"From A Distance"

OK, more 80's: Julie Gold wrote this '85 ballad in 2 hours while working at HBO in NYC "...about the difference between the way things seem and the way things are". It gained exposure when recorded by Nanci Griffith in '87 and by The Byrds in '90. #2 hit for Bette Midler in '90; Grammy for Song Of The Year in '91 during the 1st Persian Gulf War. Played at the opening ceremony for the '96 Olympics in Atlanta.

Yesterday's answer: Wayne Fontana and The Mindbenders. "Game Of Love". "Groovy Kind Of Love". "Game Of Love" was Wayne Fontana and The Mindbenders' first US #1 hit. Killer cover by Cheryl Wheeler on her self-titled first album. Fontana left the group in the middle of a concert in '65. "Groovy Kind Of Love" was their 1st Fontana-less hit. 10cc's 1st hit was indeed "I'm Not In Love" - #1 in the UK and #2 in the US earning them a $1M advance.

OKEY, para credito extra - alguien se acuerda de la version en espanol de "Game Of Love". falta tu calor pero tengo frio...yo tengo frio en el corazon...y quiero sol sol sol sol tra la la la la la! Quien la canto? From Lida Enid Muniz: ‎"yo se que hace calor pero siento frio, pues tu amor que un dia fue mio desaparecio...yo tengo frio en el corazon, vivo sin tu calor, y quiero sol, sol, sol, sol, tra la la la la la!!" ( Si me ves con mis compa~eras cantando esto en el trabajo, te mueres! (Quien la cantaba? Papo Roman!)
