chrisb6263:6222 wrote:Boy, do I agree with all of you on this one!!  I want in on the "Old Fashion Club", too....the year was 1967, I was 16 and had recently gotten my first record player.  My Cup Runneth Over was a HUGE hit for Ed Ames that summer, and he followed that with Who Will Answer, a topical song about society heading for ruin if we refused to change our perverse ways.  Not as big a seller as 'My Cup', but it did crack the Billboard top 20 in January, 1968.  Of course (and this was discussed on another thread recently), Ed played Mingo on Daniel Boone and EVERYONE alive and old enough to remember watching TV back then remembers his Tonight Show with Johnny Carson appearance in 1965 where he hit the wooden Indian target in a rather sensitive place!  I think I remember losing it when, after Ed's errant shot, Johnny scraped the ax blades together and said to Ed, "I didn't know you were Jewish!"  Anyway, Margie, thanks for recalling this tune - one of the most beautiful, heartfelt love songs EVER!!
