Digging deep (musically speaking)

  1. The radio station to which I listen has a new feature called "Dig Deep". Listeners are meant to call in a suggestion for a song that they haven't heard or thought of for a long time. Tonight someone called in "Run Runaway". I came home and looked it up on youtube. Talk about a blast from the past!

    Yes, I remember one night when me and my friends were all getting ready at our friend Tracey's house (her Mom was of the best humor about such gatherings) and we blasted that song, dancing around her room, using our hairbrushes and curling irons as microphones!

    Those were good times!

    I had a friend named Eileen. She must've heard this song several thousand times in the few months that it was popular. I haven't seen or heard from her in years, but I think of her every single time this song is mentioned!

    Just show's HOW busy I was raising my kids in the 80's! I've never heard this song!!!! LOL

    The band that sang this song, Slade, has been together since the 1960s. I had no idea. For a long time, until 1991, they kept their original line up.

    Apparently they've been very successful in their native UK. For some reason, they never really cracked the charts in the US, except for this song and a couple that were less popular but still got some play here. According to wikipedia, a lot of musicians and bands name them as musical influences, though, including KISS and Cheap Trick.

    Oh, Mercy, you gotta be talkin about....."So here it is, Merry Christmas!", ...belting out from every UK outlet, bar..etc! Christmas songs are so great, so full of cheese, every year, they make you feel all warm!
    My bestest fav Xmas tune, Is from Kirsty McColl and The Pogues....Fairytale of New York! Thats diggin a bit.

    Otherwise, to dig deep in a non christmassy way, my most fav tune ever, v v dark......."Joy Division....Love will tear us apart"
