I don't know from where my gym gets its music, but yesterday I got to work out to Madonna's "Borderline" and "Like a Virgin," and also Eric Carmen's "Hungry Eyes."

I've always thought the refrain from "Hungry Eyes" was really "catchy." I always liked it. I will admit that I forgot it was from Dirty Dancing, which I haven't seen in years, and I can't say whether I ever knew it was written and sung by Eric Carmen. I had to look that up.

With 'What About Us,' It's Time To Recognize Pink As the Juggernaut She Is

8/14/2017 by Patrick Crowley

Out of the Y2K class of popstars, who had their bets on P!nk to have one of the most sustainable careers? And yet, here she is. Seventeen years after her debut, her new single “What About Us” holds steady at the top of the U.S. iTunes songs chart, four days after its release Thursday, Aug. 10. In fact, the song soars onto Billboard's Adult Pop Songs radio airplay chart at No. 18, marking the highest debut of P!nk's 22 career entries on the list. It's the highest debut by any song on the chart since Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" blasted in at a record No. 9 on Sept. 6, 2014. "What About Us" also arrives on Pop Songs at No. 34. (Both latest charts cover airplay in the Aug. 7-13 tracking period, according to Nielsen Music.)

So what is it about the big-voiced vixen that’s allowed her to carve out such an impressive career? With “What About Us,” the answer is obvious: it’s her raw authenticity.

With P!nk’s wild career trajectory, she hardly gets the respect she deserves. It’s possible that her late bloomer status, or her ability to dodge sensational tabloid headlines, has affected to the way she’s measured against her peers. But with a collection of 15 top ten Hot 100 hits as a lead artist -- more than any of her aforementioned peers (Beyoncé has 16 when featured acts are factored in) -- how is it possible that P!nk is still flying under the radar?

Forget Katy Perry or Gaga, Kesha is 2017's real pop queen

KATE SOLOMON

The music that filled the charts in the late-Noughties was of questionable quality. Throwaway dance floor-fillers littered the Top 10 and leading the charge was brash pop star Kesha, most famous for looking like she needed a shower and a good nap. Her grammatically dubious hits – Tik Tok, We R Who We R – became anthems for little more than the party lifestyle. But after a traumatic five years, the Californian singer is on the cusp of a resurgence. In a year when some of the decade’s biggest female pop stars have gone back to the musical drawing board, Kesha could become the most successful of them all.

Changing direction is a risk for pop stars – and you can double that risk if you happen to be a pop star who is also a woman in a world where men still dominate the charts. So it’s no small feat for Katy Perry to have discovered politics and minimalist R'n'B; for Lady Gaga to have gone soft-rock or Britney Spears to release an album that was actually good.

When Kesha – newly free-ish of the legal hamstrings that had kept her from working – released her first single in five years, it was a shocking departure. The strikingly raw Praying is unlike anything she had released before. There is no autotune, no brushing her teeth with bourbon, no partying of any kind here. Instead, she has deftly reinvented who she is as a pop star (great voice, big emotions, huge range, super-human strength) while addressing the controversies surrounding her absence and rising magnificently above them.

Totally addicted to "Wish That You Were Here" by Florence + the Machine!

Now that you know i still suffer from BBM-fever you may guess who i'm thinking of when listening to this...
And i think those lyrics i bolded are the most beautiful i heard so far (in my short little life).


******************************************
I've tried to leave it all behind me
But I woke up and there they were beside me
And I don't believe it but I guess it's true
Some feelings, they can travel too
Oh there it is again, sitting on my chest
Makes it hard to catch my breath
I scramble for the light to change

You're always on my mind
You're always on my mind

And I never minded being on my own
Then something broke in me and I wanted to go home
To be where you are
But even closer to you, you seem so very far
And now I'm reaching out with every note I sing
And I hope it gets to you on some pacific wind
Wraps itself around you and whispers in your ear
Tells you that I miss you and I wish that you were here


And if I stay home, I don't know
There'll be so much that I'll have to let go
You're disappearing all the time
But I still see you in the light
For you, the shadows fight
And it's beautiful but there's that tug in the sight
I must stop time traveling, you're always on my mind

You're always on my mind
You're always on my mind

And I never minded being on my own
Then something broke in me and I wanted to go home
To be where you are
But even closer to you, you seem so very far
And now I'm reaching out with every note I sing
And I hope it gets to you on some pacific wind
Wraps itself around you and whispers in your ear
Tells you that I miss you and I wish that you were here

We all need something watching over us
Be it the falcons, the clouds or the crows
And then the sea swept in and left us all speechless
Speechless

And I never minded being on my own
Then something broke in me and I wanted to go home
To be where you are
But even closer to you, you seem so very far
And now I'm reaching out with every note I sing
And I hope it gets to you on some pacific wind
Wraps itself around you and whispers in your ear
Tells you that I miss you and I wish that you were here

Wish that you were here
Wish that you were here
Wish that you were here
I wish that you

I heard this today while listening to 40's music and thought of Ingy.

What  I'm listening to, which matches the weather here.

Sound quality not the best, but that's what happens sometimes in live performances at clubs.

Walter Becker, Steely Dan Co-Founder, Dead at 67

By Daniel Kreps






Walter Becker, guitarist, bassist and co-founder of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-inducted band Steely Dan, died Sunday at the age of 67.

Becker's official site announced the death; no cause of death or other details were provided.

"Walter Becker was my friend, my writing partner and my bandmate since we met as students at Bard College in 1967," Donald Fagen wrote in a tribute to Becker. "He was smart as a whip, an excellent guitarist and a great songwriter. He was cynical about human nature, including his own, and hysterically funny."

Becker missed Steely Dan's Classic East and West concerts in July as he recovered from an unspecified ailment. "Walter's recovering from a procedure and hopefully he'll be fine very soon," Fagen told Billboard at the time. Becker's doctor advised the guitarist not to leave his Maui home for the performances.

Becker and Fagen first became collaborators when they were both students at New York's Bard College. After working as songwriters (Barbra Streisand's "I Mean to Shine") and members of Jay and the Americans' backing band, the duo moved to California in the early Seventies to form Steely Dan – named after a sex toy in William S. Burroughs' Naked Lunch – alongside guitarists Jeff "Skunk" Baxter and Denny Dias, drummer Jim Hodder and singer David Palmer.

In their time together,  Steely Dan put 10 singles into the Billboard Top 40 chart.

"Rikki Don't Lose That Number"  #4

"Do It Again" #6

"Hey Nineteen" #10
 
"Reeling in the Years" #11

"Peg" #11

"Deacon Blues" #19

"Time Out of Mind" #22

"FM (No Static at All)" #22

"Josie" #26

"Black Friday" #37
