Day 29 — A song from your childhood

Ah, sweet sweet childhood -- a succession of idylls, each more fondly remembered than the last. One idyll was an impossibly hot upstairs room where my sisters overplayed the 8-track of Peter Frampton Comes Alive, which included whatever this is; a second idyll was a different impossibly hot shared bedroom across town where my step-brother overplayed a vinyl LP by The Rolling Stones -- whichever one has "Miss You" on it. Neither of these recordings will ever leave my head completely, and all things considered, it could be worse. Or so I assume.

It was also roughly this same time when I got on sing-along terms with the soundtrack to the Olivia Newton-John - John Travolta edition of Grease. That, too, is not leaving my memory any time soon, though I wouldn't mind if it did.

This is part of the 30-Day Music Meme.
