    She did a subdued fox trot. I figured they'd start her out with a Supemes' number but I'd have chosen something besides tired old "Baby Love." The judges clearly loved her and she placed in the top...

    Wow...I've not thought about that in decades!

    Like many parents, mine didn't share my taste in music, so I often would use a huge old pair of headphones so they wouldn't complain. Of course,...

    What has broadcast "journalism" come to?
    These gals barely even mentioned the book, or Dancing with the Stars, which were surely the main reasons for the whole thing.

    Ha! Harvey Levin was about to have a stroke!
    As flattered as Mary obviously was, after a while you could tell she'd had about enough, but remained gracious throughout the interview. As I've...

    She was busy with multiple things and obviously a bit discombobulated as result. The fact that she even engaged the persistent reporter at all speaks well of her good nature. (I'd have told him...

    Mary on NPR

    Mary will be a guest contestant on National Public Radio's Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me on Saturday (09/07/19). It's a short segment of the show called "Not My Job," which usually comes during the...

    That Brainstorm number was great; I had forgotten all about it.
    Many DJs felt it just had too many BPMs, however, so they would slow it down by about a third. To be honest, it really was a lot...

    The retrieved leotard is now safely back in Mary's possession. The woman who found it bought it for 63 and priced it for resale it at 700, and apparently that's what Mary gave her for it. Unless...

    When I saw the opening comment I was waiting for a little fur to fly and I wasn’t disappointed. I can’t decide whether it’s pathetically amusing or amusingly pathetic. Either way, it’s entertaining...

    Nah, probably wouldn't work for Mary. That only seemed to work for Diane in "Love is Here and Now You're Gone," during her spoken segments.

    Arguably their best B-side. I found the 45 before it got any airplay and couldn't figure out which was the A-side.

    I like the extended intro, but I do feel the sound is a bit too sharp. Still,...

    Great remix.
    It's such a shame that the stupid title and those hokey lyrics spoiled an otherwise wonderful song. Especially annoying because it was written by Smokey, who was a consummate lyricist....

    Maudlin is the only way I can describe this song. I understand wanting to have a social conscience in a pop song (“Love Child) but a song about your man having OD’ed, lying there dead, is really over...

    I suspect, perhaps, that the other gals might have taken exception to it as well. "Skinny" does work better, and allowed Flo to add her sassy little quips.

    Wow...I've not thought of that wonderful song and Disco Trek in years! I need to dig it out of my archives. That dawn-of-disco collection was, and is, a knockout. To me, Moulton set the standard for...

    HDH got on a roll with that intro and consistent rhythm on "You Can't Hurry Love," and "I'm Ready for Love." Then Eddie went and teamed up with Frank Wilson and R. Dean Taylor and did the same with...

    Actually, Ronnie did take a dip into the disco pool in the mid-'70s, albeit without success. "You'd Be Good For Me" received a tiny bit of club play, but it usually cleared the dance floor!

    The AM radio/45 mix and the stereo mix are so radically dissimilar that they're almost like two different songs. If I had to choose, I would pick the more pared-down, intimate sound of the 45. The...

    My recollection was that the song was first recorded at Gold Star by The Blossoms. To me it's superior to other versions. Not sure how The Supremes ended up covering it.
