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.
