Hi-Fi Friday: September 4, 2015


I have this method of ranking music in my library, which currently consists of 34,968 songs: By default, all new songs in my library get ⭐️⭐️⭐️. As I listen to them, I sort them as follows: ⭐️ means it’s “rubbish” (as Dr. Spo would say) and I’ll probably delete it from the library, ⭐️⭐️ means it’s just “meh” but I’ll probably keep it, ⭐️⭐️⭐️ means it’s okay and we will probably talk over it, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ means I really like and may potentially sing at random, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ means everyone better shut the fuck up because my song is on! You know the kind of songs I’m talking about. We all have them.

These are mine, one post at a time.

I’m starting my approach to this with songs I’ve given ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ to in iTunes. There’s only 90 of them at the moment. I’ll probably sneak in an occasional ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ as well.

And for this month, we–meaning Blobby and me–are doing songs that make you want to stop what you’re doing and get up and shake your tail feathers! Blobby allowed me to pick this month, and that was the first thing that popped into my head.

At least that was the plan. Hopefully it’s still the plan. I’m behind. I haven’t been able to read any blogs since before leaving for New Orleans. I’m back-dating this post, as I had an issue with my WordPress database that wouldn’t allow me to post remotely while traveling, so it’s been sitting here, waiting on me to rebuild the home computer which crashed while we were gone, so I could post things.

But on with the post!

This was released in 1987, and I still haven’t tired of it. Almost 30 years ago! I remember buying this cassette. Twice. Because I listened to the entire tape so many times that it stretched the tape out. And here, almost 30 years later, it has been with me in almost every form of media that has been released since then.

If there is one song in my life that keeps making me move, it’s one particular song from this album. I don’t know why (anymore), but it’s my “default” go-to song when I feel the need to move around. Definitely rock. Yet dance-y. And soooooo many remixes were done.

I give you INXS’ “New Sensation”:

Until next time...
