    "Lisbon Antigua" by Nelson Riddle. :grumpy:
    That's a little less than inspiring.

    Yeah, it had a link to listen to it online. Nothing impressive... <sigh>

    Winchester Cathedral was a really fun tune, and rather catchy at the time. The only one so far that I don't know, was Dangers. I had to listen to it, sounds like dance music that my folks use to listen to.

    They didn't have music when I was born. Unless you consider banging wooden branches on rocks and making gutteral sounds music. :frown:

    OK, now you'er exaggerating! There were no such things as "wooden" branches when you were born. Only modified grasses. Not much of a percussion section. Foop, foop!

    I'm thinking you are about my age. Is your song "Daddy Wouldn't Buy Me a Bow-Wow" by Dan Quinn? o:)

    I'm guessing that Evo was born when "Come Softly to Me" by the Sevilles was #1, but that's just because she claims all kinds of 1960's experiences. I suspect that she was jail-bait in the '60's, and "Runaway" by Del Shannon was her #1.

    I wasn't jail bait in the 60's I was in Kindergarten. :grumpy: I was 11-12 when I started going to concerts by Hendrix, The Doors, etc... My big brother was forced to accompany me.

    You're older than I am, btw. :biggrin:

    I know I'm older than you. I'm 57. Point is, if you attended Hendrix concerts as a child, you couldn't have been born any later than 1959 at the earliest. That makes you (gasp!) 50 in a month and 15 days.

    Math education left a little to be desired back then. That must have been the month a lot of crack pots were born.
