You are.









LOL. Joking of course.
BTW- I never really thought Davy Crockett would have been much of a ballad man, but how can you argue with the buckskin buckaleer/King of the Wild Frontier? Love that song!

I remember that song Flip (Boogie Fever). It was around the onset of the Disco craze. Our lead guitar players favorite line was "Disco is to music what finger painting is to art". LOL

And I was in High School when Hotel california came out.

I remember everyone freakin' out cause Joe Walsh joined up with the Eagles. They were thinkin' he was going to ruin them. One of the best moves they ever made if you ask me. Of course I remember them backing up Linda Rhondstat.

"Poor People of Paris", by Les Baxter?!?! I'd hoped it was at leaast something I'd heard of, if not something hip. I guess that's what I get for being born April 1.

"There iiiiiisss... a hoouuussssee... in New Orleans..."

Eric Burdon & the Animals on 8/31/64.

As a former Beatles maniac, I could have sworn that "She Loves You" topped the charts. Their single release was eight days before, if memory serves me right, at least in Europe... Anyway, I also like Mr. Burdon ;-)

"Yesterday" by a fabulous foursome. Or was it just Paul with a strings ensemble?

Like I always say, I'm never one year older than I was yesterday.

So much for the US #1 - for our Dutch audience, this is the Wikipedia pagewith Top 40 #1 hits (starting in 1965). For some silly reason, the hits are ordered alphabetically by artist. At the bottom of the page, you can look them up by year.

So it wasn't the Beatles with "Yesterday", which topped the charts only in November, but the Rolling Stones with "(I can't get no) Satisfaction".

Sugar Shack was penned by a guy who lives (or lived) in Craig, Colorado. I don't recall his name, but he owned a club in that town and the bands stayed at his place. I played there in '83.

As for the song, if I recall it was a typical teenage bubblegum tune from the early 1960s..

"I'm leaving it up to you" by Dale and Grace.

Unfortunately, my birth was around an hour after JFK was murdered, so nobody really cared what was #1 on the charts that day.

Sugar Shack was written by Keith McCormack and Faye Voss and perfored by Jimmy Gilmer & the Fireballs. Interestingly, the Fireballs, without Jimmy Gilmer, were a Tex/Mex instrumental band, similar to the Ventures, featuring George Tomsco, who was apparently an influential guitar player in that style. Tomsco also played on some posthumous Buddy Holly releases. The surf tune, Bulldog, is by the Fireballs as well as the tune Torquay. McCormack, in addition to writing tunes for Gilmer and the Fireballs, was a member of the The String-A-Longs, another Tex/Mex group, and also played guitar on some Buddy Holly releases. The String-A-Longs, Fireballs, and Buddy Holly, all recorded at Norman Petty's studio in Clovis, New Mexico.

See if the memory stick kicks in...

"..Thereís a crazy little shack beyond the tracks
And evírybody calls it the sugar shack
Well, itís just a coffeehouse and itís made out of wood
Expresso coffee tastes mighty good
Thatís not the reason why Iíve got to get back
To that sugar shack, whoa baby
To that sugar shack.

Thereís this cute little girlie, sheís aíworkiní there
A black leotard and her feet are bare
Iím gonna drink a lotta coffee, spend a little cash
Make that girl love me when I put on some trash
You can understand why Iíve got to get back
To that sugar shack, whoa baby
To that sugar shack, yeah honey
To that sugar shack, whoa yes
To that sugar shack.

Now that sugar shack queen is aímarried to me, yeah yeah
We just sit around and dream of those old memories
Ah, but one of these days Iím gonna lay down tracks
In the direction of that sugar shack
Just me and her yes weíre gonna go back
To that sugar shack,
Whoa uh oh
To that sugar shack, yeah honey
To our sugar shack

(Fade)

Yeh, yeh, yeh, our sugar shack .."
