Today's Ear Worm


Friday, July 18, 2014

Woke up with this song in my head: Amy Grant's "Sing Your Praise to the Lord", off of her 1982 album "Age to Age".
You know, the one with "El Shaddai" on it.

I grew up sanctified Pentecostal holy-roller; attended an ACE school and everything, and was not allowed to listen to secular music. This was the only kind of above-the-board music that was allowed in the house.

**Sidebar: you know how commercial cassette tapes were made so that you couldn't record on them? Well, if you were an industrious middle schooler with a yen for that FANTASTIC 80's era hard rock/heavy metal but weren't allowed to buy any, you could dub borrowed tapes/record albums off on to other tapes by placing electrical or thick masking tape over the little divots on the top of the cassette. So, for example, you could have a cassette tape that purported to be Silverwind or Petra or Honeytree but was actually a recording of Pat Benatar or Iron Maiden or Def Leppard. Or, most memorably, an Amy Grant cassette that actually played a taped radio broadcast of "Dr. Demento."
