  1. Yes! The Shondells are so good! 🎶 ✨
    I heard on the radio “Going Down for the Last Time” (I couldn’t see the title) by Head East. I loved it and this was bringing back memories. . .
    I had to come home and look up how old it was and wonder why this group never got famous and now, considered “one hit wonder band.” Written in 1975.
