"Today I Met The Boy I'm Gonna Marry" by Darlene Love.

OK, back to the 60's: This Hawthorne, CA native will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame later on this month. She joined the Blossoms under Phil Spector in '62 while still in high school. Her biggest SOLO hit came in '63 with a Powers/Greenwich/Spector composition which peaked at #39. Spector paid her $3,000 for the rights to the song. She played Danny Glover's wife on all 4 "Lethal Weapon" movies. Artist? Solo hit?

Yesterday's answer: "Something In The Way She Moves" by James Taylor. Quite possibly my fave JT tune. The guitar work is beyond sublime. Check out JT's James Olson guitar on the video - HEAVEN! (Of course, I might be just a little biased towards Olsons!). It inspired George to write "Something".
