Message: 2 Date: Sat, 17 Apr 2004 10:41:41 -0700 (PDT) From: Steve Harvey Subject: Brian Wilson Smile Listening to the audience tape of the Festival Hall show it's great to hear some of the stuff Brian has started doing: Marcella, Cabinessence, etc. Extra treat is the audience breaking into applause when the band breaks into non-hit favorites. Always a pleasure to know that there are others out there that dig the same tunes despite no radio airplay. What's the story on Brian's inclusion of a snippet of "I Wanna Be Around"? __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? Yahoo!

I've been sitting on a dub of "Who Cares," waiting for just the right moment to play it to musica. I don't own the single, however, and so can only report from memory that I believe it was the flip of "Feelin' No Pain," and that I believe both were produced (and perhaps one or both written or co-written) by Dion. At any rate, a lovely ballad. My info has the 45 on Columbia, from 1963. Can you help flesh out the missing details? Dig, --Phil M. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 4 Date: Sat, 17 Apr 2004 22:16:17 -0000 From: Julio Niño Subject: "Hago mal en quererte" in musica. Hola Everybody. I´ve played in musica "Hago mal en quererte", by the Spanish combo Los Pekes (Novola, 1964), a version (a little hysterical) of "A Fool's Errand" (Barkan/Raleigh), that reminds me of some Joe Meek's productions. In the Spanish lyrics, the singer (Maria Esther) complains about a boy that is always tempting her, but in the moment of truth runs away. I hope you like it. Chao. Julio Niño. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

This site may be my last hope to find an oldie from the 1960s or 1950s. I am not sure of ANY of these lyrics, but to my childish mind they sounded like this (male singer, possibly a country song): === I am the lonely man, that's me-ee [piano lick] I am the lonely man, that's me-ee [piano lick] I live in constant misery-ee [One line or so here, then:] I need someone to understand The problems of the lonely man, that's me (That's me (that's me (that's me (that's me)))) === -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 6 Date: Sat, 17 Apr 2004 18:33:33 -0700 From: Gary Myers Subject: Bernie Schwartz I just asked Bernie about the film with the Comfortable Chair appearance, and about the The Wheel LP. He said the movie was terrible, and that he just got a check for $29 because it was shown on cable. Re: The Wheel: "...was my contract with MGM and I brought in friends to fill out the album - Kenny E. and Gene Garfin did the leads on two songs." gem -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 7 Date: Sat, 17 Apr 2004 20:26:31 -0700 From: Gary Myers Subject: 1960 Tillotson song I've been unable to ascertain the writer(s) of Johnny Tillotson's 1960 hit, "Why Do I Love You So." I've been unable to find it on, or the website where you go to license songs. Any ideas? gem -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
