Before there were The Beatles we had a whole lot of bubble gum music including Brian Hyland. He recorded this song was he was just 16 and it made it all the way to number 1 not only in America, but it climbed to the top ten in 8 other countries. Hyland is still around today, but is more into country music.

We were back in the late 70's today for the World's Worst iPod. Jonathan felt like this song fits in a bad commercial, but Kitty loved it. The band was called Night and they managed to get to number 18 with this song. However, they didn't make it on the radio this morning.
Guess what Beatle people! You get to buy the movie Help! again!
The 1965 movie has just been released on Blu-ray. Even if you're not a huge fan of this James Bond-ish comedy starring our fab four moptops, it might be worth getting just to hear the songs in 5.1 audio (that is if you have a home theatre with surround sound.) Sadly, there are no extras included with this version.
I'm not sure I've ever made it to the end of this movie. It's over two hours long and it meanders. It's definitely NOT up to par with their earlier movie Hard Day's Night.
Here's a fun little time waster for you...a fun little"Find the Beatle Contest." I think you might be able to win a copy of the Blu-ray, but I'm not sure.
And if you watch this movie trailer, it will almost be like watching it in hi-def, except smaller and blurrier.
This song may have only made it to number 25 on the charts back in 1981, but it was number 1 in Kitty's heart as well as a lot of Triple M listeners. Who knew a Dutch band was so well versed on evening activities in California.
Despite the fact Kitty owns this movie on DVD, she didn't want to hear it. Jonathan was in the musical version back in high school, so he was ready to sing along. However, the majority of listeners this morning said NO. Back in 1978, the song did make it to number 5.
In 2009, Cage the Elephant released their self-titled debut album. With songs like "Ain't No Rest for the Wicked," Cage the Elephant received ample acclaim from critics and listeners alike. Here is another cut off the album, titled "Tiny Little Robots" for a free download.

In Their Words: "A really big mind-opening discovery period was when we left and moved to England. We had everything at our fingertips because in a small town like Bowling Green, we were just trying to make a record that was pure. For us that was Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, and all that. When we moved over to England we started to discover The Pixies, Butthole Surfers, and Black Flag. It’s been a really cool journey." - Singer Matt Shultz
This week’s Gabby’s Pick is Daft Punk’s “ Get Lucky”.
If you’re not familiar with them, Daft Punk is a French duo who made their initial impact in the late 90’s “ house movement” in France.
They toured throughout 2006 and 2007 and released the live album Alive 2007, which won a Grammy Award for Best Electronic/Dance Album. The duo composed the score of the film Tron: Legacy and in 2010 released the soundtrack album of the film. In January 2013, Daft Punk released their latest album Random Access Memories on 17 May 2013.
Bryan Adams made it to number 5 on the charts with this song in the summer of '85. Kitty doesn't like the song because Bryan Adams was only a 9-year-old in 1969 so he probably wouldn't buy a guitar at that age. Sadly, Adams was not talking about the year 1969. Check out this interview...
