A good ballad always got my attention growing up. Berlin found mainstream success with this chart-topper from 1986, then Jessica Simpson scored a minor hit with a cover version in 2004.
This song by Carl Douglas topped the US Billboard charts for two weeks in December of 1974. Oh ho ho ho…
Another one of those songs that should have been a hit in the US, but wasn’t, While disco songs were the meal ticket of the Bee Gees in the 70’s, it was nice to be reminded of this 1979 tune which has a bit of a Caribbean flavor to it.
One of the better bands from my neck of the woods…
One of those songs that gets stuck in your head, so this 2001 Kylie Minogue piece is appropriately named.
Whoever the person who picks out the music for Better Call Saul is, ask for a raise.
But the Herb Alpert version has a bit going for it, too. Surprised it wasn’t a hit.
Michael Damian’s cover of “Rock On” was topping the charts this week in 1989, but I always thought the original version of the song, by David Essex sixteen years earlier, was the better version.
