    Hey there, Priests and Nuns! We've got another Music Fun to get through today! Let's get right to it!


    Wait! You know what that bell means, don't you? No, I don't have company! We have another request!

    Nose Norton writes in:

    I'd love to hear Wonderin' by Neil Young And The Shocking Pinks. Great rockabilly.

    Yeah, I loved The Beverly Rockabillies! Granny would put moonshine in Jethro's lunch all'a time. Here's your electronic dedication!

LOL I can tell you're feeling better!

Thanks for playing this. Neil looks so messed up in this video. LOL. Great, fun song.

    Now, let's git goin' on the countdown! ;\)

Suddenly, I'm a freshman again. Synchronicity was such a huge album in 1983. Personally, I don't think that it's aged all that well, but that could be due to overplay on my part back in the day. This song is an undeniable classic, and I remember it being my favorite from the album.

I remember hearing this one back then. Good song. Dave Edmunds was grouped in with new wave artists Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe, and Marshall Crenshaw in the early 80's. I think I remember Captain America's girlfriend Bernie Rosenthal being a fan. We'll have to recommend "Crawling From The Wreckage" to PPP for his 70's Music Fun.

I remember this song quite well, but I don't recall the name Glass Tiger at all. It's still pretty good 80's pop. Better than I remembered. Great vocals.

I pity the fool that don't remember this song. This is a true classic, though it gets goofed on a bit lately. 45 million views on youtube, though. You can't deny it's inpact on 1982 pop culture.
And Rocky III was great. Hulk Hogan as Thunderlips, Mr. T as Clubber Lang, and Sylvester Stallone as Rocky Balboa. One of the biggest movies and biggest songs of the early 80's.

And you know it's a big hit if Weird Al parodies it. This one is pretty funny. Al really is good at writing lyric. They really flow, and I still snicker at "goes out back and beats up on the liverwurst."

This is a great song, and Stewart does a good job with it. He is a singer I've gotten sick of though.

    Well, that's it for another week! Keep those cards, letters, and requests comin' in, and keep yer hands on the ground and your feet kickin' at the stars! ;\)

Although this song is a bit bleaker than what's usually played on 80's Music Fun, I think Dirty Blvd by Lou Reed is a great 80's song. Any chance of playing it on the video jukebox?

Yeah, I'm DEFINITELY feelin' better, Nose. Thanks! \:\) I always crack up when I hear Weird Al's song, too. It's one of his better hits, and deserved its own video and far more radio play. I had to rely on a fan-made video for that song.

And I'll get to your request next weekend! \:\)
