    "Careless Whisper" was done by Wham featuring George Michael, released 1984 on Columbia Records.

    "Precious & Few" was recorded and originally released by Sonny Geraci and Climax. The song was a hit in Hawaii during the summer of 1971 before it broke nationally in early 1972. I wonder if The Association ever recorded this track.

    While Rupert Holmes is well known for recording the romantic "Escape (The Pina Colada Song)" and the lesser known, "Him", the guy gained notoriety as a songwriter in 1971. Back then he penned the hit single "Timothy" by The Buoys which has been debated over the years to be a song about cannibalism. Lesser known by Rupert is a great story song he wrote for the same group called "Give Up Your Guns".

    HOLD UP!

    I had to reference the iTunes store according to your line up here......

    Rupert Holmes did "Key Largo" ? Well wasn't that done by Bertie Higgins?
    And Michael Franks recorded "The Pina Colada Song" aka Escape (The Pina Colada Song) " which goes something like If ya like Pinnnnnna Colaaaaaada getting caught in the rain the yiddi yiddi yada...something about red tape etc?
    Well that was definately Rupert Holmes.

    Wow. Some great additions since the last update. Although Valentine's Day has passed, the time is always right for love, so if you need a sweet soundtrack while you browse the 'Threads, I present to you the new and improved "VD@HT" station! If I missed one of your tracks and it's available on the Finetune system, let me know.

    At this time of year the only track that comes to mind is "Love Stinks" by the J. Geils Band.

    You're on my mind like a
    Song on the Radio)

    29 Palms: Robert Plant
    (It comes kinda hard
    when I hear your voice on the radio
    Taking me back down the road
    that leads back to you
    29 Palms - I feel the heat of your desert heart
    Taking me back down the road
    that leads back to you)

    Sweet Surrender: Bread

    Id be a fool to try to escape you
    Maybe I'm beat
    but oh what a sweet surrender)

    Come see about me: Supremes
    (From my arms you maybe out of reach
    But my heart says you're here to keep
    Keeps me crying baby for you
    Keep on crying baby for you
    So won't you hurry
    Come on boy, come see about me

    Feel your love: Neil Young
    I really want the sun,
    want the sun to rise,
    I really want
    to end the night.
    I really wanna feel,
    wanna feel your love.
    I wanna feel your love.)
