a sign i am such a dork

time life commercial---romantic classics of the 70s. omg, i want to fucking buy this thing! tie a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree; baby baby don't get hooked on me; (complete liner notes!) southern nights; angie baby (helen reddy rocks); 5 easy payments of $29.99 each; my eyes adored you (but wait! a free bonus cd--have i told you lately that i love you; stuck on you; that's a total of 10 cds, 156 hits (lady, kenny rogers). holy crap, if i order in the next 17 minutes i'll get free shipping and handling. don't go breaking my heart; Kiki dee is ugly; you don't have to be a star baby; reunited (peaches & herb--i was in middle school dudes); love will keep us together; baby, i love you to want me (lobo); afternoon delight (elementary school at the skate rink in wv w/ my teenage aunt); lonely people (america); it's the right time of the night; ohhhhhhhhhhh---david soul (the blond from starsky & hutch) just when i needed you most; three times a lady; you and me against the world; you needed me; annie's song (we sang that at summer camp when i was in 3rd grade); you're so vain; time passages. ok, only the 70s could give you a name like englebert humperdink! delta dawn--i played that one on the juke box when my grandma took me to the vfw. i ate peanut butter cups, sat at the bar and pumped the juke box full of quarters : )

sigh---officially a dork now.

We could split it, and mail the CDs back and forth.

I LOVE the 70's.

sigh. I guess I am a dork, too.

You crack me up. Maybe you should see if you could download the top 70's hits from itunes. It may be cheaper/faster.

We are definitely the same age.

I'm gonna have to say I agree with you on your self-assessment. Not to worry though, there's a LOT of us out there. I knew everyone of those songs!

Kristin.... said...

That compilation would be a HIT in this house!

Sadly, I own Monster Ballads. :)

Astarte said...

Ak!!! Quick, someone get this woman some Maroon 5, STAT!

Just B said...

If I know every one of those songs, but did not recognize some of the grammy nominees this year--does that make me a dork?!

Love the image of the little girl in the vfw--been there, done that.

ya might have to spring for it.

hotch--i'm glad you're a dork like me : ) and while my 1st love remains the 80s, i heart me some 70s.

bea--i need to put some of those on my mp3 player : )

only--physically i'm 40; mentally i waffle between 12, 16 and 26 ; )

just b--i don't recognize half of the current singers and wouldn't know the grammy people if i ran into them on the street.


kristin--monster ballads, also something i'd love.


ib--it should be noted that these are not my fave songs (see previous post on what's on my mp3 player).

astarte--i heart maroon 5 too actually : ) but sometimes the inner dork has to come out.

drollgirl--i know right? if it were $29.99 i would, but not five payments of $29.99, that's insane.

Yes, I know all those songs and then some....they remind me of riding the school bus(the drivers always had the radio on an AM station playing the hits)
