  3. Forget the top pop song. On the day I was born (Nov. 8, 1955, since you'd be able to look it up anyway), "The Oscar Peterson Trio at Zardi's'" was recorded! No wonder I always had a thing for Ray Brown.

    I hear ya! If I recall correctly, Pop told me I was innoculated using a phono cartridge that had been prepared by playing several hours of the OP Trio with the late great Ray Brown on bass. ;)

    FWIW, your song is "Autumn Leaves" by Roger Williams
     
  8. "String of Pearls." Glen Miller.

    Perfect. Goes with my newest outfit.....chicken-skin skirt, (mid-length, as usual) and my signature bone pumps (medium heel, no hose....of course). NO TOP. :atoz:

    "The Love You Save"- The Jackson 5

    With, I believe, Wilton Felder on "Fender" Bass.

    I'm good with that.

    Maybe that explains how I got into Motown as a teen of the 80's. Maybe it could've been Softcell's cover of "Where did our love go?", either way, as a late bloomer to E. Bass, the moment I discovered James Jamerson, I was hooked.

    Now I can appreciate his funky DB lines on the early hits.

    I got stuck with Seasons In The Sun - Terry Jacks. :\

    I looked up the date I was (theoretically) conceived, birth date minus 9 months :D It came up as My Love by Wings.

    "Goodnight My Love" by Benny Goodman! I always thought that this was a doo-wop tune from the 50's. Never dreamed that Goodman had a #1 hit with it.

    Hey There by Rosemary Clooney. I had always thought it was Mockingbird Hill by Les Paul and Mary Ford.

    "Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White" by Perez Prado. Thank goodness I was too young to actually listen to that piece of crap!
