Throwback Thursday: 1979

This song rose (heh) to popularity when it was used as the background music when a woman was raped on General Hospital. And then it was played in future weeks on the show to evoke the memory of that rape. Ah, the 70's.

It was also sampled in future #1 "Hypnotize" by the Notorious B.I.G. (1997)

Top Ten Tuesday: Ed Sheeran "Perfect"

Well this song is just lovely! And I know that girl from somewhere. Let me see if I can track her down...

Ah it's Zoey Deutch, the daughter of Lea Thompson and star of Before I Fall, the movie based on the book. Both of which we covered on my other podcast. Here's the episode about the book. Here's the episode about the movie

And here's the video!

New Countdown: Less Guitars, More Guitar Feelings


Imagine Dragons

It's another great episode of the Countdown. We move into a new month (though not the month you might expect!) and talk about the lack of guitar riffage on the chart these days.

Enjoy!

Throwback Thursday: 1982

Here's the second of the two instrumental songs that hit #1 in the 80's. An absolute classic for times when you need to dramatically run very slowly!

Vangelis - Chariots of Fire (5/8/82)

Top Ten Tuesday: Lil Pump "Gucci Gang"

Pretty simple song, pretty short. Not my favorite, but not the worst thing I've ever heard, either. It's catchier than I thought it would be when it started.
