Rockapella does “Heavenly Bank Account” in 1991.
One of the Encore channels is showing Murphy Brown AND Night Court daily and without commercials. This pleases me.
Q:oooh music asks 6, 11, 13, 20, 27
6: A song that makes you want to dance
The Foundations, “Build Me Up Buttercup”. I grew up on “oldies radio”, so I had heard this for a long time before the sudden resurgence during There’s Something About Mary, but it was fun to hear it again on Top 40 radio for a while. Meant to be played loud.
11: A song that you never get tired of
Rockapella, “Fliptop Twister”. Written (and led) by Sean Altman, don’t expect to ever hear the current group do this song (he left the group in 1997). There was a time when I would play this on constant repeat (both recordings, from “Primer” and “Two: From New York”), and there’s just something so amazing about the construction of that song.
13: One of your favorite 80’s songs
Deniece Williams, “Let’s Hear it for the Boy” from Footloose.
20: A song that has many meanings to you
Elvis Presley, “An American Trilogy”. I love this song because my mom loves this song (we both particularly love the performance from “The Alternate Aloha” live album), and it’s required to be played at top volume, particularly when the trumpets come in near the end. Many meanings, all good feelings.
27: A song that breaks your heart
Again, a hard one. I guess I’ll have to go with Green Day’s “Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)” because it was a hit around a tough time in my life relationship-wise. My first non-celebrity adoration (I’ve mentioned him in the past) was moving to another state, and I just sat alone that night and wept while that song was playing on the radio. I can’t really hear that song without thinking of him a little bit. I’m friends with him on FB, and I am over him, but that song just throws me a little punch each time.
See, I told you I’d get to the asks eventually!
Q:A song you like with a color in the title
Hmm, that one was a hard one. Given all this time, I still can’t think of one that’s a definitive. I guess I’ll have to say “Blue Hawaii”, as done by Elvis Presley, particularly on “The Alternate Aloha" album (an album I grew up with and consider my favorite live album ever).
It’s a good song, particularly on this recording with the studio chatter.
