Music Fun for the Weekend

A little fun with music for the weekend.  It’s amazing how certain songs no matter how many times you hear them remind you of certain things that are completely unassociated with the song.  No matter where you hear them they automatically jog something in your memory.  I was in 7-11 the other day and Sheena Easton was on the radio.  My mind immediately thought of  George Constanza.   In fact many that immediately come to mind are from Seinfeld.  What.  Is. The. Deal. With that?  Here are some of the songs that no matter when I hear them I immediately think of something else.  I’d love to hear what song reminds you of something.  I’ve also included You Tube links for you viewing and listening pleasures.

1.       Sheena Easton – Morning Train  from Seinfeld

2.       Petula Clark - Downtown  from Seinfeld

3.       Joey Scarbury – Greatest American Hero from Seinfeld  - Some of you who are in my age group or older might actually remember the actual show Greatest American Hero (I loved that show)

4.       Kansas – Dust in the Wind – from Old School – You’re my boy blue!

5.       The Eagles/Gipsy Kings – Hotel California – from The Big Lebowski

6.       Barry Manilow – Mandy – from The Simpsons

7.       Carpentars - Superstar – from Tommy boy – “you can change it if you want to.”  “I’m good if you are”

8.       Culture Club – I’ll Tumble for Ya – Billy Madison

9.       Culture Club – Do you really want to hurt me? – Wedding Singer – yeah I like Culture Club, so what?

10.   Van Halen – Panama – Superbad

There is my top 10 of songs that automatically make me think of something else.  Be sure to leave yours.  Finally I want to talk about when people listen to music in their cars.  I sometimes when I’m by myself and the windows are down will blast some music.  Leaving Family Dollar in Roxborough today however I saw and heard something very disturbing.  People, under no circumstances should you ever blast Coolio Gangsta’s Paradise.   (Which does remind me of Michelle Pfieffer in Dangerous minds)  Not only should you not blast it, you should not be rocking out to it.  That is all.  Have a good weekend.  Until next time this is Jimbo asking why are we so blind to see, that the one’s we hurt are you and me?
