Every time I show someone Songs of the Zodiac, they inform me halfway through the second song that they're not watching the whole thing. They invariably wind up watching the whole thing, usually singing along by the end.

@Goyim Aw, bummer! Nevertheless, I'll be scrutinizing my Winter Hell neighbors to see if I can decide who that song was about.

Holy crap, Michael Campbell was in "Total Recall"? Worlds are smashing together. ... Seems like there's a county jail in Somerville, IN.

@The Oscar's link from Motown Encyclopedia is most informative. books.google.co.uk...

Happy birthday joe!!! I sing "Somerville" by the Pernice Brothers for you:
I'm sick of the cynical
I'm sick of the fashion show
The vapid and overblown someone someone tells me I ought to know...

"[Michael Campbell] later became an actor under the name Michael Champion, appearing in 'Total Recall,' 'Toy Soldiers,' and 'Beverly Hills Cop,' among other films." !! (from the link that @Vincent Nifigance posted)

I believe Monica is a big fan of Denise Lasalle.

@PRB: One of the albums I'm playing today was purchased from Monica's own record collection!

The main characters dance to Trapped by a Thing Called Love in Only Lovers Left Alive, it's lovely.
Avatar Mon. 1/15/18 11:21am The Oscar:

@PRB Thanks! I used to run auctions for a used record store, so I'm good at linking obscure records to things people have heard of :)

Thanks for the Denise LaSalle love, Joe! I’m happy you’re giving her this beautiful sendoff. She’s an all-time favorite since childhood.

My pleasure, Gaylord! I love her records so much.

With all the shows on archive I have easily sold my soul to FMU. You and the station have such a wonderful selection of music. Always still a learning experience too.

Why thanks, tadpoles, that's so nice to hear.
