Flashback to the 90’s

t says:  Back in ’89, The Cure released “Lovesong”.  I only know the date because I googled it.  Go ahead – youtube or itunes it so you know what song I’m talking about (or click here).  I’m pretty sure everyone [my age] has heard it at one time or another.  While I distinctly recall it being played in the 90’s, those hairstyles from the video are classic 80’s.  Please note that this is not to be confused with the more recent “Love Song” … which I doubt will survive in my memory for 20 years like The Cure’s song.

Well, Adele’s album 21, released some 10 months ago, has a re-worked version of the Cure original.  She sang it on Letterman, too.  After listening to it multiple times – I have to admit that it’s growing on me – there’s just something about that element of haunting sadness.  And while I realize that the song is “old news” as far as the rest of the world is concerned, I just wanted to share my appreciation for the reemergence of a song from my “youth”.

And while we’re bringing back some music from the past, check this out, too.  It’s not as classy as Adele, but what it lacks in class, it makes up for in humor.

a says:  little late on lovesong man … everyone knows she was giving props to the Cure, a wonderful 80s band.
