I Sing The Body Electric

I sing the body electric/I celebrate the me yet to come
I toast to my own reunion/When I become one with the sun

Indelibly in my head since I was about 14. An exultant anthem of youth, and yet another song reminiscent of my time in the Jewish teen scene, when everything was Dramatic and Intense And Amazing.

Artist: Michael Gore (writer); Performed in the movie Fame by Laura Dean, Irene Cara, Paul McCrane, Traci Parnell, and Eric Brockington
Year: 1980

Night Shift

Came into my head the other day simply by talking to Scott about his schedule (he works graveyard). It's been circling in my mind for days. Watching the video made me tear up. RIP Marvin and Jackie.

I Can't Tell You Why

Timothy Schmidt's vocals on this song are so lovely and androgynous that it became a Linda Ronstadt tune in my mind.

I think the mental production of this song, which I probably haven't heard in 20 years or so, is a result of listening to a Steely Dan Pandora station this weekend with friends. N'est ce pas, Jess et Chris?
