Maybe one of you west coast TCers know the name of this song. I have an old tape of a 'Rodney on the ROQ' show from I think 1982. One of the songs he plays is about Buffy (Anissa Jones) from the 'Family Affair' TV show OD'ing.

The lyrics are 'Buffy, Buffy come back to me/why'd ya hafta go and OD?/what about Uncle Bill, Jodi, and Sissy?'

Totally sounds like an L.A. band. Maybe a girl group, at least the vocals are by a girl.

Anybody? Anybody??

That's "Buffy Buffy Come Back To Me" by Angel & The Reruns. I believe I still have it on one of my old Rodney on the Roq compilation lps from the early 80s.

But can you still sing it?

"Buffy, Buffy come back to me/Why'd you have to go and OD/Who's gonna take care of Mrs. Beasley?"

Thanks Sabu, that sounds about right.

Now does anybody know the name of some English band that did a song called 'Yesterday'?....

To return the favor, can anyone remember the old Max's Kansas City band that had a song that went "Ma! I'm leaving soon/to be the first Rock Star on the Moon"? I've got the song stuck in my head & can't pull it out, and I can't find mt copy of Max's Kansas City '76 to check.

Is that Suicide 'Rocket, USA' you're talking about?

Nope. I think it was the Brats' (the original NYC the Brats, not the LA '80s Glam band) "First Rock Star on the Moon," but I won't know 'til I can find the CD.
