Song of the Week (outside of hip hop)

I heard this song in a movie not too long ago and I just knew that I had to purchase it for the pod. This joint came out back in ’83. It has a chill melody to it and a lot of the portions of the song just matched in with the music made during that time.

If this continues the mixtape for the song of the week series will have an overload of energy. Enjoy this week’s selection. Continue reading
