I gave you a hint as to what the song would be last week. I wonder if anyone guessed it. 😀


Looking Glass

looking glassLooking Glass was an American pop music group of the early 1970s that was part of the Jersey Shore sound. Their 1972 song “Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl)” sold over a million copies.

The group had the #1 hit single for the week of August 26, 1972 with “Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl)”, written by Lurie; and also a minor hit “Jimmy Loves Mary-Anne” (1973), subsequently Bar_wenchcovered by Josie Cotton. “Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl)” was released in the US in June 1972. It topped the Billboard Hot 100 for one week and remained on the chart for 16 weeks. This disc, their only million seller, was certified gold by the RIAA on August 9, 1972. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.)

Being a bar wench/pirate captain, I’ve loved this song since the day I heard it the first time. In fact, my very FIRST online name back in 1997 was Brandy
