Not sure, but I think this is a song about a guy who has his breath taken away.

Agreed but there are some artists that cringe when you bring up some of their past songs.

At 73 yr old does Rod Stewart regret singing "Do you think I'm Sexy?"

You know these guys have like 4 times the keys than the average band but they are so so wrong. That lead patch though.

I will say Tennille turned into some sort of eye candy after this lame Prince Valiant/Emo Philips do.

That Association song is cool, I think a B level band out of NC covered it in the 1990's.

Double ditto on Rufus!

And say or think what you want about Daryl & Toni but they will always be at the top on my list with regard to the nicest and most caring people I've ever worked for in this sh*tty biz.

Sometime in the middle 80's I was subbing on a gig at the Desert Inn in Vegas for a month with them. I decided to drive up so I could bring my rhodes and bike with me to practice during the day, and get in some early rides before it got too hot.

Well my '80 something Toyota pickup broke down about 50 miles out of Barstow. There wasn't any decent repair facilities around so I had to be towed back to Barstow. This was 2 days day before we opened, so I was freaking out ! I called the road manager and within an hour he called me back saying they were sending a van out to get me. Within 3 hours they picked up me and all my stuff. It took almost a week for the repair. They not only paid for the repair but for the guy to drive my truck out to Vegas and then a rental for him to get back. They barely knew me, I wasn't the regular guy ! I had only done one rehearsal with them in LA. This is literally unheard of in those kind of circles.

Musically...man they were harmless. wink And both were huge Jazz fans.

IMHO an era of music should be judged by its best music not its worst.
