Robo BS: The first music that moved you (55* d) RE: BS: The first music that moved you 25 Jan 01

Brother Clifton53's fertile imagination must be running away with him again -- it's that heavy Jersey air.

Watchoo talking 'bout, Waterloo?

I think he's still stinging because when we were kids I used to make him be the a-wim-bo-way backup singer as I sang Lion Sleeps Tonight in the living room mirror! I guess I never apologized for that (heh-heh!).

He is quite right about Buddy Holly, though. I was seven or so when That'll Be the Day came out, and it was the first song I remember being able to recognize when it come on the car radio and the first one I learned all the words to. Other than our grandmother's church choir influence, our Mom's "Make the World Go Away" country, and older sister Barbara's Sinatra, Martin and Belafonte(Harry!), we really owe much of our musical start to Tom-el, our next older brother, who brought that Buddy Holly album home and would later bring the Tim Hardin and Joan Baez to our ears.

Yours truly,

Rob-o and the Reflections
