Spinning vinyl: 38 Special – Tour De Force

This "being social in the real world" thing really cramps my blogging style!

After my dinner last night with blogger/Clevo/Nashville buddy Kevin Mason, I was re-inspired and researching a future webcam purchase today. During lunch, I went to Best Buy to see a couple of the options in the flesh. I think I found (thanks to Kevin's help,) the model that I want to get, and I'll likely purchase it at some point soon.

Tonight after work, I met up with fellow vinyl lover Beth, a Twitter friend o' mine, to hand off a stack of vinyl, and talk some tunes. After that, it was back to the west side for dinner at Buckeye Beer Engine.

Tomorrow night: New Year's Eve with my buddy Kevin (we'll call him the original Kevin) at the Beachland Ballroom for the Jason & The Scorchers reunion show. Can't wait!

For now, I'm at home listening to a recently acquired copy of the 38 Special album Tour De Force. I've always been a fan of 38, and the album opening "If I'd Been The One" was a favorite song of mine as a kid. I remember seeing the video on Friday Night Videos, and it still registers as one of the early videos from back in the day that was cool. I guess if you add flames, it makes anything a lot more interesting!

I'm surprised that the video isn't on Youtube, but the video for "Back Where You Belong," also on Tour De Force, is equally entertaining!

38 Special - Back Where You Belong

    Wow… that song brings back some SERIOUS memories. In Columbus, when I was married to my first husband, “Where You Belong” was in heavy rotation on QFM. I can still hear in my head the way Pat and Wags would always call them

    Wags: 38
    Both: SpAYshul!

    I think my favorite bit of the music is the plea (I think) after the bridge – “where you belong…”

    But man, that video was terrible. On just about every level. Acting. Plot. Action. Stunts. The girl was cute, though.

    Ann – I’m trying to get a hold of the 38 video from some friends of mine. The girl was cute in THAT video too!

    I love radio memories like the above. Good corny fun.

    Of course the video is terrible…..I don’t think I had ever seen it, so I had to include it here!

    It’s like an elaborate Tom Petty video storyline….only it’s not good like those Tom Petty videos!!

    I received 1 st mortgage loans when I was 25 and that helped my business a lot. Nevertheless, I need the sba loan over again.
