22 - Only Death Is Fatal - Garbo's Celluloid Heroes - 1978   (2:37)

23 - Tell That Girl to Shut Up - Holly and the Italians - 1979   (3:01)

24 - Rock and Roll Birthday - The Beatles - VM - 2009   (2:50)



            Our first track is frankly nostalgic, a fun and cheesy hark-back to some of the biggest music legends (regardless of musical quality).

            Track 8 is one in a long line of phone-call songs.

            Track 9, of course, could be the theme song of many.

            Track 10 was recorded for an album tied into the 1990 Dick Tracy film.  Not only fun, it sounds awfully close to the bone when you consider the artist.

            Track 17 could be a teen anthem for half the western world.

            And the final track is another stupendously fall-down-great cut from VM of the Beatles Remixers group.  Ka-WHAM!  Talk about going out with a bang!  Happy New Year!






... Happy New Year! We're taking the month of January off.  See you back here on Monday, February 5th, 2018!
