Here is a great song by John Fogerty. The film clip is very nostalgic with lots of historical baseball clips.

Louis Jordan’s Caldonia
This was from 1946, almost a decade before Little Richard, Chuck Berry and Elvis Presley.
Sister Rosetta Tharpe – Up Above My Head I Hear Music In The Air
This is the song being used in the Target kids ad on TV.
It’s called Forevermore by Katie Herzig.
I was just watching Channel [V] and their [V]intage program which promised to play some of the great music hits of the past. It was amazing as they went back all the way to 2009. That year was such a long time ago I almost forgot about the great music that came from that era. It’s amazing just how much music has changed and evolved in the nine months since 2009 ended and how little airplay that the songs made way back in 2009 get on the radio these days.
Of course I am being facetious here and I wonder why Channel [V] would bother to have a show dedicated to playing songs from the past if they are only going to go back one whole year to find them. It could have something to do with kids today who seem to think that any song older than a couple of months is really, really ancient.

The 80s was a time of mullets and good music. Recently I was arguing with some Gen Y’ers that 80s music was better than the stuff that they listen to. Back then there was no such this as auto-tune or sampling, the artists actually had to be able to sing and play their instruments.
- Aerosmith – Dude Looks Like A Lady
- Whitesnake – Here I Go Again
- Steve Perry – Oh Sherry
- Def Leppard – Rocket
- INXS – Never Tear Us Apart
- Bad English – When I See You Smile
- Bon Jovi – You Give Love A Bad Name
- Joan Jett – I Love Rock N Roll
- Michael Jackson – Thriller
- Dire Straits – Money For Nothing
- Peter Gabriel – Sledgehammer
- The Rolling Stones – The Harlem Shuffle
- Madonna – Papa Don’t Preach
- Cyndi Lauper – Girls Just Want To Have Fun
- Bros – When Will I Be Famous
Sorry, the last couple of songs were a bit silly but they are still better than Justin Bieber. I think I will do another post on this topic a bit later and list such awesome acts as Flock Of Seagulls, Tiffany, Martika, Debbie Gibson, Roxette etc that are still better than the rubbish that Fox FM and Mix play on the radio.
This is reputed to be the worst album cover of all time. It is a shocker but what do you expect from the mid-70s. There are many album covers that are just as bad such as…
(It was the 70s, everyone had that wallpaper)
I think that’s enough for now… I may post some at a latter date.
