Addicted To Vinyl Musical thoughts from the open road, with headphones on


I’m a naughty naughty guy….

I'm having one of those periodic moments in life where I get a song in my head that I've heard a billion times, and I can't think of what it is.

Tonight's entry features the following lyric:

I've got my radio on..... (big stacked background vocals - raaaadio oooooon)

It's a male singer - song is from the 80s and was a huge hit. Slight chance that it might be from the 90s...but I'm pretty sure it was the 80s. And I'm pretty sure it's on my Ipod. Only 14,151 songs until I find out which one it is. Dammit.

Several of my Facebook friends suggested "Roadrunner" as made famous by Joan Jett, Jonathan Richman, and um.....the Sex Pistols version. Good thought, but that's not it.

The voice in my head kind of reminds me of John Parr...but it's not John Parr. And I'm not even thinking of "St. Elmo's Fire," I'm thinking more along the lines of the John Parr song that everyone really should know - "Naughty Naughty."

"Naughty Naughty" was one of the many songs that I heard for the first time on my beloved favorite radio station growing up in Odessa, TX: KWES-FM, "The Hot 102 FM."

I went hunting for the audio on Youtube and was shocked to find that there is a video for "Naughty Naughty!"

"Naughty, Naughty" was one of those songs that I wanted for years on CD. I finally got a copy in the early 90s on the 18 Screamers From The 80s compilation. I finally had my tune, but the problem was that the audio started sounding crummy midway through the song. I read later that allegedly there might be a problem with the master recording of the song, because all of the circulating CD versions sounded that way.

Not sure if that is the case or not, but I eventually got a good copy of the song from somewhere...perhaps even a 45 dub - I dunno, it's one of those 14,151 songs on the Ipod, and after a while, you start to lose track....

Side note - I forgot how misleading that 18 Screamers compilation was. From the title, you expect a certain kind of thing, and instead get "Don't Let Him Go" by REO Speedwagon. Not that that's a bad thing, but the title was a tad off, I think...

So where was I? Where am I? Still trying to figure out that dang song.....leave a comment if you can help!

    The first thing that came to my mind was “Love Letter” by Bonnie Raitt, from “Nick of Time”…

    …writing you a love letter,

    maybe deacon blue?

    That’s it – I’m retarded….so much for it being a male singer!

    I’ve been listening to Bonnie’s Road Tested live disc (a favorite) all week. I knew I had heard the song recently….and indeed I had.

    I knew it was something I had heard a bazillion times….but in the moment, I blanked and couldn’t come up with it!

    Thanks man!!
