Song of the Day

I was going through my music library on my iPhone and here is one of the songs that I have.  

I remember when I first heard this song on “Family Ties.”


“At This Moment” is a song that was first recorded by Billy Vera & The Beaters in 1981 during a string of performances at the Roxy in West Hollywood (January 15–17) and featured on their self-titled live album, Billy and the Beaters, released that year on the American subsidiary of Japan’s Alfa Records.

Then, when the song was included on several episodes of the NBC sitcom Family Ties during the 1985-86 season as the love song associated with Alex P. Keaton (played by Michael J. Fox) and his girlfriend Ellen Reed (played by Tracy Pollan, whom Fox eventually married in real life), the exposure renewed interest in the song.

I just love this song. 

Song of the Day

I will forever be an 80’s child!

Here one of my favorites from 1985. 

“Better Be Good To Me” by Tina Turner. 

Song of the Day

Damn that Cheetoes commercial. 

The new one that is out has “Tell It To My Heart” (1987) by Taylor Dayne. So of course, I had to find it, listen to it 1, 2, 5 times and post it. 

Here are the lyrics, just in case you want to sing along. 

“Tell It To My Heart”

I feel the night explode when we’re together

Emotion overload in the heat of pleasure

Take me I’m yours into your arms

Never let me go

Tonight I really need to know

Tell it to my heart

Tell me I’m the only one

Is this really love or just a game?

Tell it to my hear

I can feel my body rock every time you call my name

The passion’s so complete. It’s never ending

As long as I receive, the message you’re sending

Body to body, soul to soul

Always feel you near

So say the words I long to hear

Tell it to my heart

Tell me I’m the only one

Is this really love or just a game?

Tell it to my heart

I can feel my body rock every time you call my name

Love, love on the run, breaking us down

Though we keep holding one

I don’t want to lose, no I can’t let you go

Tell it to my heart

Tell me I’m the only one

Is this really love or just a game?

Tell it to my heart

I can feel my body rock every time you call my name

Tell it to my heart, tell me from the start, tell it to my heart

Tell it to my heart, tell me from the start, tell it to my heart

Never make it stop

Oh, take it to the heart

Tell it to my heart

Blister in the Sun

Oh yeah, this was the song playing, with the windows down on my way home. 

“Blister in the Sun” (1983) by Violent Femmes.

They just don’t make them like this any more. 

Make it a great night!

Concert To Go To: KISS

Image result for kiss band

 

I was watching “The Voice” and KISS was performing with finalist Sundance Head and I realized that I would love to see KISS in concert.

How fun would that be? I wouldn’t say that I am a huge KISS fan, but they look like they give an amazing show.

Maybe, I need to put this on my 50 Things To Do Bucket List for 2017.

 

Fun Movie

Have you ever sat through a movie and thought to yourself, why I’m I watching this movie?

Well, “Can’t Stop The Music” is one of those movies to me.


Can’t Stop the Music is a 1980 American musical comedy film directed by Nancy Walker. Written by Allan Carr and Bronté Woodard, the film is a pseudo-biography of disco’s Village People which bears only a vague resemblance to the actual story of the group’s formation.  (From Wikipedia.com)

  • Steve Guttenberg as Jack Morell
  • Valerie Perrine as Samantha “Sam” Simpson
  • Bruce Jenner as Ron White
  • Paul Sand as Steve Waits
  • Tammy Grimes as Sydney Channing

Village People:

  • Alex Briley as Alex
  • David Hodo as David
  • Glenn Hughes as Glenn
  • Randy Jones as Randy
  • Felipe Rose as Felipe
  • Ray Simpson as Ray

Some of the music from the movie:

  • “Can’t Stop the Music”
  • “Samantha” (David London)
  • “Give Me a Break” (The Ritchie Family)
  • “Magic Night”
  • “Milkshake”
  • “Y.M.C.A.”
  • “Sophistication” (The Ritchie Family)


Ever time this movie is on TV, I’m usually there watch and singing to it.
