This tune is sung just before the scene where Gene Kelly sings the title tune of the movie, "Singin' In The Rain". - Peter

Diana Ross Touch Me In The Morning Touch me in the morning Then just walk away In 1973, "Touch Me In The Morning" was Diana Ross' second solo #1, after departing the Supremes. "Touch Me In The Morning", along with Ross appearing in the film, "Lady Sings The Blues" (a biopic about Billie Holiday) is credited with reviving Ross' career.

Diane Keaton, Natalie Mosco and Suzannah Norstrand Black Boys Black boys are delicious. "Black Boys" is another song from the musical, "Hair". In the original 1968 Broadway production of "Hair" it is sung by Diane Keaton (yes, that Diane Keaton), Natalie Mosco and Suzannah Norstrand as a white girl salute to the African-American men in their lives. More than likely the lyrics would be considered inappropriate sometime a while after the 1972 close of the original Broadway production. - Peter

Diane Renay Navy Blue Blue, Navy blue, I'm as blue as I can be  - Candy Welty

Dick Van Dyke Step In Time Step in time, step in time, Come on, mateys, step in time.  "Step In Time" is another song from Disney's classic, "Mary Poppins". Dick Van Dyke as Bert again leads his chimney sweep chorus and nearly the whole cast in this song. - Peter
Dick Van Dyke Baby, Talk To Me Talk to me, baby, won't you talk to me, I don't care what you say, Baby, talk to me. "Baby, Talk To Me" is another song from Charles Strouse and Lee Adams' musical, "Bye Bye Birdie". Dick Van Dyke's character, Albert Peterson sings this to his girlfriend, Rose Grant (played on Broadway by Chita Rivera and in the 1963 motion picture by Janet Leigh). In the 1995 ABC/Disney TV special of "Bye Bye Birdie", Albert would get a middle initial of "J." and be played by Jason Alexander (George from "Seinfeld") and Rose would get a last name change to Alvarez and be played by actress/singer/former Miss America, Vanessa Williams (currently appearing in ABC's hit TV show, "Ugly Betty"). - Peter
Dick Van Dyke Chim Chim Cher-ee Chim chim-in-ey, chim chim-in-ey, Chim chim cher-ee.  "Chim Chim Cher-ee" is from the 1964 Disney musical, "Mary Poppins". Dick Van Dyke played London chimney sweep, Bert, who leads a chorus of chimney sweeps in this song. - Peter
Dick Van Dyke Put On A Happy Face Gray skies are gonna clear up, Put on a happy face! The song, "Put On A Happy Face" is from the Charles Strouse (music) and Lee Adams (lyrics)' musical, "Bye Bye Birdie". "Bye Bye Birdie" originally ran on Broadway in the 1960 - 61 season and was made into a motion picture in 1963 (there was also an ABC/Disney TV Special made of it in 1995). Dick Van Dyke who played the character of Albert Peterson was both in the Broadway version and the motion picture. "Bye Bye Birdie" was loosely based on the events surrounding Elvis Presley's entry into the Army in the early 1960's (the character of Conrad Birdie looks a lot like Elvis pre his U.S. Army days). - Peter

Dionne Warwick Alfie What's it all about, Alfie? 1966's "Alfie" was another top twenty hit for Dionne Warwick and the songwriting duo of Hal David and Burt Bacharach. "Alfie" is theme song from the British motion picture (that started out as a novel by Bill Naughton -- who also wrote the screenplay) of the same title, which starred a very young, Michael Caine in the title role.

Dionne's next hit would be a top twenty hit written by David & Bacharach, "Anyone Who Had A Heart", from 1964 (making Warwick one of those few American artists to break through the stranglehold that British artist had on the charts in light of the British Invasion started by the Beatles) and the next song would be a top ten smash in the fall of 1964, "Walk On By". - Peter

