Subject: Songs from past decades you havent heard until recently...

Written By: Dude111 on 10/04/18 at 11:07 pm

Interesting how many songs that we were alive in the decade they were made WE DIDNT HEAR and many we still havent!!

Like DAN HARTMANS song "We are the young" - 1984 -- I dont remember that song @ all.... I remember I CAN DREAM ABOUT YOU which i dont think is as good as the first song on that album!!

A couple weeks ago I got a 4 record set "American top 40 with casey casem" (12/1/84 show)) and this song is #28 . I love it!!!!


I dunno why they didnt play this more in the 80s.... They played I CAN DREAM ABOUT YOU like crazy and I dont think that is as good!!


What have you heard recently that you didnt hear then?? (Since you have been alive)

Well... going back a ways, a lot of 80's songs were "new" to me from 1996 through the early 2000s (that is, I never heard them until then).

And there were some 90's songs that were "new" to me in the early-mid 2000s. For example, "Ready To Go" by Republica; that one was popular in 1996 but I never remember hearing it then; first time I heard it was in '01.

Great topic!

A few years ago, Sia's Chandelier was hugely popular; I didn't care for it- maybe because it was played overmuch. I don't know, I just didn't like it and it annoyed me.
Well fast forward a bit. I was going on a Youtube adventure that I will sometimes do, where I pick a music video, set it to autoplay and then go do other things while I listen to whatever random stuff YT throws at me. Sometimes it's good, sometimes not so much, but usually it's interesting. A song came on that I thought was really good. The singer sounded familiar and when I looked to see what was playing I saw that it was Sia. Hmm! Well, I pulled up a playlist of Sia and started listening to her other music and found song after song that I really enjoy. Cheap Thrills, Elastic heart, so so many. I had dismissed a singer based on one song, and it was a mistake. This is the song that made me 'discover' Sia.

Wooly Bully by BTO.  It was from a film called 'American Boyfriends' and was a minor hit in Canada in late 1989.  I knew it was a cover song and I always knew their version existed, but I'd never heard it until just recently when I found a copy

I didn't know it was a cover, but I seem to have known this song.
