Oh jeez I sure do remember that and I always listened to The Dr. Demento Show on Sunday nights.

I hear this song every damn day on the radio at work. They loop the same songs over and over again, and the *NSYNC version plays. Grr-ah! Does that make me fee-rocious! :lol:

One song I've always loved was Melanie's Brand New Key. My mom let me play with her 45's, and this one was in there. The B side was Some Say I Got Devil.
I still have the spool, along with many other 45s that I've acquired.

:lol: :lol: Oh, wow, I picked a bad one to post! I know what you mean about the loop. This one actually used to be on a loop at the supermarket I shop at—that's where I was reminded of it awhile back. I heard it several times there myself, but I didn't have to work there and hear it all day. :)

So what is something else in that loop? I'm wondering if it could be the same one I used to hear at Bi-Lo. Did it have this?

Hmm, don't remember those, though they could have been in there. One that was in there that I used to hear ALL the time (always in the produce section, for some reason) was Don't Hold Me Down by Colbie Caillet.
