Look Out The Window 

 

look out the window 

never mind the tears running 

down my face

look out the window

i know that love is gonna leave 

it’s trace 

time is going home

hear the humble tone

of men who watch their children die

who gave the reasons now question why

can’t we join hands and 

help our brothers live to serve mankind

Peace will come 

na na na na na na  

Peace will come 

na na na na na na

      Twyla & Lou wrote this song for the concept album "Paint America Love" in response to the changing times America was going through in the early 1970's. Those tumultuous times are very reminiscent of what our country is going through right now. 
   Here at ISHBAH we feel it's time to put "Look Out The Window" on the turntable again and "Paint America Love"

       Wasn't it nice to come home from school and have a favorite radio station to listen to or a certain record or favorite TV show to catch on Thursday night?
    Remember waiting for I Love Lucy, Your Hit Parade, or the Jackie Gleason Show?   
    Boy wasn't life a lot simpler then!  We had time to think, feel, and come to our own decisions.
     Let's bring those feelings & great memories in to the New Year and give Lou & Lesley's new song "Don't You Remember?" another spin.
              Happy New Year.

      We like Play Back Sundays here on ISHBAH.
   Its great to sit back and take another spin on a good song that got lost in the shuffle. 
    This time of the year we all need to reflect and take a step back.
     Let this Roy Orbison song remind us just how beautiful love can be as we move into a new year.

      "Now it's time to say goodbye to all our family"    
       That was the last thing you heard on the Mickey Mouse Club every night.  When Annette Funicello was the sweetheart of America.
      We are thinking ahead of the new smile we want to put on your face next year. New talk ...new ideas ... and great records to hear once again.
       So stay safe ...stay tuned and don't forget your backstage pass.

       Every Back-up Singer that I have worked with on my records had to have something special, something unique, something no one else could copy.
      Well ... right on time, and always in tune were, Peggy Santiglia, Bernadette Carroll and Denise Ferri. 
        Very sad news came this weekend when I heard of the passing of Denise.  Denise was a very exceptional person, with her kindness, her sweetness, her sincerity and her beauty!  Laughing, we did a lot whether it was rehearsing or at the microphone.  There was always a twinkle in her eyes. 
      Denise you will make a beautiful Angel. Thank You for being in my life and helping me in so many ways. 
 
    Remember Love goes on forever.

      This vocal group from Chicago was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001 by none other than Frankie Valli.  
      As Billboard Magazine said of them "They are universally hailed as one of the finest and most influential vocal groups in pop music history, the Flamingos defined doo wop at it's most elegant and sophisticated." 
        Here is a song of theirs that didn't go as far up the charts as some of their hits but here on ISHBAH we feel that it should have been a Hit.  
     Give it a listen and a vote and let us know what you think.

      In 1963 this singer had a Big Hit. It was her only hit and considered a one-hit-wonder.  However with her amazing voice she went on to be one of the singers on The Red Skelton Show, the Danny Kaye Show, The Carol Burnett Show and in the 70's with Sonny & Cher.
      She was the singer on the Rice-a-Roni, "The San Francisco Treat" commercial and many others as well as being a singer on several TV show themes including Flipper, Batman, Love American Style, and most notably The Partridge Family.
 
      Elton John said her voice on Pat Boone's hit "Speedy Gonzales" was his inspiration for "Crocodile Rock"
        Here on ISHBAH we feel her follow up single "In His Car' should have been her follow up Hit.

   This Album was a true labor of love for Twyla and I.  We wrote more than we ever wrote before and for the first time we weren't thinking of cracking the top forty but rather trying to capture the changing times America was going through in the early 1970's.
 
     Those were heady times back then; very reminiscent of the times we are going through now. 
     I'd like to believe that this album stands the test of time. Let us know what you think here on ISHBAH ...

Listen to all the songs from Lou's Album       ~Paint America Love~ 
    
       This song was written by a famous songwriter with many hits under his belt.  It's sung by the lead singer of a legendary million selling R&B group, produced and backed with the "Motown Wall of Sound" and it somehow got lost in the shuffle.
 
    This gem could have ... and should have been a hit & we think it could be a hit today.

    This legendary rock duo's father first heard the steel guitar when he was in the Army stationed in Oklahoma.  When he got back home to Brooklyn he got one for his sons.   The rest is Rock History ... A Number One Instrumental!
 
    Lou's song pick this week is Santo & Johnny's follow up record.  George Harrison of the Beatles was very inspired by this song ... and here on ISHBAH we feel that this should have been their second #1 hit.

       Here on ISHBAH on this Play Back Sunday we are featuring a duet that Lou sang many times in concert with his singing partner Lesley Gore.  Their voices blended perfectly and complimented each others amazing vocal ranges & love of pop music. 
      This song always brought the house down when they closed their show with it.  The audiences lucky enough to hear them sing this gem in concert will never forget it.
      Give it another listen right here right now...
