to think of my favs.  Tomvoz has a couple of very impressive lists.  Glad to see SHADRACK by Brook Benton and MY GUY by Mary Wells.

I was also a fan of I BEAT YOU TO THE PUNCH by Mary.

Brook's duet with Dinah Washington, ROCKING GOOD WAY has always been infectious for me.  His HOUSE IS NOT A HOME is also great.

POINT OF NO RETURN by Gene MacDaniels is an excellent choice.  I also like his 100 POUNDS OF CLAY and TOWER OF STRENGTH.

EVERY BREATH I TAKE may be my favourite of Gene Pitney's.  But there were so many others.

I've always been a sucker for one-hit wonder Bruce Chanel's HEY, BABY.

Another one-hit wonder, Dee Clark's RAINDROPS.

Was it Ben. E. KING who had I, WHO HAVE NOTHING?

Del Shannon's RUNAWAY.

ELVIS had a bunch.  I think HIS LATEST FLAME has been mentioned.  Also STUCK ON YOU.  LITTLE SISTER. FAME & FORTUNE...

The late, great Jackie Wilson's greatest hit was in the fifties, Lonely Teardrops, but he had a big sixties hit with HIGHER & HIGHER.

HURT by Timi Yuro and her other one, WHAT'S A MATTER, BABY (Is It Hurtin' You?) were both great.

Favourite Beatles would have to be ELEANOR RIGBY.

JUST ASK THE LONELY...I've got it attributed to the Four Tops is that right?

HE WILL BREAK YOUR HEART & MAKE IT EASY ON YOURSELF...by Jerry Butler.

The Drifters' SAVE THE LAST DANCE FOR ME, WHEN MY LITTLE GIRL IS SMILING, UP ON THE ROOF.

Dion's LOVER WHO WANDER, RUBY BABY, RUNAROUND SUE

Clyde McPhatter's LOVER'S QUESTION, LOVER PLEASE, LITTLE BITTY PRETTY ONE

STAY by Maurice Williams and The Zodiacs

Roy Orbison's WORKING FOR THE MAN, RUNNING SCARED

HE'S A REBEL, UPTOWN...The Crystals

BABY, THE RAIN MUST FALL...Glenn Yarborough

Ohhh...so many other songs...Most of these are just top forty stuff

Great lists everyone!

Is Chocolate Fudge a food group?  -Has the new Food Pyramid been officially released?

WILL & GRACE can occasionally come up with a winner. The Thanksgiving episode this year was wonderful. But their average is low and getting lower each season. The absolute worst story arc ever was the Will & Grace make a baby arc. Absolutely a loser from start to finish.

Just to show how quickly things can change down South. Yesterday, our high was 73. Right now, it's 48 outside.

Isn't anyone going to pick as a favorite 60s song "The Twizzle"? Immortalized on THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW by Broadway actor Jerry Lanning, it's got to be one of the great songs.

NOT! Even the cast of the show hated that episode.

Thanks DR Charles for the reminders: I forgot:
Save The Last Dance for me - the Drifters
I'll Save The Last Dance For you - Damita Jo
The Wanderer - Dion
The Honey Wind Blows - Glenn Yarbarough
Little Town Flirt - Del Shannon

Dee Clark would hate to be remembered as a one hit wonder! He had 6 top 40 hits in the USA - including the well remembered (I would have thought) "Hey Little Girl (In The High School Sweater)"

"Ask The Lonely" was the Four Tops (1965)

I am not speaking for the group but I am thinking we were going to see the evening performance, correct, those of us who have expressed desire to go?

If we can all agree on this I'll talk to DR WFO and see if we can't arrange our schedules to meet you that night.  :D

Uh-oh DRCP's list made me think of SUKIYAKI and OLD RIVERS....by different singers, but both on the Liberty Label...a great-looking 45!

Last night's episode beats that one by a mile!

The funniest one is recent memory, though, is the one in which Leo and Grace have Will, Jack, Karen and an old girlfriend of Leo's (played by Mira Sorvino).

That was a last season episode, but you're right, it was witty and hilarious. I had high hopes this year for a similar episode with Kristin Davis as Vince's gal pal (I believe this one was repeated last night). Anyway, it wasn't the least bit funny.

As far as Bobby Cannavale doing HURLYBURLY, I don't think that was the reason they ended the relationship. He's never been a regular, and has only had occasional appearances on the show. If they had wanted the duo to continue, they could have come up with a reason for his absence. With the way they had him switching jobs, he could have tried to become a pilot or something and be away at flight school. Who knows?

Try the North. Yesterday afternoon Toronto enjoyed a freakishly warm 68 F. Tonight it's expected to plummet to minus 6 F.

DR td (aka Martin): I think your avatar - good as it is - needs the same kind of reframing that DR George performed with mine the other night. I'd volunteer to do it, but mine didn't turn out any better the other night. Maybe some kind soul will help.

Ah, so I do have need of a re-size queen or king!
Just think of the gossip that could cause should kind soul and DR George have sized up you, DR elmore and me!

Oh, DR George. . .got a minute for a resizing? ? ?   ::)

It is pouring rain, and the wind is blowing like cazy and all I can think of is all those news reports you always hear "Church Bus Overturns on Turnpike"

Dear DR's all, please send Safe Trip Vibes to the Vixter, and
anti-anxiety vibes to her mom....

DR vixmom - Both kinds of vibes from me.  I know exactly how you're feeling, because several years ago we put our son on a bus heading to Washington, DC, in an ice storm.  I fully expected to see the "turnpike story" on CNN the next morning!  Good news is that that was the first of many successful trips for him as I'm sure this one will be for your darling daughter.

Hi, All - I'm having a Friday brainstorm, and nothing's definite yet, but I am seriously thinking about attending Penny's show with y'all on March 19.  I have to be in Cleveland on Friday for a meeting and could fly out from there and stay in the city until Monday.  Twist my arm, please!

Just finished importing huge amounts of Bacharach into iTunes, made a Bacharach playlist (currently over two hours of music), put in all the Guy Haines tracks that have ever been recorded, and then hooked up the iPod and without clicking one single button it imported all that music in about ten seconds.  It's playing now via iPod.  What fun!

Matt H that is a triple shame about Mark Derwin.  I think if they had used him more on her show and less of her co-workers the show might not have been cancelled.

Hi all!

TGIF Big time!  I didn't think this week would EVER be over.  

We had the rain today.  The temp is going to go down to the 40's next week.  Ugh.  The last couple of weeks has been of what I consider Florida weather to be like!

I had to leave work at noon so I could take Mom for her follow up so of all days it had to pour!  I hate to drive as it is but I was scared to death today.  Since I have an electrical problem with the van, I never know if my lights are on or off unless itís dark.  

I think I shall have to start some serious looking into getting a new vehicle.

Ginny, Iím doing a little kicking myselfónothing for sure on my part either but I would like to throw out the idea that if any of the gals want to share/split a room to bring the costs down, maybe we could talk.   Again, Iím not promising anything at this pointóitís just a thought.  PM or e-mail if your interested.

I really had it in mind to make the trip in the Fall and to maybe, maybe, maybe stay a week but if this was a short tripóFriday-Monday or Tuesday; I might make it up twice this year.

Believe it or not, Delta Airlines was outside our building handing out game pieces for a contest they are having.  I won 10% off of my next ticket purchase.  

Iím amazed that no one has said anything about the Monkees.  I loved them when I was kid.  Mickey was my favorite until he permed his hair.
