The_Pretenders_2000_MilesThere are one more Thursday (after this one) to go before Christmas.  So its fitting that this weeks musical throwback Thursday is a Christmas themed.  The song is 2000 Miles by The Pretenders. This is off their third album called Learning to Crawl.  Which was released in 1984.  This song released in 1983 before Christmas that year.  I hear this every day at work now.  It is one of better ones.  Give it a listen > here or below.

Fatboy_Slim_Praise_YouIt’s musical throwback Thursday once again.  While watching some TV an ad came on for some jewelry.  The song in the back ground sounded very familiar.  Then it hit me, was Praise You.   It was a contemporary version of the song original done by Fatboy Slim.   This is off this second album You’re Come a Long Way, Baby, released in 1998.  The official music video is something very special.  Which you can see > here or below.  It is very low rent.  Which makes its awesome.  It has a group of very crappy dancers in front of a movie theatre dancing to this song.  While people in line to buy tickets look on. Having no clue what is going on.

Phats_Small_Turn_AroundTime again for musical throwback Thursday.  For this weeks song have stumbled across one I have not heard in many years.  Like a lot of music of this type back in the day.  Sampled other songs when added repetitive vocals.  That being said I think it still holds up well and fun to listen to.  It’s Turn Around by Paths & Small.  This may be their only big hit but is is a good one.  It is off their 1999 album called Now Phats What I Small Music.  You can listen/watch > here or below.

Delerium_SilenceIt’s musical throwback Thursday.  The song this week is Silence featuring Sarah McLachlan by Delerium.  Not sure if I have ever heard the original version of this song.   It has been remixed many times.  Which is where I know it most from.  This song stands the test of time.  First released in 1999 of their album Karma.  Years later it can still be heard.  Not just because its an awesome song.  Think it because of Sarah McLachlan voice.  Which is pretty amazing.  Think this the most popular version of the song > here or below.

Peter_Bjorn_And_John_Young_FolksTime for musical throwback Thursday.  The song this week is Young Folks by Peter Bjorn and John.  Picking this song because it has been stuck in my head after hearing it used in the Google Home mini ad.  At first was thinking this might be too new for the rules.  Turns out the song is off their third album, Writer’s Block, released in 2006.  Think this is their biggest hit.  But it’s a good one.  Has been featured in movies, TV and games.  You can give it a listen/watch > here or below.  So it can be stuck in your head as well.

The_Whispers_And__The_Beat_Goes_OnIt is musical throwback Thursday.  Hard a hard time trying to think of a song to pick.  So just did some random search.  Ended up coming across And The Beat Goes On by The Whispers.  This is a pretty well known song.  After looking up info on this song read it was used in GTA: Vice City.  Played the hell out of that game but don’t remember hearing it.  The song is their self titled album from 1979 called The Whispers.  According to Wikipedia this is their ninth studio album.  You can see the music video > here or below.
