    Did you know? Andrew Gold sang the theme song for Mad About You.

    Hey slagonia. Thanks for the note. You can post that info here, or email us at feedback@songfacts.com. Appreciate any corrections.

    That kind of tuxedo is more suited for a grand piano. Somehow it's not the right accessory for that keyboard. Here's the original version of "Shadows of the Night" by a singer who under different circumstances, could have been a star.

    Was wondering when Blondie would hear all these retro disco hits and say, "Hey, we can do that!"

    Kids react to...old stuff!

    Vinyl made a comeback, so maybe some of this stuff will too.
  6. I thought this might be a good category, or maybe two categories. Questions: 1) What are some songs about sleep? 2) What are some songs about insomnia? 3) Should this be one category or two?

    Hey Edna. Can you see it now? This is what it looks like on my end.

    Chinese Song Question

    Looks like one of the YouTube comments named it. Which might be the first time a YouTube comment was useful.

    I have a typewriter, and my daughter uses it. Good for them to make the connection between pushing a key and having something appear on paper. Someday, we'll be explaining cars that you have to actually drive.
  12. We're still active Thomas, just not as active as we were in 2006. Happy to have you here.
  13. Putting together Roger's interview with Darlene Love, where she talks about how being a backup singer can be a good career move, even today. That got me thinking about some of the singers who made the leap from singing backup to becoming superstars. The biggest names I can think of are: Mariah Carey, who was a backup singer for Brenda K. Starr. Sheryl Crow, who sang backup for Michael Jackson. Who are some others?
  14. In March 2016, Alanis Morissette realized there was something a little off with her accounting. She fired her business manager and discovered that he stole about $4.8 million from her since 2009, using the money to pay for vacations and gambling debts. A good reminder that if a financial professional tells you you're "fine," check the books. Here's the lawsuit, which also names her manager's company, a firm that probably deals with lots of big names: http://documents.latimes.com/alanis-morissette-v-gso-business-management-jonathan-schwartz/ A few days ago, a settlement was reached with the manager admitting he stole not just the Morissette money, but about $2 million from other clients as well. Proof that financial firms don't keep tabs on their employees, even when they're in charge of millions. It appears that Alanis got her money back. I'm just disappointed that in none of the articles did it mention how the manager had one hand in her pocket.

    Never knew skulduggery was a real word. Gotta start using it.

    U2 Launching The Joshua Tree Tour 2017

    There have been a lot of these entire album tours lately, but I don't think you'll ever again see a group with all original members doing a 30-year-old album.

    Corrupt a Wish

    Granted (we're working on it). That guy who was here a lot in 2006 can post all the reasons you're wrong about pretty much everything. I wish I was taller.
  20. Sweet. We all know someone who is now working as an actuary or some other upstanding corporate profession who every now and then mentions his old band. This is that band.

    Happy New Year 2017...

    Good call Ron. Got this in the (e)mail today, which I thought was somehow appropriate for the New Year.

    Twilight Zone: "Two"

    It's not quite the same, but after you've had your Twilight Zone fix, check out Black Mirror on Netflix. Or just read the news. It's just as surreal.
