Balloon Farm – A Question Of Temperature

balloon farm question kaleidoscopepath

There’s a sudden rise in the mercury
There’s a thumpin’ in my heart, it just had to be
Heat wave, hurricane, whirling in my head
Cool disposition, just hanging by a thread

Is it a question of love? hah!
Is it a state of mind? no, no, no, no
It’s a question of, it’s a question of, it’s a question of, it’s a question of
Of temperature, yeah

I wake up in the morning
Go to sleep at night with the fever
She says “I won’t hang you up”
And I say “baby I believe ya”

Is it a question of love? hah!
Is it a state of mind? no, no, no, no
It’s a question of, it’s a question of, it’s a question of, it’s a question of
Of temperature, yeah

I’ll tell it like it is, girl you gotta keep your distance
‘Cause the doctor says I’ve got a very low resistance
Non-stop elevator pushing to the top
No second chance for a temperature drop

Is it a question of love? hah!
Is it a state of mind? no, no, no, no
It’s a question of, it’s a question of, it’s a question of, it’s a question of
Of temperature, yeah

Strawberry Alarm Clock – Girl from the City

SAC in Valleyofthedolls

The Strawberry Alarm clock had their first hit with “Incense and Peppermints” in 1967. But instead of posting this familiar song I thought I’d go for “Girl From The City”. It is not as psychedelic. The group appeared with the song in Russ Meyer’s movie “Beyond the Valley of the Dolls”. Every time I listen to the song it makes me smile. It’s a fun song. I always have to laugh when he sings “All I want is a big fat mama from the city”.
