I apologize; I’m rocking the eighties today. Haters to the left, where I have duct tape waiting for your mouth. Ha!
Canadians: know Sass Jordan? She’s had a pretty decent career musically, has pipes and currently judges on Canadian Idol. She also used to sing with a group called The Box, which is where I first heard her. I have no idea what other songs that band sang; I know my mother had their tape, but this was track one and I always stopped there. But goddamn this track is catchy. It’s upbeat and bouncy, made for driving down the freeway on the way to the beach. And considering I have a sixteen hour shift ahead, deluding myself into a mental escape to the beach sounds perfect right about now.
But even within the happy melody, there’s a subtle message of world peace. That is one of the things that makes the eighties so fantastic to me. You’re bopping along to cheery melodies and a serious message lays between the lines.
That’s it; it’s retro week on the blog. Prepare for five more days of classics.
