Remember That Song – 12/2/19

Can you name the artist and song:

Now is the time
For you and I to cuddle close together, yeah
All through the night
I’ll save you from the terrors on the screen
I’ll make you see


Last Song: “Thank You For Being a Friend” by Andrew Gold from the album All This and Heaven Too (1978), but best known as the theme from The Golden Girls (September 14, 1985 – May 9, 1992), sung by Cynthia Fee

Adora (@Adora2000), Lisa (@gabbyg89), Blast From The Past (@BFTP4780), and 90’s Nerd (@90snerds)!!!

And if you threw a party
Invited everyone you knew
Well, you would see the biggest gift would be from me
And the card attached would say
Thank You For Being a Friend

Here is the full Andrew Gold version:

Quote of the Day: MTV

db8481cffc2173ef8ca0b3a529b191bd

This. Is. It. Welcome to MTV – Music Television. The world’s first 24 hour stereo video music channel. Just moments ago, all of the VJs and the crew here at MTV collectively hit our executive producer, Sue Steinberg, over the head with a bottle of champagne, and behold, a new concept is born. The best of TV combined with the best of radio. And starting right now, you’ll never look at music the same way again. We’ll be back to introduce the other VJs, and the other folks who are gonna be with us on MTV.

Mark Goodman speaking the first words on MTV (after the classic rocket launch, of course) 38 years ago today.
