    'The Drum' is a really good song if you ever get the chance, it's sung by Bobby Sherman.

    Das Album "Appetizers" von Alan O'Day muss hier unbedingt rein! Diese Perle darf nicht fehlen, da ist jeder Song gelungen.

    Ein super Titel, erinnert mich immer an American Top 40 mit Wolfman Jack. Leider gibt es diesen Song nicht mehr zu kaufen. Und hier ist er leider auch nicht in voller Länge verfügbar. Vielleicht gibt es jemanden, der weiß, wo ich diesen Titel bekommen kann. Das wäre seeeeeehr nett. Greetz blalebo
