  1. When I was a little girl, a night out for pizza was a huge treat. We would go to Abby’s Pizza Inn, where my younger brother and I could watch pizzas being made through a window into the kitchen. My mom or dad would sometimes give me a quarter for the jukebox, and I always picked the same three songs: “My Sweet Lord” by George Harrison, “Ride Captain Ride” by Blues Image … and Tom Jones’ “She’s a Lady.” Thank you for bringing back memories of a simpler time.

  2. I remember some crazy ass commercial that was a parody of this…or maybe it was an SNL skit. I can’t remember, exactly but, I have the line “Box Whoa Whoa, Whoa Whoa” stuck in my head like it was an address for you to mail off for something. LOL!

    Tom Jones is just too much. LOL!
