For some reason I always get Wayne Newton and Brenda Lee confused.

Maybe it's the hair color.

It helps that BANDS could swing, too, and comprised of real musicians not synthesizers.

Miss Janey you are positively reading my mind! I just played the clip again and for the first time listened to the boys in the band and the arrangement and my first thought was 'hell with boppers like that behind me even I could swing!'

hand to gawd, sugar! i always though kd sounded familiar, but until just now...but, yeah, those bands were all about the music. another genre, but if you get a chance check out the "funk brothers/motown sound" xoxoxo
