The Third Time is the Charm

 

What would the history of home entertainment have been without Blockbuster and Nintendo?

 

The home videogame console industry was regenerated with the release of Nintendo NES in 1985. The third generation system introduced games now legendary: Super Mario Brothers and The Legend of Zelda.

The Corvette: A Love Story

Which car was your first love?

A Mustang? The Monte Carlo? How about a Corvette?

Pictured above is the 1978 Silver Anniversary Edition – my dream car. The next year (’79) saw the highest production of Vettes in its history.

 

Chevrolet Corvette sales reportedly doubled after one series hit the airwaves 60 years ago today:

Route 66, an American adventure crime drama thriller-themed series, followed two young men from different backgrounds on a cross-country journey to find themselves – in a Corvette.

The 4-season series originally starred Martin Milner and George Maharis. Glenn Corbett later took over Maharis’ role during the final year of filming. All episodes were filmed in black and white.

September’s Song

 

We often tend to feel a touch of nostalgia as seasons change from summer to fall. Some folks would even say it’s the most emotionally-charged time on the calendar, aside from Thanksgiving / Christmas / New Year’s.

 

September is ending this week, so it’s time to recognize a piece of our modern musical heritage of the same title as the month itself. You may be mutually fascinated by the details surrounding the creation of this hit.

 

Television, commercials, movies, sporting events, video games, and even political conventions (of both major parties) have spotlighted this memorable song! And, how fitting for co-songwriter Allee Willis to be honored while she was still with us. Music video links are found here:

Honey of a Song

 

How many songs would you guess include the word honey in the title?

No one knows for sure, yet this list captures most of them. Please take notice: many listed here are not family-friendly, so do tread carefully.

Lots of good ones are in the mix, most of which you’ll easily recognize.

100 Songs About Honey

I’m featuring a song from the hit charts of its day, although not widely remembered today. There’s awkward monologue inserted, a misfortune of several 1950s and 60s tunes.

Sentimental country-western fans always appreciate hearing the speaking voice of great music legends, regardless. Especially when that soul is no longer walking the earth, and we can’t hear them talk in real-time any longer. What’s more, the crying chorus glosses over any lyrical lack of substance.

Let’s sit back now and bask in the blend of lilting notes and addictive emotion. Glen may convince us why Honey fits this song title perfectly.
