They Just Don't Write Them Like That Anymore!

We have an awesome new radio station that has just come on the air in the last couple of months here. It’s better than all the other oldies stations combined! They play all the hits that I grew up with, and they play so many more than the other stations.


I heard this song the other day, and I think it’s been at LEAST 20 years since I heard it. And you know what’s so awesome? I could sing along with 90% of the words right away! And – in an instant I was taken back to my high school days. I’m sure the same thing would happen to any of you.


Now here’s where the technology that I did NOT grow up with is so great. Instead of trying to write the words and describe the song in a feeble attempt for you to remember it, I’ll just post a link to one of the many versions of it on youtube.


It’s very true that “they don’t write them like that anymore.” I can't figure out how to embed it, but I will post the link...

Enjoy!

Great tune! I listened to it three times in a row! I clearly remembered the song and most of the lyrics.

For a million bucks, I wouldn't have been able to tell you the Artist and Title! Must have been One Hit Wonders! Thanks for sharing!

This song brought back good memories! I have no idea who the artist is either! Thanks!

Hmmm - says the song came out in 1981 - maybe that's why I don't recognize it...I was dealing with a 1 year old!
