I watched the video today and it's such a classic, you have to play Paul Simon - You Can Call Me Al.

How about a request for The Valley Road by Bruce Hornsby?

I'd like to request Sally MacLennane by the Pogues. It's not a song or band I knew of in the 80's, but I became very fond of them in the 90's.
Quote:All right, gentlemen! Here are your requests!
You Can Call Me Al
Love this video, one of the best tunes from the 80s.
The Valley Road
Thanks for the request, I never really understood what this song was about and the video confuses me further.
I used to listen to these guys quite a bit. I can't recall if I've heard this before but I liked it. I wish they had put out more albums.
Quote:Thanks for the requests, fellas! And I want you ALL to remember, I will play ONE request from each of you a week, but you can request songs in as MANY weeks in a row as you wish, and I'll play all the requests I get! Now, it's MY turn...
Quote:Men At Work
Great tune, I've always liked their sound. It's got a New Wave feel for sure but it's very distinct at the same time. Their lead singer has a great voice as well.
This one always gets stuck in your head. Believe it or not I don't think I have ever watched Footloose in its entirety.
Very cool tune, hadn't heard this one before. Always good to hear some Buckingham on that guitar.
St. Elmo's Fire (Man In Motion)
Catchy song, a real epic 80s kind of ballad.
Quote:Hall & Oates
I haven't heard this in a bit. I almost forgot is was even by Hall and Oates actually. I noticed G.E. Smith in the video on the guitar. Didn't know he played with them I just recall him being the lead guitarist for the SNL band in the 90s.
Since I'm thinking about Men At Work how about a request for It's a Mistake for next time?
