Jeff notes: [Actor/drummer/singer] Shannyn Sossamon had been part of band at one time [co-founder]. Her sister is still with them, I think [she is]. The friend who saw them live said that they are as good on stage as on cd. New to me. Pleasant, ethereal/new age female-oriented.

Uptempo version with more instruments in the mix.
The Turtles: "You Showed Me"
Salt-N-Pepa: "You Showed Me"
