Weekend Mix: Enjoy Yourself
This mix started with a handful of favorite obscurities, spanning genres and decades, but some late comers formed a coalition and an insurgency and things went entirely awry in the best possible way.
I was just about finished when Sal posted about Bowie yesterday.
This made me think of "Enjoy Yourself" by One The Juggler, whose 1984 album "Nearly A Sin" owed a great deal to Hunky Ziggy. It seemed like an anachronism when it came out, but is still a lot of fun. One hook piled onto the next and then it's over, the song became the perfect opener, set the tone and became the title.
It's all about the hooks.
Here is a bunch of guitar based songs full of melodies, hooks, harmony, and hopefully, surprises.
Several bonus tracks worth having without the $40 box of redundancy.
New and old favorites hanging out and having a good time.
