I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar, Human League and a double header of: Vacation, all I ever wanted, vacation, have to get away, The Go Go's.

There is a website called Brain Worms, its a site where people tell of the songs echoing in there heads.

I think Jay and I have discussed the Freedom Rock commercial in PM or IM or something...

Currently listening to actual music, which helps prevent the sticking of one song.

Freedom Rock is one of my favorites to bust on, however anything by K-Tel records is fair game as well.

Speaking of MTV, I offer to you, for your viewing pleasure, the first video aired by MTV when they first went on the air...

Probably the first video aired my MTV, VH1 used to be classic MTV, when MTV moved to nothing but teen gameshows. Talking about classic music commercials, what about The Classic Masters with the old guy with a white beard and he had the tag line: "That was the Polivetzian Dance by Borridick" They pushed that album from the late 70's to the late 90's.

But who could forget Classic Heavy Ballads, metal was all over when they all had to have a ballad in their resume, or the Unplugged movement, every classic rock song done on an acoustic guitar.

I have to say, I really liked some of the Unplugged albums. Eric Clapton's, of course, is a classic that will never wear out (actually, I think I scratched/lost that CD 3 times before I had CD burners and MP3s). Alice In Chains was really great on Unplugged. Nirvana and Stone Temple Pilots both did a decent job. Page and Plant's "Unledded"/"No Quarter", which they insisted was not to be part of the series (but more or less was anyway), was great.

I think Unplugged also helped make it more popular for mostly-electric artists to do some acoustic stuff (ballads or otherwise). I really enjoy the result when they do that. It seems that the skill required to make heavy distortion and screaming into good music often translates well into acoustic work.
