I remember listening to that on my AM transistor radio, often under my pillow when I was supposed to be sleeping. But I thought her follow-up, "I Know a Place," was even better.Downtown, by Petula Clark. On 45! Now it's stuck in my head!
"Valley Girl" I knew, but that was from the '80s, not the '60s or '70s. Was done with his daughter, whose name is Moon Unit, IIRC.Sorry, those were top 40 albums, not singles. Only top 40 single was "Valley Girl".
Funny I mentioned Waylon already and now these three who, along with the pilot, died instead of Waylon and Tommy Allsup...all because of a coin flip and the broken heater on the bus.I learned about Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and the Big Bopper, who were all before my time, and tried my best to interpret the song and probably still can't fully appreciate all the nuance.
IIRC that might have been about the time they were phasing vinyl out in favor of CDs only. I remember trying to find a couple different things on vinyl about that time and either couldn't get them at all, or considered myself lucky to find it.Valley Girl was the likely outcome of Take Your Daughter to Work Day.
I don't believe I even own that record and I've got a pretty extensive vinyl collection with a significant amount of shelf space dedicated to Zappa.
