"When I was 5 years old, my mom always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down *happy*. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment and I told them they didn’t understand life." - John Lennon

Does anyone else wonder how the conversation went in the Bee Gees rehearsal studio when they were like, "Let's sing like this." I love the Bee Gees, but would just like to know how that went/happened.
Avatar Fri. 9/16/16 3:18pm Cecile:

They loved black falsetto singing and black music in the 70s. I think that was the starting point.

Also, Arif Mardin probably had a lot to do with it
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/16/16 3:19pm Ken From Hyde Park:

On the subject of life expectancy, I just now came up with song lyrics "Oh, bury me in the Boom Boom tomb." Suitable for a headstone or in a will, I suppose. Happy birthday song lyrics, not so much.

I don't want to be a Debbie downer but Sheila, do you have anything against girl pop from Spain/Latin America? Have you heard Las 4 Monedas or Bebe? Its gr8 that you are "partial to Japan, France, Sweden" but why no expand? I was digging your show until you said that. I hope you give those girls a chance.

Avatar Fri. 9/16/16 3:50pm Cecile:

someone said something about E-40 when they were writing about his beer (I think they used the words "a motrin dissolved in a damp bar sponge to describe the taste") something like "I don't know if he's the best rapper in SF, but he's the most rapper."

Mmmm ... Beth Orton.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/16/16 3:51pm Gaylord Fields:

A few years ago, I was at a get-together, and among the people gathered was Andy Breckman. A group of us were discussing our favorite songs/songwriters/records, and Andy turns to me and says, out of the blue, "Name a perfect song." I replied, "Will You Sill Love Me Tomorrow," and he responded that was exactly the song he was also thinking of.
Avatar Fri. 9/16/16 3:51pm Davis:

i didnt know this was goffin/king, and i've never heard this version- great. rod is my reference for this one
Avatar Fri. 9/16/16 3:52pm Davis:

yes Gaylord. it surely is the best song. never fails

  Fri. 9/16/16 3:54pm MONEYBAG$:

When Andy asks that question, the answer should be American Pie
Avatar Fri. 9/16/16 3:54pm Cecile:

I'm a weirdo. I think Highway to Hell is a perfect song.
  Fri. 9/16/16 3:54pm JasonInBoston:

RUSS! Doesn't get much better than that. Wash it down with "I Want to Make You Happy" and you're set for the night. If you REALLY want to tie one on, add "She Don't Deserve You"

HI sheila, love your show. listen every week. saw you in the book '' Dust and Grooves''. love your George Nelson CSS unit. I wanted to let you know of a song that is just wild. odd. By Lambert, Hendricks and Ross entitled "Twisted". To give you an idea of what the song might be remotely connected with, it is from a Rhino boxed set called { I think ) " The Beat Generation''. A 3 disc set with a wonderful booklet. You must hear this song. I love the photo on your dj page. Do you know of the album by Pat Williams titled "Shades of Today"? That photo reminds me of this album cover. I think I may have seen it on DJ COVERLOVER. Great music too.Thanks.

I'm a HUGE MJG fan! Their first album is one of my favorite LPs of all time. Yes I had this album when I hit puberty but that's beside the point. Every song on that record is fantastic and it proves what a genius Rick James was. JoJo was the one that could hold it down vocally-but yeah-I get it with the gimmick. Listen to "On the Inside". Excellent. MJG reminds me of the good old days of teen dances and the roller rink.

Oh, Alice in Wonderland. My bad! This is good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/16/16 4:46pm Carmichael:

I believe I had this Alice soundtrack also as a kid. Mine had Scatman Crothers doing the Cheshire Cat.
  Fri. 9/16/16 4:47pm modchick65:

Carmichael, I think I had that album, too!
  Fri. 9/16/16 4:48pm modchick65:

The single of the week kind of reminds me of Curve.
Avatar Fri. 9/16/16 4:49pm listener james from westwood:

I had a bunch of the Disney soundtracks coming up, this included. I believe I saw Alice in Wonderland in the theaters when I was teeny, during the re-releases in the early 70s. Mostly I remember colors. No doubt some veteran acidheads also seeing it at that time could say the same.
Avatar Fri. 9/16/16 4:50pm Mark R:

This Cuesta Loeb track is very cool. Feels more like a deep album track than a single (that's a compliment!).

7: Don't Be Early
When you run into a friend who has a birthday coming up, it's only natural to wish that person a happy birthday in advance. In some parts of the world, however, your seemingly innocent wish is supposed to bring bad luck down on the birthday boy or girl. In Russia, for example, you should never celebrate a birthday until the actual day of the event. If you can't do it that day, wait until afterward to avoid bad luck. In Germany, even wishing someone a happy birthday before the day of the event is bad luck. Just to be safe, some superstitious folks in that country don't give children any gifts until the day after their birthday.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/16/16 5:08pm Carmichael:

The Sapphires were from Philly, but "rediscovered" by the Northern Soul trend. That was written by Pam Sawyer and Lori Burton. The players included Gamble and Huff, Ashford and Simpson, and Melba Moore.

  Fri. 9/16/16 5:19pm JasonInBoston:

@Carmichael-Lori Burton also put the song out as Baby You Got Me, which came out on her LP as well as by Prince Harold on Mercury. There's an unreleased Sapphires version as well to the same "Slow Fizz" backing track.

Well, I'm a pushover for foreign-language versions of well-known songs, so I'm digging the shit out of this.
  Fri. 9/16/16 5:21pm jerry h.:

My personal favorite 4 minute non-pop instrumental: "Overture to 'Candide'" by Leonard Bernstein-seriously. Give a listen. Not that anyone asked. Diggin' Parka Pat, also. Love instrumentals. I think that they are harder to write than songs with lyrics. Did you know that there are lyrics to " Peter Gunn"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/16/16 5:23pm Carmichael:

@Jason: Wow, did not know that. Thanks for the info, just one more thing to find!
  Fri. 9/16/16 5:23pm JtotheK:

Sapphires 'evil one' on ABC is pretty good, too. And there are Sapphires 45s on Swan (I Found Out Too Late b/w I Got Mine) but I'm not sure if same group/lineup.

Yes Sheila. This doesn't do it for me. This music is dated in its original form. Imagine in another language. I've heard my share of Spanish covers of The Beatles, Eagles, The Mamas and the Papas, and I just got tired of it; just like Im tired of this show. Au Revoir Bichos

Pay no attention to the nastiness upstream. That commenter has been trolling other DJ's message boards as well (should be banned, imho).
