The soundtrack of my life

Long about the 6th grade,or maybe the 5th,..hey!..it was a long time ago okay!..stop brow beating me.
Anyhormones,one day in class,I was passed a note from the kid next to me,which came from the kid next to him,which came from the girl in front of her,(you know how it works),which read;

I like you.Do you like me?

And there was a 'Yes' and 'No' checkbox for my shopping convenience.
My very first love letter!
Which I suppose was really a 'like' letter,..but still.
Linda Brown,(I swear,that was her real name),was a skinny,brown haired,brown eyed student in my social studies class.
Quiet,and shy,and pretty as a speckled pup.
I was so young,and so busy trying to excel in class, that it hadn't yet occurred to me that girls,when all is said and done,can be quite pleasant.
Fascinating,even.
Today's Friday video was a toss up between 'Mrs. Brown you've got a lovely daughter',..and this one.



'I'm telling you now'
Freddy and the Dreamers

Because I'm a rat, licking my lips over a little schadenfreude, I find this NEXT post - what's that other word? Redemptive. It's sweet and I'm going to bask in its glow. You must've been just the boy for girls to fall in like with. You've still got that charm. And I'm not even TRYING to flatter you.

I like Linda Brown, what a set of freckles she had to pass a note like that, and how thorough to give you 2 options. If it was me I would have given you one option....yes...

So know I know where the boy bands of the 90's got their moves.

That is now not know...I hate those two words..now know...blah blah

The choreography seems to be derivative of...er, Niginsky?

So sweet, Linda Brown.

I know Mrs. Brown you've got a lovely daughter which I love but enjoyed these goofballs as Raj has deemed them. I had never heard the song before, thanks for that.

Have a great weekend!

oh for the days when the geek look was considered sexy! Did Freddy and the boys ever have another hit? I don't honestly remember.

And being a little gentleman, of course you would have said Yes!

booda baby- It was sweet!
I hung on to that note in a scrap book for decades.Sadly,it was lost during Hurricane Ellen(one of my ex's).

Sage- I thought it was a pretty bold move myself at the time...I liked that! ;)

jan- HA!..That dance is actually called 'The Freddy'.

danielle- Linda was a sweet kid.
'Mrs.Brown' always reminds me of her.
It's not surprising you haven't heard this before,these guys weren't around long.
Have a terrific weekend yourself!

monica- Well I like you!..
Do you like me?
_ yes
_ hell yes
(I'm taking Sage's advice) ;)

willym- They had one for sure called,'Do the Freddy'..yep,that's the dance they are doing in the video,which if I recall,the press hated their 'Jerry Lewis' histrionics so much,that it was the reason they faded from existence.

billy P.- Fond memories also make for a happy head!..nothin' like it.

citymouse- Ha!..made ya go'Awwwww'..My work here is done. :)

My 12 year old grandson came home with a similar note last week. There is nothing sweeter than a first crush.

 
At 7:04 PM , Blogger Sling said...

yellowdog G- Jackie Brown?..That's like an action hero name!
Cool birthday tribute.I love Herman's Hermits.

mom- Hang on to it!..It will be a fine rememberance one day. :)

Those old check-box noted were a hoot. "Will you go with me? Check yes or no." was the most common one at my elementary school.

 
At 8:39 AM , Blogger Sling said...

Citizen- ..and I'll bet you got a shoebox full o' them!
It was customary at my elementary school
to give your steady a St.Christopher medal,which was odd,because it wasn't a Catholic school.They were worn with pride!
My school went from kindergarten,to the 8th grade.The house I grew up in shared a common fence with the school yard,so for 8 years all I had to do to get to school was jump the fence in my back yard...good times.

Ahhhhhhhh, that was such a lovely story. And a groovy song too.

 
At 2:52 PM , Blogger Lorraine said...

It is NOT easy to play an instrument and dance like that, lete me tell you.

Sweet story, btw.

 
At 5:53 PM , Blogger Auld Hat said...

The geek look is no longer considered sexy? hmpf. Nice scrolly thingy (;

 
At 5:55 PM , Blogger Sling said...

kimberly ann- It was a groovy song then,and it's groovy now..Bitchen!

lorraine- Oh,don't I know it.
I can't even stand up and play at the same time!
Really,I can't use a guitar strap.It's all awkward.Hey!..Strap on guitar!
..sorry..I drifted for a minute.

 
At 6:04 PM , Blogger Sling said...

HAT!!!-
"Ohhhhhh,sit right back and I'll tell a tale,
a tale of a hat comes back!
That started in ..someplace North of Seattle,
and took a long time to,..crap.
I really need to work on this whole,"sponteneously bursts into song" thing.

Sling you mongrel, you made me laugh so hard I spilt alcohol over the keyboard. I had to get up quickly - negotiate the big red dog who lovingly sits at my feet and find a towel to save my keyboard... no itwasn't dark brown liqour... its Kardonnay Aussie style... still good tho but a little less impact so I don't fall down and get found a wek later...you know...Tee hee...those guys - those legs going out sideways in unison... can you imagine practising...their mums and dads must have had their heads buried in their hands...oh dearie me...

 
At 11:44 PM , Blogger hello, my name is danny. said...

as kids we are so much better at forming personal relationships, no?

and at performing those kinds of dance moves!

 
At 8:07 AM , Blogger LostInCO said...

Groovy song, but what a wacky dance!

 
At 3:44 PM , Blogger jp said...

I got one of those love letter checkbox thingies once. The options she gave me were:

__ No
__ No
__ Please remain at least 20 feet away from me at all times.

Oh how sweet. Made me wonder what Linda's doing now.

My first note like that, not counting my best friend Dale from 1st grade, was my neighbor Kenny. What a jerk: "Dear Cowbell, I like you, if you like me. Do you like me? Do you want to go to first base?"
Little Bastard.

Luckily, my first boyfriend, the next year, was an absolute gem.
