I talk about music a lot on this page. Not only is it soothing for me, but it often serves as inspiration.
Last week, it went something like this:
Trainer: I’m going to see group XYZ up in Michigan tomorrow night.
Me: That’s awesome. Should be a great show. I’m going to see Rick Springfield next week in Detroit.
Trainer. Yes! Bruce!
Me: ::Eye roll:: Not Springsteen, Springfield.
Trainer: ::blank stare::
Me: ::Soul dies a little:: Jessie’s Girl.
Trainer: Oh that’s cool. Not as cool as Bruce, but you know…
It’s not the first time I’ve been criticized for clinging to 80′s pop music. What can I say, some things really were better then. And while the long list of top 40 hits, is definitely part of what I love about the RS experience, it’s often what I find when I dig a little deeper on the albums that touches my soul.
Here today, I’m sharing a video of a lesser known Springfield song, and will do the same at my facebook page for the rest of the week. These are the songs that go a little deeper. Touch emotions that some of the hits may not do.
It’s the deeper side of pop music.
