Billy Preston - Nothing From Nothing

"Nothing from Nothing" is a song written by Billy Preston and Bruce Fisher and recorded by Billy Preston for his 1974 album The Kids & Me. The song reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for one week in October 1974, becoming Preston's second solo chart-topper in the United States (following his 1973 hit "Will It Go Round in Circles"). It spent four and a half months on the chart.

Preston performed "Nothing from Nothing" later on Saturday Night Live - the first musical performance ever on the show. The song was also used in a Chevrolet commercial, and prominently featured in the 2008 film Be Kind Rewind.

It appears that free online dating sites not linked to social media are no longer worth the expenditure of time. Blegh, the idea of reviving a stillborn Facebook account just to use Tinder turns the stomach. Maybe it's time to crash some funerals. A whiskered gent tells the chicks there are crazy horny to shed their cares along with their petticoats.

Tinder is the Night... hey another Jackson Brown song. Nice coincidence.
