Quote of the Day: Author! Author!

Ivan: [finding Alice at a table with three champagne flutes; a single aspirin is in front of each] Why all the champagne?
Alice: I need it to take the aspirin.
Ivan: Why do you need aspirin?
Alice: Oh, champagne gives me a headache.

Happy 79th Birthday to Dyan Cannon!!!

Remember That Song: 1/4/16

Can you name the artist and song:

A kiss in the rain till the sun shine through
I tried to deny it but I’m still in love with you


Last Songs:
It feels like ages, but the last time we had Remember That Song, we were wrapping up ’70s week:

Song 1
“Feeling That Way” by Journey from Infinity (1977)

When the summer’s gone
She’ll be there standing by the light
Once she’s been to where she’s gone to
She should know wrong from right


Song 2
“Bicycle Race” by Queen from Jazz (1978)


Song 3
“Sweet and Simple” by Journey from Evolution (1979)

Don’t be lonely,
Oh, my friends, forget the past.
Sweet as sugar,
When you’re movin’


Song 4
“Stone Cold Crazy” by Queen from Sheer Heart Attack (1974)

There’s a rumour going round, gotta clear outta town
I’m smelling like a dry fish bone
Here come the Law, gonna break down the door, gonna carry me
away once more
