I remember taking our kids to Halloween parties hosted by people we knew, but only once or twice taking them trick or treating in our neighborhood, always hovering in the background, half-trepidatiously (is that a word?).
For dVerse Poetics --I couldn't get Lillian's birthday website link to work either, so I simply chose a memorable hit from my childhood. Grand Funk Railroad's "The Loco-Motion" is the first No. 1 song I remember from my childhoodin the 70's. It seemed to be everywhere on the radio all the time. But the song had been recorded first by Little Eva and been No. 1 in the 60's; later in the 80's Kylie Minogue took it to No. 3 on the Billboard.Not bad for a song about a train dance, chug-a-chuga!Click on Mr. Linky to join in!
The 70’s made a lot of commotion The worst in hair, the worst in fashion I ran around in patchy jeans and braids You were cool in long hair and good grades Then one day the neighborhood was jammin’ People snappin’ fingers and gyratin’ Kids in diapers and granddads in knickers All fancyin’ the music, ignoring the snickers “Come on, come on,” “chug-a-chuga,” swinging hips “Groovy!” “the loco-motion” on everyone’s lips!
