Queen_Hot_SpaceTime again for musical throwback Thursday.  Has been a long time I have a picked a Queen song.  While I am a huge fan of them I don’t know all their songs.  So going to share one I discovered a few days ago.  It is Action This Day off their 1982 album Hot Space.  Do like it a lot.  Am thinking I need to listen to all their albums from start to finish.  You can hear Action This Day > here or below.

Beck_LoserOnce again it is musical throwback Thursday.  The pick this week is Loser by Beck.  Can remember this song being a huge hit in the early 90’s.  The video was on TV for weeks.  From what I have read looking up info on this post.  It was first released in 1993 independently.  Then re-released in 1994 off his album, Mellow Gold.  Think the song holds up well.  So does the video some what.  Since it was designed at a low cost.  You can see/hear it > here or below.

Cake_The_DistanceTime for another musical throwback Thursday.  The pick this week is The Distance by Cake.  Forgot all about this song until looking at YouTube recommend lists.  Back in the day when you could still see top ten music videos on TV.  This one was on there for many weeks.  The song is off their 1996 album Fashion Nugget.  It’s a much different song than most because he doesn’t really sing more of a spoken work thing.  Give it a watch/listen > here or below.

Foster_The_People_Pumped_Up_KicksThat day of the week again, musical throwback Thursday.  The pick is Pumped up Kicks by Foster The People.  While looking up a song to pick thought of this one but didn’t think it fit since it can’t be ten years old.  Turns out I was wrong.  It was released on September 2010.  It was first on their EP Foster The People.  Then put on their first album Torches which was released in 2011.  It’s a great song.  Which you can hear/watch > here or below.
