Music we grew up withPosted Tuesday, July 20, 2010, at 12:07 PM
Today it was "The Letter" performed by the Boxtops. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQaUs5J2w... Jefferson Airplane is given credit for the lyrics on the web but here is an interesting tidbit that seems to contradict that. http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=1... Can anyone clear this up for me?
I remember this song being popular on the jukebox at the "T Room" at MTSU in 1967-68. Every time I hear it I immediately flash back to that smoky little room in the bottom of the James Union Building. I think I just remember it as the Student Union Building (SUB) but that could be confused with the current building.
Anyone else remember it? I can't remember if the room was smoky from cigarette or frying hamburgers, but when they closed it, the "magic" was gone. I eventually adapted to the new one, but it never had that close feeling that came from the old one. (Duh, it was probably at least 6 times smaller)Thought I would say that for you.
Anyway, that is where I go each time I hear The Letter.
Did you have a song in the brain today?
