THROWBACK THURSDAYS: THE TEMPTATIONS SING SMOKEY

Let’s go back to a simpler time in music. Back to the year 1964, when MOTOWN ruled the charts.

THE TEMPTATIONS – MY GIRL

It’s one of the greatest songs of all time, largely due to the catchiness of the opening guitar riff which, for you music nerds, is a perfect C…

THROWBACK THURSDAYS: EXPLANING PINK FLOYD TO GEN Y

WISH YOU WERE HERE is a song and album that has been written about over and over again, in meticulous detail, by people far better researched and more connected with the music than I could ever be. I don’t have any unique perspective or new light to shed on this song, which is, without argument,…

THROWBACK THURSDAYS: PUT IT IN YOUR WORD OF MOUTH

Who’s in the mood for some risque material? Read on…

AKINYELE – PUT IT IN YOUR MOUTH

What’s amazing about this RAUNCH RAP hit is how well known it is, despite having so many factors holding it back. In 1996, the popularity that sexually explicit HIP-HOP gained in the…

THROWBACK THURSDAYS: WHO WANTS CANDY?!

Sorry to interrupt, but if we’re gonna talk about the early 80s, there’s one band…infact, one song, that MUST be addressed within the discussion. Let’s get started.

BOW WOW WOW  – I WANT CANDY

Originally recorded by THE STRANGELOVES, in 1965, it’s a 1982 cover…

THROWBACK THURSDAYS: CUZ I’M A JUNGLE BROTHER

Normally, any REMIX relies, heavily, on the appeal of the original song, as far as it’s worth is concerned. It’s only on rare occasions that, through it’s re-imagining, a remix is able to insurmountably overshadow the original. In 1996, the DRUM N BASS world saw one such instance.

JUNGLE BROTHERS – JUNGLE BROTHER (TRUE…

THROWBACK THURSDAYS: LET’S DANCE TO SOME BOWIE

The single most important person in the history of popular music is DAVID BOWIE. “…he has permeated and altered more lives than any comparable figure.” – David Buckley

DAVID BOWIE – LET’S DANCE

It’s the title of both his biggest hit single, and best selling album, so it might surprise you to know that LET’S DANCE was…

THROWBACK THURSDAYS: BUZZ ON BABY SITTIN’

A song doesn’t have to change the world to get featured on THROWBACK THURSDAYS. It just needs to be old, and unique, and quite often, it helps if it’s also fun.

 

BUZZ CLIFFORD – BABY SITTIN’ BOOGIE

BUZZ CLIFFORD is regarded as a one hit wonder, despite the fact that he has remained active in music right…

THROWBACK THURSDAYS: THE SECRET REMIX FROM M/A/R/R/S

It was such a pleasure to dig this old 45 out of my collection, and drop it on DEAD AIR BASS 009 yesterday.

M/A/R/R/S – PUMP UP THE VOLUME

To put it quite simply, all forms of EDM would now have developed in the way they did without the unlikely success of this single. Recorded…

THROWBACK THURSDAYS: CAROLINE AT HER SWEETEST

Any Bostonites in the build? This one is for you!

NEIL DIAMOND – SWEET CAROLINE

It’s one of histories greatest sing-a-long songs. Originally released in 1969, it was 44 years later, in 2013, that this single peaked in popularity. Because of its reputation as a crowd pleaser, Boston’s Fenway Park began playing the song, during Red Sox…
