I am Jack's smirking....not that Ed Norton. Sorry.

"Honeymooners Rap" - Joe Piscopo & Eddie Murphy
Hope everyone had happy holidays! In 1985 Piscopo released the comedy album New Jersey (Bon Jovi had the same idea in '88) and this track was included as part of it. He and Murphy recorded the song during their Saturday Night Live days over at NBC. A lot of people think SNL went into the toilet after the original Not Ready For Prime-Time Players left but I disagree. Piscopo and Murphy were always must-see TV to me. Frank Sinatra even personally endorsed Joe Piscopo's impersonation of him and called him the Vice-Chairman Of The Board. Here's the tracklisting with Joe playing the role of Ralph Kramden to Murphy's Ed Norton of the classic Honeymooners TV show @320 kbs:
1 Honeymooners Rap (Captain Video Version)
2.Honeymooners Rap (King Of The Case)
3.Honeymooners Rap (Single Version)

P.S.- Anyone happen to have the New Jersey LP?

Silly Love Songs

"Your Wildest Dreams (LP Version) & "I Know You're Out There Somewhere (Remix)" - Moody Blues
Rarely does a song get a sequel, but such is the case here with this 1988 Moody Blues song. Your Wildest Dreams was a #9 hit for the band in '86 and told of a man's remembrance of his first love and wondering if she ever thought of him. In the latter song he says,"Wait a minute! I still got the hots for this chick!", and vows to find her. Sappy. Hollywood. Blah. But I still like the songs. This is the full album version of I Know You're Out There Somewhere that ended up as many a 12" single and labeled as a remix. The song reached #30 on the Hot 100 here in the USA and #50 in the UK. Your Wildest Dreams was edited down for radio by about a minute or so from this LP version. Next update: more Rom.

Ba ba ba ba ba... ba ba ba ba ba... ba

"Too Late For Goodbyes (Extended Version)" - Julian Lennon
The first son of John Lennon's debut album Valotte debuted in October of '84 and spawned 2 hit singles: the title track and this song which peaked at #5 in the US, #6 in the UK and #13 in Australia. Reportedly his father once called Julian a mistake and elaborated further that he came out of a whiskey bottle on a Saturday night. All Julian was saying was give him a chance(the lousy puns are back). As such, Julian hung out more with ex-Beatle Paul McCartney more than he did his dear ol' Da'. Julian was left out of his father's will after his murder. On a lighter note it seems Julian today has a peace treaty with his step-mother Yoko Ono and his half-brother, Sean. Yoko looks good, doesn't she?:
I kid, I kid.

Rolling with it.

"Holding On (Dance Mix)" - Steve Winwood
Back today (finally) with a remix of Winwood's #11 hit from 1989 from the LP, Roll With It. Holding On also reached #1 on the Adult Contemporary charts and #2 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks. This almost 10 minute mix was done by Tom Lord-Alge who also engineered and mixed the entire album. Lord-Alge has worked with everyone from Sarah McLachlan to Marilyn Manson. Now that's a resume! I'm feeling a bit under the weather today and have been for most of the week so the humor factor is low today. TT: 9:52. Enjoy!

The Living what?

Rom Spaceknight #40-46
Back with more Rom comics. The creative team remains the same: Bill Mantlo and Sal Buscema. Doctor Strange turns up in #41 and 42 along with the Living Tribunal. Look for the Soviet Super Soldiers in this batch also as the Wraiths heat up the frigid Soviet Union. Same drill as before, download comical (if you don't already have it) and use it to open the files after you have extracted them. Enjoy!

Got my eye on you.

"Keep Your Eye On Me (Extended Version)" - Herb Alpert
Herb joined forces with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis (the force behind Janet Jackson's 80's fame and ex-Time bandmates) for the album with the same title as today's featured song in 1987. Jam and Lewis arranged this track as well as sang and played keyboards. Two other Time alumni, Jellybean Johnson and Jerome "Bring me my hat" Benton contributed guitar and vocals also, in that order. The trumpet is all Herb. Alpert was also the "A" in A&M Records until he and the "M", Jerry Moss, sold the company to Polygram in 1989. This song didn't blaze up the charts but I prefer it over later Billboard smash, Diamonds, with Janet Jackson. Running time 5:53.

The secrets that you keep.

"Talking In Your Sleep (Special Remix)" & "One In A Million (Dance Mix)"- The Romantics
Hailing from Detroit, Michigan, these guys formed on Valentine's Day 1977. Yes, genius that's how they got their heartfelt moniker. Stand up if you've never heard What I Like About You. Sit down, wise-ass. How much hairspray do you think they consumed in the 80's? At least they didn't do a fancy Pepsi commercial with big fireballs shooting all over the place. Talking In Your Sleep hit #3 on the Hot 100 in 1983 and spent two weeks at #1 on the Hot Dance Club Play chart. One In A Million was also a top-10 hit the same year. Both of these tracks come from their most successful album, In Heat, and were remixed by John "Jellybean" Benitez with a running time of 5:35 and 5:28.
