Song of the Week 8/26/11

The Kinks - "Lost and Found"

A hurricane? Hitting New York? Finally, a reason for this 80's-era Kinks song to be SOTW. I have loved this track from the moment I first played Think Visual in 1986. One of my Top 3 Kinks songs ever. (The others being "Celluloid Heroes" and "Days.")

Song of the Week 8/19/11

The Kinks - "Sunny Afternoon"

I heard this great Ray Davies song last week (not sure where, maybe WFUV or WCBS-FM) and I found myself humming it while walking to the train one morning. I heard it at work today and it seemed like a perfect track for what is a perfect summer day.

Song of the Week 8/12/11

Sir Mix-A-Lot - "Baby Got Back"

Saturday at my friend Michael's wedding, I witnessed an eight year-old shaking his whole body and coping the dance that the girls in this video do.

There's something I'll never unsee.

Song of the Week 8/5/11

Steve Perry - "Oh Sherrie"

There's nothing like watching one of your friends attempting to hit the high notes in the opening lines of this hit from 1984. As they say in the Mastercard ads, it was priceless. Thanks for the fun, Captain Quinn.

Oh, and I totally forgot about the insane intro to this video--that is priceless too.
