Your YouChoose Song Of The Day: "Major Tom"

Did David Bowie think that his 1969 song, "Space Oddity," would turn into Peter Schilling's "Major Tom" in 1983?  We highly doubt it.  Yet, each song stands alone as one that is great.  Similar story told in two slightly different ways.  Watch the two videos below and listen.  Two great songs.  One great story.  Waiting for the screenplay.  Any takers?

Jingle Rock '80s Night Prices Shattered!!

That's right.  There's a recession.  The economy is going nowhere fast (not a political statement, just a regurgitation from our buddies in the media who "wouldn't say it if it was not true" - Joe Jackson).  So we've reduced, lowered, slashed and SHATTERED prices on our Jingle Rock '80s Night tickets (to benefit Push to Walk).  What was a $100 ticket is now $75.  SAVE $25!!!!!!!  What was a $125

Your YouChoose Song Of The Day: "Looks That Kill"

What good looking boys, huh?  Love the makeup.  Question for you: Which Motley Crue song do you like best: "Dr. Feelgood," "Kickstart My Heart," "Looks That Kill" or "Girls, Girls, Girls"?  This is important, so please hit us up here, on Facebook or Twitter so we can feel what you're feeling.  Cool?  But wait, there's more...

Your YouChoose Song Of The Day: "Still Of The Night"

The other day, your YouChoose Song of the Day was "Shake You Down" by Gregory Abbott.  That song is the complete, 100%, absolute, redundantly polar opposite of today's Song of the Day, "Still of the Night" by Whitesnake.  Today's song is edgy, powerful, and sexy in a different way from Gregory's "eeny meany miney moe" crooning.  Why are we going in another direction?  Because that's how your S

Your YouChoose Song Of The Day: "Shake You Down"

We know this song from 1986, but does anybody really know anything about Gregory Abbott?  Let's see what Wikipedia wants to tell us: "In 1986, Abbott released his first solo album, Shake You Down.

Your YouChoose Song Of The Day: "Your Love"

Who here knew the keyboard player for The Outfield was blind?  Who knew the lead singer had a bad overbite?  Who knew that, if the song was just about good enough, there didn't really need to be a plot to a music video, even if the director tried?  Okay, we've known the answer to #3 for many years.  But numbers 1 and 2?  Yeah, you're learning stuff here.  And we're happy to go on this educational rampage with you.
