Not my favorite, but the guy on the left with the doubleneck was my cousin Tommy Dawes. I found this after I heard it someplace recently. The haunting thing is Tommy looks a lot here like he did the last time I ever saw him; at my mother's funeral in 1969. After this recent interest I found out Tommy passed away in 2007, from an obnoxious comment on one of the Utube videos. I contacted my brother and he confirmed it. "Oh, I thought I told you about that..."
Tommy went on to become an ad man and he is the one who wrote the Alka Seltzer jingle "Plop plop, fizz fizz, oh what a relief it is." He also coined the phrase, "7-UP, the Uncola." I heard he bought Neil simon's old mansion in Long Island many years ago. My part of the family was kind of from 'the wrong side of the tracks' and we were not a close knit family. He was also a diving champion. I'll always have the fondest memories of him and his family. The Cyrkle were friends with the Beatles, I think Lennon specifically, I remember Tommy's mom had autographed pictures of the Beatles in her house outside Albany, NY.
My brothers saw the Beatles at Shea I think it was '65. I had one of the ticket stubs but lost it in my travels.I think The Cyrkle opened for The Beatles, they were virtually unheard due to the screaming fans.
My nephew has a one of a kind 33rpm album made by Tommy before she passed away. He refuses to give me a copy for some unknown reason, I have no choice but to let it go.

Gotta love AC/DC, excellent example of their bluesy/hard rock format.

I like this one because it is an original composition from a rather obscure female folk artist named Dar Williams who is certainly not mainstream or likely to be rolling in dough, but it bears a quite upbeat and catchy message of peace, tolerance, and understanding that bridges some rather touchy barriers:

Well I met her in the garden
Underneath that old apple tree
Sitting with a handful of flowers
Looking as cool as can be
We talked away a couple of hours
Then she laid her hand on my lap
Oh I thought I got to be dreaming
I didn't know I fell in her trap

Then she made me say things I didn't want to say
Then she made me play games I didn't want to play
She was a soul stripper, yeah
She took my heart
She was a soul stripper, ooh
And tore me apart

She started moving nice and easy
Slowly getting near to my spine
Killing off each last little feeling
Ooh everyone she could find
And when she had me hollow and naked, yeah
That's when she put me down
Pulled out a knife and flashed it before me
Stuck it in and turned it around

Then she made me say things I didn't want to say, you know
Then she made me play games I didn't want to play
She was a soul stripper, yeah
Ooh she took my heart
Ooh was a soul stripper
Tore me apart

Soul stripper, soul stripper
You're a soul stripper
Soul stripper, soul stripper
Soul stripper
Took out my heart
And tore it apart

Aah you're a soul stripper
Soul stripper, soul stripper

Eva Peron. From small town *censored* to Santa Evita. And then the tragic end.

Several great singers have done this song including Madonna but none has captured the nuances as Patti Lupone has. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=14DIoEWB ... re=related
