May 9, 1981 Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers "The Waiting"
I file Tom Petty alongside Ric Ocasek and Billy Corgan in the 'How did we ever all agree that these people can sing?' folder. But hey, it is what it is. I've learned to look past his nasally, Dylan-esque southern drawl and just enjoy his songs anyway.
The waiting is the hardest part. Every day you see one more card.
This lil ditty about a girl not giving up the goods too soon is worth a spin once in a while, I reckon.
Hey, the first couple of stone cold classics! "Burnin' For You" still rules, as most BOC still rules nowadays. "Start Me Up" isn't among my favorite Stones songs, but it definitely has its place in music history.
Not sure if Doc would be a big fan of you disliking a Foreigner song, but I'm a fan of the review all the same.
One day the company owner busts into my office. "Look up everything about this girl: Amanda Love. I went to school with her and now she's gonna be in a dirty magazine."
Xtreme: Can you talk a little bit about your appearance on the Howard Stern show, and your upcoming layout in the Magazine "Leg Show"?
Amanda: It was very interesting, and a learning experience. I got to meet Snoop Doggy Dog. Him and his friends kept lighting up joint after joint in the green room. They were getting so high! I will be appearing as the Centerfold in the September 2000 issue of Leg Show.
And all I could think was, "There's his homeroom angel on the pages in between..."
'they won the Canadian music industry Juno Award for Group of the Year in 1981'
'noteworthy for launching the careers of several former group members, including international record producer Bruce Fairbairn, songwriter Jim Vallance, Powder Blues Band frontman Tom Lavin, and Chilliwack musician Ab Bryant'
'five Hot 100 hits between the years 1977-1981'
'a pre-fame Bryan Adams also contributed as a songwriter to several early Prism releases including their biggest US hit Don't Let Him Know.'
Their first song to make the top ten on the Hot 100. They'll only have one more song do this, but it will be hard to call that one a 'rock' song, since it will hit #1 on the AC chart between a Cher/Peter Cetera sleeper and a Natalie Cole sleeper.
"Caught Up In You" rehashes that tired ol' theme of "I'm back for good this time, really for real, no more foolin' 'round cuz those other girls aren't as good as you (aka they all dumped me and won't put up with my crapola)."
But it's catchy enough to enjoy once in a while on a southern rock playlist or SXM's Classic Rewind.
It was the summer of 1990. My first serious girlfriend and I had spent the night talking. We talked so long the sun came up. The conversation ended with us telling each other "I love you." It was the first time I'd said it to a girl. I got into my car and started it up. And there was Eddie, blasting out of my radio...
