The music for Gene Pitney's song "If I only Had time" is identical to a french hit "Je n'aurais pas le temps" by Michel Fugain. People tell me that Pitney wrote it, but Fugain claims to have written the music. Who did really? It won't end the world not to know, but I'm being driven mad by it.Anyone?
Sometimes I think Country Yossi is living in such a tight vacuum that not only does he not hear what we write about his magazine, but he finds new and creatively deceptive ways to push truth in advertising back 50 years.Shmuel forwards a link to an eBay auction for Lipa Shmeltzer ' s $20 Bill
Sunday I was in a Pizza shop in Flatbush and I noticed a new Country Yossi issue. I immediately opened it to the top 20 list and I was shocked to see that a CD that isn't even in stores yet is # 16 on the Top 20 selling CD's. What further proof does that Jewish community need to see how fictitious the Country Yossi magazine is. What a joke.
