The Hall of Fame Inductees for this year have been announced
, so I thought I'd do a little post on each one of them. I'm going to do them one at a time.
Let's start with the least known of the inductees - The Dells:
I recognize one song by this band - Oh, What a Night
. No, no. It's not that Four Seasons song that gets stuck in your head for days at a time until you want to take a sledgehammer to your skull. It's actually a rather nice song. A little doo-wop, a little crooning, not a bad number. Unfortunately it's one of those tunes that brings back memories of olive green shag rugs and my parents' cocktail parties. Every time this song came on the radio (CBS FM, all oldies, all the time), the whole gang of drunken hipster parents would sing and that one part
That's whyyyyy I. Love. You. So.
See, it had this staccato sort of thing going on and, well, drunken parents decked out in groovy clothes and bouffant hairdos drinking all kinds of fancy drinks is just frightening to a young child.
Anyhow, congratulations to the Dells.
