My plan was to have posts throughout the week for Round 7 of Lori’s Childhood Trivia. My plan was to read from y’all dozens of examples of One Hit Wonders from the 1970s, hearing from regular commenters and delurking lurkers alike. My plan was to list these other clues:
2. muddy lyrics
3. innocent but not
4. harmony; and finally,
5. my parents must have bit their tongue
My plan was both encouraged and thwarted. Encouraged by several people. Lollipop, Andy, Niobe and Pamela Jeanne came to my sandbox,bringing their memories of songs like One Tin Soldier, Painted Ladies, and Undercover Angel (LOVE that song!). Thanks also to Furrow and Beth for stopping by.
And thwarted by one person, a MAN, the very first male contestant of the game.
But not the first winner from the Lollipop household.
Yes, it was Josh, a/k/a Mr Goldstein, who cracked the code with the classic hit, Afternoon Delight by the Starland Vocal Band. From all the possibilities of One Hit Wonders, how in the world did Josh guess the right one??
For your own trip down memory lane:
And those muddy lyrics I spoke of? You can find them here. They include the murkiest (Started out this morning feeling so polite / I always though a fish could not be caught who wouldn’t bite) and the part that must have caused humongous angst for my parents, who had three teenage girls at the time, every time we set our 45 on ‘repeat': (and the thought of rubbin’ you is getting so exciting.)
When was the last time YOU had some?

Bridges is up and running! It’s a consortium of compassionate bloggers, which, I’m guessing, means anyone reading this. If you click over NOW, you can say you were there at the very beginning.
I am the Contributing Editor for Domestic Adoption. As such, I am on the lookout (and requesting your help) in finding blog posts that speak to compassion in this realm, blog posts that show a point of view in the triad with clarity and without rancor.
Thanks to Beth for nominating a post from Flicka, which will be featured in the coming weeks. Please email me any posts that have stuck with you. And if you’d like to submit a guest post, either something you’ve already posted or something new, let me know that, too.
Finally, I refer you to a clever post where Nonlinear Girl juxtaposes a quote of mine with a photo she took (she does these nonlinear posts frequently). I was fortunate enough to meet NG at our BlogHer panel session. You really should also read her IVF rant post.
