I've always loved Rock Around With Ollie Vee. Such a great track. There are some unusual tracks on your playlist.;)

You’ve got me singing these greal old songs! (Mickey and Sylvia, indeed!) I have eclectic tastes in movies, music, books. Of the 2,000 movies in my home film library, all your faves are there, including “Clerks” and “Heathers,” Enjoyed the playlists. BJ at DemWit

LL Cool Joe: "Rock Around with Ollie Vee" is one of my fave Buddy Holly tunes. I discovered it via a Buddy Holly "best of" I had on cassette back in the 80s.

I think the "one-hit wonder" aspect made this show playlist a little more unusual than normal. As a heads up, this coming Friday I am doing one-hit wonders from the 70s, 80s, and 90s.

B.J.: Earlier this year, I watched "Clerks" for the first time in years. It still holds up. "Heathers" has also stood the test of time.

Since you love eclectic music, you'd probably enjoy my show. If you are ever near a computer from 6 to 9 pm EST, you can tune in online by visiting the

Hey Bulldog. I mean Malcolm.

I'd almost forgotten that song and my sister had the original album. Played that song constantly and I never got tired of it.

Nice blog and continued success to you.

AT 101: Thanks for stopping by and props for getting the "Hey Bulldog" reference at the top of my comment box. It's one of my favorite Beatles songs and fit perfectly when I was trying to come up with a line for the comments box.
