A friend of mine, I won’t mention his name so as not to drag him sideways into this nonsense, alerted me to a weird reply to a comment I made on Facebook. For the life of me, I can’t figure out the things people consider important on that platform. Because my posts are echoed and occasionally shared on Facebook, I’m going to be vague about the details.
Suffice it to say my friend posted a snippet of a song lyric and waited for people to guess the song. By the time I saw the post, someone had made a hysterically bad guess. My friend posted the answer and although I remembered the song, I didn’t remember the name of the artist that had performed it. I admitted that and was chastised by another Facebook user for not knowing that fact.
My one-liner, although not shared on Facebook is,
“Lou Rawls, Lou Cristy, Lou Reed, Jerry Reed, Jimmy Reed, Jimmy Buffet, Buffalo Springfield, Dusty Springfield, Donna Summer, Edgar Winter, The Four Seasons, Frankie Valli, Ritchie Valens, Martha & The Vandellas, Van Halen, Van Morrison, Jim Morrison, The Doors, The Cars, The Kinks, The Ventures, The Rascals, The Drifters, The Animals, The Turtles, The Eagles, Sam The Sham & The Pharoahs, Sam & Dave, The Dave Clark Five, The Jackson Five, Jackson Browne, James Brown, Barry White, The Moody Blues, The Blues Brothers, Righteous Brothers, Chambers Brothers, Doobie Brothers, Allman Brothers, Isley Brothers, Mills Brothers – for crying out loud, how am I supposed to keep this straight after 50 years?”
