The first time I ever heard this song, I was sitting in a bar in Tijuana - The Blue Note on Avenida Revoluçion - and the house band was trying to learn the changes and words.
I remember going out on a hot day and pipe-wrenching a fire hydrant to, "Jerimiah Was A Bullfrog." HH
The station our town pool played did not play soul music, which was my favorite (Sam and Dave, Wilson Pickett, James Brown, etc.) A constant stream of the Beach Boys, Jan and Dean, Bobby Darrin, Lesley Gore, early Beatles, etc.)
In my mid-teens friends were guards and cashiers at the village's public pool, and I took care of the outdoor tennis courts scattered around the village. We had epic after-hours pool parties and indoor tennis games. Why the police didn't throw us out for partying at the pool at 2am I have no idea. They stopped by, we told them we were employees, and they let us be.
Anyway, this played during a particularly memorable moment.
This actually was huge in my early public pool days:
Man, that brought back a bunch of memories. lol. WLUP had a broadcast truck that would DJ/live show from the parking lot. Everybody had a black "loop" shirt... and WLS. Animal Stories!
you’re older than me. I’m Gen X
This was the jam in summer of 1997.
I’m a little older than you. That’s a good song.
I don't recall going to a public pool since I was about 6 or 7.
I used to go to this one, but it was rectangular at the time. It has been torn out and rebuilt since the '70s. I don't remember any music.
I know the bridge. It's on Babcock, the one with the "No Diving Off Bridge" sign.
I always wondered who made that sign necessary, now I know LOL.
