Part 7: Quite possibly older than you
It’s Thursday again and here we are with another bit of tunage for you. This time, I’m taking the way-back machine for a spin.
Unless you’ve recently had your American Graffiti album or some of your Doo-Wop records out or tuned into oldies radio for an extended period of time, you might not have heard this one in a while. I tend to think of it as one of the very first tunes with a deeply embedded hook in it. Sure, there were hooky song before it, but this one was a quick setter with a barb on it.
I can’t remember when I first heard it, but I know that by the age of 12 I had an album with this song on it for when I needed a fix.
So, without further ado…..
PS: Speaking of being hooked, I think I’m addicted to fruit roll-ups now.
