Music Monday: So Super Random

 Welcome to this edition of Music Monday as it will be so very random, it may have seemed like I put a bunch of songs on a dart board and threw darts and whatever it hit I decided to choose. Not really. I have been listening to this channel on XM in the car called 1st Wave and that is where these first songs come from:

And an oldie that has been redone by the original group (Sorry, I am a huge Go's-Go's fan, have been and always will):

Finally, this is a song that has really hit home with me. I played it for my students (inner-city middle schoolers) and they didn't hate it:

I know it seems like a super random mix but it is what I have been listening to lately. Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday. 


  1. Great mewsic over here, you sure got us on the dancefloor. We loved Depeche Mode and Crowded House and those ladies, that we saw for the first time today, are really some hit😺Pawksses for a Swinging Monday🐾😽💞

  2. ...with this playlist I have a lot of catching up to do! Thanks for the intros.

  3. Hey Patrick,

    Don't worry about the random style tunes you share on your song choice week. That's part of the fun, you don't have to have a theme or even one that doesn't seem like you do. Listening to XM rotation is kinda like Mary's YT Roulette. :) The Go-Gos were awesome in the day and still know how to rock it. Bon Jovi and Jennifer Nettle seem like an unlikely match up but I've come across some interesting mixed duets over the years. They actually do quite well together, don't they? Thanks for joining the 4M crew on the dance floor. Stay safe, be well, and have a boogietastic week, my friend!

  4. I really liked your setlist today! Excellent job! Thanks for playing along :)

  5. Oh my gosh, The GoGo's still look & sound awesome! Nothing to be shamed of here my friend cuz they surely ROCK THE HOUSE! WOO HOO! I must say Bon Jovi & Jennifer Nettle really got a hit there don't you think? I do. They make a good team singin' they did another together too that was really good. Although I really like her she's got a wonderful voice and is just so darn cute! Your tunes have rocked the house this week my friend! Great job! Thanks for playin' along with us! hugs

  6. I am a big First Wave fan when I can wrest the radio away from the other occupant of my house (hard rock fan). All those '80 songs you featured are favs but the Bon Jovi/Jennifer Nettles song (I have heard it before) makes me so...I don't know what, with its pictures of the NYC lockdown. As you may be aware, some parts of NYC are shutting down again (what we now are calling "red zones") and I know several people living in the affected areas of Brooklyn. But we do have the beat and we will get through this (and I salute your work as a teacher).


Love hearing comments on stuff. Please tell me what you think of the places I have been to. If you like them or not. I love comments.
