Actually, I believe the late Larry Hoppen is singing lead here, though I'm not certain. John Hall had left the band by the time this record was made.

Actually, I did hear this record a few times after it fell off the charts; albeit just a few.

We Americans have hang-ups about sex that no administration change will ever correct. I agree with you on the Scandinavian and general European model's superiority, but they cannot be duplicated in the Bible Belt, with the worst of our teen pregnancy crisis. (Some study- I'd like to check this- found that of the poorest and least educated states, 9 out of ten of them were the worst in teen pregnancy. I'm not surprised! Worst of all, Planned Parenthood is being decimated nationally.I support it.

Igraduated that year from high school, remembering the romance that I couldn't morally or legally have with a 9th grader who dug me - and i dug her. I know other guys would've dated her in my position, but I was turning 18, going to college- it would've been cruel to use her, basically just to lose my virginity? No way! patience paid off years later. I was able to love and be loved without having to worry about coming out of a Maryland prison at 44!

I empathize. Life can get us down, then we bounce back.

The cars were kinda cool, but quality control was slipping. Worse yet, in light of the new pollution regulations, cars were running rougher than in past years. We also had government induced fuel shortages especially around 1973-4 and again in 1979.

I agree that we needed to reduce the number of unplanned pregnancies. Now I feel your model is the wrong one! One are the Europeans have one up on us is with sex. Over there, while youth are as sexually active if not more so than we are here, the RATE of unwanted pregnancies is significantly lower than in the US. This includes the most liberal countries. The reason for this is that the youth there are educated on sex and sexuality matters (including birth control!) much better than here!

LOL - yeah, I must've been in a pretty down mood. And that was BEFORE all this Benghazi/AP/IRS/chemtrails/Monsanto GMO stuff. Or at least b4 I knew about it. Oi.

While I'm pro-choice on reproductive freedom and abortion rights, I wish that our country had taken teen pregnancy seriously enough to have greatly reduced the numbers of unplanned pregnancies. Boys and men should always keep it in our pants until we're ready to father and to parent. Real men wait!
