A Theme Song For The True Party Animals

This song is definitely a theme song, for the true Party animals, of the world, which was a hit in the mid 70's, from a band named, Boston.
There were a couple of popular partying places, in my home town, where a small town girl could go to hang out, and drink alcohol, because some of her friends turned 18, a few years before she did, and could buy it for her.
Anyways, enough said, now enjoy the video.

Are you a true party animal?

Pop Muzik Was The Beginning Of The Wave 80's Sound

I liked this song, when I first heard it, because it was different from the usual 70's sounding songs. Robin Scott (British), wrote this song as a summing up, of the different styles of pop music, from over a few decades, which were the 50's, 60's, & 70's.
It was, in my opinion, the beginning of the New Wave sound, which stood out more, during the 80's, with mostly European bands, on the American billboard charts, although there were also a few American bands, who sounded retro, which was a lot like the New Wave sound from the UK.

One Of My Favorite Heart Songs

I remember when I first heard this song, I was going through some emotional things, which involved, not getting along very well, with my mom.
I know that when daughters hit a certain age, they will try to assert their independence, toward their mom or their dad, which in my case ended up being toward my mom, because my dad had not been a part of my life, at that time, since he had decided that it would be better for him to move to another state, where a lot of his family lived, back when I was 4 years old.
This song was comforting to me, whenever I heard it play, and I am sure that it had a hand, in helping me to realize, that I would probably be better off, if I lived somewhere else, say a different state maybe, when I turned 18, in about a few years ......

Were you a fan of the band Heart? If so, what was your favorite song, or songs from them?

Don't Call Us, We'll Call You

This song was one of Sugar Loaf's top 10 hits. It rose to #9, on the U.S. billboard charts, in 1975.
When I was a teenager, I looked forward to Sundays, because that was when, Casey Kasem's top 40, would air, on our local A.M. radio station, WPDM, which finally acquired an F.M. station, about a year or two, before I went into the Army, and left my home town, for good.
I can't remember, what year it was, when my older brother won the contest from that radio station, where the prize was the top 40 show, which was on a double record album. I use to play it, when he was working at the library, unknown to him, until now.
Incidentally, I am not lucky. I never win anything of significance. Oh well, no matter. I am lucky in love, although I had to wait for it. Yes, good things come to those who wait, or who learn the hard way, like I did. Shoulda, coulda, woulda.
Sometimes, I would have 3 or 4, of my friends at my house, when the top 100, would be on the radio, and we would try to guess, what that weeks #1 song would be. The rule being that you had to guess it, before it got below a certain number.
This video is from a rock show, which consisted of band members from the 70's, who are singing, their top 10, hit songs. I was hoping to find a video, with the original band members singing it live, but unfortunately, I don't think there was a live performance, that was put on film, of that. If I am lucky enough to find it, in the future, I will definitely post it, for you to view.
Fingers crossed, everyone :)
