Sunday Serenade: Fast Food Rockers, Hurts, Art of Noise, 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…

“Fast Food Song” by Fast Food Rockers — This song is not high art. Not even close. It’s borderline annoying… and catchy. Of course, it’s not high class food, either. But both are tasty and weirdly appealing.

“Main Theme” from For a Few Dollars More — I can’t believe I haven’t heard this yet, especially after being infatuated with Morricone’s other classic works. This is going on the MP3 player for sure.

“Wonderful Life” by Hurts — Sometimes I find myself in the middle of listening to a song that that I’ve started to tune out, only to have it arrest my attention and demand that I rewind and start over. I did so with this one, and it definitely won me over.

“Muscle Beach” by Ace Marino — “The ’80s are strong in this one,” one commenter wrote. Yes. Yes it is.

“Close (To The Edit)” by Art of Noise — What is this glorious madness? It is my current joy, my friends!

“Don’t Tell Me” by Blancmange — It’s so great to keep discovering ’80s hits that I’ve never heard before. You can only listen to “Don’t You Forget About Me” so many times, you know.

  1. Wow. I’ve never seen that video for Close to the Edit before. It’s genuinely disturbing. Wonder if there’s a version online in better quality?

    Piano bashing used to be a thing that happened at fairs when I was growing up. I saw a couple of uprights destroyed at fetes but the highlight was a Grand Piano I saw smashed to pieces with hammers at some big event in the center of the city near where I lived. Those were different times…

  2. Ennio Morricone is the closest thing we have to a modern Beathoven or Mozart. There is an out of print cd done by AllenToussaint that is really great I fond one in a bargain cd bin.
