Radio XXX, side A, track 1: “When I’m With You” by Sheriff

SheriffOh, Sheriff, this is it.  This is the last time I recorded this song off the radio.  Of all the songs that I recorded multiple times because I loved them so much, yours was the song I recorded the most.  Seven times, if my math is right.  There’s no question why, of course, Sheriff.  This song is one of the best songs ever made, and that’s not just hyperbole.  OK, maybe it is hyperbole, but having just listened to it yet again, I still haven’t tired of it, and I’ve been able to write something new about it every time it’s reared its wonderful head on the track list.  If there’s one good thing that’s come out of starting this blog, it’s that I’ve been able to catalog and categorize all my cherished music so that I can listen to it whenever I want to.  Which is what those tapes I made so long ago were all about, too, and if you would have told me that there’d come a time when listening to “When I’m With You” was going to be this easy, I would have given you a big old hug, Sheriff.

So this isn’t really good-bye, Sheriff.  This is just “I’ll see you around”.  Because I’ll be back, whether it’s this post or one of the other six I wrote about your amazing song, so I can listen to it yet again and sing along with it (except for that last note, of course).  And just like life and relationships, while our little blogging romance is ending, new blogging romances are ready to blossom.  This song was the first I recorded on my thirtieth tape, and while it’s a repeat of a song I recorded multiple times, it’s ushering in a new era for my young self as a non-professional radio taper.  There are a plethora of brand new (relatively speaking) songs coming up after several tapes of mostly repeats.

No regrets, Sheriff.  Although I may regret my Roman numeral numbering system when “radio xxx” starts showing up in Google searches. . .
