    Ok, today we go into the absurd for old music. Or at least a true period piece of an early 80's music video. Texting with a friend about something completely unrelated he said "Or you may end up in 9 pound town." I asked "9 pound town? Is that like Funky Town???" And then looked up this gem of disco nostalgia... My friend is about seven years younger than me, so a kindergartner/first grader when this came out, and had never heard it before. At 13 I hadn't started going to dance clubs yet but my guess is that I first heard it at school. Every friday afternoon our sixth grade teacher would take us to the lunchroom for an hour long dance party and all the black girls in my class would bring in their favorite records. This video may replace High Energy as my new workday afternoon dance party break song.

    Yeah, that would be a decent workout - IF I could learn all the moves. LOL

    Thank you for that! A classic! It was around even before MTV! I was not into disco that much--my era was the whole British Invasion of the 60s, but it certainly takes me back to my 20s/30s. I hated working at Union Carbide (1983-85) but we had a lunchtime employee aerobics class and songs like Funkytown really remind me of the songs that we exercised to.

    The twelfth of this month is the 100th anniversary of the the first performance of Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue". I think it has been called kaleidoscope American. I was amazed by this recent piano performance.

    Wow. wowowow. I love George Gershwin, and my favorite piece of his has always been Rhapsody in Blue. This performance was incredible. That pianist!! Spine-tingling, goose-bumping, eye-tearing beautiful stuff.

    Thanks for sharing!!

    I'm glad someone else liked it. I actually got a tear in my eye the first time I saw/listened. Not everyone likes that style of music these days.
