lol. i used to give my dad old spice every year when i was in grade school. i guess a lot of people did that.
"Patches"! You rule! ROTFLMAO. You cd add "Strokin'," too, which is kinda the gateway to fatherhood.
Hearing "Dat Dere" brought tears to my eyes, it reminded me so much of my dad. He played the hell out of that record when we were growing up, and taught us to appreciate jazz. My dad's been gone 4 years now, and I miss him terribly. Hearing that song makes me remember what a wonderful man he was, and how much he shared with me.
I've never heard that version of "Patches." Depressing song. Talk about having to step up to the plate.Anyway, "Happy Fathers Day!"
^ General Johnson of the Chairmen actually wrote "Patches." It's my choice for THE most sentimental soul record of all times. (Lugubrious, even.)But I've always loved it.
i used to give my dad old spice every year when i was in grade school.Me too, Judith. As a little kid, I used to just love smelling all the different after-shave lotions on my daddy's dresser. Aqua Velva and whatnot...
fullnelson, thanks for that.
Shoooo, Old Spice smelled good! L
I swear that said Clarence Carter. I have such hilarious memories of that song, I think my mind saw it. Listening to it cleared that up.
I haven't heard "Patches" in ages. I used to love that song. What a blast from the past! Thank you.It's a shame that there aren't as many good Daddy songs as there are Momma songs. All the English-language radio station here could come up with yesterday was "Papa Was a Rolling Stone." I think they missed the point.
