    it's very hard to pick 10...currently I'd say (in no particular order):


    *Jazzy Spies
    (Smy Guiley: I believe this is the correct name for the series, as mentioned on TV Land special IIRC.
    I know, I know...I can't get used to it and much prefer "spies/racecars")

    *Capital I
    *King Minus (well it's a song to me anyway)
    *Seasons (first time I heard this as an adult I got transported back 20+ years in an instant!)


    *Little Things
    *Go Ahead & Touch
    *a live film about a river, with a man and young girl "narrating"...music is a trumpet with mute. I'll probably post a seperate request for it eventually but if by chance someone recognizes it & has it on video please let me know, would love to work a trade for this.

    yup, unrecognizable is THE word...I've listened to it over and over and I still don't know!

    lol...good point, never heard anyone say that but you're absolutely right...heard it so much I just never thought of it

    I named it "Eleven Animated Funk" on my Sesame CD!
    What about that long drum fill? God!
    Love it

    Jellyman, The Ballad of Casey McPhee is on "C is FOr Cookie - Cookie's Favorite Songs" CD, so grab yerself a copy! I got mine at Circuit City of all places, I think it was $5.

    Can't remember if there was a Cookie LP right now but if you're into vinyl you might want to check online for the track listing.

    Also got to thank you for the "Mary Had A Bicycle" flash, absolute classic.

    You know EXACTLY what song I'm talking about. And BTW I was thinking of doing up a CD of rare tracks myself! Anyway, yup! That awesome drum fill doesn't sound like it's ever going to end and then it seems to come in at a weird place again. (I'm a drummer myself so these things stick out to me!)

    Thanks, Erin! I wanted to be "Orange Oscar" but the system wouldn't let me so I thought of this one. Everyone like my avatar? I'm going to keep grabbing cool vintage stuff and changing it I think just to keep everyone on their toes!

    You're welcome, Eric. And yes, your avatar is groovy! :cool:

    hey I just posted in Bumble thread that you should check this out, you beat me to it!

    on that subject, do you (anyone reading this) know of a good, free web host? I have a lot of songs in APE (lossless) format that I would like to share. I'm looking for fast/larger bandwidth, don't care about banners or popups since I can easily tell any guests how to avoid them.

    yes indeed, caught it too...I think it's spliced together : )

    No offense, but "Soul H" is actually from 1995. I'm surprised someone picked their #1 song as a newer one.

    I LOVE that one! (even though I forgot to mention it)

    That's also one of my all-time favorites! (although "The Letter N" is my #1 fave). I also like "When I'm Calling 'U'" by Jeanette and Nelson (a husband-and-wife Anything Muppet pair). That's all for now!

    No one thus far has mentioned my favorite Sesame song of all time:

    Chris and the Alphabets singing "Alive".

    They eat and breathe and grow, and that is how you know, oh oh yeah yeah yeah they're alive!
