Don't You Care? (1967)
If you're not familiar with today's song, you can hear it here.
1) What's something that seems to fascinate everyone else, but you just don't care about?
Instagram. Why?2) The lyrics refer to "the times we cried and laughed." Which did you do more recently, cry or laugh?
I laugh far far more than I cry, always. But sometimes that laughter is either in spite of tears or to hide the tears.3) In the song, our hero seems surprised that his girlfriend doesn't believe him. Are you more believing and trusting, or suspicious and skeptical?
I'm a weird blend of naive and skeptical. I don't love being cynical, but I do tend to see through people's BS far more often than not.4) This song is just over two minutes long, which seems short for a song but awful long when Sam is waiting for her chicken soup to heat in the microwave. What's the last thing you heated in a microwave?
Hmmm. Mashed potatoes Tuesday night? I think?5) This week's band, The Buckinghams, was one of the first acts to perform at Chicago's premiere summer festival, The Taste of Chicago.* Let's think ahead: Have you made any plans for Summer 2016?
Nope. I'm intent on trying to get a week in March to go visit a friend who just bought a house in Minnesota.6) In 1967, when this song was popular, Rolling Stone magazine published its first issue. What magazines do you subscribe to? Do they arrive in the mail, or do you read them online?
Entertainment Weekly, Ms., Presbyterian Outlook, and BookMarks. I still read the paper versions most of the time.7) Country star/American Idol judge Keith Urban was born in 1967. Are you watching the final season of American Idol?
I haven't watched any American Idol, except in clips on other shows or on YouTube.8) In 1967, the average cost of a movie ticket was $1.25. By 2015, it had risen $8.60. What's the last movie you saw in a theater?
SW:TFA. We're probably going to see it once more this afternoon.9) Random question: Sam's taking everyone out to dinner and she's buying. Would you prefer the steak or the lobster?
Can't I do surf n turf? Actually, I think I'll go with steak; I usually get about 3 bites of lobster before I feel full and sort of sick. So rich.__________
