I heard this on the radio this morning and it’s something you don’t hear all the time. This is a powerful song with terrific imagery. One of The Police’s great tunes.
I heard this song on the radio driving to work on a Thursday morning and realized that the music tells a great story in as much as the lyrics. It’s interesting and has a great groove to it.
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.)
This song is a classic that has stood the test of time. It’s 30 years old as of this year. Yeah I know people my age are saying no its not but there is no denying it. Rick Astley brings you one of the top 20 songs of the 1980’s, well at least I think so.
In the spirit of my fiddle picture I present to you Dexy’s Midnight Runners “Come On Eileen” which has a great fiddle arrangement throughout the tune. The fiddle is one of the great instrument in pop music because it can add some spark to any song. This particular song is one of the greats of the 1980’s.
“Whip It” is one of Devo’s most popular songs. The video is just weird in all the right ways. It along with other songs inspired “Weird Al” Yankovic’s “Dare To Be Stupid”.
Being a prescription glasses wearer all my life wearing sunglasses most anytime is not always a good thing. My preferred style is Wayfarers from Ray Ban. This one hit wonder from 1984 has held up over time and I hear it a lot on the music station I listen to in Chattanooga.
