A Musical Journey – 1987

1987 – Still in Hollywood – Concrete Blonde

Back in 1987, I wasn’t too keen on what the top 40 was giving us, hideous records like Rick Astley’s Never Going to Give You Up is  an example, so, I’m choosing a song that only some of you may know…

Still in Hollywood, the first track I ever heard from Concrete Blonde from their debut album by the same name. Lead by cool rock chick Johnette Napolitano,  who was not only the lead singer but main songwriter and bassist in the band.

I won’t spend time talking about the song. Sometimes, music speaks louder than words ever could, at least to me…

  1. My flatmate used to play Concrete Blonde all the time. I miss that.

  2. New to me, Alannah…I was still in the North listening to Classical or homespun!

    Hope you have some cool plans for New Year’s celebrations.

  3. I’ve never heard this song, Alannah, and it is much better than the one you mention in your first paragraph…! Thank you for introducing me to it! :)

    • Oh yeah, that hideous Rick Astley tune is sadly forever imprinted in my mind for it was one of those songs you could not get away from back in 1987. Fortunately, I had cool songs like “Still in Hollywood” to help me forget :-)

  4. You too Nancy. I’m enjoying every minute of it :-D
