Today's Earworm

Published on August 8 2007

I heard this tune awhile back on XM, but it came across the local "pretty music for old farts" radio station last night while I was at work. It's a new-ish song by REOSpeedwagon. Now it's stuck. I always was a sucker for a good old Midwestern-roots rock band, even if Kevin Cronin is doing the go-blonde-instead-of-going-gray thing. Wonder where he might have gotten *that* idea? :-? Okay, I know, mushy ballads and all, but what the hey? Qwitcherbitchen' back there, or I'll post "Keep on Lovin' You". You all know that one --the song to which 90% of babies in the US were conceived in the early 80's?
No, Shawny, I'm *not* going to say if YOU were. ;-)

It is very ironic that the #1 song was Elpaso. Marty robbins was one of Dads favorite Singer/Song writers. He played Elpaso so many times that I remember the words to the song.

Somehow, it's even worse wondering to what music my parents were conceived. Eww, cooties.

Um, actually it was New Years' Eve. Count back 40 weeks from my birthday.

And the #1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 that week was Marty Robbins' "El Paso".
A song about a guy who murders his true love's new boyfriend, then comes back to face the music and gets shot himself. But the true love kisses him goodbye before he dies. Now there's a romantic tune!!

I've been on the "Wagon" for years. I thought the Live clip was awsome. I didn't realize how far back they go. I would definately like to see them in concert along with all of my fellow 80's fans.
Mad, you should know that no kid even wants to think about how they arrived on this planet. Or the music involved or anything else. Do you really ever wonder what music was playing in February 1960 when....... see my point? LOL
