"dip-te-dip-te-dip...bop-tede-bop...Blue Moon"~ Sha na na
I probably didn't get that lyric right- it's kind of tough to transcribe the cultural icon that is Bowzer of Sha-Na-Na fame.
The first "Blue Moon" memory I have dates back to the movie Grease. My sister had the soundtrack, so between it and the movie, I became quite familiar with the song. Who can forget the mooning scene during National Bandstand.
One Blue Moon I am becoming familiar with is of the adult beverage kind. Suggested to me by a friend, I am growing a fondness for the wheat ale. Please, just don't give me an orange slice to go along with the drink. I woke up recently with a tummy ache. As one who has to pop a Prilosec daily, I should have known better.
Oh-yes, cards. I don't really have any memories of Johnny "Blue Moon" Odom. I didn't even think of him being the same guy pictured on a familiar piece of cardboard: a 1976 Topps #651 with "John" in a Braves uniform.
