#ThrowbackThursday: Semisonic - “Closing Time”

Released in 1998, Semisonic’s “Closing Time” became a pop culture hit. “Closing Time” hit top 10 status on many American and worldwide music charts.

Relating to the inner most thoughts of bar goers, serving as a reminder of change, and carrying a beat that makes the song a bop it even hits with a little logic: “every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.”

Metallica - Unforgiven II

This song takes me back to 1997... High School. This was on MTV back when they played videos.

#ThrowbackThursday: Little Richard “Tutti Frutti”

As an artist whose music transcended generations, the death of Little Richard on May 9, 2020 made many think about his notorious hit “Tutti Frutti.”

Written and released in 1955, it is amazing to think this song could get regular play on radio stations today 65 years later.

#ThrowbackThursday: Christina Aguilera - “Dirrty”

Christina Aguilera’s “Dirrty” featuring Redman was the first track released from Aguilera’s “Stripped” album in 2002. 

While only the 5th most popular song from the album chart wise it is remembered as the song that blew the doors off Aguilera’s persona as a teen pop princess, showing the multiple sides to Aguilera’s personality.
