This song isn't new at all.

I'm guessing "Tenderoni" you mean the Chromeo song, since I've never heard of another such song, but I've never heard anyone mention that song before either.

Anyway, the next big hit is an oldie but goodie, Poe's "Hello". Because nostalgia for 1995 is just starting to build and this will be part of it.

There is a really cool song called Jessie's Girl. Its about this guy who has the hots for his friend girlfriend. His friends name is Jessie, which is why the song is called Jessie's Girl. And it has a really cool guitar riff that goes DEENER-NEENER-NEET-NEET-NEEENER-NEET-NEET!

Its a really cool song.

4: The song makes more sense if you assume that he doesn't have the hots for Jessie's girl, but that he's jealous of her.

This is ridiculously catchy and more people should know about it. (And the group that does it is the source of my most unexpected phrase of the year: "independent hip hop team from Provo, UT".)

Nope, never heard that Bobby Brown song before.

This is one I've been trying to show all my friends. It's an important reminder that the titular spacecraft made several successful missions before that little glitch in early 1986. If you were an Italo-disco producer in mid-1984 and you were putting together a happy song about a spacecraft, that's the one you would pick. Plus the choreography and the track suits.

The ones that were sticking in my head today, were:

James Carr -

Clarence Carter -

But neither are hardly new. Fractionally newer:

Emily "IRocktheBelles" Lawson does her thing.

Sounds like the radio in 1997 but in my head...and with decent sound quality, come to think of it. That was a real "audio surprise" moment - this stuff sounds different without the multipath over the hills fuzzing all over the place.

oh yeah, some near-rickroll moments in there.

Also, as a general recommendation, Gemma Ray. If you like 50s-ish pop/prog.

Oh, hey, I actually am listening to something contemporary:

Bobby Womack, "The Bravest Man In The Universe"

(produced, I think, by the same person who did Gil-Scott Heron's very good penultimate album I'm New Here)

when Jesse's Girl came out, i didn't know Jesse could be a man's name. it was a very confusing song for me.

I always knew "Jesse" was a man's name, so the confusing thing was why the song was called "Jessie's Girl".

The 1980s were special, because there were not one, but two famous Uncle Jessies on television.

1. Purity Ring - Lofticries
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VgKk8Eqyzkk

I thought Purity Ring was the song and Lofticries was the singer, but now I think vice verse.

2 The Chain Gang of 1974 - The Devil Is A Lady
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=olTdBymCmBo

in a 'people who liked 'Gang Of Four - Man In Uniform ' also like sense.
