Thank you for being there on Saturday - that was so much fun :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I think I'm just a bit run down is all - couple of days rest is all that's needed :-)

This is a memory tune, isn't it? :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14pm Linda Lee:

well darlin that makes a whole gang of us.
rest is definitely the thing. why not post a rerun this week?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I've got Modernists and Flange in the can, so if I need to to rest for a couple of days that'll be cool :-)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

And lots of good British tea! ;-)

There's nothing that can't be cured with a good cuppa ;-)

My daughter and my partner are both in bed (it's 10pm here) so I've got my headphones on ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm Linda Lee:

so glad you're with us darlin. really am.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

To be honest, music always makes me feel better, so this is good therapy :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Not to mention the company :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm Linda Lee:

naturally! ;-)

same here! you know that.

I know :-)
Avatar 5:19pm Domenic:

Hi listening in for a bit. Some of your special selections. but the family will want control of the media soon. ;'

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm Linda Lee:

my mother, Carmela, had *all* of Shirley Bassey's albums. she adored her. i didn't recall that cover, though!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Domenic!!! Did you have fun on Saturday? :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm Linda Lee:

ahahah!! yours too! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I suspect there were several Shirley Bassey shrines then :-)
  5:21pm CC:

always loved this one!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@CC - this was a definite staple in our house :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm Linda Lee:

speaking of a Catholic household. my mother's family was *strongly* Roman Catholic ~but Mom was excommunicated in the late 50s for divorcing her husband. she loved church, though & she did attend. she just couldn't accept the Eucharist.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda Lee - that's so sad :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

My poor nan, who was divorced with three girls, was made to sit at the back of the church :-(
Avatar 5:23pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

Good evening you all! Missed the first four tracks. grr. Gotta do homework re: Jack Jones (someone @ wfmu boards recommended a couple of lp's as a start-with-this package, I have completely which lp's they were - suggestions for essential Jack Jones listening welcome)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm Linda Lee:

oh god. how awful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hello Photocopy Cha Cha!! :-)
I'd recommend the excellent Harbour album :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm Linda Lee:

hello Photocopy Cha Cha! how are you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

My tea makers are in bed - I don't suppose one of you would put the kettle on? ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm Linda Lee:

i'd love to, if i had one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Bit more Shirley ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm Linda Lee:

this one i know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I honestly think that 70s Shirley was incredible - the music, the looks. Everything. Pure 70s glamour. :-)
Avatar 5:29pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

@5:25 Linda Lee: hi Linda Lee, quite OK, even if this self isolation starts to get a bit boring at times - keeping in mind I am someone who does not mind spending their time in their own company. Then again, I am covered as in having a roof over my head and enough money at the moment to get food&other essentials delivered to my door. How are things over there?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

As well as this music there was also lots of british invasion stuff and general chart music :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29pm Linda Lee:

oh, absolutely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm Linda Lee:

well, you & i are in something of the same place, as far as what just seems like an expanded solitude.
alas, things are a bit more slippery here, in terms of the roof.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm Linda Lee:

but it's a day at a time thing. for today we're fine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

What's going on with lockdown where you all are? We had the most vague press briefing over the weekend ... no one knows what's going on at the moment.
Avatar 5:32pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

@5:30 Linda Lee: ummm, I hope youu don't mean the threat of homelessness?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

THIS SONG!!! :_D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm Linda Lee:

yes my dear. basically, yes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:33pm Linda Lee:

but this is only because i'm meant to be selling the cabin i live in. the contract was signed in february. we were a week or 2 from closing at the start of march ..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda Lee - our sofa bed is yours, you know that <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm Linda Lee:

.. and it's still on .. but my plans for what's next are totally screwed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm Linda Lee:

thank you darlin! that's lovely!
i'd be in fine shape if they'd let us travel. that's the whole darn issue. that was the plan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:35pm Linda Lee:

oh my god. what? Mandy?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:35pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This is the original - not a lot of people know that, but it is :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:36pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

And this is the chap who wrote it :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:36pm Linda Lee:

no kidding!! what!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Very early 70s - 71? 72? Something like that. This was on our turntable a lot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm Linda Lee:

how did that other guy manage to rip this off so thoroughly & give himself a hit?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

