Good morning from Huntington Beach, California everyone! You know when a song is “played out” and you just don’t want to hear it again over & over & over. I was thinking this morning that – yes, that would be the case but only if it’s a song that probably doesn’t have sentimental value to a person.
For instance, let me point out that even though I have probably listened to Rio by Duran Duran more times that I can probably count since the first time I saw the video back in the early 80’s – I will never tire of the song. In fact, I probably listen to it and/or watch the video at least once a day every day. Which will continue till the end of my life. I love that song so much and what it means to me, that I even got a tattoo of the album cover on my right shoulder. And, the album cover happens to be a piece of Art from one of my favourite artists; the late Patrick Nagel.
So as I was thinking about my brother Tony’s wedding that I had the honour of being the Best Man at last September. You can see some of his wedding & how much fun it was on my good friends; Jeff & Dana Sipper’s Website (aka: NOT McTographers. LOL!). With all the music that was played at his wedding, one of the songs that was gaining a lot of momentum on the charts was I Got A Feeling by the Black Eyed Peas. Now it’s heard at 99.9% of the receptions, parties, and more. I’ve seen people cringe when they hear it (kinda like Celebration by Kool & The Gang – an industry staple song) but I have to tell you that the connection that I have with the song is much deeper as it was one of my brother’s and his wife; Annie’s favourite songs at their reception.
So there ya have it! I’m sure you’ve guessed that this week’s West Coast Wednesday Video Of The Week is going to be Rio by Duran Duran. LOL! Not. It’s going to be I Got A Feeling by the Black Eyed Peas.
