She would be 64 years old now

I just bought a song on iTunes that was one of my faves when it came out. You kids think that "cougars" are a new phenomenon but I can tell you they're not. I grew up having crushes on older women. My first grade teacher, my seventh grade English teacher, My sophmore English teacher. Older women. Teachers.

In the song "Summer, The First Time" by Bobby Goldsboro,

"I was 17, she was 31"

Other songs from those days I bought.

Bobby Gentry's Ode to Billie Joe
Glen Campbell's Wichita Lineman

I also worked on some tunes from the high school/late 70's years


And of course who could forget the legendary Tres Gallos Mexicanos?

Jorge Negrete
Javier Solis
Pedro Infante

Those from CD's lent to me by a friend. The Three Mexican Roosters. I'm here to tell you that these guys saw some serious tail. Tragically, they all died young too.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going back to work on my music collection.

You need more auf der maur :D

and Kim Mitchell.
