nice to think we singing the same song in our heads all those miles away

Rennie – Hey Nix it’s funny that the New Seekers had a hit with Neverending Song of Love.

Tanktop – Too late Rennie I posted the same about Delaney and friends, Nix the New seekers or Delaney who recorded it first

Nix – I honestly don’t know. But I did find this on the ‘net:

It gives a bit of history on the song. And, is it just a US phenomenon, or is the whole world being treated (I use the term loosely) to the new Coke ads (“I’d like to teach the world to chill” )?

I’ll be off in the corner, pounding my head against the wall…

Rennie – Ray Stevens – Misty
I can always remember this being played in a film. I think it was Lemon Popsicle… can anyone confirm that?

Tanktop – First of all Rennie what were you doing watching a naughty film I have to confess I have seen the film about 20 years ago and the soundtrack was brilliant, the opening song Greenfields by Brothers Four still gives me a sense of times gone by, but alas no Misty by Ray Stevens. The Isralien film centred mainly on the rock n roll era and was followed by a series of follow up films ie: Hot Bubblegum/Going Steady/Up your Anchor……the music really was superb.

Nix – Top this- “Cat’s in the Cradle”–Harry Chapin
While driving my 3.9 yr old to his first day of pre-school.
It was the ultimate in pathetic moments.

Hattie – Capitol Gold – Me and Mrs Jones – Billy Paul

Nix – When You’re In Love With A Beautiful Woman – Dr. Hook

I started building Escape in 2005 and in it’s early form I had the pleasure of a great 70s community. Sadly with Escape’s new design we couldn’t incorporate the old threads into the new forum but so we don’t lose all those magical old chats we’ve collected them all here for you to go back and read.
