Guess the welcoming committee is particular to whom they welcome.
Just for the record (pardon the pun), when Randy Sparks & I wrote "Green Green", it was Randy who was supposed to sing the lead.
*** RING RING *** RING RING ***
All of a sudden the phone rang, and Randy was called away. I began to sing Randy's part....
"I told my mama on the day I was born don't you cry when you see I'm gone..."
Randy heard me and jumped right in front of where I was standin' and said....
=> "Barry, the lead is yours" !!!
Bonus Track: "EVE OF DESTRUCTION" (1965)
<> President Kennedy (JFK) addresses the Canadian Parliament in 1961:
"Let me say this about Canada.
Geography has made us neighbors.
History has made us friends.
Economics has made us partners, and
necessity has made us allies.
Those whom God has so joined together,
let no man put asunder."
- John F. Kennedy
