jack loves jill??
If someone can get this one I'd be so thrilled. I heard it when I was a kid visiting PA in the early 70s and I wish so much I could find out who it was.
This is what I remember:
"went to a party the other night, the disc jockey played those disco songs" and then in the chorus Jack loves Jill but Jill loves Paul but Paul loves Maryanne etc.
It was all male rather deepish voice and was played on station that was playing a lot of popular black soul and r&b like the Drifters, Wilson Picket, and so on.
Thanks for any leads in meantime I will continue searching - see if there are other boards like this I could ask at too?
I really want to find this song from childhood memories.

Jenny,

I posted you question on the OHWC board. Vic Ferri (music expert) has answered your question...

I have that song - it's All Messed Up by Clarence Carter from 1971.
Just gave it a listen to confirm and the lyrics match except it's "Paul loves Mary" (not Maryanne)

Jenny, glad I could help.
The song starts like this:

I went to a party the other night (yes i did)
everybody was dressed out of sight (yes they was)
disc jockey played those disco sounds
everybody was just sittin' around
talking 'bout,
Jack loves Jill but Jill loves Paul
Paul loves Mary but Mary loves John
and that's all (all messed up) all messed up...

But rather than transcribing all the lyrics, hear it for yourself. You can download the song from this page:

In case you want to find the original album, it's from his 1971 "What Your Love Means to Me" release All Messed Up is the first song on it.

enjoy!

Hi Vic I downloaded your song and I am so grateful!
It sounded great and was so nostalgic to me.
You really made my day and I thank you once again. I really don't know where else I could have found this out.
