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.
