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. 


Things I like

Here are just a few things that I like.

Jiffy Cornbread by Jiffy Mix. I love sweet cornbread and Jiffy Cornbread is so easy to make.

The smell of Prell shampoo. My grandmother used Prell and I remember the glass bottle that it use to come in. I remember smelling it all the time when I visited her.

Watching TV shows that I watched as a kid again on TV now. I have had fun watching the shows that I grew up on. It’s hard to believe that these shows were on 20+ years ago.

Playing Scrabble Blast on my iPhone. I swear I play on my iPhone more than use it for real phone calls.

Side notes:

Today, Indy raced car driver, Dan Wheldon died during a racing accident at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, at the age of 33. I watched when Dan Wheldon won the Indianapolis 500 earlier this year and he looked so happy. It’s a sad day in the racing world. R.I.P. Dan Wheldon.


The Detroit Lions lost their first game of the season. No worries, I have faith that they will come back and have a better season than before. Consider this, the Lions won their last four games on the 2010 season, all of their 2011 preseason games and the first five games of this season. I think that is pretty good. As they say, “Don’t Stop Believin“.
