I think the worst is over now...........

Sometimes when tunes come on the Sirius Radio I'm amazed at who actually sang them. You can program in the artist to show on the dashboard screen...or whatever that thingy is called. This is one of them.

Do you remember "The Cyrkle"???

Here's what they sang

If you don't remember this you probably don't remember 45's either. Gotta love the way they used tambourines in the 60's!


  1. i love it!!
    my niece asked me what the
    "little yellow thingy"
    was for!!!!
    maybe i'll make her a pair of earings with them, how retro.

  2. I used to buy 45s all the time......showing my age.......

  3. Ma soeur,
    Ahh yes, 45's on the Victrola. I remember them well. One of the first 45's we had was "I've Got A Lovely Bunch of Cocoanuts"! How's that for dating myself? And I do remember Red Rubber Ball!

  4. Wow! I was just a kid when I heard this song at a friend's house. She was the only one on the block who had a record player. "Red Rubber Ball' and "The Pied Piper" by Del Shannon were my favourites. I knew all the words, I still can sing along. Maybe Devon could get them for our class. We could all sing.

  5. I'll look into getting those songs, Giovanna! Leslie can tapdance to them for us.

  6. Yes, my brother and sister had this and MANY other 45s, I remember this one quite well.
    Glad to see you are posting again, Leslie - hope you are feeling better!

  7. I have a little orange "suitcase" that holds all of my old 45's...still in their paper jackets...remember when the chum charts came out,waiting to see what was #1,and then running to the record store to buy it!! what did they cost? maybe $1?? we have a stack of old chum charts,might be fun to pull them out and reminise...oh well.....these are the good old days,now!! linda k

  8. I can remember my "much" older sisters negotiating for an allowance so they could get the 45s on the Chum List. I never did buy one, nor did I have my own record player, had I not married the man I did, I probably wouldn't have had a stereo. The only time I listen to music is when (terrible english) I travel with Leslie. And sometimes, just sometimes when I paint.

  9. I used to love 45s. I recall how excited I was heading downtown to Sam the Record Man with my babysitting money. I even remember the first record I bought ...Runaway by Del Shannon.

  10. Funny how you can remember every word to these oldies. Haven't heard this one in a long while. My brother and I had a huge stack of 45's and we paid 99 cents for them back in the day.
