My Music Monday
I won't say I have bit off more than I can chew, but what I thought might have been funny now just seems like more than the potential of humiliation.
I have vacillated on if I should choose mildly embarrassing stuff - or just dive in..........things that could be worse than Andy Gibb.
I know - right? Yeah, I know what you're thinking.
I'm just doing it. I'm not sure it's going to get worse than this the rest of the month.
Back in 1983, someone thought it would be good to re-team Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta in another movie. As it would turn out, this would be the second movie in which these two "starred" which Blobby was never ever ever to see.
To be fair - I'm not 100% sure anyone saw their movie Twist of Fate. Not even themselves.
While the movie wasn't a musical (phew!), Olivia was still riding high from her Physical album two years prior, so a song or two had to be recorded for the inevitable soundtrack.
I can't tell you why I like the title track, but I do. One could argue that while it doesn't have Prince playing keyboards, with the synths and bass, it's not that far off from Stevie Nicks' "Stand Back" which came out at the same time.
It's pure synth-pop, but it still tops anything from Xanadu...............I mean, I'm guessing. I never really heard anything from that either.
