    I just told Google to play Aimless Love. Got Lionel Richie Endless Love. The horror.
    At least you didn't get "Tainted Love", Ziret !! Seriously, I love his song "Hello In There". Bette Midler's rendition of that one is a tear jerker, bigtime.

    What? Tainted Love is way better! But sometimes I feel I've got to run away.

    Yes, I like the Bette Midler version, too, Bill.

    Love that song and that recording.

    I was at Grocery Outlet (otherwise known as the store that only plays songs from before 1972 so they don't have to pay) the other day and realized I had missed Bonnie Raitt in my life for a few years.

    What a day that must have been!

    When my sons were 3, 40 years ago, I was a single parent and when we'd go for a drive in the pickup, they liked me to sing songs. They'd say, "Sing that Blow Up Your TV song Papa!"
    Spanish Pipe Dream and Mamas, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys were favourites.
