Saturday 9: I'd Really Love To See You Tonight

Saturday 9: I'd Really Love to See You Tonight (1976)

Unfamiliar with this week's song? Hear it here.

1) This song is about a guy who, out of the blue, phones an ex. Have you ever spontaneously phoned or emailed a former lover? Has an ex ever reached out to you?

A. No, I can't say I have ever done that, nor has an ex ever done that with me. Considering my "exes" would all have been from high school, this is not a surprise.

2) He suggests walking through the park, taking a drive along the beach, or watching TV. Do any of those suggestions appeal to you right now?

A. I wouldn't mind a nice long drive. It's a little chilly outside right now for a walk. I'm not a big TV fan.

3) "England Dan" got his nickname because he was a passionate Beatles fan and would affect a British accent when he talked about his favorite group. Are you good at imitating accents?

A. No, but I do seem to have a knack for imitating certain people.

4) Dan met John Colley when they were high school classmates in Dallas. When they were still kids, they agreed that "John Ford Coley" would be a better stage name. Think back to your high school days. Which of your friends daydreamed along with you?

A. I played in a pop Top 40 band in high school. I guess the five of us all had dreams of bigger things back then.

5) After the duo disbanded, "England Dan" went to Nashville, billed himself by his real name -- Dan Seals -- and recorded country music. Who is your favorite country performer?

A. I don't listen to much country music, but I'll go with Dolly Parton.

6) Today John Ford Coley lives in TN. He performs occasionally and raises horses. Have you ever been to TN?

A. I have visited that state, yes.

7) In 1975, when this song was popular, Foster Grant Sunglasses had a suggested retail price of $5/pair. Do you buy sunglasses more for fashion or utility?

A. Utility. I don't see the point in expensive anything if a cheap version will do just as well. I don't need a Rolex if a Timex keeps time the same.

8) The most popular movie of 1975 was Jaws. Have you seen it?

A. No. I don't plan to see it, either.

9) Random question: Excluding anyone related to you by blood or marriage, what man are you closest to?

A. My two nephews, my husband's sister's boys. They are both grown men now. Oh wait, they're related by blood. My husband's cousin? Does that count as a blood relationship? My brother-in-law? Those probably don't work. Let me think. Hmm. I don't think there is anyone, really, except maybe my former news editor and we haven't talked in months. As far as I know I'm not related to him. There are other men I know and see but I don't consider them close, really.

  1. "As far as I know I'm not related to him." That made me smile.

  2. I am usually the same as you when it comes to expensive vs. cheap, but since I get prescription sunglasses they aren't cheap to begin with so I may as well get the Ray Ban frames I love so much.
    I bet it was fun to be in a band in high school. I remember a few guys who were in bands in school and we all were a little in awe of them and treated them like minor celebrities.
    Enjoy your Saturday!

  3. Dolly is one of my favorites also. She is just amazing to me. Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend.

  4. I love Dolly. Every single thing about her.

  5. I hated to pay $50 for my sunglasses, but it's difficult to find the kind that go over your glasses and these were the only ones I could find.

  6. My goodness, I love the header photos on your blog. Gorgeous. Great answers, and I agree with Dolly. She's a treasure. Have a great week!
