Little Willy Won't Go

Dr Monkey von Monkerstein posted a 70's tune that rocked his world in the pre-punk wasteland. It was Sugarloaf "Don't Call Us". That led me on a reverie of my own. My brother used to love that song, plus I remember him dancing around like a fool to this one:

If you and me are at a bar and this song comes on you must know that I will grab you by the wrists and force you from your barstool and make you dance like one of the Peanuts. I may or may not scream like a little girl. Situations vary.

In case you were wondering, yes. That sweater vest worn by the lead singer is currently on sale at Old Navy.

Here's another song that brings to mind my older bro' with his stringy hair and military surplus jacket (you could stash film canisters of herb around the collar)

(here is the straight dope on the "Pompatus of love")

Both of those sent me screaming back to my youth. Thanks girl.

Oh man, I hadn't heard those tunes in a loooong time. Wow. I'm ten years old, sitting in my big sister's room (with the love beads for a closet door), thinking about how cool she is because she has a record player....

Yikes - bad acid flashback in the best sort of way!

And I wanted lovebeads for a door, but it was never going to happen!
