See Jane: R. Dean Taylor

Who? I don’t know him either. Today I grew weary trying to find some music that fit the day. I ended up in an album called Forgotten Songs of the Sixties. It has four discs. I took umbrage with some of their choices but not the two I’ve posted.

    One hit wonder with 1970’s “Indiana Wants Me.” Your selection is a TAD better and reminds me of *something* I can’t quite put my finger on. It’s the harpsichord also used somewhere else. Any ideas?

      I wanted to laugh about this video. At the end when he is in and out of the lights, it reminded me of a search for Yeti. I don’t think it took long to write, repeating the lyrics worked well. The boy guy is always missing his woman.

      It is no wonder we’re talking one-hit wonder here.

      No, I can’t identify it either.

    I remember he did a song called “There’s A Ghost In My House” which was also covered by The Fall.

    ‘There’s a Ghost In My House’ was released on Motown’s VIP label. It was championed by the Northern Soul crowd in England and it definitely has the danceability of the classic Motown Sound..

    It’s quite obvious you didn’t grow in Indiana then. All of us who did know of his one hit. 😉
