One week from now people in the USA will be celebrating Thanksgiving. This song by Adam Sandler from Saturday Night Live is a classic. I for one am looking forward to next week to celebrate with family.
A song by Matthew Wilder from 1983 to keep you going today and everyday. Hang in there folks.
Tom Petty, one of the great musical talents in America passed away at age 66 today. I grew up listening to him on the radio and his videos on MTV were terrific. Rest In Harmony Tom.
(It was officially announced late on Monday evening in California that Tom had passed away. Earlier reports had indicated he did but had not after some incorrect reporting.)
It’s hard to believe it’s been 30 years since Star Trek: The Next Generation first debuted. This show reignited the franchise and introduced us to Sir Patrick Stewart. It was a show that millions loved and still watch in reruns. Thanks to this show we have been given some awesome memes too.
Taylor Swift has some new music coming out tonight (8/24/2017) in advance of her new album “Reputation” coming out in November. This is from her earlier work when she was known as a country artist. This is “You Belong With Me”.
Glen Campbell is a noted musician, country music artist and entertainer. He has many top hits to his resume and his career has spanned decades. In the past few years he has battled Alzheimer’s and today he passed away at age 81. This is probably his greatest hit and most famous song, “Rhinestone Cowboy”. Rest in peace, Glen.
To go along with the theme of waking up early, here is Wham with their 80’s super hit “Wake Me Up Before You Go Go”. Seems right, doesn’t it?
I haven’t done a Tunes Tuesday in awhile so I thought I would share something new from Arcade Fire. This is a group I enjoy when they are on Saturday Night Live. Here is Everything Now.
