Day 29: A song you remember from your childhood

I was gonna go with Sonny & Cher – “I Got You Babe”.  After listening to a version, I couldn’t do it.  Growing up, there were tons and tons of variety shows on TV.  (I promise I don’t remember and won’t play anything from the Mac Davis show, Donny & Marie, Hee Haw…but there I was, in front of the TV back in the day.  All the time.  Well not Hee-Haw.

I was ahead of my time when Saturday Night Live came around – I was much too young to watch that and it was on late.  But I had older siblings and my parents were pretty much done trying to raise kids.  So I was watching that and all the cool music that was on.  Fridays, too.  The Midnight Special, American Bandstand.  There were series and there were specials.  Great stuff.

I remember Kiss singing this ballad.  I’ve never listened to it much since then, but I remember being stunned that those guys could play a quiet song like that.

Interested in music from 1950s to the present, mostly indie bands and punk, but also avant garde, blues, Motown ... almost but not quite, anything. I'm looking for people to share music, new and old, and looking for new avenues to discovery new music. Come with me.
