    Madison didn't remember Tell Me A Lie. The first two singles recorded by Arkansas-born Sami Jo (real name: Jane Annette Jobe) were Don't Hang No Halos On Me in 1971 and Big Silver Angel in 1972. Neither song charted. Her third single, Tell Me A Lie, written by Barbara Wyrick and Mickey Buckins and released in December 1973, became her first chart hit, reaching #21 on the Hot 100, #52 on the country chart and #14 on the adult contemporary chart. Her follow-up, It Could Have Been Me, reached #46 on the Hot 100 and #61 on the country chart. Five more of her songs made the country chart.

    Barbara Wyrick also wrote In My Eyes, which became a number-one country hit for John Conlee, and toured with Ronnie Milsap as one of his background singers. Janie Fricke's version of Tell Me A Lie went to number one on the country chart in December 1983. Here it is:

    Ha! What a crock. He's made over 34,000 posts on XMFan, and he's double-posting the same stuff here. He's annoying members there too.

    I wonder how many forums he's on, or what he does during the 5 minutes a day he's not posting somewhere. Glad I'm outta here.

    There's a doppelganger forum out there to DRC? Shocking.

    Ragtime composer Scott Joplin wrote The Entertainer in 1902. The song was initially available as sheet music and on piano rolls for player pianos. Joplin finally recorded the song in 1916. Marvin Hamlisch's version appeared in the 1973 movie The Sting, which was set in 1936, around 15 years after ragtime music faded from popularity. (Hamlisch should have played Pennies From Heaven, It's De-Lovely or Beer Barrel Polka.) The Entertainer has been recorded by more than a hundred artists, including Mantovani, Joe Sample, Dick Hyman, Chet Atkins, Floyd Cramer, Percy Faith, Ray Conniff, and Arthur Fiedler & The Boston Pops. Here is the original version by Scott Joplin:

    Funny story about "Daisy A Day": this morning, I was in the car driving my mother and were listening to the countdown. I told her that this was a countdown from weeks before she graduated from high school. I asked her if all this reminded her of her senior year and she told me "not this song, I've never heard it before in my life!" She grew up in Detroit (CKLW country) and wondered if they even played that tune. It did peak at #14.

    Justin Roderick "Jud" Strunk Jr. was a regular performer on Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, appearing on all 24 episodes of the 1972-73 season. He also made one appearance on Hee Haw in November 1972. In 1974, he appeared in all six episodes of the short-lived series The Dean Martin Comedy World, which Dean Martin lent his name to but otherwise had nothing to do with. Jackie Cooper was the host. A Daisy A Day reached #4 on the adult contemporary chart, #14 on the Hot 100 and #33 on the country chart. In 1975, Strunk had a #50 pop hit and #51 country hit with a song about a woman who has The Biggest Parakeets In Town. *Hee-hee-hee, snicker*
