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:

This post is very interesting. I just read it word for word and video for video on another site. There are 4 possibilities of this occurring:

1. You are the same poster by a different name.
2. You copied this verbatim from the other site onto this site.
3. The other poster copied this verbatim onto the other site.
4. Divine inspiration hit 2 different posters simultaneously.

Given the timings of the posts, I am leaning to #1 or #4.
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.

I wonder who my XMFan doppelganger is?

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*

Morning Has Broken was written by Eleanor Farjeon, a British-born poet and author of children's stories, and was first published in 1931 in the UK. In the United States, the song first appeared in 1957 in a Presbyterian hymnal. It has since been published in Baptist and Lutheran hymnals. Morning Has Broken has been recorded by more than 140 artists including Kenny Rogers, Neil Diamond, Floyd Cramer, Acker Bilk, Roger Whittaker, Judy Collins, Dianne Reeves, the Spinners, the New Seekers and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Here is a duet version by Art Garfunkel and Diana Krall:

Indian Reservation was written by John D. Loudermilk, who also wrote Norman, Abilene, Waterloo, Break My Mind, Ebony Eyes, I Wanna Live, Sad Movies, Paper Tiger, Tobacco Road, Thou Shalt Not Steal, Talk Back Trembling Lips and Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye. He also had several chart hits of his own, including The Language Of Love in 1961.

In 1963, Paul Revere & The Raiders became the first rock'n'roll group signed to Columbia Records. In 1970, label executive Jack Lord suggested lead singer Mark Lindsay, who is one-sixteenth Cherokee, record Indian Reservation. The song had been a #20 US hit for British-born Don Fardon (real name: Donald Maughn) two years earlier. Lindsay recorded Indian Reservation – he also served as producer – and, nice guy that he was, released it under the name "The Raiders." It went to number one in July 1971, becoming the Raiders' tenth and final top-20 hit.

The first artist to record the song, originally titled The Pale Faced Indian, was Marvin Rainwater, who was one-fourth Cherokee and is best known for his 1957 hit Gonna Find Me A Bluebird. From 1959, here is his original version of Indian Reservation:
