So, today is September 11 and we all know what happened on that day. No need to discuss further.
Instead, we are going to focus on hot and sexy soccer girls and figure out if you can spot the hidden theme.
To make it more interesting, I challenge everyone to identify the individual clubs represented. Let’s see how many can do that…
I’ll also be continuing to showcase awesome songs like before. Today, I’m presenting to you awesome obscure songs from an 80s artist you may recognize.
As for last night’s game, I did fairly well on the Fantasy Football front as the new KC RB is on one of my teams as well as Mr. Wank Motion. On another team, Will Fuller V did very well for me as did the losing QB.
Of course, this promising start will get destroyed over the course of the weekend.
Let’s get right to it. Enjoy:
And now, the next episode of our new feature!
As I mentioned before, I’ve decided that I must take up the mantle that tWBS ran with and help to make this world a better place. I will do this in the one way he couldn’t: By introducing you to good music!
My aim each week has been to showcase a tune or band from the 80s (the best decade EVAR!) that not many people know about or have heard of. In this way, hopefully these artists will find new audiences and the old audiences can reminisce about what they were doing in the 80s.
Tonight, we are looking at songs that you may have not heard of from a band you probably heard of. Tonight’s band was most famous for their hit, “Hold Me Now”. I speak, of course, of the Thompson Twins
However, that band had A LOT of other great songs besides that one. It all started with “In The Name Of Love” with that great drum beat and danceable rhythms:
In fact, the Thompson Twins had more success on the US Dance chart than on the regular chart. Another example of that was the song “Lies”:
Probably my favourite Thompson Twins song is “Love On Your Side”:
and, of course, this song from my favourite John Hughes movie:
The Thompson Twins got pretty famous with Doctor Doctor, which I’m sure you’ve heard, but that same album also had a great song called “The Gap”
At the same time, they released the single version of “Lay Your Hands On Me”:
At this point, their songs were more melodic and less dance-y. A good example is “King For A Day”:
Their final big hit was a remix of “In The Name Of Love”:
So many good songs out of what many consider to be a One-Hit or maybe Two-Hit wonder.
That’s all for this week, folks! Be good to each other and try to stay the fuck away from stupid people. That’s not COVID-19 advice, that’s just general good sense. See you next week!
