England Dan, 1948-2009


Dan Seals, purveyor along with John Ford Coley of some of the blandest pop of the 1970s, dead at the age of 61. Seals was from Texas, but got stuck with the nickname "England Dan" for his impersonation of the Beatles' accents. His older brother, Jim, supposedly was in the Champs, of "Tequila" fame, for a while, though frankly I have my doubts, then paired up with Dash Crofts in Seals and Crofts.

And England Dan and John Ford Coley somehow managed to come up with an even more vanilla variation on the Seals and Crofts style, hitting it big with the ultrasmooth "I'd Really Love to See You Tonight," which went to Number Two in the summer of '76. Like a lot of second-tier acts, Dan and Coley had a hard time making their lyrics fit their melodies, so that in the line "I'm not talkin' 'bout movin' in," the "-vin'" got overstressed, and they managed to break a line right in the middle of the word "blowin.'"

Not that it hurt their career much. They hit throughout the late Seventies with "Nights Are Forever Without You," "It's Sad to Belong," and "We'll Never Have to Say Goodbye Again." Their final Top Forty hit, 1979's "Love Is the Answer," was written by none other than Todd Rundgren. In all, they had four Number One hits on the Adult Contemporary chart.

After ED&JFC split up, in 1980, Dan went solo. He cut two albums as England Dan, both of which stiffed, then put out a country album, Rebel Heart, in 1983. That one was a hit, and Seals would go on to have three Number One country hits, including "Bop" and "Meet Me in Montana," a duet with now-divorced Mormon Marie Osmond.

Dan Seals ran for Congress as a Democrat in the 10th District of Illinois in 2006 and 2008, losing both times. However, this was a different Dan Seals, unrelated to the singer.

Dan Seals' last words were "Michael Johnson lives on, but he's bluer than blue."

I can't believe I didn't know those guys were brothers!

I wonder if they did tasteful harmonizing over the Thanksgiving turkey.

車燈來看看唷!
情趣用品用品對一般人來說充滿神秘動人的吸引力,許多人想一窺情趣用品用品究竟,卻又不敢太過接近,因為這個領域充斥著謠言與標籤、讓許多人深怕一碰及就會讓別人投射以異樣的眼光看待。

如果大家稍微留意一下,不難可以發現一些事,大多人在逛街時對每一間情趣用品用品店的櫥窗都會向內張望後姍姍離去,有一些人卻是假裝目不斜視的走過。畢竟台灣人的觀念並沒有像國外一樣的開放,所以還無法很公開與光明正大的踏進情趣用品用品去選購一些情趣用品用品
 
利用網路購物的方式去選購情趣用品用品是相當方便的一件事情,可以從網頁上獲得商品的詳細介紹而不必害羞的去詢問店員商品的使用方法,並且在商品的介紹上面也不亞於從店員那獲得的資訊,有些甚至還更詳細一些。
 
在台灣有許多情趣用品用品訂購網站,從以前只有少樣的情趣用品用品到今日數百種的情趣用品用品看來,這種促進閨房之樂的東西已經漸漸地為人們所接受與喜愛。

但以目前的市場來說,絕大部分的情趣用品用品網站皆以銷售台灣、大陸製造的情趣用品用品居多。原因很簡單:成本低廉,卻也因此犧牲了品質和安全性!情趣用品用品是直接與自己和最親密的另一半的身體接觸,為了節省一點點的金錢而選擇品質粗糙的廉價黑心情趣用品用品,實為相當不智的選擇。

夏天又到了.為了穿美美的衣服我花了好多時間減肥
,過幾天好朋友要結婚了, 還特地找了便宜又漂亮的服飾批發網站,

還有熱門的飾品批發網站,發現裡面飾品種類超多,有流行韓國飾品白鋼飾品耳環

還提供了飾品批發資訊、大小量飾品批發創業皮箱網路格子店鋪,連飾品工廠都是有提供哦!真是細心的廠商!!

最近剛好想賣衣服也有服飾批發可以參考真棒,

打理好參加婚禮的裝扮後禮品當然也不能少,

逛逛禮品贈品網站,還發現了廣告杯廣告衣服,還可以印刷耶!很不錯的打廣告方式哦,

不景氣~自己用個網站賣賣東西增加額外的收入好像也不錯,情趣用品網路上賣這個不知好嗎?

查查看有哪些網頁設計公司還有網路空間國外虛擬主機

還需要個網路行銷公司幫我打打廣告,

現在的網路行銷還有開辦網路賺錢特訓班耶,

哇~這個快遞公司服務範圍好廣哦,有空運海運國際物流採購,那寄送東西一家就搞定了!

最近好懶得自己整理家務找家清潔公司來幫忙整理好了,
