"I intend to live forever. So far, so good." - Steven Wright
G'day, W.Q.,I'm first! - or will I still be when I post this?This evocative chanson got to our #5 in '78 and #6 in the Billboard charts, being the only 'hit' of J.P.Y. in both countries. It's a positive goody, though.All fine here - and you?Better depress the 'Publish' button quick or someone else will beat me to it. Have a mighty good w/e.Byeeeee!
all is well over here. it turned cool yesterday, more autumn like. today RTG will pick the last tomatoes on the vines and I will go grocery shopping. we are finally starting to see some yellows/oranges/reds in the leaves.cats are currently napping and RTG and I just finished breakfast (pancakes).have a good week, king raybeard and pussies!
Pretty good song, hey.
g'day bruce! I see you have stopped by from john gray's blog; welcome, handsome!
Takes me back to my early days in Florida.
I bet all the boys danced to this in the clubs in FLA!
What a wonderful happy song that I had forgotten. Thanks AM!
love songs are to be remembered!
I used to have hair like that.I miss it.Faboosh weekend AM!
but bob, you are SUCH a handsome devil! no wonder carlos fell for you!
Hi, anne marie in philly!Thank you for being the early bird on SDMM today, dear friend! This song brings back the late 70s disco era, doesn't it? It's funny but, as I listened, I became convinced that "Love is in the Air" was used as the theme song for the TV series The Love Boat. After doing some research, however, I found that my brain was playing tricks on me, marrying two similar but different songs into one. This record was released in 1978 during the second season of The Love Boat. The theme song from that TV show has a similar sound and lyrics but it is not the same. I noticed that this hit by Australian popper John Paul Young was used on the soundtrack of a 2003 TV series Love Is In The Air: Stories of Australian Pop, a five-part documentary that celebrates Australia's pop music and its role in shaping culture. Thanks for this Saturday toe-tapper, dear friend anne marie!
hope you and mrs. shady danced around the room together!
I haven't heard this song in so long, I had forgotten who had sung it. Good choice for a Saturday morning. I hope you're having a great weekend so far. I get to do a little shopping for things I need, and maybe for one thing I want.Yes, I still have hair like that!
"I still have hair like that!" - LUCKY YOU! I bet you are just gorgeous!
Gawd, I haven't thought of this song in a million years! Thanks for the blast from the past!
fun times, fun times!
The chill is in the air out here. The first ski resort (A Basin) opened on Thursday. People waited in line for two days. Have a great weekend. RJJS
ski resort? too early! it has turned chilly here too; a windy front came through yesterday. fall is finally in the air in philly.
An unforgettable golden oldie. I wonder what that young man is up to now? Do you think he has grandkids and a beard?
probably both, dear ape.
Oh Anne Marie ... what a great song choice. Such an optimistic tune. You've got a knack for giving the people what they want! I'm up off my arse and twirling to this one.Best to you, RTG, and the kitties.~ Freckles
I selected this tune for mistress maddie cause EVERYBODY loves her!
Wow. Talk about a blast from the past. This song always reminded me of spring when I was younger.
like mistress maddie, you are ageless! :)
Love was in the air last night, or was that lust for gogo boys!?! Thanks you for the bday wishes, and again for the greeting in the post💋
lust, in your case.
I love this track. It's such a feel good number. Though I suppose that depends on what you happen to be feeling at the time - let"s not go there! Have a great weekend honey.JP
bwhahahahahahaha! hope the diners at the spanish onion loved the tune!
fabulous toe tapper!
did you dance around the room with your better half to this tune?
OMB Anne Marie, I used to listen to this one in the clubs in the days of my youth. It's hard to believe I was 18 once.
we were ALL 18 once. now we are old farts! :)
Last week I read your post on Friday and thought it was Saturday.This week it's nearly Sunday and I forgot that it is Saturday.I am totally screwed up.I've never heard of John Paul Young, but he's kinda cute.Mistress Maddie is ageless, not to mention priceless...
you so crazy! this song is JPY's only hit.and having met the mistress in person, I can tell you she doesn't look a day over 29.
I spend my Saturday night doing none of these. I will do better next week.
you promise? ;-)
That takes me back.
