A Song For Morrigan

My brother had requested a special song be played at the reception. We were all to put in requests when we sent in our RSVP cards. This one had been kept a secret from Morrigan. When he sent me the following YouTube video I could NOT quit laughing. (I think this is what really started the YouTube war.)

Its from our childhood... of course.

He told me at the reception that he had even watched the video enough to see if he could dance like they did, but found it impossible unless he was holding something like a guitar in his hand.

Good grief... these guys are so thin they look like they had to have been strung out on something and never ate.

So... for my brother TN, since they weren't able to play it, and my sister Morrigan, so you can laugh as hard as we did when we watched it the first 10 times... I give you: The Groove Line by Heatwave.

I LOVE THAT SONG! Someone could have told the DJ to play it. It seemed like I had to talk to him every 10 min to play something the group would dance to...

The request was a good one for sure!

It was on the list to be played!!! We were keeping it a secret from you. However, they never informed me they didn't have it...we could have downloaded and brought had we known. Dang when will people listen to their customer who's picking up the tab?

That was great. A 'new song' for the couple to use every anniversary. ;-)

I used to be that skinny. I would eat and eat and never put on a pound. At 19, when I joined the Navy my waist was 26! When I got out it was 28. Sometime in my 30's it crept up to 34 and it was that unitl about 8 years ago. Now it's 36. Fah!

I'm so happy for Morrigan. Her husband is a lucky guy.

Hey Denny, I remember being that skinny too.

Yeah, 6'1" / 125 #. Those pegged to the knee bell bottoms made you look even taller and thinner.

Of course, I'm twice that know, or I was when I last weighed myself a year ago.

I note that Keyboards, Bass, and Drums are minority hires.

I do miss the days when music wasn't so segregated.

Ah yes, a Dreamland Skating Rink Classic...

Congrats Mo!

Perhaps we can all dance to that song at the next blogmeet. And by "we", I mean "you folks".

Dreamland skating rink--wow--that brings back memories. Hokey Pokey on skates--that is hysterical for a clutz like me.

I have that original 45. "We're riding on the Groove Line tonight. Woo Hoo!"

Songs were so deep back then. Ha!
