Title: Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth with Money in My Hand
Artist: Primitive Radio Gods
Release: June 1996
Did You Know: This one hit wonder gained fame after being featured in the “Cable Guy” soundtrack before it was released as a single. The song heavily samples “How Blue Can You Get” by B.B. King, who is conveniently performing at the Northern Quest Casino on Saturday, May 5th. No, I’m not getting paid to write that! I’m offended you would even think such a thing! But if you do go to the show and mention this blog, that would be great. K thanks bye.

Title: A Real Hero
Artist: College featuring Electric Youth
Did You Know: This hauntingly beautiful song isn’t from the 80’s, but it might as well be. A key component of the amazing soundtrack from the movie “Drive”, A Real Hero provides the perfect atmosphere for Ryan Gosling’s finest hour. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, you should, but prepare for a gritty flick that harkens back to film noir of the 40’s and 50’s. While your at it, buy the soundtrack. Best album of the year…double stamp it!

Title: The Promise
Artist: When In Rome
Release: June 1988
Peak Chart Position: #11
Did You Know: Not only was When In Rome a one-hit wonder with “The Promise”, but the band only released a single album before breaking up. How would’ve the world been different if the band had stayed together? No one knows for sure, but most experts speculate that Justin Beiber would never have been born, the Mariners would have won multiple World Series, and zombies would occupy 90% of retail jobs. If you think you recognize this song, it’s probably from Napoleon Dynamite, where it was featured in the end credits.
