Oh, Bad English, let me start off by saying that I really need to give you more credit.  I know it’s not fair, but I had this picture of you guys as kind of a washed-up bunch of rockers trying to make one more album and making a mediocre go of it.   738 more words

Radio L, side A, track 2: "The Boys Are Back In Town" by Bon Jovi

Radio XLIL, side B, track 7: "Emotions In Motion" by Billy Squier

Oh, Billy Squier, welcome to the blog!  When I recorded this song, I knew absolutely nothing about you.  I would go on to record several other songs by you in the next year, and I don’t think I ever knew any of those songs were  by you, either.   399 more words
