Remember That Song – On Hiatus

Hi Everybody. After 7 years of the popular Remember That Song series, we are going to have to take a break for a while. I am so burned out right now, and have a lot going on in my personal life, so it is too difficult for me to pick out a song and lyrics every day. I am going to have to step back for now, and focus on the Return of the podcast, and on writing articles, which is why I got into blogging to begin with. Once I get the energy back up, Remember That Song will make a most triumphant return.

However, if anybody would like to volunteer to take over this Remember That Song series, either permanently, or for at least a week at a time, please email me at with the song and the lyrics you’d like to use. I will give you full credit, and we all would appreciate it.

We just want to dance here
Someone stole the stage

Top 40 Songs This Week: August 8, 1987 – Songs 40-31

It’s been far too long. At long last, we Return to the Top 40 countdown. This week, we’ll go back 30 years, and see what the 40 most popular songs were. At this time, I was getting ready to start my senior year of high school. I have a ton of great memories, and I loved the music back then. So, let’s Return to August 8, 1987, and check out songs 40-31 today. You can click on the song title to watch the video, and you can click on the album cover to buy/listen to the song from Amazon.

40. “Didn’t We Almost Have It All” by Whitney Houston

She did have it all, then lost it. And we lost one of the greatest voices of our generation. This is a beautiful, sad song.

39. “Wipe Out” by The Fat Boys and The Beach Boys

For all the haters of Beach Boy ’80s songs, I bet you’re begging for Kokomo now!

38. “Funkytown” by Pseudo Echo

In my opinion, this is one cover song that is as good as the original. This version is a little more rock than disco.

37. “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You” by Michael Jackson and Siedah Garrett

A much overlooked tune from Jackson’s Bad album. A very nice duet.

36. “Mary’s Prayer” by Danny Wilson

No, Danny Wilson is not a person. It is a Scottish pop group. This is one of those songs that I had forgotten about until I just heard it for the first time in a while.

35. “Happy” by Surface

Finally, a Happy song I approve of! This R&B tune is way better than Bobby McFerrin’s “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”, which is a million times better than the recent song “Happy” by Pharrell.

34. “Here I Go Again” by Whitesnake

When you hear the words ’80s Rock, this is one of the first songs that come to mind. Great song, and great video. So many of us teenage boys really wanted to be that car.

33. “Since You’ve Been Gone” by The Outfield

Future candidate of the Return to the ’80s podcast’s segment, ‘Play This, Not That.’ Sure, “Your Love” is a great song, but The Outfield has many other great songs, which never get played. This was one of them. It reached #11 and never gets played.

32. “Give to Live” by Sammy Hagar

This hit was off of the Red Rocker’s album I Never Said Goodbye, his only solo album released while he was with Van Halen. This is one of my favorites by him.

31. “Don’t Disturb This Groove” by The System

I love me some late ’80s R&B, and this is no exception.

And unfortunately, I will have to disturb this groove by stopping the countdown for today. We will be back with songs 30-21.

What do you think of this countdown so far? What were you doing this week in 1987? I’d love to hear from you.

Quote of the Day: Major League

Heywood: [Hayes has just reached on an infield single] You really knocked the crap out of that one.
Willie Mays Hayes: Oh, I plan to get at least a double out of this.
[shows Heywood his black gloves]
Willie Mays Hayes: I bought a hundred of these. One for every base I’m gonna steal. Excuse me while I take my first step toward the Hall of Fame.
Heywood: My ass.
Harry Doyle: [Hayes takes his lead off first base] We don’t know where Hayes played last year, but I’m sure he did a hell of a job.
Heywood: Real hard to steal second with your shoe untied.
Harry Doyle: [Hayes looks down, then gets thrown out by the pitcher] Throw to first… Hayes is picked off! Personally, I think we got hosed on that call.

Happy 55th birthday to Wesley Snipes!!!

Quote of the Day: Golden Girls

In honor of Estelle Getty, who was born on this day in 1923 (July 25, 1923 – July 22, 2008), here are some of her quotes as Sophia on Golden Girls.

Dorothy: Well Blanche is certainly taking her sister’s novel better than I would. I would kill my sister Gloria if she ever wrote about my sex life.

Sophia: You would kill your sister over a pamphlet?

Rose: Belief can be powerful. I had a sty once, and every night I would close my eyes and think about it getting smaller and smaller until it went away!

[Sophia leans on the fridge with her eyes closed]

Ma, what’s wrong?

Sophia: Nothing. I’m just trying to make Rose go away.

Blanche: I have writer’s block. It’s the worst feeling in the world.

Sophia: Try ten days without a bowel movement sometime.

Sophia: If I met a man who was over seventy but still looked half-way decent, I’d be on my back faster than you could say, “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!”

Happy 62nd birthday to Dan “Pee Wee” Monahan!!!
