Saturday 9: Don't You Care?

Saturday 9: Don't You Care? (1967)

If you're not familiar with today's song, you can hear it here.

1) What's something that seems to fascinate everyone else, but you just don't care about?

A. Celebrity gossip. 

2) The lyrics refer to "the times we cried and laughed." Which did you do more recently, cry or laugh?

A. Laugh, I suppose, though my husband told me I was crying in my sleep last night. I am not sure if that counts.

3) In the song, our hero seems surprised that his girlfriend doesn't believe him. Are you more believing and trusting, or suspicious and skeptical?

A. I think I am more skeptical now. I used to be quite trusting but life has taught me there is little to trust. 

4) This song is just over two minutes long, which seems short for a song but awful long when Sam is waiting for her chicken soup to heat in the microwave. What's the last thing you heated in a microwave?

A. Bob's Mill Gluten Free Hot Cereal.

5) This week's band, The Buckinghams, was one of the first acts to perform at Chicago's premiere summer festival, The Taste of Chicago.* Let's think ahead: Have you made any plans for Summer 2016?

A. I haven't even made plans for next week.

6) In 1967, when this song was popular, Rolling Stone magazine published its first issue. What magazines do you subscribe to? Do they arrive in the mail, or do you read them online?

A. I receive Reader's Digest, Taste of Home, and Oprah, at the moment, in the mail. I have been letting my subscriptions lapse because I wasn't reading them.

7) Country star/American Idol judge Keith Urban was born in 1967. Are you watching the final season of American Idol?

A. I have never seen a single episode of American Idol.

8) In 1967, the average cost of a movie ticket was $1.25. By 2015, it had risen $8.60. What's the last movie you saw in a theater?

A. Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

9) Random question: Sam's taking everyone out to dinner and she's buying. Would you prefer the steak or the lobster?

A. I'd prefer the lobster but I've developed an allergy to shellfish in the last few years. I don't eat much read meat, either. Could I have a piece of chicken?

*Though back in 1970, it was called ChicagoFest.
