Throwback Thursday - 10/14/10

>> Most people know about Music Monday and Follow Friday, two things that happen each week on Twitter. I participate in both of these, but I wanted to do something else- something original. Sometime last week I thought of Throwback Thursday, and I decided to go through with it since people seemed to like the idea. So here we are! What I plan on doing is posting 2 songs each Thursday: One from the 60's, 70's, or 80's that people should know, and another from the 90's or early 2000's that should make everyone say "OH YEAH I remember that song!" I'll give a little background on the song, including the year it was released, and what the band/artist is doing today. Let's see how well this works out!

>> #ThrowbackThursday - “Your Love” by The Outfield

> From the album Play Deep, released in 1985
> The Outfield went on to release Bangin’ (1986), Super Hits (1998), Any Time Now (2006), and more. Since then, the song has been covered by several artists including (2009), Pull The PinBon Iver (2008), and Katy Perry (2007). Wyclef Jean & Eve covered and remixed it for the 50 First Dates soundtrack (2005). I See Stars even covered it for Punk Goes Classic Rock (2010). Overall, this song is a classic.

>> #ThrowbackThursday - “Last Resort” by Papa Roach

> From the album Infest, released in 2000.
> Since then, the band has released 5 albums including Getting Away With Murder (2004), Metamorphosis (2009), and most recently Time For Annihilation: On the Record and On the Road (2010). Lead singer Jacoby Shaddix once hosted the MTV show “Scarred”, which premiered in 2007. Shaddix had to stop hosting the show due to his band’s touring schedule. Today, Papa Roach continues to tour around the world.
