Wednesday Night Music Byte

Before getting to tonight’s music byte, we would like to congratulate the Boston Bruins again. Tonight they won game 3 of their series against the Philadelphia Flyers and now hold a commanding three games to zero lead heading into Friday night’s match in Philly. Here we go Bruins, here we go!

Tommy Tutone is a power pop-rock band, best known for its 1982 hit “867-5309/Jenny”, which peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100. Although it is usually referred to as a San Francisco band, it was actually based in Willits, California, at the time that “Jenny” was released. The song became so popular that people in the United States to this day dial this telephone number and ask for Jenny as a prank. Regarding the famous number, “We had people threatening to sue us. It was the Buffalo Chief of Police’s daughter’s number in New York,” said frontman Tommy Heath. Although the band is frequently remembered as a one-hit wonder, it had another top-40 hit on the Hot 100 with “Angel Say No” in 1980, predating “Jenny” by a couple of years.

A common misconception is that Tommy Tutone is the name of the lead singer; it is actually the name of the band. Tommy Heath is the lead singer. The name of the band developed from its original name, Tommy and the Tu-tones, to merely Tommy Tutone.

On a personal note, the song “Jenny” brings back many memories of college fraternity parties for good ol’ Lynnrockets. Please enjoy Tommy Tutone performing the song live in this video clip.

I’m Having Spam, Bacon, Spam, Eggs, Spam And Spam

When you write a blog you hope to elicit insightful comments from your readers so as to stir up debate on a given topic. Unfortunately you also attract many spammers that post comments in an attempt to lure readers to their websites to purchase such things as performance enhancing drugs and credit monitoring services etc. Most of these spam comments range from vague to completely inane. Today we thought it might be fun to post a few spam comments for all to see.

That is certainly the way to go…

SARAH MAY

(sung to Rod Stewart’s song “Maggie May”)

Wake up Sarah I think we’ve got something to say to you
Since last September you’ve really acted like a praying fool
The First Dude’s really a joke.
Not to mention your other kinfolk.
Oh, Sarah I wish we’d never seen your face
You’ve disgraced our wonderful home
Time has come for you to be de-throned
You reflect on us and that’s what really hurts

The morning sun when its in your face really shows your age
I’m sure that worries you some, cuz in your eyes you’re everything
You’re so damn full of yourself
Without a care for anyone else
Oh, Sarah your faults can’t be covered by paper and lace
You’ve disgraced our wonderful home
Got pranked by Sar-ko-zy on the phone
And you’ve cast your lot with the likes of Ol’ Wayne Ross

What we needed was a Guv who was a role model
But you’re a backwoods “Hockey Mom” and
Mother what a bum, you’ll be thrown out
Levi Sleepin’ in Bristol’s bed
Renewed support for Old Uncle Ted
Oh, Sarah you’re bringing down the human race
You’ve disgraced our wonderful home
A lipsticked pitbull with a poisonous bone
Politics of hate are something we can live without

(Musical Interlude)

I suppose with all your fancy clothes you’ll be a game show host
Or use some common sense and have your mental state diagnosed
Or become a lobbying rat, and work for “Arctic Cat”
Oh, Sarah just leave and take along your base
You made first-class fools out of us
In school you must have rode that short bus
You stole our hearts then threw that love away!

(Musical Interlude)

Sarah, I wish we’d never seen your face
We’ll get our pride back one of these days
