This next song I found in a thrift store. (Thanks Matt!) It was a 12” single that had the backside of a naked woman on the front cover and the backside of a naked man on the back cover. I had never heard of the song nor the band, but it had a 1984 copyright date so I had to get it. (One of the best years in music!) With further investigation online I discovered that the song is actually the theme to the 80’s comedy “Joy of Sex.” I can’t remember actually seeing that movie, but I’m sure it’s along the lines of “Porky’s” or “Hot Dog.” Anyway, I actually really like the song. It’s very “of its time” and a fun cheesy 80’s track.
When I go record hunting, I can often find albums as cheap as 25 cents. This frees me to take risks. I’ve bought lots of records from the 80’s from bands that I’ve never heard before but look interesting enough to try out. (This has been one of the joys of my renewed interest in vinyl…discovering new music.) The first band from this group of unheard music that I’m going to post is called Models.
Models apparently were an Australian band. That’s all I know about them. LOL! The track I’ve posted is called “Out of Mind Out of Sight,” which is the title track from the album & it is also my favorite track on that record. I’ve only listened to the album twice now and I’d have to say it’s just OK. Maybe it’ll grow on me. There’s one track in particular that sounds so much like INXS you’d be hard pressed not to believe Michael Hutchence isn’t singing.
MADONNA SUMMER - WHAT IT FEELS LIKE FOR A BAD GIRL
Well, I’m slowly trying to figure out the best way to post these songs and I’ve found a new blog design that I like better. We’ll see how long this one lasts…
Anyway, aside from the vinyl goodies I plan on posting to this website, I’ve decided to once in a while include things that I’ve found on the internet. Case in point - the latest post. Apparently someone did an entire album of mashups of Madonna/Donna Summer songs. It’s an interesting idea and a lot of fun for those of you who like mashups. I’ve posted my favorite of the tracks: “What It Feels Like For a Bad Girl” Here is the website in case you care to hear more: http://shyboymashups.com/madonna_summer.html
