Was this the same song that ABC Television turned into the
"You're the 1" promotion? I can't look for it, but I may have a copy of
that somewhere. I recall a silver/chrome pin in the shape of a big "1"
and a black "abc" meatball on it.
On another note, is this the Mike Settle who wrote "Settle Down" and
Judy Collins recorded it on "Judy Collins/3?"
