Missing Debby Boone

If you were alive in 1977, then chances are you heard an awful lot of the Debby  Boone song "You Light Up My Life."  At the time, it was the longest running number 1 single in history..at a record ten weeks. Not even the Beatles could beat that. I really really hated the song. And while I should have had nothing personal against ol' Pat Boone's daughter, I admit I hated her too.   If I never heard that song again, it would be too soon. If I ran into Debby Boone at the mall, I'd hide behind my Orange Julius. Then today my pal Matt Solomon posted this video on facebook. None other than Patti Smith for some reason left her punk roots at home in the basement or dungeon or somewhere..and gave us her rendition of that hit song. I miss Debby. Somebody, please help me.

World's Worst iPod: Carl Douglas "Everybody Was Kung Fu Fighting"
It's hard to believe a novelty song like this went all the way up the charts to number one---but it did, and actually stayed there for two weeks! It seemed most everyone, excluding our meteorologist Brian Olson wanted to hear this song, which came...

Jeff the Promo Guy's Top 2014 Picks
2014 had a ton of great new album releases, and I easily came up with more than 10 to reference. I would have loved to include The Fray, Angus & Julia Stone, Bleachers, Alt-J, and George Ezra… but they just didn't make it on my Top 10 list. Here...
