"Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives. I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived."
-Jean Luc Picard

Retro Music: Cruisin' in the Olds...

My friend Joe of the blog 70s-Child, did a post about 8-Track tapes last Friday. While reading the comments, I remembered the free 8-Track tape that came with the Oldsmobile my parents bought. This is the only song I remembered from that tape, and it's been playing in my head since last Friday. Mr. Hairball is getting very tired of me singing this song. *grins*


For those of you on dial-up who can't do YouTube, here's the lyrics.



Hues Corporation - Rock the Boat


Would you believe that someone is selling what appears to be the same tape on Ebay?

Oh, I love this song! I have it on my mp3 player and it is great to run/walk to...Brings back 7th grade memories, because the girls in my class were very fond of it and played it every day at lunch on a record player. And danced. And the dweebs of the class (i.e. me and my friends) used to sit and watch them.

But I still love the song. Rock on with yourbad self! :)

"Get Right Back" is another classic that seems to go with it.

That's another one of those songs that you find yourself singing at the grocery store. Then they interrupt the music to announce that Fred in the bakery has a phone call. *grins*
