    The Tams ("What Kind of Fool Do You Think I Am," "Be Young, Be Foolish, 
    Be Happy," etc.) had a rather large hit in the UK, in late 1987.  It was 
    called "Do You Like Shaggin' With the One You Love," I think.  And, yes, 
    I was told by the guys at Radio Luxembourg about the "British" definition 
    of the word, "shag."  They seemed to be amused by the title.

    Hi Jamie,
    The album is called "Ifyoubelievein" and it's on Sundazed records.  It's 
    pretty bare bones, and upon first listen I didn't think the melodies were 
    strong enough to overcome the spare production.  I'll give it another 
    Spectropop Rules!!!!!
    Take Care,
