11 June 2022

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 to answer the questions, however, and here is today's questions!

Saturday 9: Let Me Love You Tonight (1980)

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

1) Pure Prairie League was a country rock band signed by Casablanca Records in 1980. The label, known for disco hits, wanted to expand their client roster in case disco died. (Which it did, and Casablanca ultimately went bankrupt.) Disco can be a polarizing topic among music fans. Do you love it or loathe it?
Neither.  I don't mind it, but I don't love it.  I probably like it more than I dislike it.

2) In this song, lead singer Vince Gill encourages his girl to hold him tight. Who did you most recently hug?
Walt.

3) Vince Gill left The Pure Prairie League in 1982 and went on to be a solo success. Tell us about a job you were glad you left.
I worked for an attorney here in town.  It was a small office with four regular secretaries and I was an on-call typist.  He was so intense on "work" that when someone returned from a vacation, he treated everyone to lunch so they could talk about the vacation at lunch and not talk about it during the work day.  The last day I worked for him, he called me to his house and asked me to go in and work the next day, because he was going to be in court.  He wanted me to make note of who talked conversationally rather than just work so he could punish the conversationalist.  I told him I refused to do that and that I thought it was a terrible thing to do.  When I quit the job, I felt like I had just been released from prison.

4) He says his favorite song is the country classic, "He Stopped Loving Her Today." Do you often listen to country?
I don't much listen to music.  I don't mind listening to country, but I'd rather listen to my CDs or classical music on the radio.

5) Vince joined The Eagles on tour after the 2016 death of Glenn Frey, taking over Frey's guitar solos. Do you have a favorite Eagles song?
I have never heard of the Eagles.

6) Vince met future wife, singer Amy Grant, when she performed on his Christmas TV special. Have you ever had a workplace romance?
No.

7) In 1980, when this song was popular, The Love Boat was a hit. Have you ever taken a cruise? If yes, where did you go?
We've been on several river cruises, up the Thames from London to Oxford, to Russia, Ukraine-Istanbul, China, several countries in Europe, and a Mediterranean ocean cruise.

8) 1980 also gave us the Post-It Note. What did you most recently write on a Post-It?
It's been such a long time, I have no idea.

9) Random question: You find yourself one of three strangers trapped in an elevator. Would you rather the other two people be a man and a woman, two men, or two women?
Probably a man and a woman.
