  1. What? You don’t like ‘Ooga Chuka’? 🤣

    Maria Muldaur made me want to stick pencils in my ears.

    I have not heard The Lord’s Prayer song since I was a kid.

    Oooo…David Essex…

    Terry Jacks…🤮

  2. My husband said he substituted the words “I-I-I’m… I’m hooked on the ceiling” (instead of feeling) when he was a kid. Jim Croce, Kool and the Gang, Chicago…even Barbra S.! It WAS a good week!

    BTW–I can’t win! All I did was try to change my settings from “instantly” to “daily” where you’re concerned, ’cause there’s SO MANY posts I can’t keep up with them, lol !!! Then it, like, UNSUBCRIBED me or something!! What the hell? Had to go back to “instantly”, and I’ll just take my chances drowning…..under the weight…..
    At least it’s a pleasant death! 🙂

    • LOL. That’s funny. Sometimes I hit the wrong buttons on here myself. Or can’t figure things out– I like your husbands lyrics to the song better.. for a long time I thought the year of the cat line was ‘ you’ve thrown away your choice of lobster tickets”

  3. Lol! Lobster tickets are the best. They’re SO hard to come by, you usually have to get scalped ones, but then you’re always taking the risk of ending up with the less valuable crab tickets, and God forbid you get stuck with useless clam tickets….. 🙂
