Maestro_Fresh_Wes_Symphony_In_EffectIt is musical throwback Thursday.  The song this week is Drop The Needle by Maestro Fresh Wes. He now goes by Maestro.  In 1989 his first album came out called Symphony in Effect.  He had a huge hit off that called Let Your Backbone Slide.  Both of these songs hold up well to this day.  I like Drop the Needle much better.  You can see the music video > here or below.

Kid_Rock_BawitdabaTime again for musical throwback Thursday.  In the late 90’s the rap rock songs were the next big thing.  One of the biggest was Bawitdaba by Kid Rock. This song made him very famous.  He may be a country singer now.  But when I heard this song > here or below it doesn’t sound like that would be even possible.  The song is off his 1998 album called Devil Without a Cause.

Baz_Luhrmann_Everybodys_Free_To_Wear_Sunscreen It is that day of the week again, musical throwback Thursday.  The song this week is Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen) by Baz Luhrmann.  Well it is not your regular song.  It is a spoken word type poem with music behind it.  This is off the 1998 album Something for Everybody.  I can remember seen the video of it and is this.  Which you can see > here or below.  All so remember it being a bit of a hit.  At the time is was something so different than all the other music.  While looking up info for this post.  Turns out the “song” is based off of a essay written as a commencement speech.
