Subject: [iddiots] Missing song FOUND!
First, a belated 18th birthday to the IDD. My 17th anniversary of being
an IDDiot is coming up shortly. Fly times. Thanks to Scott, FiL, and
everyone else for keeping this afloat.
For years, I have been looking for a missing song that has vaguely existed
in my memory. All I could remember about it was that it was a
summer-esque song and had a nice slow groove. I could further deduce that
it was almost certainly from my prime hit-radio-listening years of
1970-1977, although by '74 or '75, my hit radio listening had started to
decrease quite a bit.
For a while I thought perhaps it was The Temptations' "Just My
Imagination", but...no...close, but that wasn't it. I knew--I just
knew--there was some other song, somewhat similar, that I was thinking of.
Online searches did me no good; I simply knew I'd know it when I heard it
A couple of months ago, I bought a best-of CD by a band that had had more
hits than I remembered. I put it in my TBLT pile and got it out for car
listening a few days ago. I fed it to my CD player and, right after my
favorite hit by this band, a slow groove began...and within a few bars, I
knew it was my long-lost song! I practically drove off the road and I
played it over and over.
Before I reveal what it was, I'm curious--anyone think they can identify
it with the info I've provided? If no one gets it within a few days, I'll
give it up...
