Treasure Island Oldies: Andy Kim - Song of the Week

Hi music fans,

The Song of the Week on Michael Godin's Treasure Island Oldies for the week beginning August 6, 2007 is Andy Kim's wonderful version of "Baby, I Love You." Although this song, written by Jeff Barry with Ellie Greenwich and Phil Spector, was originally recorded by The Ronettes, who had a Top Forty hit with it, there are many folks who consider Andy's the definitive version - and you can count me among them! Please click on the link below to visit the Treasure Island Oldies blog and to view a cool video of Andy performing this classic.

Jeff Barry's Birthday Card!

Hi, Jeff Barry fans,

It's that time of year again - legendary Brill Building songwriter/producer Jeff Barry has a birthday coming up, on Tuesday, April 3rd, and as usual I'm preparing my annual online presentation for him in the form of a virtual "GREETING CARD", to which Jeff's fans, friends and colleagues from all over the globe can post their birthday wishes. For those of you who'd like to add your voices to the collective HAPPY BIRTHDAY, please click on the link above.

Feel free to add some personal recollections if you'd like ... perhaps you could mention songs of Jeff's that were meaningful to you, or when you first became a fan of his music, or some memories of knowing/working with Jeff (for those of you who've had that pleasure)or other anecdotes you'd like to share with him and with the world. No registration or login is necessary to post on the board.

I hope to get at least one person posting on this special birthday board for each year that Jeff's been alive! So, please, if you're a fan of "Be My Baby" or "Baby, I Love You" or "Sugar, Sugar" or "Leader of the Pack" or "Hanky Panky" or "Da Doo Ron Ron" or "Chapel of Love" or "Doo Wah Diddy Diddy" or "Tell Laura I Love Her," or any of Jeff's dozens of hit songs, please visit the forum and add your greetings. Jeff will be surprised and touched to see lots of posts and feel the love and good vibrations from all of his fans and friends. Let's make this a great birthday year for him!