That';s a VERY good question!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm Linda Lee:

this is crazy!
  5:38pm Elizabeth:

Hello Georgy and everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm Linda Lee:

'Mandy' was an absolutely colossal hit!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hello Elizabeth!!! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Mandy was one of those everywhere records, wasn't it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm Linda Lee:

he didn't change a thing but the name.
hi Elizabeth!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm Linda Lee:

my god it was! every radio station, every tv show. it made piles!
now this cover i do love.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40pm Linda Lee:

that stinker Manilow. i never did like him. what a creep!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I don't know much about Scott English sadly
  5:40pm Elizabeth:

Hello Linda Lee!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm Linda Lee:

well, we do know one thing. he was robbed blind.
  5:41pm CC:

The trend here in America is to open things up it seems.. use people as guinea pigs... stall on approving another stimulus package...wait and see what turns hot..etc...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm Linda Lee:

don't get me started on this slaughterhouse of a country, CC.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:42pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@CC - it's been *very* confusing here. Go to work, but don't commute. Go to parks etc but not in groups. Visit people but only one person at a time ... None of it makes sense at all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Now this should bring lots of memories back :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm Linda Lee:

ooh yes. yes, yes. it does.
  5:43pm Elizabeth:

It's a nightmare in the U.S.- I feel very bad for the states whose governors are opening up their states- the virus is going to come back- and it hasn't gone away in NJ! So far (knock on wood) we are still on lockdown.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Such a lovely song :-)
  5:44pm CC:

I know it's so depressing!!!
  5:44pm Elizabeth:

it is such a mellow song- perfect to de-stress to!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Elizabeth - I have to go do the weekly supermarket run on Wednesday and I really son;t want to :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm Linda Lee:

that arrrangement. just beautiful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I vote we all turn our speakers up :-)
  5:45pm CC:

your music helps Georgy Girl... you have quite a diverse selection for such a young lady!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

WHOOOO!!! Massive sneeze just then!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm Linda Lee:

quite the brilliant segue there, Lady. what next? :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46pm The Last Greasy Casserole:

oh yes. so beautiful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

You cannot, absolutely cannot, beat a bit of David Clayton Thomas :-)
  5:46pm CC:

mine stay up when I got the radio on!!!
  5:47pm Elizabeth:

I don't blame you Georgy, be safe! I do the grocery shopping from home- it is very challenging getting a pick-up or delivery time. Usually I have to on the grocery store website at midnight to get a timeslot. It is more stressful than getting concert tickets! I can't go into grocery stores, because I live with my elderly mom who is high risk, so I can't risk bringing anything home to her!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@CC - I approve! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Elizabeth - I shall be in full armour on Wednesday, don't worry :-)

Manilow didn't write 'i write the songs'? that hilarious!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Those of you who watched me doing the Facebook Live DJing on Saturday will now know exactly where I do this show :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I *think* ... Mike Love wrote "I Write The Songs"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm The Last Greasy Casserole:

we did get a very good look this time. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm The Last Greasy Casserole:

oh my god Sammy screamed!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

If you can see the notebook hanging on the wall behind me, that's my radio show script book :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

And all the paintings are from my own fair hand :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm The Last Greasy Casserole:

a script book?
Avatar 5:53pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

I don't envy anyone who does not have the option of working from home (my partner for instance, worried for them) or goes shopping in person. As of now home deliveries are an option for me + seems like I am permanently unemployed, so no need to go anywhere yet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm The Last Greasy Casserole:

i was admiring the big green & red one on Saturday! that's yours?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The script book is where I write down the song order and any notes to jog my memory when I'm on the mic. Most of which I forget ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda Lee - yep :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm The Last Greasy Casserole:

well, it's right there behind you. security.
that's an amazing painting. really great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photocopy - does your partner have to go far to get to work?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm The Last Greasy Casserole:

i'm sorry to hear that, Photocopy Cha Cha. glad you're not on your own though. no one should be, now.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Dusty sounds soooooo sexy on this one
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm The Last Greasy Casserole:

just phenomenally sexy. yes. amazing arrangement, too. nicer than the top 40 track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This song may not be a popular choice ;-) I talk about that in a bit :-)
  5:57pm CC:

