Saturday 9: Don't You Care? (1967)

 1) What's something that seems to fascinate everyone else, but you just don't care about?

2) The lyrics refer to "the times we cried and laughed." Which did you do more recently, cry or laugh?
seems cry. this knee surgery has been a marriage tester. butt... i have to remember how to be a wife again. This sounds horribly selfish. We were married for 21years, then I was alone for many, then briefly remarried then alone for a long time. Its only been  7 months, trying to get my groove back.

3) In the song, our hero seems surprised that his girlfriend doesn't believe him. Are you more believing and trusting, or suspicious and skeptical?
suspicious. that brief second marriage was somewhat eye opening.

4) This song is just over two minutes long, which seems short for a song but awful long when Sam is waiting for her chicken soup to heat in the microwave. What's the last thing you heated in a microwave?

5) This week's band, The Buckinghams, was one of the first acts to perform at Chicago's premiere summer festival, The Taste of Chicago.* Let's think ahead: Have you made any plans for Summer 2016?
vacation somewhere. 

6) In 1967, when this song was popular, Rolling Stone magazine published its first issue. What magazines do you subscribe to? Do they arrive in the mail, or do you read them online?
Southern Living. Diabetic Life. Yankee. Mail. 

7) Country star/American Idol judge Keith Urban was born in 1967. Are you watching the final season of American Idol?

8) In 1967, the average cost of a movie ticket was $1.25. By 2015, it had risen $8.60. What's the last movie you saw in a theater?
Gone Girl

9) Random question: Sam's taking everyone out to dinner and she's buying. Would you prefer the steak or the lobster?
