  1. (Amazing that I still remembered my password here!) Was referred to this page by a link provided by Edna on the news of the passing of Uncle Joe, which is devastating. But I am glad to find this thread and read names I recall fondly. I think of the old Songfacts gang often. My wife and I moved from Brazil to America 4 1/2 years ago, bought a motor home and have now travelled the nation since, until grounded in Louisiana for the past year by Covid. Since March, have been visiting friends and family in Brazil. Will return to the USA in May where we plan to get back on the road.
  2. Eight-year-old Mohammad had just moved to Ireland and entered his classroom on the first day of school."What's your name?" asked the teacher."Mohammad," he replied."You're in Ireland now," curtly replied the no-nonesense teacher, "so from now on you will be known as Frankie."Mohammad returned home after school."How was your day, Mohammad?" his mother asked."My name is no longer Mohammad. I'm in Ireland now and my name is Frankie.""What?" she said. "Are you ashamed of your name? Are you trying to dishonor your parents, your heritage, your religion? Shame on you!" And his mother beat him.Later,
  3. I revised a former website. The resistance to change is a real lesson in human nature. I suppose we all fear the unfamiliar. But this is simply a forum, no more, no less. Write and read. How bad can that be?
  4. I always felt sorry for her as a recipient of less than loving treatment by Lennon. As much as he was lofted and loved by the world, personal John could be a real jerk.
  5. There's sad news to report as Bob Burns, a founding member of Lynyrd Skynyrd, has died at the age of 64. Burns was the band's drummer on their first two albums and perished in a car crash that took place in Cartersville, Ga.According to Patch, George State Patrol listed the incident as a single-car crash that occurred around 11:56PM Friday night (April 3). The musician was driving northbound on Tower Ridge Road and his vehicle left the west side of the road while approaching a curve. "After leaving the roadway, the driver struck a mailbox and a tree with the front of the vehicle," stated patro

  9. Top Ten reasons only 2 Songfactors participated in the last Top Ten List game. 10. All other songfactors were hungover for the past month. 9. Probably because there are alot better places to eat than McDonald's. 8. I felt compelled to complete it, so I participated. 7. Canadians are always polite & lovable so McDonald's didn't run that campaign here in fear of going bankrupt. 6. The others were too busy standing in line at McDonalds 5. I prefer the In N Out burger. 4. I never post anything on Songfacts as I'm new here. 3. Sometimes I get writer's block. 2. All others were too bu
  10. Nice, Ray. I like the trick ending.
  11. The imagery is strong. My visual interpretation would be of an album cover of some death metal band.
  12. My first thought, as well, CanAm. Ford's voice is indeed a gift that he has cared for well over the years.
  13. One of my favorite classics "Reflections Of My Life" was recently covered by Marmalade's lead singer, Dean Ford. This is significant in that Dean is nearing 70 years old, which adds a poignancy and depth to the song that it might have lacked with 25 year-old youngsters singing it. The video accompanying Dean's singing is rather telling, as well. You can give a listen here. Edit add: video includes guitar and vocals of Badfinger's Joe Tansin, who is also producing a new album in which he collaborates with Dean Ford.
  14. Had a crush on her when I was a 13-14 year-old. RIP
