5. My college roommate was obsessed with that song...
This is someone who wasn't particularly into music in general (as opposed to myself who is a rabid fan of music). But he had a beat up cassette of this song and played it over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again one year. Keep in mind this was 1991 so it wasn't like the song was new. If this guy hadn't been such a super fella and great friend I would have wanted to beat him up for playing the song so much. But his enjoyment of it was so infectious that I just shrugged it off.

28. Windy
Who's peekin' out from under a stairway
Calling a name that's lighter than air
Who's bending down to give me a rainbow
Everyone knows it's Windy

Who's tripping down the streets of the city
Smilin' at everybody she sees
Who's reachin' out to capture a moment
Everyone knows it's Windy

And Windy has stor-my eyes
That flash at the sound of lies
And Windy has wings to fly
Above the clouds (above the clouds)
Above the clouds (above the clouds)

------ flute ------

And Windy has stor-my eyes
That flash at the sound of lies
And Windy has wings to fly
Above the clouds (above the clouds)
Above the clouds (above the clouds)

Who's tripping down the streets of the city
Smilin' at everybody she sees
Who's reachin' out to capture a moment
Everyone knows it's Windy

17. Dancing Baby !!! It just doesn't get any better than this.
"Ouga Chaka
ouga ouga
Ouga Chaka
ouga ouga

I can't stop this feeling
Deep inside of me.
Girl, you just don't realize
What you do to me."

"When you hold me
In your arms so tight,
You let me know,
Everythings alright,

I'm hooked on a feeling,
I'm high on believing,
That you're in love with me."

"Lips as sweet as candy.
Their taste stays on my mind.
Girl, you got me thirsty for another cup of wine.

I got it bad for you girl,
But I don't need a cure,
I'll just stay addicted, If I can endure."

"All the good love, when we're all alone
Keep it up girl, yeah you turn me on.

I'mmm, I'mmm Hooked on a feeling.
I'm high on believing that your in love with me.

19. Mom once named a cat Rosemary
Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 02:33 PM by KamaAina
'cause her mottled gray fur was "kinda wild and free"... she lived outside but ate on our back porch. Next spring we found her in the basement, with her kitties... and a feline dynasty was born.

Oddly enough, her granddaughter Kwan Yin, who was Siamese and Burmese on her father's side, grew up to be the most beautiful sleek shiny black feline creature ever in the history of the world.

Edit: sllek? cats not ogres!

23. Tommy Roe. What a cute little guy he was. Wonder what he is up to now??
http://www.classicbands.com/roe.html

Tommy Roe is sometimes described as "The father of Bubble Gum Music"

Tommy was born in Atlanta on May 9th, 1942. Among his boyhood friends were Joe South, Mac Davis, Ray Stevens and Billy Joe Royal. While a student at Brown High School, he formed a group called The Satins which played at local dances around town. The group performed several of his compositions, notably 'Sheila', which they recorded in 1960. At the time, the single was unsuccessful.

<snip>

His material often bordered on the plight of a hopeless romantic always ready to kiss and tell. Self penned lyrics such as those found in Dizzy ("...and kissed you and my heart began to melt,") stirred critics to label him a bubblegum artist, catering to just teen and pre-teen appetites. But whatever formula he chose to follow, it wasn't long before teen girls were following him. Especially girls whose names were cleverly featured in his songs!

In March 1963, he toured the UK along with Chris Montez, (best known for "Call Me", "The More I See You" and "There'll Never Be Another You"), and both gained their first substantial exposure. Interestingly, they were the headliners on a bill with the Beatles and witnessed some strong competition when the fab four reportedly stole the show.

<snip>
Roe continued to have success with 'Everybody', which became a US number 3 in 1963. A stint in the army kept him off the charts until 1966 when he recorded 'Sweet Pea', which garnered considerable airplay. The song reached the US Top 10, as did its follow-up, 'Hooray For Hazel', but Roe's biggest hit came in 1969 when 'Dizzy' topped the charts on both sides of the Atlantic. The singer enjoyed further success that year with 'Heather Honey' and 'Jam Up and Jelly Tight', but for much of the 70s he opted to pursue a low-key career in his home state.

Roe did release some new material with 'Energy' and 'Full Bloom', but when they failed to get much attention, he subsequently stuck to the nostalgia circuit. He released several albums in the 90's, but they were just re-packaged songs from his heyday. Memories of his past success were resurrected when 'Dizzy' returned to the top of the UK charts in 1992 in a version by "the Wonder Stuff" and alternative comedian Vic Reeves.

In later years, Tommy worked in country music and did some touring with oldies shows. In all, Tommy Roe placed eleven songs in the top forty in the 1960's, two of which made the number one spot on the charts: "Sheila" and "Dizzy".

Here are Tommy Roe's songs which reached the top forty on the U.S. national record charts:

1 (#1)...Sheila-1962
2 (#35)...Susie Darlin'-1962
3 (#3)...Everybody-1963
4 (#36)...Come On-1964
5 (#8)...Sweet Pea-1966
6 (#6)...Hooray For Hazel-1966
7 (#23)...It's Now Winters Day-1967
8 (#1)...Dizzy-1969
9 (#29)...Heather Honey-1969
10 (#8)...Jam Up Jelly Tight-1969
11 (#25)...Stagger Lee-1971

30. I like just about every song listed here.
I have a compilation CD that has "Hooked On A Feeling" on it, and every time the ooga chakas start, my five-year-old daughter says, "No! Not the wrestling song!"

I have no idea why she deemed it a "wrestling song."

32. That Was 1964 - Pre-dated The Bubblegum Era By Several Years
Bubblegum Music wasn't identified as a separate genre until 1968, a possible reference to the 1910 Fruitgum Company and their hits.
