Re: Future Retro: Sheena Easton, “Fabulous”

Thu, 04 Sep 2008 00:53:56 -0000

Exactly. They can't possibly top the originals but I don't think any artist could. I think Sheena's album was probably meant more for a younger audience hence the concentration on mechanical beats and sometimes laid-back vocals. Cover albums are a dime a dozen but I was glad when this surfaced as part of Sheena's discography. Something different in a sea of soulless A/C she had been doing for years.

"All peripheral Jacksons". Ooh, I think I peed a little bit with that one. But Reebie's "Centipede" was actually kind of cool in a lousy way. LaToya has some fiercely devoted fans who collect all of her old vinyl albums and 12"ers.

Hopefully my defense of them will help me to avoid the wrath of Joe Jackson's belt.

Well, this is where we differ. I want to talk about Gloria Estefan ALL the time.

In fact, I'm thinking about her right now.

"Hi, Gloria. How are you today ? What a nice poncho you have on. Pretty."

Holy crap ! A bootleg mixtape column. I'm loving it !

Not that I have ever in my life listened to a bootleg concert.

*nervous grin*

As the ever-hip former-Commodore would say at the American Music Awards . . . "OUTRAGEOUS !"

Hello . . . is it me you're looking for ?

Oh, I am ALL over that ! Don't forget their extra-special version of The Power Of Love.

So I guess Vinyl Record Day didn't go over as well as I'd hoped. That's disappointing. I was sure more people would write columns and check out all the participating blogs and sites.

What a wonderful column. lol.

Re: Sugar Water: Procrastination — Now, Later, Always, Forever

I love this column. I was hoping to leave a clever comment here but I think I'll put it off until tomorrow. Maybe the next day.

Re: Dw. Dunphy On… Madonna

Sat, 26 Jul 2008 00:03:53 -0000

Well, because of my magnificent obsession with Madonna I don't normlly engage in much conversation about her because I don't think she needs defending. People either get her or they don't. And if they don't it's really too bad for them because she's consistently made some of the best pop music in recent history. That's a fact regardless of whether anyone gives her credit for it or not.

With regard to her image, if people think that's all there is to her then they're idiots who are missing the point. The image has always been to get people's attention so they'll listen to her music and what she has to say. For people to take it so seriously only proves her right. If you dangle something shiny in front of people they take notice.

People dismiss her incredibly solid 25 year music career without ever really having heard her music. That's just ignorant. Elvis was flashy too so let's dismiss him. The Beatles had funny haircuts so I guess they don't count either. Detractors rail about her image changes yet they're the ones paying so much attention to it.

Anyone who can't get past an artist's image or "gimmick" doesn't deserve the terrific music behind it.

Re: Eight Great Ways to Piss Off a Ballplayer

Itching powder in the jockstrap is still a classic as well. Also, forgetting to invite him to the circle jerk in the locker room after the game. Jocks hate that.

Re: Future Retro: George Michael

Tue, 15 Jul 2008 02:55:03 -0000

Yeah, that's one of George's better rare tracks. Worth searching for.

Re: Future Retro: George Michael

Thanks for the comments, kids. I think there are some great songs on these albums and I hope people who have skipped these releases because of bad word of mouth will decide to check them out. There's something worthy on all of them. That's the whole purpose of this column.

Re: CHART ATTACK!: 7/14/90

Fri, 11 Jul 2008 23:45:59 -0000

Where to start ?

Taylor is an underrated goddess with a voice like as strong as steel. She's so good she can make even a Diane Warren tune sound a little funky.

I admit "The Power" may not have aged well since I personally prefer "Rhythm Is A Dancer". But I still like them both enough to hunt down all of their various mixes.

OK, so NKOTB released mostly utter fluff. However, they did a few nice guilty-pleasure songs including "Step By Step", "Right Stuff" and . . . umm . . .

Re: Lost in the ’80s: Josie Cotton

Fri, 11 Jul 2008 05:05:45 -0000

yes, I meant to say it was "Johnny" that they performed. There's a low quality live version on Return To The Valley Of The Go-Go's.

Re: Lost in the ’70s: Blondie, “Union City Blue”

Fri, 11 Jul 2008 00:25:41 -0000

Yeah, that's a great slightly-lesser-known Blondie track. It hasn't been played to death like a lot of their other tracks. Although, if you're going to die I can't think of a better way than by hearing Heart Of Glass for the millionth time.

Once I had a love, it was a gas . . .

Re: @#$% Preconceptions: Eurythmics, “In the Garden”

Fri, 11 Jul 2008 00:21:45 -0000

Well, I worship at the altar of Eurythmics but I must say I didn't care for their early stuff as a duo. The first album left me cold. But once things started to gel with the second album, I was hooked. I had enjoyed a couple of Tourists tracks so I knew Annie was an emerging Goddess. And that's exactly what she turned out to be.

I think for the most part Eurythmics got better as they went along. Trying different styles, collaborations, etc. I thought the live performances they gave after their reformation were incredible. They were in full possession of their powers and comfortable with who they were.

Viva La Lennox !

Somewhat Fascinating Side Note:

The Go-Go's used to perform this song (badly) in their early punk days.

Oh, Kim Carnes !

All the boys think she's a spy . . .

Re: When Good Albums Happen to Bad People: Ted Nugent, “Cat Scratch Fever”

Thu, 10 Jul 2008 00:37:10 -0000

It's funny (well, not really) that Ted rails about and homosexuals since he probably is one. That's where that kind of thinking comes from. People hiding who they really are by deflecting the attention onto someone else.

Glass houses, bitch !

Re: The Friday Mixtape: 7/04/08

Sat, 05 Jul 2008 00:11:18 -0000

Hmm . . . a lot of these songs seem to be about America. Weird coincidence ? Very cool, though.

Whitney Houston also did a killer version America The Beautiful. FYI.

Donna Summer ! Sister Sledge ! Earth, Wind & also Fire !

I'm having a Boogie Wonderland in my pants. Disco-gasm !

Re: Lost in the ’70s: The Ethel Merman Disco Album

Thu, 26 Jun 2008 23:41:37 -0000

After finally getting my hands on this album (thanks fellow bloggers) I found that it isn't as infamously bad as people have always said. Ethel has the voice and everyone knows that. Granted, this is typical disco beat territory but it's campy fun to listen to.

It's debatable but I don't think this is the gayest post ever. Close, however. Voters, what are your thoughts ?

Re: White Label Wednesday: Mr. Mister, “Is It Love”

Wed, 25 Jun 2008 23:59:12 -0000

Oh, how I LOVE Mr. Mister. They produced two back-to-back 80's classics as well as a number of other good songs that are worth checking out. I saw them opening for Tina Turner in Memphis, TN on the later leg of her Private Dancer tour when Mr. Mister had just gone supersonic with their first huge hit. They were supposedly going to do a fourth album that never materialized. I know that Richard Page has gone on to do a few other projects with that great voice of his. And how sad is it that I actually already have the Is It Love (Extended Mix) ? Very sad indeed. But happy times for me.

I also enjoyed their sitcom, Sister Sister.
