Haven't had much time this week, so here are my abbreviated thoughts.


GOLD - The Sunrays.  Only because it tries so hard and it does have that early Beach Boys vibe.

SILVER - White Plains.  Close second, a cutie. (Last week it was diamonds, this week hearts ... what's next?)

BRONZE - Edison Lighthouse.  Rosemary clearly has green fingers. (Darren, I remember Rosemary here.)

TIN - First Class.  A bit Disney. I love how when I open this on my phone, the little photo of the man's head that posted this video lands squarely on the shoulders of the lady to the left. 

Thanks, Darren.



And more of this lovely young lady if you enjoyed that.

Tin - My Baby Loves Lovin’ (White Plains - 1970) (37)
(2G, 4S, 6B, 5T)


Aggregate: 170 = 17 voters 


Thanks again to all who voted, and thanks very much to DAN for being my scrutineer.


The placings went the same way as my votes. That’s unusual. DAN and Tom picked the same order.
 
It was the first and probably only appearance for all these acts, unless someone uses ‘Andrea’, I guess, or Tony Burrows, now 76, makes a comeback! 
 
‘Beach Baby’ is a chance for the Silver Play-Off. 
 
‘My Baby Loves Lovin’’ is very likely for the Tin Play-Off. 
 
Thanks to everyone for getting into it. I always try to make my weeks very much about the songs and acts on offer.
 

Please support Deb’s Week 38.

Darren, I do certainly think one reason your and my musical tastes vary is generational. I grew up on Top 40 AM radio during the 1960s, so I know all those pop/rock/soul hits very well and like most of them. By the 70s, after FM and progressive/alternative rock had come into its own, I was ready to move from teen-oriented Top 40 radio to FM/Alternative rock radio and recordings. Many of those groups didn't particularly seek to become teen-oriented Top 40 hits; rather, it was more about the albums themselves, long-form songs that Top 40 radio wouldn't play, alternative and experimental types of rock, emerging hard rock, country rock, Southern rock, art rock, etc. Nevertheless, I still paid attention to Top 40 radio part of the time to see what good new music and artists existed on pop radio. 

By the way, Darren, I see you noticed that our vote rankings were exactly the same this week. Perhaps not always such different preferences after all, at least within a particular musical style.

And I suspect I'd really enjoy your live "Sounds of the Sixties" shows too, given how much I enjoyed that era's music and most of its artists when I was a teenager.
