  • Good mornin' sun, I say it's good to see you shinin'
    I know, my baby brought you to me
    She kissed me yesterday, hello to silver linin'
    Got spring and summer running through me

    Hey, 98.6, it's good to have you back again
    Oh, hey, 98.6, her lovin' is the medicine
    That saved me, oh, I love my baby

    Hey everybody on the street, I see you smilin'
    Must be because I found my baby
    You know, she's got me on another kind of highway
    I want to go to where it takes me

    Hey, 98.6, it's good to have you back again
    Oh, hey, 98.6, her lovin' is the medicine
    That saved me, oh, I love my baby

    You know, she's got me on another kind of highway
    I want to go to where it takes me

    Hey, 98.6, it's good to have you back again
    Oh, hey, 98.6, her lovin' is the medicine
    That saved me, oh, I love my baby Writer/s: GEORGE FISCHOFF, TONY POWERS

  • Seventhmist from 7th HeavenIf they put out a Canadian version of this song, would it need to be revised to "37?"
  • Mavis from Upper MidwestThis reminds me of winter nights studying in my room, or dreaming, and Sunday afternoons sitting in my window seat. I was a sophomore. I loved the jaunty melody...
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn February 5th 1967, "98.6" by Keith peaked at #7 (for 2 weeks) on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; it had entered the chart on December 4th, 1966 at position #90 and spent 14 weeks on the Top 100 (and for 3 of the 14 weeks it was on the Top 10)...
    He had a total of four records make the Top 100; with "98.6" being hit biggest hit, his next highest charted record was "Tell Me To My Face" (it reached #37, and is on You Tube)...
    Keith, born James Barry Keefer, will celebrate his 65th birthday in three months on May 17th (2014).
  • Winston (forrest) from Sacramento, Ca98.6 is the sun. It's what makes one healthy and normal when it comes out to give what he wants, "his baby".
  • Mark from St. Paul, MnOne of my all-time favorite songs! This song was on the air waves in Jan. and Feb. of 1967. I remember going to the St. Paul Johnson High School hockey games and cheering on the "Governors!" I always associate this song with the great Johnson hockey team of 1966-67 who ended up 2nd in the state that season!
  • Lisa from Eveleth, Mni like his voice. i have always loved this song
  • Ted from Phoenix, AzKeith doesn't have much of a singing voice, but this song works anyway as a counterbalance to the heavier stuff that was happening at the time.
  • Drew from Bloomfield, NyThe one story I heard about "98.6" was that John Lennon was a fan of this song and actually got to meet with Keith to tell him what a great song he thought it was.....by chance in a public restroom.