Dug the classics four...then ARS... this is my favorite Billy Joel song!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm The Last Greasy Casserole:

well, it was ubiquitous ..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

If you listen very carefully, you can hear Otis Fodder and Greg Bishop in the distance shouting "WHY????" lol
Avatar 5:58pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

@5:55 DJ GeorgyGirl: no, but no car, hence public transport and while the services are restricted - those of a library (as of now, the customers can only pick up reserved items) - the risk, no matter how minimal, is still there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I love Billy Joel :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photocopy - my partner is thankfully one of those who would be working from home. he normally has to commute to London, but with the social distancing, they'd have to put trains on every two minutes between Brighton and London to get everyone there which isn't possible.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:01pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I've just realised this is almost a sea shanty
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:01pm Linda Lee:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm Linda Lee:

haven't heard these commercials in ages! how funny.

I chose the main commercials from my childhood - the ones that stick out for me :-)
Avatar 6:04pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

I think even here in Finland they are rebooting the system too fast... there are gigs already announced (rebooked ones I guess) for July, gatherings of <50 people allowed from 1. June, schools open this thursday etc. This might blow up.

Gigs in July?? Wow.

@CC - LOL!!
Avatar 6:07pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

@6:04 DJ GeorgyGirl: this, or the web pages in question have not been updated. Dunno about the situation in July , like I said gatherings of <50 people allowed from 1. June BUT those of >500 people are not until the end of July. I have got tickets for events of rather a scale in August - will they happen? I actually hope not.

large scale I meant there

she really was. a really talented woman.
  6:11pm CC:

did your show expand to two hours Georgy Girl???
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I think I'm the only DJ who's in the drivetime slot (Monday and Friday) - and that's when the stream breaks. Literally right at the prime drivetime point.

Pride of Man was another favorite!!!

@davefromtoronto - hello!!! I have to find that now!!! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm not happy that Greg is having stream problems too, but I'm relieved it's not just me. Sometimes I take it as a Sheena attack on me personally. lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm Linda Lee:

for a while there the whole station was a mess. never just you.

Thank you davefromtoronto! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

It's kind of a mess right now. . .
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - I played Billy Joel for you earlier ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Yep - I can see the stream breaking :-(
Avatar 6:26pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

thanks to the silly musicians union rules the BBC TV music performances from 1966 to dunnowhen (late 70s?) are, a few promo videos aside, either live (to some extent) or unique recordings. Plenty of treasures there, as well as the radio sessions (also thanks to the musicians union's "needle time" restrictions for the radio from early 60s)

Stream outages seem to be happening occasionally, even today....the Jersey rats are trying to steal the satellite dish off the roof of the station.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm Linda Lee:

Otis makes me giggle regardless.

Tony Joe!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm Linda Lee:

the stream is a mess, though.
Avatar 6:27pm StringOFperils:

They're gentrified rats.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Chomp! Chomp!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27pm Linda Lee:

hasn't been this bad in a while.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Is this happening on the other channels too?
Avatar 6:28pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

sadly there is no picture, so no guy with a Max Headroom mask interrupting the show..
  6:28pm CC:

Something is messing up...that's for sure!!!
Avatar 6:29pm StringOFperils:

Sun spots.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm Linda Lee:

no idea about the other channels at all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Max Headroom! There's a blast from the past :-)

The Association fixes EVERYTHING
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The harmonies on this are just glorious :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm Linda Lee:

so glad we've gone back a few years. :-)
Avatar 6:32pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

@6:29 DJ GeorgyGirl: you know this incident where a chigao tv channel WGN had an interruption where the said Max HEadroom-mask wearing guy showed up for a few seconds until the intended signal was back. Then later the same video interrupted a WTTW broadcast of Dr. Who, this time in its entirety with sound and all
  6:32pm CC:

Windy always played nice back to with hey there Georgy Girl!!!
Avatar 6:32pm StringOFperils:

The playlist looks like an actual playlist form 1973--ish
Avatar 6:32pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

this must be your theme tune not Georgy Girl :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photocopy - I saw that on YouTube! That is WEIRD!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photocopy - I mean ... I am a vegan of a certain age ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Oh damn, it's cutting into one of my fave old commercials That'sa Spicy Meata Ball!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This is so frustrating!!!
Avatar 6:34pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

