Re: Book club

Not sure that this would apply to a virtual book club, but I recall the book club that our friend and Free Spirits member Gaye McOnie attended. It was originally a "wine and book club", but they discovered that the book part took away time from the wine part, so they dropped the books. :lol:

Add me to the above, and Ann confirmed my vote.

Good work team!.

Yes, I was getting ready to post that "I hoped that you could help me Ron #-o [dah]", and some other lame hints, like "this is no fun, fun, fun", so thanks for saving me from that.

Re: Name that tune

Another day, and no responses. :cry: It was Crystal Blue Persuasion by Tommy James and the Shondells. This next one did chart in the UK, but not in the top ten; I hope that is good enough. It is mostly true, but I really am already in, and just stay up late! "I come in late at night and in the morni...

Sorry Paul, Paul, and Grahame, I have learned my lesson. :^o Now if I can remember it when posting again! ](*,) Absolutely no idea. Is this another song that was a huge hit in the US and didn’t chart at all in the UK? If so, I can’t really complain. After all, I put up a Eurovision Song Concert winn...

Re: Name that tune

LoL, Peter. Dang, I would have had that on the first clue if I hadn't been so busy being all retired and stuff. Yes, today is the "official" first day of my retirement. I turned 55 on 10/5, and the rest of my life is all mine... :D :D :D (OT, but I just want EVERYone to know!) Congratulations and g...

Even with the help, I am a day late. :lol:

Jill, I agree, or at least I was planning to say it was Wolfie's turn, until I read Mr. Wolfmeister's last post. :^o I also remembered that, when we were first trying to name the tune, and decide who sang it, Ann said "Asia or Steeley Dan". Without looking it up, I think both are correct! Steeley Da...

Re: Name that tune

Thanks Ron. I thought the show was known in Europe (and the UK?). On our honeymoon, in the summer of 1972, we had dinner in a small truck stop diner in rural Norway. Long story, but the relevant part is that I Love Lucy was on the TV, in English with Norwegian subtitles; we laughed a bit sooner than...

"Well I tried to make it Sunday but I got so damned depressed" Sorry Paul, it looks like it charted in the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Not the UK, which may be why they named the group "America". :^o I mostly remember to look at the UK charts. but sometimes I am happy just to think of a ...

Re: Name that tune

Hi Peter I guess that’s close enough. The song is called Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes) and it was performed by Edison Lighthouse. The movie was Shallow Hal, starring Jack Black and Gwyneth Paltrow (who played a character called Rosemary). By the way, the next line is “And nobody knows like me...

Re: Name that tune

Not sure what happened to the reply I tried to write on my phone, but it seems to have disappeared.

In brief, now after midnight, Jill's herb clue made me think of "Rosemary", as in "love grows where my Rosemary goes, but nobody knows but me".

I don't know the herb of rememberance or the movie.

Wolfie, I used the info from Wikipedia, realizing that the people who contribute to the articles may not always be correct.

But, Paul is correct that it is your turn.

Re: Name that tune

Paul, I certainly was not being critical of you or your response. I was just trying to be funny, since instead of many of my songs, I actually looked to see if it had been on the charts in the UK! The previous few did not make it across the pond. Maybe if Ron comes to my aid, or I give the title tom...

OK Paul, up the ante! Now I have to consider how high on the charts the song was, in addition to where else it was used. (I am not touching the "how long ago" comment; all my songs are old. :twisted: ) In the hope that someone may be helped by one more line, appearing after the title at both beginni...
