Unfamiliar with this week's song? Hear it here.
1. In this song, our hero tells Susan that "no other girl could ever take the place of you." Crazy Sam feels that no other earmuffs could ever take the place of the ones she left in restaurant coat room last month. Tell us about something you recently broke, lost or misplaced.
Well, I didn't break it. Chris did. He broke the screen on my phone. :(
2. When this song was first released back in 1968, the name Susan was very popular. According to the Social Security Administration, it was one of the top 10 baby girl names of the 1940's 1950's and 1960's. Today it's not even in the top 100. Do you know anyone named Susan (or Suzanne)?
I sure do. :)
3. The Buckinghams were Chicago's attempt to get in on The British Invasion begun by the Beatles. (Hence the silly suits.) But they took their name from Chicago's famous Buckingham Fountain. If Crazy Sam visited your neighborhood, what local site would you recommend she check out?
The Boardwalk here in Virginia Beach or the Train Depot in Boise, Idaho.
4. Chicago is known for deep dish pizza. Describe your dream pizza. (Calories, carbs and gluten need not be a factor because it's dream pizza!)
I love pizza. Any kind of pizza. I don't think that I have a dream pizza though.
5. The Buckinghams got thir big break by winning a local "battle of the bands." Do you often go to concerts or bars to listen to live music?
No, not really.
6. The best-selling book in 1968 (the year "Susan" was released) was Airport by Arthur Hailey. It was set during a snowstorm at Lincoln International, a fictional airport based on Chicago's O'Hare. What's the most recent airport you flew to? Why were you there?
Norfolk airport. We were coming back home from vacation.
7. Bears, Blackhawks, Bulls, Cubs, Sox... Chicago is a big sports town. What's your favorite pro team?
Probably the Seattle Mariners. :)
8. Thinking of sports, did you watch the Olympics? If yes, which events?
Nope, I wanted to but our bunny ears for the tv broke. :(
9. Do you consider yourself an idealist or a pragmatist?
