Drift Away

Dobie Gray died. The only song of his I know is Drift Away.

As a kid, I thought this was a really boring song. A callow youth was I. I heard it on the radio a couple of months ago, and wow, has that song ever changed. It is now such a great song. Who knew a song could change like that?

In other celeb death news, Harry Morgan died. He was 96. Ancient.

Mushroom Lady,

We can easily remedy that:

Carl Douglas "Kung Fu Fighting"

It easily trumps Drift Away in the can't-get-it-out-of-my-head category. All day now you'll be saying "those kicks were fast as fact it was a little bit frightening" or the ever so popular "there was funky China Man in Funky Chinatown"

See, I told you...Dobie who?

JAW fan

you are so right...
in fact I was listening to "dance the kung fu" in the car yesterday yesterday (thanks to YOU) and I thought, "I want to hear kung fu fighting"
--that IS frightening!

note: one yesterday is enough
(see what kung fu fighting does to a person?)

And in other (sort of) celeb news, I heard that Roy Orbisons widow died, from pancreatic cancer. The weird thing is she died exactly on the 23rd anniversary of Roy's passing - creepy!!!
