Dance Dance Revolution!

For everybody on deadline or stressed out from the holidays.

This first song has been getting me through for almost 20 years now. (I do have a thing for James Browns' spiritual godsons, especially the ones who like to change their names. I'd include a video from His Purple Badness, but I'd get sued.) Best lines: "It ain't easy. Giving up is the easy thing to do. Time is on your side, but you just watch the clock and let it tick for you."

This song has only been getting me through a few weeks, but I can tell already that I'm going to listen to this whenever I want a boost. Best line: "Feels so good when you're doing all the things that you want to do." Yay, Mary J. is back!

OK, back to work!

Carleen, I had a mad crush on TTD, what a rush to see him again. Why, oh, why didn't he go one to make more music or did he? He is a huge talent. Thanks for the blast from the past.

He did go on to make more music, but nothing hit like that first album. He also changed his name. Here's his site:

I learn something new all the time when I come here....TTD was someone I'd almost forgotten about until I saw this clip!! And a new name? That would explain why we've forgotten!!!

Carleen, I've left a little something for you at Sage today!

I loved Wishing Well, too. That whole album really was dynamite!
