    I can name that tune in...

    So I'm channel surfing the radio driving to work this morning and I come across a song I haven't heard in years - "King of the Road". I have memories of being maybe 5 or 6 and knowing every stupid lyric to that song and drove my parents bonkers singing along when it came on the car radio. So I get to thinking this morning what other songs that made an impression on me as a kid - enough to memorize all the words, sing along, and annoy all the grownups. I'm going to date myself, but here's a few that come to mind:

    King of the Road
    Danke Schoen
    Boy Named Sue

    I'm sure others will come to mind later.

    So which ones haunted your family?

    How about "Good Day Sunshine" by the Tremlos. The words to that one have been circling my brain for a couple days now. Another would be "Red Rubber Ball" I think that was the name of it, by the Asociations, IIRC. Those are the oldest I remember. I do remember the ones above too.

    Trailer for sale or rent . . . LOML's daughter came up with a collection of about 160 New Wave tunes she thought I'd like. Now in 1982 I was working mid-shifts in a heavy-iron shop. That's a main frame computer room to regular folks. I'd listen to KROQ all night long.

    It was frightening that I knew the name and artist on about 75% of the tunes, the name on about 90% and could sorta sing along with more than that . . . Pet Shop Boys, Haircut 100, Split Enz, Oingo Boingo, Yaz, Depeche Mode, Yello, etc., etc. . . . frightening.

    And to think a dozen years before that it was Cream, Janis, Jimi, Quicksilver, King Crimson, Zappa, Floyd. Thank goodness my dad played Charlie Bird, Art Tatum, Bessie Smith, Earl Hines, etc. or I could've grown up warped . . . . Oh, darn.
