My Music Monday

I've diving into at least one of those '80's classics - or what I think is on that list.

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.

One of my all time favorites!! And the video is just as good. It always makes me think of another big favorite - Mary's Prayer by Danny Wilson

I love this song, but it feels like forever since I've heard it.

I don't think I have ever seen the video for this song.
