The same can be said for Shirley Jones' younger son, Shaun Cassidy.

Well, at least those songs sorta get airplay on Partridge Family & Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries reruns.

Short version of Light My Fire is on 107.9's playist. So is the edited cut of Steppenwolf's Magic Carpet Ride, as well as Creedence Clearwater Revival's Susie Q. Conversely, whenever KPOI plays these songs, they use the full-length versions.

Frank Sinatra=Winners (underrated song he did, one of my favorites)

Kenny Loggins: Heart to Heart

Dan Fogelberg: Hard to Say

Teddy Pendergrass: Close The Door

Jermaine Jackson: Do What you Do

Rolling Stones: Miss You

Stevie Wonder: Overjoyed

Take My Breath Away: Rex Smith

Last Time Like This: Johnny Mathis & Jane Oliver

Come to think of it I dont hear his duet with Deniece Williams as much anymore either, Too Much Too, Little Too Late.

With You I'm Born Again: Billy Preston & Syretta (both passed away recently)

I also liked the Poppy Family which featured Terry & Susan Jacks

Where Evil Grows (1971)
Which Way You're Going Billy (1970)

Terry Jacks went on to record the #1 hit "Seasons in the Sun" (1974)


Susan Jacks recorded the female version of David Gate's "NEVER LET HER GO," titled "NEVER LET HIM GO." It had a following here in Hawaii, but did not chart nationally.

I have an earlier version of "SEASONS IN THE SUN" recorded by Tommy Sands. He autographed it for me at an "oldies" show, the Valentine Hop, produced by "Uncle Tom Moffatt" and headlined by Teddy Randazzo in 1998.

Was listening to the Badfinger classic "Day after Day" the other day in the car, always liked that song, my wife said, "isnt that Joe Jackson", I didn't understand what she meant at first and then it dawned on me that if you listen to Badfinger's "Day after Day" and Joe Jackson's "Breaking Us in Two" and you will definitely find the similarities between the two.

Anybody think "My Sweet Lord" sounds like Chiffon's "He's So Fine"?

George Harrison was, in fact, sued for plagiarism by Bright Tunes Music, the publishing firm that owned the rights to He's So Fine.

Yes I know. But do you and others think they sound alike? I think George had to play his song in court as I recall.

The music in the Badfinger and Joe Jackson songs so much alike, I wonder if Jackson needed permission to use part of the song's riff.

Jonathan King (EVERYONE'S GONE TO THE MOON) recorded a version of SHE'S SO FINE with the MY SWEET LORD music in the backgroup. This was played in court and sank George Harrison's case. He was judged to have committed "unconscious plaigiarism."

This song is included on a Jonathan King LP that I have

Anybody can listen to the two songs back-to-back and judge for themselves. In my opinion? Bright Tunes had a strong case against Harrison, and the court sided with them. The melodic chord progressions are identical, with the only differences being the number of times the melodic motifs are repeated and the transitional phrases.

Interesting question. Keep in mind that civil lawsuits are motivated by $$$$. And enough $$$$ has to be involved in order to make a plagiarism lawsuit worthwhile for the prospective plaintiff and attorneys involved.

Breaking Us In Two was a moderate hit for Jackson. But I don't know if it was a big enough hit in order to make a plagiarism suit viable. The vast majority of those suits target the monster hits that tops the charts and makes millions. For example, Chuck Berry's publisher went after the Beach Boys' Surfin' USA for basically copying the melody of Sweet Little Sixteen,.... AFTER it became a worldwide sensation. Heck, Berry's publisher also went after the Beatles' Come Together, just because it lifted two lines of lyrics from You Can't Catch Me. Flimsy grounds for a plagiarism suit? Maybe. But Come Together was a #1 hit single and one of the tracks on the blockbuster Abbey Road LP, making it a very lucrative and tempting target. (And indeed, Berry's publisher did receive a settlement from John Lennon, the primary composer of that particular song.)

If there's any doubt to the idea that money is a big factor in plagiarism suits, consider this: My Sweet Lord, although composed by George Harrison, was originally given to and recorded by Billy Preston. Preston's version didn't set the charts on fire. Whoever noticed its similarity to He's So Fine probably didn't care at that point. But when Harrison came out with his recording of the same song a year later, BOOM! #1 worldwide hit. Tons of radio airplay. An integral part of Harrison's All Things Must Pass LP, which went gold. (Would have been platinum if the RIAA had such an award in 1971.) Now at that point, does a plagiarism suit make sense? You bet!

Rick Astley is not that bad of a singer, I liked "Cry For Help", from the early
90's, he gew his hair long and no longer had that geeky Richie Cunningham look.

Listen to the late Billy Preston sing "My Sweet Lord" on the George Harrison memorial tribute on Youtube, it is amazing and I can see why he was considered to do that song.

How much do the artists receive every time their song is played at a stadium or arena of a sporting event?

Please, please correct me on this but I don't think they (Queen, Gary Glitter and others) get paid per songs played in the arena, rather some special licensing agreement with ASCAP that pays them a once a year lump sum.

Well - that was a big part of MUZAK's business, but there were many competitors, such as AEI.

That's my understanding as well. The ASCAP/BMI/SESAC/etc. deals are made with the facilities under "public performance" contracts. If they are used as part of a television broadcast, the fees are shared by the networks and the sporting leagues.

Some of my favorite singers have died this year: Levi Stubbs, Paul Davis, Al Wilson.

I loved just about anything Paul Davis sang, COOL NIGHT used to be played on the radio all the time, but I dont hear SWEET LIFE as much as I used to.

How about the Four Tops AIN'T NO WOMAN LIKE THE ONE I GOT or Al Wilson's SHOW & TELL, classics from 35 years ago!

Slyvia: NOBODY

Melissa Manchester: YOU SHOULD HEAR HOW SHE TALKS ABOUT YOU

Skylark: WILDFLOWER

Thom Pace: MAYBE

Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds: FALLING IN LOVE

Hollies: HE AINT HEAVY, HE'S MY BROTHER & THE AIR THAT I BREATHE

Sammy Johns: CHEVY VAN

Shalamar: SECOND TIME AROUND

Steve Perry & Kenny Loggins: DON'T FIGHT IT

These were radio hits at one time or another in Hawaii, 1970s and 80s. Some are not all that forgotten:

Magic Woman Touch - The Hollies
Winners & Losers - Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds
Close Your Eyes - Edward Bear
Precious to Me - Phil Seymour (from Music Mike*)
Pretty Lady - Lighthouse (from Music Mike*)
White Lies Blues Eyes - Bullet (from Music Mike*)
Stop Wait & Listen - Circus (from Music Mike*)

* Check out Music Mike's YouTube site for customized videos to many old hits from the 60s, 70s and 80s. It's cool. You can watch/listen forever.
