Song of the Day

​Here is a classic from 1979.


Makin’ It” is a 1979 pop song performed by David Naughton.

Oh, how I thought David Naughton was so cute. i think I had the 35 of this song.

I need to add this song to my Quick List Playlist. These are the songs I want to play without looking for them.

Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl)

There are certain songs that I seems to remember the words to and this is one of them.

“Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl)” (1972) by Looking Glass.

I was one;y six years old when this song came out, so I must of heard it the radio while I was growing up. I just always remember listening to the song. But until this post, I have never seen the video of this song. Man, the 70’s were definitely a fashion statement in spades.

Now, every time it comes on, I have to sing along with it. These are the songs that make me smile and remember the times of when I was young and carefree!

Just in case you want to sing along to the song.

Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl) by Looking Glass

(dooda-dit-dooda), (dit-dooda-dit-dooda)

There’s a port on a western bay
And it serves a hundred ships a day
Lonely sailors pass the time away
And talk about their homes
And there’s a girl in this harbor town
And she works layin’ whiskey down
They say “Brandy, fetch another round”
She serves them whiskey and wine
The sailors say “Brandy, you’re a fine girl” (you’re a fine girl)
“What a good wife you would be” (such a fine girl)
“Yeah your eyes could steal a sailor from the sea”
(dooda-dit-dooda), (dit-dooda-dit-dooda-dit)
Brandy wears a braided chain
Made of finest silver from the North of Spain
A locket that bears the name
Of the man that Brandy loves
He came on a summer’s day
Bringin’ gifts from far away
But he made it clear he couldn’t stay
No harbor was his home
The sailor said ” Brandy, you’re a fine girl” (you’re a fine girl)
“What a good wife you would be” (such a fine girl)
“But my life, my lover, my lady is the sea”
(dooda-dit-dooda), (dit-dooda-dit-dooda-dit)
Yeah, Brandy used to watch his eyes
When he told his sailor stories
She could feel the ocean fall and rise
She saw its ragin’ glory
But he had always told the truth, lord, he was an honest man
And Brandy does her best to understand
(dooda-dit-dooda), (dit-dooda-dit-dooda-dit)
At night when the bars close down
Brandy walks through a silent town
And loves a man who’s not around
She still can hear him say
She hears him say ” Brandy, you’re a fine girl” (you’re a fine girl)
“What a good wife you would be” (such a fine girl)
“But my life, my lover, my lady is the sea”
(dooda-dit-dooda), (dit-dooda-dit-dooda-dit)
“Brandy, you’re a fine girl” (you’re a fine girl)
[FADE]
“What a good wife you would be” (such a fine girl)
“But my life, my lover, my lady is the sea”

I Smell Cake

MAN!! I was just checking the news feed and I saw this… 2017 is taking away the stars from my youth.

‘Happy Days’ Star Erin Moran Dies at 56.

I remember watching her on “Happy Days” and them later on “Joanie Loves Chachi”. Oh how I wanted to be Joanie on that show.

R.I.P. Erin Moran and thank you for making my youth fun.

Well, one of my TV crushed past away today.

Richard Hatch, star of the original “Battlestar Galactica” and the Syfy remake, died on Tuesday after a battle with pancreatic cancer, his manger confirmed to Variety. He was 71.


I really couldn’t tell you about any of the episodes that watched as a kid, but oh how I loved Apollo and Richard Hatch. 

R.I.P. Richard Hatch and thank you for being one of my TV crushes. 

Side Note:

* My brother, Joe and I would always say this to each other after someone famous died.
“I smell cake! If Uncle Bernie died, someone’s gonna have to go on a beer run!”— Dan Dorian

“My Cake” is the sixth episode of Scrubs’ fourth season. J.D.’s father dies and he and his brother Dan have to cope with it.

Well, today was a sad day for an icon from youth. 

Mary Tyler Moore, whose witty and graceful performances on two top-rated television shows in the 1960s and ’70s helped define a new vision of American womanhood, died on Wednesday in Greenwich, Conn. She was 80.

I was a fan of her show “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.” 


I watched the reruns of “The Dick Van Dyke,” but know her better from her own show. 


So sad that our stars from are youth are passing away. 

At least we will always have her TV shows and movies to watch. 

And here is one of my Top 10 TV Theme songs…


R.I.P. Mary Tyler Moore. 

You did turn the world on with your smile. 

Concert To Go To: KISS

I was watching “The Voice” and KISS was performing with finalist Sundance Head and I realized that I would love to see KISS in concert.

How fun would that be? I wouldn’t say that I am a huge KISS fan, but they look like they give an amazing show.

Maybe, I need to put this on my 50 Things To Do Bucket List for 2017.

 

Remember These

I love seeing pictures of things that I grew up with. 


I would like to find one of those bunny perfume pin from Avon.
