October 27, 1985

A work associate (Scott you know who you are.) and I have been having musical discussions recently.  This young man missed being exposed to early rock and roll.  Now, he’s making up for lost time.  I have always noticed that the guitar cords (about 45 seconds in) in Someday We’ll Be Together sound so similar to those that Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) plays at the “big dance” in Back to the Future.  You know.  Earth Angel.  Where Marty begins to see his family fade from a photo.  He even sees himself begin to fade until his parents finally kiss on the dance floor.

 

What was the name of the band that played at the “big dance”?

I heart you.

I heart you is incorrect. I do know that Marvin Berry is the lead singer..."Your cousin, Marvin!!"

Yes - Mr. Bojangles is correct. Lorieloo was only expressing her love for Maybelline.

Marvin Berry and the Starlighters played at the Enchantment Under the Sea dance (1955).
