B-B-B-BOS to Aretha, "Call Me" -- my favorite of her self-penned tracks.


I love you... and I love you... and I love you TOO!


i always have to point my finger to the imaginary crowd when i'm singing along with that line.

Re's "Call Me" also has one of the best modulations ever!  *shivers with delight*

Too many BOSs today.  Easily Set O' The Week.

Yay for the Marmalade, even if it is dour and soppy and morbid.  This would have been a #1 if Badfinger had done it.

10-way TIE!!

This set is likely the best I've heard so far in 2005. Numerous nuggets, great TV themes, although a dearth of news clips.
Let's get right to it.

Good call on the Marmalade tune.  I bet The Babys coulda done pretty well with it too.  I really do dig the harmony.

I assume you'e familiar with Badfinger's "Maybe Tomorrow" (NOT the J-5 song), done when they were still The Ivys?

Pronunciation questions:

1. Dave used to pronounce it "Mosh Ma Khan."  Today it was "Mash McCann."  Which is right?

2. I think Dave should have deferred to British protocol and said "Marma-LAHD" instead of "Marma-LAID."

Back to you!

I'm afraid not.  I've never heard anything under the Iveys moniker.

I got a phone call just as the buzzer rang, what was BOS & HM's?

I heard most of the set although I lonly got back to my desk for the last couple of songs.  Very tasty, but H, JF & R are now officially a katrina in my book, one of the few songs prior to 1977 that has earned the distinction.

Do you mean Hamillton, Joe Frank and Reynolds?  They weren't even in there, were they?  (Hi, Mark!)

I believe it's on the "Best of" that was released in the '90s... It may not be identified as "the Iveys", though.

My bad, I meant Edison Lighthouse of course, not H, JF & R.

I probably said this before but I always think there shouda been a parody song:
"Rosemary Grows Where My Love Goes"
