'Antibodies' sounds also used on several episodes of 'Lost in Space'.

Very cleansing.
Thank you.

i love that a song's musical into can trigger a sweet memory..
  Sat. 11/12/16 9:12am WilliamfromDumont:

Mornin' all. Last Sat. seems like a million years ago.
  Sat. 11/12/16 9:12am Stuart Rose:

This traffic song sounds like an early David Bowie song.
Good morning, Brainacs near and far,
Avatar Sat. 11/12/16 9:18am guy mauve:

Where are my manners?

Yes, a good morning, to one and all.
Avatar Sat. 11/12/16 9:20am melinda:

morning everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/12/16 9:22am dale:

i only knew the perry como version of this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/12/16 9:30am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- & the English Beats'. & Andy Williams'?
Avatar Sat. 11/12/16 9:32am melinda:

I think I first heard English Beat and was subsequently surprised to discover the Andy Williams.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/12/16 9:34am dale:

i was wrong - meant andy. same catatonically smooth voice, though
Avatar Sat. 11/12/16 9:38am melinda:

Catatonically smooth, haha
  Sat. 11/12/16 9:41am WilliamfromDumont:

I'm not ashamed to admit I love Spanky & Our Gang's take on Suzanne.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/12/16 9:46am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

It's funny - the stuff we used to think utterly Fuddy - now it's like - good crooner, nice guy!, good song choices...even Lawrence Welk had actual Jaz on it I suspect...
Avatar Sat. 11/12/16 9:47am melinda:

I haven't heard the Spanky & Our Gang but I love Judy Collins's version. Hard to go wrong with Suzanne, though I'm sure someone could ruin it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/12/16 9:49am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...even the cheap garbage & the background music was such a different Culture from now - the 'music of our unconscious' I think Hal Wilner said in some Bugs Bunny Carl Stalling liner notes...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/12/16 9:51am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...there was Jazz to be heard as 'incidental' music...Lo, how the 20th Century recedes!
  Sat. 11/12/16 9:52am Stuart Rose:

Yes, Melinda, the Judy Collins version is the gold standard. So beautiful, like her Who Knows Where the Time Goes.
Avatar Sat. 11/12/16 9:52am Fuzzy:

Tossed salads and scrambled eggs.
Avatar Sat. 11/12/16 9:54am melinda:

@Stuart: I also love her version of Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues, maybe because it's the first one I heard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/12/16 9:54am annie:

the only other version of "Who Knows..." that i swoon over is Kate Wolf's cover..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/12/16 9:54am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Judy Collins literally shoved Leonard Cohen on stage to start his performing career.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/12/16 9:54am annie:

@Fuzzy: i love that^
  Sat. 11/12/16 9:56am iff:

is Cecelia the earliest occurrence of the lyrics "down on my knees, begging you please"? the same phrase can be found on probably 100s of songs.
Avatar Sat. 11/12/16 9:58am melinda:

Bridget St. John also did a great Suzanne.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/12/16 9:59am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

A good obvious rhyme & a time-honored Blues trope I wager.
  Sat. 11/12/16 10:02am Stuart Rose:

Ah, that one, too, Melinda.
Judy was probably the greatest interpreter of songs in that period- something like 4 or 5 beautiful albums in a row.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/12/16 10:03am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Judy covering 'Both Sides Now' was a major very early boost for Joni too (of course).
Avatar Sat. 11/12/16 10:04am melinda:

She really was. I only have one album, In My Life.
Avatar Sat. 11/12/16 10:05am melinda:

Great film.
  Sat. 11/12/16 10:05am StuBot:

good show man. very different. WFMU needs different.
Avatar Sat. 11/12/16 10:05am melinda:

I like hearing all the Gravy Waltzes.
  Sat. 11/12/16 10:10am StuBot:

haha...it's different because I was listening to 89.5 WSOU :) oops.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/12/16 10:10am Brian in UK:

Hello Bob.
@WilliamfromDumont totally agree with you about Suzanne. Some might find it a bit light but the harmonies do it justice.
  Sat. 11/12/16 10:14am Stuart Rose:

Right, Rev. Judy knew quality when she heard it. She really had an ear for wistful and poignant songs.
  Sat. 11/12/16 10:15am iff:

its up there with "take me by the hand, make you understand"
  Sat. 11/12/16 10:24am WilliamfromDumont:

@Brian in UK. Yeah, it's definitely "produced", but I love it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/12/16 10:43am common:

It just so happens I haven't listened to FMU for a long time. I forgot how great Bob Brainen's show is!
  Sat. 11/12/16 10:59am gene sculatti:

Listening live. "World's Greatest Sinner," Hot 9, "Painter of Women." Killer songs, segues.
