  1. I'd never heard this song before. It amazes me how songs can make it to the top four in the UK, yet I've missed them here in the US.

  2. This is a new-to-me tune. It kinda makes me think of something out of the late 60s. I'm surprised I haven't heard of it before now, but that's one thing I love about MM with the introduction to new music. Have a dancetastic week, Ian!

  3. I definitely have to agree with everyone else. Totally classic tunage. Thanks for the dance and have a rockin' week! :)

  4. A very good selection.
    Thank you!

  5. Lovely selection; Greeting from Belgium
