The Campaign For DA


Very Random Music Thought

The song "True" by Spandau Ballet won't go away. I really, really liked it when it came out in 1983, but I'm amazed at how it continues to show up. (You've heard it - proof here.) If you listen to any contemporary station right now (and this is what prompted me to start typing at this moment), it has raised its head again in the form of some song named "You" by somebody named "Lloyd." (I don't know, either.) But it's had second lives along the way. The song is the underlying beat in "Set Adrift on Memory Bliss" by P.M. Dawn and "N Dey Say" by Nelly. Both cool songs. Throw in its appearance in movies from "Sixteen Candles" to "The Wedding Singer" to "The Wedding Crashers" and it's a major pop culture player.
