Just looked at the Chicago radar... Looks like a small cell of rain. They should be starting very soon.

I wonder if ChiTown is Ok... With rain falling and all.

Are we?

I do t recall the Everly Brothers Doin that one.

 

We are talking about the same song but wikipedia (the source of all knowledge) doesn't list an Everly Brothers cover despite a number of other people who think there was one according to Google.

 

It was covered by Jan & Dean and by Gary Lewis & the Playboys, though.  And when I think about it, I'm betting its that last version I remember best cuz I think I had it on an album somewhere.

The Cascades sound like Everly Brothers... That's probably the reason.

Well the positive here is that the Twins game lasts later into the day.

I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

Pretty sure the Everly Brothers recorded and released a country version, but I could be wrong.

Go Twins!

If they did... That is exactly how they snuck it by me.

Sticking it next to Bill Anderson and Buck Owens.

Honestly...I normally don't medicate. 

 

This shoots some holes in my speculations about some of your posts.  I guess I should not be so quick to jump to conclusions.

Conversely, it confirms my speculation about some of RB's posts.

Dan Fogleberg...now there's a name from the past.  I spent a good portion of my four years at junior college listening to Dan Fogleberg.

Nice Version... But it was synergistic with the NyQuil.

It's even more frightening now that you have to consider they are normal sober lucid thoughts.

Colabello just isn't getting it done often enough
