Story

Rad Daly was a voice student of mine at the time. He was in the Bad News Bears cast at Paramount. He happened to mention me during one of the rehearsals and the casting directors at Paramount took an interest in the idea of letting one of the Bears do some music. So Paramount called me and had me bring in some songs the next day. They loved this song and rewrote the episode around it, calling the episode, "Birds, the Bees, and the Bears." Paramount also hired me as music director for the song and vocal coach for the cast. Rad went on to do hundreds of commercials, including the singing apple in all of the Fruit of the Loom commercials. He was the son on the movie, 10, with Julie Andrews and Arthur Hamilton. The casting directors loved to watch me work with the kids and Penny Marshal got the idea to write a recurring role for me in Happy Days. Later, they offered me a cameo in Mork and Mindy. I wish I had taken them up on it! At the time I was just trying to be a successful songwriter and voice coach.

Lyrics

CINDERELLA LOVE by Ron Browning copyright 1979 ASCAP In my imagination is the prettiest girl I've seen, Pretty as Cinderella....as real as England's Queen. I believe with all my might That she's materialize... And kiss me like a princess Right before my very eyes. CHORUS: Here's your slipper You're all that I think of. Here's your slipper, My Cinderella Love. Hey, Cinderella.... I'm your fella, My Cinderella Love. Everyday I wonder when girls give me those looks, Which one will be special like the ones in story books. When I think I've found her, I'll ask her over to dance, And that might be the start Of my very first romance. (to chorus) BRIDGE: Let's share....summer sun together. Let's wander through....the rainy weather.....(to chorus)

Story

Al Styne was an Australian RCA artist and a very popular television personality. I was introduced to him through Helen Reddy and Toni Lamond eons ago so the music certainly sounds very outdated. Al was always trying to do something "hip." He became aware of how popular Jim Fixx was becoming with his books and videos on jogging. So Al came up with the idea to write lyrics to a disco song about jogging. McDonald's was interested for the longest in using this as an advertisement. So the end would be: You can jog in the park, You can jog in the street. You can jog in the dark, You can jog to a beat. On a bet, on a dare, With a smile, not a care, And to McDonald's-- They do it all for you! RCA re-released this on a Best of the 70's LP called "Eggs and Bacon." Ralph Lew, famous choreographer, who came up with John Travolta's "finger pointing" move in Saturday Night Fever, made up a dance called THE JOG to go with this song. He was responsible for getting this song to the Arthur Murray Dance Studios in New York and the dance craze began. It spread to the west coast and Al Styne showcased Do the Jog at Cher's roller rink, called "Flipper." The concert was sponsored by Billboard Magazine. The song was later considered for other commercials.
