29 September 2018

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!

Saturday 9:  So Into You (1977)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) The singer says that he noticed the lady in question as soon as she walked into the room. Tell us about someone who made a powerful first impression on you.

I guess my friend Peggy.  When I met her at the airport, after corresponding with her for a year, I felt as if I'd met someone I'd known all of my life. 

2) He sings that he's so into her, he can't think about other, more mundane things. Do you find you get easily distracted from your daily tasks? Or do you enjoy seeing your everyday chores through completion?

"Easily Distracted" is my middle name.  I can't remember the last "everyday chore" that I completed successfully in a timely fashion.

3) The band took their name from Georgia's biggest city. Have you ever been to Atlanta?

Briefly.  I was there for a weekend meeting.  The funny thing is that it was the day the new airport opened.  I flew into the old airport and out the new.  When I was going to the concourse (which I swear is a mile from the front of the airport) there was a guy wandering around looking dazed saying that he's flown out of the old airport and his car was there.  i didn't see much of Atlanta per se because we spent the weekend in meetings.

4) The Atlanta Rhythm Section once played the White House. President Carter's son, Chip, was a big fan and invited them to play at his 28th birthday party. How did you celebrate your last birthday?

Quietly.  We didn't even go out to celebrate until a couple of days  later because I had a show to review that day.  But we had a good time, going to a taping of our favorite radio show ("Says You") and then out to dinner.

5) Studio One, where the band made all their recordings, was torn down and replaced by a parking lot. Can you think of a structure that you missed, after it met with a wrecking ball?

Oh lord, yes.  There was a beautiful old building that housed the Newman Center at UC Berkeley.  It had wonderful warm wooden walls and a beautiful chapel.  It is now a parking lot and the new center is concrete and very cold.

6) This song hit #7 on the US pop charts. 7 is the number most often chosen as "a lucky number." How about you? Do you have a lucky number?

I didn't realize #7 is the most popular number.  It's always been my lucky number and I don't have a clue why because it's never brought me any luck!

7) Today the Atlanta Rhythm Section reunites with to play at classic rock concerts. What oldies band would you love to see again?

One that nobody has ever heard of:  Lawsuit

8) In 1977, the star of NBC's Chico and the Man, Freddie Prinze, took his own life. Is there a celebrity death you found shocking?

Like everyone else, I was so shocked to hear of Robin Williams' death.  As we learned more, his suicide made more sense, but the world of comedy was forever changed by his death.  Way back in 1969, Judy Garland's death was a huge shock.

9) Random question: What word do you always misspell?

Meredith.  It is the name of the daughter of one of my bosses.  I know how to spell it, but I ALWAYS type it Meredity (including just now!).  I have done so for about 30 years.


One of my favorite things to do too!

I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!

Apparently someone decided I should approve comments before they appear -- it wasn't me! --
so if you don't see your comment, it's because it's awaiting approval.  Sorry 'bout that!
