Saturday Dance Party.

My friend Tim in Ohio reminded me of this song this morning. This is one of my favorite Donna Summer tracks and reminds me of my days of living in the Boston area. I used to crank this up on Kiss 108FM. A lot.

Here’s Donna Summer with “Love’s About To Change My Heart”.


I’m in a dancing mood tonight. From 1995, here’s Dreamworld with “Movin’ Up”.

Monday Music.

I heard this song whilst sitting in Ruby Tuesday in Durham, N.C. last night. It caught my ear, so I Shazam!-ed and discovered that the artist’s name is Lenka and the title of the track is “You Will Be Mine”.

I love smooth, dreamy vocals. She reminds me of Imogen Heap. And I really like the train-like syncopation of the percussive track.

The track is from 2011. Enjoy!

Retro Dance.

I remember dancing to this song at a club in Erie, Pa. and about losing my mind. Ah, my college days.

Here’s Agnetha Faltskog with “I Won’t Let You Go”.

Fellow blogger Dave2 from Blogography recently posted a new music video on his Facebook timeline. Not seeing the name of the artist when I clicked through the link this morning, it was a few moments before I let out a gleeful squeal. I recognized the voice instantly.

Agnetha Fältskog is back! In May, one of the “A”s from ABBA will be releasing her latest album, “A”. In the meanwhile, here is her first release, “When You Really Loved Someone”.

I have already pre-ordered the album on iTunes. And I’ll probably squeal again.

At 2:45 in the video, I am very much reminded of Agentha and Bjorn back in the day.


The last single ever released by Abba was “Under Attack”, from their album “The Singles”. “Under Attack” has always been one of my favorite Abba tunes, though it is kind of obscure. Last year it was remixed by Matt Pop and it’s kind of fun!

Here it is for your enjoyment.

Cherry Wine.

Let’s kick off Valentine’s Day with a happy song from the 80s. I have always loved the bass line in this track.

Friday Dance Party: “Feels So Good”.

Since the mall is playing really bad versions of Christmas carols over a low-fidelity speaker hanging from ceiling tiles, it’s time for a little Friday feel-good music. From 2011, here is Armin van Buuren teamed up with Nadia Ali and “Feels So Good”.

I’m a big fan of Nadia Ali’s vocals and Armin’s production on this track and the video has a sexy vibe that I thoroughly enjoy as well, though I’m always a sucker for sexy spies in formalwear.

Monday Pep Up.

One of my favorite Eurythmics’ tracks, from 1983’s album “Touch”, here is “Right By Your Side”. I clearly remember this video because I was enthralled with the trumpet player’s mustache when I was a wee young gay.
