Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
1) This song makes reference to rainbows. Have you seen one lately? I don't think I've seen one in forever. Which is too bad, because they make me happy when I spot them.
3) Richard Carpenter was emphatic that his group's name was "Carpenters," NO "the." Whenever he hears the group referred to as "The Carpenters," it gets on his nerves. What little commonplace annoyance reliably sets you off? Those selfish seat hogs who act as though their bags deserve a seat when their fellow human beings don't.
|Did you pay a fare for your bags?|
5) "I Won't Last a Day without You" was written by Oscar-winning composer Paul Williams. He also tried his hand at acting, most notably appearing with Burt Reynolds in Smokey and the Bandit. Back in the 1970s, the three movies in the Smokey series were very popular. Have you seen any of them? Yes. And, God help me, the first one can still make me laugh.
6) This song was recorded in 1973 by Diana Ross. Now in her 70s, Miss Ross is still going strong with a busy calendar of appearances in 2017. What's your favorite Diana Ross song? I think this is my favorite question this week. I wonder how many people will choose Supremes and how many will go with her solo work. Here's my favorite. If you're not a fan, you might not know it. But I can't resist singing along. "Ooooh, yeah!"
9) Random question: Which of these is completely, 100% UNTRUE of you -- boring, lazy or stupid? I'm sure I can be boring. I know I'm lazy. But I'm not stupid.
