Classic Rock Bottom

Ever had this conversation...

Friend:  Hey, remember that one song that goes, da da dadadada dada da?
You:  Uh no, do you know who did it?
Friend:  No, but you know it, remember it has the one dude singing on it?
You:  hmmm... when did the song come out?
Friend:  In High School man, we played it all the time, come on, you gotta remember it?
You:  uh...

You, being the music person in your group got this question a lot. And you were expected to know the answer from a tone deaf musical imp who just gave you the best monotone clue you ever heard. 

So we here at Scott Hidden Treasures are going to help you out today.  Were going to give 10 answers to these conversations.

We'll start by asking the question and then give you the answer...

Greg Kihn! AWESOME!

I wish someone would release his albums on CD. I want RockKihnRoll badly.
....Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh.....

That's a cool song. All of these were cool. This is your first SHT offering that I have been familiar with each song. How 'bout dat?

This is my "sounds like this song should have been done by" section...

The Chilliwack song sounds like it should have been done by Hall & Oates. The lead singer sounds a lot like Hall in several places.

Also, Sausalito Summer Night is a song I always though should have been an Eagles song. It would fit them so well.

For Billy Idol, I just hate his snarl, and I could tell he was doing it even when recording the vocals to this song. I wonder if he does it when he talks to his mom? Anyway, I'm not a huge Idol fan, but this song along with the one Niels had on VOTW last week are pretty cool. My favorite would be a three way tie between Dancing With Myself and Flesh For Fantasy and Eyes Without A Face.

Anyway, very good playlist that brought back some memories.
Awesome, 10 for 10. Thats not suppose to happen ... hahahahahaha...

I was in my office earlier in the week, and my wife walks in and she says.. Whats that one song that goes lalalalalalalala? (She does this all the time) and so I got this idea. When I read back through it it kinda sounded silly, but it resonated with me because I got these questions all the time. - Hey! play that one tune we listened to a couple weeks ago? - hahahaha, made me remember and made me laugh.

Hey, that's amazing. A few months back I was riding down the road with my wife, and she says "that song you like came on the radio yesterday and it made me think of you". So of course I wanted to know which song it was. She didn't know, and couldn't even give me the tune, but she said something about a humming part or something. I had no clue what song she was referring to. So a couple of weeks go by and we're in the truck together, and Greg Kihn's The Breakup Song came on. She said "that's it!!!". So we finally figured out that what she meant by humming was "uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh".

I love the fact that she hears a song that she knows I love and she thinks of me.
Yeah, Greg Kihn! I think it was RJhog, who had a GK-track on a play-list recently, and I had never heard the number and liked it. I was looking forward to listen to THIS Greg Kihn-track, and was surprised to find out, that I KNEW the number!! And I like it!! I have to check out Greg Kihn-Band.
The only two I know by him are The Break Up Song and Our Loves In Jeopardy (which may just be titled Jeopardy, I can't remember). But it was probably Scott that put him on a playlist.
There's a few you should know. I'm positive I had one of his songs as an MSoTW a little while ago. Getting his albums is very expensive but I do have a double disc greatest hits I got years ago and it's now OOP and expensive as well.
