"Language of the Father's" - what is that? Our Fathers and Mothers spoke various types of German, French, Latin etc which eventually morphed into English.

I appreciate Mari (RangeRoverA1) wanting English only as she is doing a wonderful job learning that crazy language.

But I'd love to be able to see Happy Birthday in various languages.

Speaking of language, and as this is the Welcome thread, how do people in other countries say Hello or Welcome? As in colloquial ways of saying it.
The funniest is when I go to restaurants or other places with service people.
The best greeting from a guy was when I went to a coffee shop in the French Quarter back in the 70s. He came to me and said, "And how the hell are you?" He said it good naturedly and I took it in stride.
With women I've been called Honey, Dawlin' (Darling), Hawt (Heart), Sweetie, Sweet Mama, Precious, and even My Love  Cheesy
Yesterday, at a book shop, the lady said, "How are you doing, Sweet Pea?"

Maybe it's just a "Southern Thang" or also in small town America. Don't know if they'd do it in New York.
Interested in any Terms of Endearment elsewhere.

I don't know...the lyrics don't really bother me as much as, say, Belles of Paris.

The Columbia version of "Yellow Balloon" had been re-recorded with a better arrangement. The rest of the album was tweaked and re-mixed for stereo. Both the mono and stereo versions were released on the Sundazed compilation in 1996. The original stereo versions of what appeared on that disc would have been what Columbia released if Dean had accepted the counter proposal from Jan's attorneys and Screen Gems.

sadly not entirely true... missing from the Sundazed compilation was the stereo version of "Like A Summer Rain", so if you wanted to put together your own stereo version of the lp, you couldn't.  If anyone has a copy of this track in stereo, I'd appreciate a PM

<<Thanks again. I fully agree that the Columbia Yellow Balloon has an infinitely better arrangement than the original version.>>

For my money, different, not better. I love the original version, in terms of tempo and production.  It sounds more like a Jan & Dean record.  More punch.  And Gary Zekeley obviously agreed, as the tempo matches his Yellow Balloon version.  The CBS mix sounds more like a Turtles record which. I assume, was intentional.

A shame a great vocal was wasted on matchpoint's inane lyrics as well.
