Now I know you have a favorite 80s song and YOU know you have a favorite 80s song. I honestly believe that you sincerely want to tell me or someone or everyone, I don't think it's a totally unreasonable request. You have favorites and you know it! Tell Me!!!!
Okay now that I am calmer ;) I actually have a reason why I want to know. As some of you may know I am working on my very first album. Its a long time coming and perhaps I may be past my prime as far as being a rock star, but I'm not aiming for rock star status. I am aiming for "I want to make an album" status. I think I'm headed in the right direction.
With the love of the 80s as my guide I really feel sincerely that I should do an album of nothing but 80s covers. Ten songs that personified the 80s for everyone. I want it felt the world over, and I want the input of all of my followers everywhere, young and old, black or white, rich or not so rich, butcher, baker, candlestick maker. I will leave no stone un-turned. I will go out into the REAL world if I have to. And that's scary enough, so have mercy people!
So here is my pitch: You tell me what your favorite 80s song is and why. I will go through the hundreds of responses (here that? hundreds!) and pick my favorites and when it comes time to do the acknowledgements on my album I will include the names of those that contributed, but showcase the ones that I picked. Sound fair?
So let's get out that vinyl, those cassettes and dust off those CD's and submit your answers today! I would like to get started working on this by the beginning of next year! Leave a comment, shoot me a DM but hurry, time's a wasting.
If you have any questions at all, please review the above statement. I will be posting songs that I have worked on in the past on YouTube here within the next few weeks so that you can hear what I sound like. Hurry and get your answers in and you might get a free album! How's that for a carrot!
