Hey there cats an' kittens, an' welcome to the foist installment of Music Fun! Paste Pot Pete and I will be alternating weeks, and I got the '80's assignment. I'm too old to have listened to much music after 1990, so that suits me JUST fine.
Now, a fair warning here... You MAY be overcome with nostalgia when you listen to some of this music. It may not hit now, but it WILL hit! It happened to ME during a Weird Al video on VH-1 about 20 years ago. I was suddenly overcome, missing family and other loved ones who are no longer with us. I actually had TEARS streaming down my face! I'm not telling you this to depress you, but to let you know. You MAY want to view/listen to these songs in private, especially if it's been 20-30 years since you last heard them.
Now, let's get on with the music. I've got six songs lined up, and I'll CONTINUE having that many every week. For the first 10 weeks, I'm going to go through every year during the '80's, and after that, it'll be a hodge-podge. I'll ALSO try to have the original music video where and when I can, but it's not always possible. When I cannot, I'll at least try to have the lyrics. Whichever I choose, I'll choose the version with the best sound for that song. Now, put on yer listenin' ears, cats, 'cause HERE WE GO!
Tired Of Toein' The Line
One Fine Day
Hope you enjoyed this sampling from 1980! Paste Pot Pete's gonna Quantum Leap all of you ten years into the future (still the past) to the 1990's next week!
The Carole King song One Fine Day made me do a double take as that originally came out in the 60's. But I looked it up and King did cover her own song in 1980. Good job! I'm a big Carole King fan if that's wrong I don't want to be right. When I was a kid my older brother and sister played "Really Rosie" all the time. And as I've gotten older I love her debut album "Tapestry" one of the greatest albums ever.
P.S. If we're Quantum Leaping I hope our brains don't get "swiss-cheesed"
