Johnny Lee looks for love in all the wrong places: Today in history

Johnny Lee looks for love in all the wrong places: Today in history

It was today in 1982 that "Lookin' for Love" became Johnny Lee's first gold album. The Texas native, Branson regular and pal of Mickey Gilley found fame when his song of the same name was prominently featured in the 1980 film Urban Cowboy, which was shot in Gilley's Pasadena, Texas club.

So - where's the worst place you've looked for love?

We've all had our share of highs and lows in the search for love and affection (and usually, just some chump to pay a little attention to us). For Johnny Lee, it was in single bars and with good time lovers, strangers and friends. Maybe you look for love in the listings of Craigslist's "Missed Connections," hoping a friend will identify someone who sounds like you in "Missed Connections" so you don't have to admit that you read "Missed Connections."

I asked a few of my friends last night, "Where's the wrongest place you've looked for love?"

Where's the wrongest place you've looked for love?

"At the Fokker Family Volleyball Retreat."

Okay, so 30-year-old musicians don't take my serious questions seriously. Let's try the bartender.

Where's the wrongest place you've looked for love?

"At work."

Where?

"I was working at the 22nd Avenue Station."

Okay, a more serious answer. And how about the rightest place you've looked for love?

"When I met you."

I lie. That's my boyfriend, and I made that up because it wraps things up nicely. Enjoy some Johnny Lee, and stay out of the "Missed Connections." Godspeed!

(Watch 'til the end, and note that this song was inspired by a classroom full of second grade students.)