@6:33 DJ GeorgyGirl: sdadly I am a failed vegan - can't resist cheese.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm Linda Lee:

we're fine now.
Avatar 6:34pm StringOFperils:

That streamed okay over here, the commercials montage that you say kicked out
Avatar 6:35pm StringOFperils:

So that's interesting
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm Linda Lee:

here's a little proto-glam yes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Ah well - clean archive it is then
Avatar 6:36pm StringOFperils:

More in the progessive rock camp, aka prog
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm Linda Lee:

absolutely *brilliant* golden sunlight pouring into the room for this one. very nice.
Avatar 6:37pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

GLAM PROG!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Linda Lee:

the organ part is prog, but that chunky shuffle thing ..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Ok, lovelies - I have sent the clean file over for the archives, so we have that at least :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This was HUGE in our house :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Linda Lee:

so you were still in the States for this stuff, GG?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm Linda Lee:

must have been, for the meatballs & Palmolive
Avatar 6:39pm StringOFperils:

I don't know this Gilbert Becaud at all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:39pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Trying to think ... we left Vancouver around February '75
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

We went over in April '66 :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm Linda Lee:

oh, sure then! this was very early 70s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I love that groovy little 60s organ in the background :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm Linda Lee:

how funny, i don't remember that last one at all!
i do remember the Jim Croce though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I was in our kitchen when the news came through about Jim Croce. :-(
  6:43pm Elizabeth:

I never heard of Gilbert Becaud either! Jim Croce was all over the radio when I was a kid!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Don't forget that you have the immense Greg after me with Stop Hitting Yourself :-)
www.wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I think Gilbert Becaud was more of a chanson type artist who had this one crossover hit :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

I have a fondness for the Sinatra version of the Jim Croce song on his Main Event live album. It's wonderfully hack.
  6:46pm CC:

an all time fave here!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Aitch:

I was humming this Donovan this morning, must have heard it somewhere else lately?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Linda Lee:

ahhhhh.. back to the 60s! :-)
Avatar 6:46pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

I can't believe the contemporary attitudes some had about Donovan, in the vein of "compared to Dylan he is a teenybopper".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

During my parents VERY long engagement, my mother dumped my father (a five year engagement ..he was dragging his heels) and she briefly dated Donovan.
Fast forward to the early 70s and every time my parents had an argument. my mother would put a Donovan record on VERY LOUD and just glare at my father ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Linda Lee:

that's sort of the way we felt at the time, too..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm Aitch:

Never find myself humming Dylan...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm Rich in Washington:

Goddamn Osmond Brothers breaking in!
  6:47pm Elizabeth:

The Osmonds have hi-jacked your show- Crazy Horses!
Avatar 6:47pm spacebrother:

Signal dropped again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Aitch - I'm not sure it's physically possible ;-)
Avatar 6:48pm StringOFperils:

Stream is particularly cranky today...oh well, for one reason or another I've listened to several of your recent shows in the archives, and all out of order, so it looks like that'll continue :)
  6:48pm CC:

sounds like somebody's playing games to me!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Yeah, The Osmonds have strong armed their into the show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm Rich in Washington:

Whoa! That's crazy horses, GeorgyGirl! The Donovan connection, I mean!

This is soul-destroying for me :-(
Avatar 6:48pm Mr Fab:

Hey hey, GeeGee! Been doin stuff, but just had to pop in to say: your friend was WRONG about Congregation! "Softly Whispering I Love You" is a great record.

This is genuinely getting to me :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm Linda Lee:

the best piece on Johnny Mathis i've read is in John Waters' 'Role Models'. it's fabulous.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm Linda Lee:

what is, GG?
Avatar 6:52pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

as I buy my records for the music rather than collector purposes, Donovan and The Beatles are the only artists I have the same record in both mono and stereo - so you can guess I really do like their music!
Avatar 6:52pm Mr Fab:

Weird hearing Johnny Mathis doing this. I love his voice, I 'm just so used to The Stylistics' version.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The whole stream thing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm Linda Lee:

ah. well. we're fine now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The stream better not cut out during the last track!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

I am very used to the Stylistics version as well. It was a low rider favorite back in the day :)
Avatar 6:54pm Photocopy Cha Cha:

don't worry GG, think of all the joyful relief you offer us. as necessary as air and water nowadays!