Donna Summer Last Dance Last dance, Last chance for love.  "Last Dance" was a top five hit in 1977 for Donna Summer and continued the work that Summer did with producer, Giorgio Moroder. "Last Dance" became the anthem to close out a night out at the Disco or at least Disco dancing and set up the night of romance or passion to come. - Peter
Donna Summer On The Radio Someone found a letter you wrote me, on the radio, And they told the world just how you felt. "On The Radio" was a top five hit for Summer in the spring of 1980, and would be her last hit on the Casablanca records label before she went to a more lucrative contract with Geffen records. "On The Radio" was from the "On The Radio, Greatest Hits, Volume 1 & 2" lp and also contains the #1 November 1979 hit duo that Summer had with Barbra Streisand, "No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)". Shortly after the success with the single of "On The Radio" Summer left Casablanca for Geffen and then became a Born Again Christian. Summer continued to have some slight success with tunes, for a time on Geffen, but none of the tunes went into the top ten. By this time such groups as Pat Benatar, the Pretenders, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Journey and REO Speedwagon were taking pop music back to it's rock music foundations of the 1950's and 1960's and Disco was dying a slow death due to it's excesses and a changing audience. Donna was relegated to the sidelines at this time, but not for long as Donna was starting to listen to some of the new dance synthesizer pop called New Wave by groups such as the Go-Go's, the Human League, and Duran Duran were starting to become popular. - Peter
Donna Summer Love To Love You Baby I love to love you baby ... ahw ... 1976's "Love To Love You Baby" was the first hit (#2) for who would become known eventually as the "Queen Of Disco", Donna Summer (who also has been a songwriter and occassional actress) and it was a big hit coming along just as the Disco era was really picking up steam. The opening line can be repeated several times or only a few depending on which length of the tune is used or heard -- more on that again, in a moment. Donna Summer was born LaDonna Adrian Gaines on December 31, 1948 in Boston, Massachusetts. In her youth, despite her Christian upbringing (or maybe because of it), Summer would sing in a rock band who was influenced by Janis Joplin. When Summer was 18-years old she go a supporting role in the Broadway production of "Hair". Shortly after that she moved to Germany and appeared in the musicals "Godspell" and Showboat". In 1971, Summer released a European single of the remake of the 1963 Jaynettes' tune, "Sally Go 'Round The Roses" but it was a flop. In 1974, she married Austrian born actor, Helmuth Sommer (how she got the last name), but soon after they divorced. In 1975, while she was singing backup for the group, Three Dog Night (in Europe), the then producers of Three Dog Night, Girogio Moroder and Patti Belotte "discovered" Summer and signed her to Casablanca records which was fast becoming the lapel known for Disco. In 1975, Moroder and Belotte introduced Summer to "Love To Love You Baby" and recorded several different length versions of the tune (for Discos, radio edit and lp). One of those versions is a seventeen minute version where the opening line and the accompanying moan is repeated several times. "Love To Love You Baby" is considered by many to be the most overtly sexual and most sensual song of all time with Summer sounding as though she is making love during the recording of the song. - Peter
Donna Summer She Works Hard For The Money She works hard for the money, so hard for it, honey, She works hard for the money, so you better treat her right.  1983's "She Works Hard For The Money" was Donna Summer's biggest hit since 1979's "No More Tears" duet with Barbra Streisand. In the interim she had moved to Geffen records from Casablanca records, and then made a further move to Polydor records (but ended up in a contractual dispute with Geffen record owner, David Geffen, and had to record an lp, "She Works Hard For The Money", on Polydor that some of the proceeds went to Geffen), became a born again Christian and had to see and hear a changing pop music industry that had gone away from Disco to at first a Harder Rock sound and then to New Wave. In that manner, Summer's first top ten hit in the New Wave era was "Love Is In Control (Finger On The Trigger)" from the fall of 1982, it fit in perfectly at time when the big names on the charts were the Go-Go's, Men At Work, the Human League and the Motels. In 1983, and maybe because of the contractual dispute with Geffen, "She Works Hard For The Money" on Polydor was even more fitting in with the times when the big pop names changed even more to such artists as the Eurythmics, the Culture Club and Duran Duran, as well as Michael Jackson. "She Works Hard For The Money" was released in late summer 1983 and quickly went to #3 and partly on the basis of a wonderful video. After this Summer would continue to have some minor hits, until the top ten hit of 1989, "This Time I Know It's For Real" (which sounded the most like her Disco hits of old than any song had in years). Summer has continued to record and go on concert from time to time. - Peter
Donna Summer Dim All The Lights Dim all the lights sweet darling, Cause tonight it's all the way. Winter 1978/79's #3 hit, "Dim All The Lights" continued Donna Summer's reign as "Queen Of Disco". "Dim All The Lights" followed on the success of Fall 1978's #1 hit, "MacArthur Park" and is from the same lp, "Live And More". "MacArthur Park" was a successful Disco remake of 1968's Jimmy Webb's written tune that was a 1968 #2 hit for Irish singer/actor, Richard Harris. Many times "MacArthur Park" would be used as part of a disco medley that included "Brookyln" and the top five tune, "Heaven Knows". The "Live And More" lp continued Summer's collaberation with Giorgio Moroder. But at this time Summer and Moroder were looking for something to expand Summer's usual disco hits, in that way she and Moroder were starting to think along the lines of a recent punk crossover band named, Blondie and the disco but with a lot of soul group, Chic -- whose sounds Summer and Moroder both enjoyed. (Both Blondie and Chic would work for Moroder in the near future). - Peter
Donna Summer Bad Girls Bad girls, Talking about the sad girls. Summer 1979's "Bad Girls" was the second of two #1 tunes for Summer from the very inventful, but also extremely popular and award winning lp, "Bad Girls". "Bad Girls" continued the collaboration between Summer and producer, Giorgio Moroder. But instead of sticking with a pure Disco lp, Summer and Moroder decided instead to take the part of direction of both Chic and Blondie (or borrowed from both of them) and came up with an lp with that mixed rock, blues and electronic disco (to come up with something that had never been heard before). The first #1 from the lp was "Hot Stuff" in the late spring of 1979, and hot on the heels of that was, "Bad Girls". With "Bad Girls" actually replacing "Hot Stuff" at #1 (the first time that had happened for a female artists on Billboard's HOT 100 charts). The lp, also won Summer her first Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance. But more importantly, Summer and Moroder influenced a huge long line of a generation of rock/dance artists, including (but not limited to), the Eurythmics, Depeche Mode and Madonna! - Peter
Donna Summer Brooklyn Brooklyn, Child of freedom still new to this world. "Brooklyn" was a song used and sung by Donna Summer in the 1978 Disco film, "Thank God It's Friday". "Brooklyn" and the film and the whole year of 1978 cemented Summer's "Queen Of Disco" title. "Brooklyn" also continued Summer's work with Giorgio Moroder. - Peter

