Then again, maybe I am old [Jul. 22nd, 2006|08:43 am]
spinthemoon
I made a comment about Bobby Sherman in one of my friend's blogs. And she didn't know who Bobby Sherman was. And this is a grown woman. With teenage children. So it's not like she just fell off the turnip truck. I mean, maybe she did just fall off the turnip truck - she does live in a pretty rual area, although I don't think they grow turnips in Maine - but she's not exactly a teenybopper. And I suspect that the fact I just used the term "teenybopper" seals the deal on that "I am old" thing.

But, seriously...Bobby Sherman????? Not knowing Bobby Sherman? The first boy-man man-boy who set my heart aflutter? He of the crooked grin and the blue blue eyes and the floppy bangs? Who played the adorable shy youngest son on Here Come the Brides with that adorable stutter, except for that one episode where he stopped stuttering, but then became kind of a jerk, and nearly lost the girl he loved, but then started stuttering again and got all sweet and nice again, and she liked him again? How can anyone not know this? How? How?

And as it just so happens, today is Bobby Sherman's birthday. Do not ask me how I know these things, youngling. When you are old and wise, you too shall know the secrets of the universe.

Happy Birthday, Bobby!!

I thought I was old, but I guess not old enough.

I still got nothing. BUT...

I can soooo see why you had a crush on him. But the eyes are more violet than anything. He is adorable.

And of course we grow turnips. Some of the best if I may add.

I notice, oh wise one, when you mentioned it being his birthday, you neglected to add his age.

Re: I still got nothing. BUT...

Isn't "best turnips" something of an oxymoron?

And I thought you were going to register...hmmmm?

Talk About A Blast From The Past

OMYGODDESS--I still have that album, he sang "A Tine for Us" the theme from Franco Zeffirelli's "Romeo & Juliet" (which I ragged my Mother into going to see with me because it was rated "R" and both of us wound up being shocked) and he sang the theme to "Here Come the Brides" on it too and his name in the series was Jeremy and his Lady Fair was Candy, I liked to have DIED when they canceled that series, I thought I would NEVER love anyone the way I loved him, David Cassidy never even came CLOSE.

Never MIND how old he'd be, what was it, on the cusp of Cancer & Leo was it?

Mistress Spinning Moon, noticed have you that Time Travel between Memory and Dream sometimes truly bittersweet can be?

Kes,

He was a dreamboat

And he's aged well, too.

I read an article one time (in Time or People, I believe) about this young woman in backwoods somewhere who was in love with Bobby Sherman and wrote to him every day, and believed that they would someday marry. And this was in 1992 or so. I wonder if she ever got to meet him?

Huh

If you take away the shag, add in a nose piercing and a bit of darker eye liner....ah...never mind.

Turnips are grown in Maine though I actually do remember Bobby Sherman from back when I lived there. My friend Julie, who is a mere 5 years older than I, was crazy about him. When the song, "Julie, Do You Love Me?" sung by BS came out, she went nuts. She Today, give her 3 drinks and she'll sing the entire song for you.

That Song

I even remember THAT one: "Julie, Julie, Julie, do ya love me? Julie, Julie, Julie, do you care?" I won't be pathetic and quote the whole entire thing.

The first time I heard it on the radio the reception was really crappy and I thought he was singing "Judy, Judy, Judy-" like all those comedians doing Cary Grant. And THAT reminds of that song by Tom Jones--"My, my, my Delilah! Why, why, why Delilah?"And the absolute worst thing about this whole mess is that it's going to give me earworms for the rest of the day, at least.

Oh, well. At least it's not Jim Carey doing Grace Slick.

Kes,

Re: That Song

Oops, sorry about that!

Hey. Could be worse. Could be the theme to "The Banana Splits" show. Which I am trying very hard NOT to think about in any sort of clarity at this point. La, la, la, la, la lemon, oh, great now THAT reminds me of Bert & Ernie on "Sesame Street". I'd better quit while I'm ahead. (If you can call this ahead...)

Bobby Sherman

Here I am trying to decide if I want to enter the world of blogging when I do a search for Bobby Sherman to see if there are any others out there talking about him and your journal pops up. I've always been a big Bobby fan and to this day still am. Were you aware there is a current fan club (of which I am a member), and three websites one of which is very active? Check out www.peacelovebobby.com and you can find out all about what he's been up to lately. I recently purchased the Here Come The Brides first season dvd set and am falling in love all over again! My name is Julie, so I'll bet you can guess what my favorite song is LOL! Peace, love, Bobby forever!!

Re: Bobby Sherman

Hey, alright! More fan sites to check out! Thanks for the tip!

("A Time For Us" is still my absolute favorite. Sigh.)

Not Exactly the Night Train to the Big Adios

Sooo, which Monkee are we talking about here, Mike Nesmith and a coff of cuppee or Curious George and a Banana Daiquiri?

I can't say I don't love the Monkees (especially that perennial favorite "I'm Gonna Buy Me A Dog"); "Music Box" is the truly definitive Monkees collection, BUT I would take Tom Jones singing "Thunderball" over Mike Nesmith singing "Last Train to Clarksville" any day--wait a minute, Mickey sang the lead on that. Oh, well--you get the drift.

Or maybe it's just the mental anticipation of a young Sean Connery sort of association thing. If that makes any sense.

Kes,
wishing for a really good Classic Rock station

Of course, Mike Nesmith! A good, old Texas Boy! And who doesn't love the son of the inventor of "Whiteout"?
