The Pipkins took it all the way to #9 in the summer of 1970. The Pipkins weren't a real group..they were Roger Greenaway and Tony Burrows, who took care of lead vocals on songs for other groups around the same time: Edison Lighthouse, White Plains and The First Class.
We'll have to look...but he may have made more than one appearance on that ridiculous iPod.
It was the summer of 1979, and this song was on the radio pretty much non-stop. It got all the way to number 1, which is much better than Robert John's followup did. "Lonely Eyes" just didn't have the same ring to it.
Kiss is not usually thought of as a disco band. But that didn't stop them from cashing in on the craze. This song was co-written by guitar player Paul Stanley to show how easy it was to write a hit disco song.
It may have been one of the reasons lead guitar player Ace Frehley quit the band, but it did give them a #11 hit in 1979.
Kitty's favorite line: "I wanna give it all to you, in the darkness!"
Let's go back, way back to 1972 for this song that featured great lines like "sock it to me sock it to me" and "gotta find a woman," and tells us all about Bertha Butt, "one of the Butt Sisters." It made it up to #6 on the billboard pop charts, and #4 on the R& B charts.
This got just about the best reaction of any of the iPod songs so far. And by that we mean worst.
I'm not sure why Pete Yorn decided to name his new music project after a European cave dwelling aquatic salamander, but if he stops by to play us some songs in Studio M, we'll have to ask him.
The Olms is a collaboration between Pete Yorn and...
Today's song was written by Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary. It was inspired by the 1957 novel Doctor Zhivago. No one was inspired by the song this morning. It was rejected by almost all the listeners.
Today is World Goth Day, a day to celebrate the post-punk, anti-establishment, dark clothes-wearing subculture.
I'm pretty sure I was a Goth for at least for little while, for two reasons.
1) I almost hardly ever wear pastels.
2) I used to...
Hello to all from Nfusion. Another round of challenges has moved beyond us all. Congrats to those of us lucky enough to have survived to this point. Sad to see the others eliminated as they were all very creative and talented. Good Bye to our new friends...
This morning it seemed like just about everyone was in the mood for some Funky Cold Medina...except Kitty. This ridiculous song made it all the way to number 3 in 1989. Jonathan says any song that references advertising dogs from the 80's has got...

John Fogerty is making the talk show rounds this week, stopping in to see David Letterman Tuesday and Wednesday, and the ladies of "The View" on Thursday.

It's a miracle that both Jonathan and KItty wanted to hear Barry Manilow this morning. They were not alone. Plenty of Fanilow's called in to vote yes. One caller claimed to have seen Manilow in concert 25 times!
