We re-discovered an old box of vinyl records this weekend.

The selection used to be owned (and I’m sure thoroughly enjoyed) by J’s mom & dad. And let me tell you, it doesn’t disappoint. What’s more, I think it’s only half of the total vinyl awesomeness that once was. The picks are a lot of 70s and 80s, and includes bands and artists I know well and others I have no clue of. Thank you, YouTube.

What I’ve learned about this time in music is, well, a few things. For one, drugs are amazing and awful. The clothes, the hair, the band names,and the album and song titles. Second, duos and trios rule. Or maybe these decades just had an affection for the ampersand. Hall & Oates. Chad & Jeremy. Crosby, Stills and Nash. Ike & Tina.  Loggins & Messina. Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass.

And lastly, and this is a no-brainer: Mustaches rule. Peruse (and enjoy) the awesome evidence of ‘staches:

Not that I don’t appreciate a good cover song or sample, but it seems I’m hearing more and more and more of them these days.  Or, now that I think of it, maybe I’m just getting older and know more songs.  Well, I certainly move to strike that last statement from the books.  Anywho, I was just listening to some jams at work and suddenly I realize I’m singing the lyrics to Tainted Love – however, not the 80s Soft Cell hit I know so well and love.  Come to find out, it’s the original 60s Tainted Love by Gloria Jones.  

Which version do you like better?
