My Music Monday
This last Saturday, while sitting around Rebecca's house eating and drinking (not necessarily in that order), she hooked her iPad up to a bluetooth device and used her Pandora app.
It was Becky's "I Love a Man in a Uniform" station, which ironically never played in the four hours we were there. But the music was rooted in mostly classic 80's music, though some Nirvana came on.
There was great B-52's (who doesn't love "Planet Claire, especially the intro?). INXS (the good years), the Smiths, Romeo Void and others.
Yet, when ABC's "The Look of Love" rotated through, I knew it would be my selection for the week, regardless of what I said in my semi-drunken post the day before.
Someone (Morty?) raised an eyebrow to / at me when I said it was from Lexicon of Love (which I definitely knew) and I claimed it to be their debut album (hence the eyebrow question), and for the record, I was correct.
And while ABC had a handful of really good songs, I would argue they never truly did better than "The Look of Love". Part of it was the "backing" vocals, but it's just a good song that lasts all of three and one-half minutes.
It's a well written song with a great arrangement. It never gets old.