The Doors Hello, I Love You Hello, I love you Won't you tell me your name? The Doors' second and only other #1 single (after the summer of 1967's "Light My Fire") was, "Hello, I Love You" from the summer of 1968. Many people consider the Doors as selling out with this song, and even Jim Morrison said the same thing while he was still alive. Mainly on the basis of "Hello, I Love You's" length (less that 3 minutes) and possible Bubblegum music mentality. But after many radio stations (AM Top 40 was still dominate at that time) wouldn't play the full 7:07 version of "Light My Fire" and TV shows wouldn't let them perform "Light My Fire" for that long, the Doors were sort of stuck with what to do. But two #1's later, the Beatles were about to change all of that, and give the Doors and other future groups the ammunition they need to change all that (as well as make AM radio station change how they were playing records, and to make FM start to replace AM radio altogether) when the Beatles presented the over 9 minute song "Hey Jude" on their Apple records lapel that they refused to let any radio station edit down to size. - Peter

Dusty Springfield The Look Of Love The look of love Is in your eyes The look your smile can't disguise The 1967 top ten hit, "The Look Of Love" was written by American songwriters, Hal David and Burt Bacharach (who wrote Springfield's 1964 hit, "Wishin' & Hopin'") and recorded by Springfield for the Bond movie, "Casino Royale" (the original version of the movie). Springfield's original version of the song was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Song in 1967. While Springfield's version of "The Look Of Love" was in the top ten, Sergio Mendes and Brasil '66 recorded their own version which became a bigger top ten hit in 1968. Dusty Springfield who was awarded an OBE was born Mary Isobel Catherine Bernadette O'Brien on April 16, 1939 in West Hampstead, London, England. Mary O'Brien's first venture into recording came when she was 11 years old making an amateur recording at a local record shop of her favorite singer, American jazz singer Peggy Lee's version of Irving Berlin's "When The Midnight Choo Choo Leaves For Alabam". Her first professional singing career came in 1958 (when she was 19 years old) and joined the Lana Sisters who had several songs in the British charts for the next two years. In 1960, Mary O'Brien joined with her older brother, Dion O'Brien (they both changed their last names to Springfield, with Dion becoming Tom, and Mary becoming Dusty) and Tim Feild in creating the folk trio the Springfields who were signed by Johnny Franz to Philips Record. Shortly after Tim Field left and was replaced by Mike Hurst. With Hurst, the Springfields had several British hits including the top ten hit, "Island Of Dreams". In 1962, the Springfields had a rare pre-Beatles era American hit for a British artist with "Silver Threads And Golden Needles". Shortly after this, in 1963, while the Springfields were in America in Nashville, TN and New York City and Dusty heard the Exciters' hit, "Tell Him" and then some of the Motown girl groups (especially Martha & the Vandellas), Dusty decided to go solo. Tom Springfield and Mike Hurst would become successful record producers (Springfield produced the Seekers, while Hurst produced such acts as Manfred Mann). Dusty had solo success immediately with the international hit, "I Only Want To Be With You" and was one of the few successful solo women acts from Britian that invaded America in the British invasion started by the Beatles. Between "I Only Want To Be With You" and "The Look Of Love" she had several hits in the states (although none of them reached #1). She was known for her sultry vocals and similiarities to several African-American acts and singers (she has been lumped as an early artists known for "blue-eyed soul"). Dusty was also known for her promotion of Motown and Atlantic recording artists (especially Martha & the Vandellas and Aretha Franklin) in Britian and getting those artists success in that country. Dusty was also the first artist to refuse to play white-only audiences in then segregated and Aparthied South Africa. She would continue to have success well into the 1990's, even backing Elton John on "The Bitch Is Back" in 1975 and also recording a version of the American TV show, "Growing Pains" theme, "As Long As We Got Each Other" with B.J. Thomas that was used in the 4th season of that show . She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1994, and would succumb to that disease on March 2, 1999. She was so well liked and admired by many that even Queen Elizabeth II, in usual departure, sad she was saddened by the death of Dusty Springfield. - Peter
