Public Service Announcement

I had reason to be in the car very early this morning, Sunday morning, and of course I was listening to the radio. As the clock turned over to 6:00 a.m., every station on the dial seemed to switch over to either public affairs programming or infomercials. I have nine FM music stations on my presets and two AM music stations, and the only music I could find on any of them was England Dan and John Ford Coley's "I'd Really Love to See You Tonight."

Now I ask you, how is that serving the public?

I hope at least some of the public affairs programs were debating if the lyric was "I'm not talking about the linen..."

LOL, Alex - that line always mystified me back in the days of lo-fi AM transistor radio.

And Tom, you do realize that one song could have been "Muskrat Love" or "Havin' My Baby."

Just sayin.

I always thought the next line was "There's a warm wind blow and the stars are out," with "warm wind blow" being some kind of poetic figure of speech. Because who would be stupid enough to break the word "blowin'" over two lines?

You're leaving out an important comma:
"There's a warm wind, blow and the stars are out."

Never knew it was a drug song, did you?

Hmmm... I never heard "the linen," but I did used to think the lyrics were "there's a warm wind blowing the stars around," which really doesn't make any sense at all.
