Sunday Serenade: Jane Wiedlin, Milli Vanilli, Nightmare on Elm St, and more!

Time for another Sunday morning dose of random songs that I’ve been listening to this past week! Welcome to Sunday Serenade — now let’s crank the jams up with…

“Blue Kiss” by Jane Wiedlin — I used to have a huge crush on Wiedlin after seeing her in Bill and Ted as a kid. Never heard this song before, and I’m kind of digging it’s sappy goofy loveness.

“The Moon and the Superhero” from Hancock — Never really thought I’d find excellent superhero music from this movie, to be honest, but this track has a fun intensity and charm about it that is sorely lacking in many other dour OSTs.

“Too Many Broken Hearts” by Jason Donovan — Bring on the ballads, 1989! My favorite year of the ’80s, by the way.

“Baby Don’t Forget My Number” by Milli Vanilli — I don’t think I can listen to this and NOT hear Weird Al’s plumber song.

“Two High” by Moon Taxi — Unusual mix of instruments and that refrain uses a much lower tone than you’d expect… and still manages to be dang catchy.

“The Attic” from A Nightmare on Elm Street (NES) — You’d think that a scary game on the NES would have a horrible, depressing soundtrack, but this one is rather underrated (and kind of perky in spots, as this track attests!).

“The Very First Time” by Robin Beck — They just don’t put shredding guitar solos into the middle of romantic ballads these days, do they? Amazing song, can’t believe I just now heard it.

One thought on “Sunday Serenade: Jane Wiedlin, Milli Vanilli, Nightmare on Elm St, and more!
