Still, after a hot summer day in Iowa, it was great to kick back in the cool evening breeze and enjoy these two mellow tunes. I'm a girl that adores the sea and has a locket from my husband who unlike Brandy's man has been around. My mom and daddy always told me that was how I got my name.This song came out the best summer of my life, 1973. Whenever I hear the song Brandy I think of the best summer of my life when I was 12. My Mom always calls me whenever she hears it on the radio.We had just finished one of the worst days of my life and were returning to the barracks to get "unsandy".As we entered the barracks in the distance I heard "Brandy".I'll just keep listening to the Oldies, (especially artists like the "Looking Glass". How 'bout other cities, like Minneapolis or Albuquerque?Actually the group name came along when they were all sitting around and were watching Alice in Wonderland.
He ended up driving to Bill's house and giving him a copy of the Album with Bill Fisher named as the Bass Player, and gave it to Bill. He was a great man and never told us about the band until we knew him well.The current artists just don't make the grade that the past artists did.They just don't seem to feel what they are singing. We used to go to the Enlisted Men's Club for lunch. There was a beautiful dancer named Brandi and she would dance to this song every day. This song triggered a huge wave of baby girls named "Brandy" in the early-to-mid seventies. Didn't mind that a bit, unlike the flood of girls named "Madison" that started with the movie "Splash." What a name for a kid.Whenever I hear it now I'm immediately taken back to that evening but always with a fond memory, not how I felt at the time. There is something about Elliot Lurie's voice that is really calming, the "Looking Glass" band as a whole is super geat too. I wish we had more singers/bands that would put great music (songs) out there like they did back in the 60's & 70's.I listen to a lot of music (50, 60, 70 & 80's) at work and some from current artists.
