Me??? I was at one of those impromptu basement sock hops... I had been to many of them and went just so that I could dance and listen to the music but...

...this one was different... I was dancing close with a girl and someone put Kathy Young's "A Thousand Stars" on and that night was different... I didn't really get it yet but I knew there was something more than dancing and listening to records at impromptu sock hops...

Can't decide whether that's a typo for hormones or for harmonies - just one letter off in either case.

There are a bunch of cheesy pop songs from 1966 through 1968 that bring back lustful adolescent memories of certain young ladies. "I Think We're Alone Now" by Tommy James and the Shondells is one of 'em. That particular girl's name was Sandy and she had red hair. I never really liked the song, but Sandy did, and I didn't mind being alone with her at all. Anyway, fifteen year-old boys have been known to sacrifice worse things their good taste in music for red-haired girls.

A couple of years later, after a few consciousness altering experiences, those bits of pop shlock were supplanted by "Let's get stoned and see what it's like to fuck to this!" songs like Led Zeppelin's "How Many More Times" and Pink Floyd's "Careful With That Axe, Eugene".

Not the song, but the singer, is a "hormonal memory" for me.

Around 1985, a "local" singer and her band made a couple of recordings and convinced a local pub (where I happened to stop in occasionally) to put one of them on the juke box.

The singer was a young girl named Martina, and without knowing originally what she looked like or how old (young?) she was at the time, there was just a particular little "thing" in the voice that would have made just about anything she sang incredibly "stimulating."

Shortly after, when I met her a few times, her age actually did make be feel a little "guilty" for the way the earliest songs had affected me, I guess. (But not very guilty.)

She later "matured" and the particular little "spark" in her 16-17 year old voice sort of faded, although she's still good listening. Some say she sort of made the big-time after she changed her last name from Schiff to McBride, but I don't follow her current style/genre much.

It takes a good song, but the delivery is what adds the "something special." (And sometimes you just have to be in "that kind of mood.)

I suppose we could get off on "Singing in Hormony"; but if you want to know the song that first set my juvenile hormones in action, it's Peggy Lee singing "Fever."
