Song of the Day: 'It's All Up to You' by England Dan and John Ford Coley

Lee Montgomery's "James at 15" theme song  =("He ain't got no walking stick ...") was such an ear worm that I think I can be forgiven for completely forgetting that when the show became "James at 16" -- just as he got his cherry popped by a Swedish foreign exchange student who may have given him VD -- the song was replaced. (I'd actually been reminded of this in 2008 but managed to forget again!) In fact, "It's All Up to You" -- by the soft-rock duo most famous for soft-rock classics like "I'd Really Love to See You Tonight," "We'll Never Have to Say Goodbye Again" and "Nights Are Forever Without You" -- doesn't even warrant a mention in the classic series's Wikipedia page. What would my die-hard England Dan and John Ford Coley fan brother Bill make of this?!
