Song of the Day: 'Dancing' by Kylie Minogue

What does everyone think of Kylie's "Golden" album? (I'm just getting around to listening.) My AZ-best-friend is a big fan -- he thinks some of the bonus tracks even surpass the official songs -- but I'm still a little on the fence about the whole thing. Her voice bothers me more than usual -- not sure if that's processing, aging, trying to sound "country" or Westville Girl Syndrome.

Song of the Day: 'Stars on 45' by Stars on 45

It was so nice having drinks last week with my former Times colleague and fellow late '60s-born baby Jesse Fox Mayshark, who totally got my Stars on 45 reference on the first try! 

Old-timers will remember that it hit number one in 1981, interrupting Kim Carnes's nine weeks on top of the Billboard Hot 100 for one week. The whole thing seems rather ridiculous now -- disco/Archies/Beatles -- but perhaps the recent assassination of John Lennon set the stage for this most bizarre medley that my brother Bill and I couldn't get enough of while riding back and forth to the La Casita tennis center in our old neighborhood.
