NTM on WDAS: Diana Ross, "These Things Will Keep Me Lovin' You" (orig done by the Velvelettes, apparently).
You spin me right 'round, baby, right 'round

Listening to Glen Sauter's "Hits of Yesteryear" podcast, and here's a dee-liteful twin-spin of the post-Diana Supes: "Floy Joy" --> "Nathan Jones". Swoon!

followed by a Monkees rarity, "When Love Comes Knocking" -- a forgotten Neil Sedaka compo.

2NG's retro-chart is from July 1984.  An Ozzy Osbourne ballad? "So Tired" is NTM at #39.

OMFG: Divine's disco hit "So You Think You're a Man?" is hilarious. An early Stock/Aitken/Waterman production.

wow, hadn't heard Elvis C's "I wanna be Loved" in ages.

OMFG2: Lloyd Cole, "Perfect Skin"!

One of Shannon's follow-ups to "Let the Music PL-HAYYYY": "Sweet Somebody".

ooo! Echo/B-men: "Seven Seas". Kissin' the tor-toyz shell! And Scritti Politti's "Absolute" which I also haven't heard in many moons.

and still another forgotten track: Human League, "Life On Your Own"

The afternoon DJ at WDAS just played "Give me Just a Little More Time" and outro-ed by saying "man, that General Johnson -- been a long time sing I saw him!" Well, considering that he died nearly 2 years ago...

Ooops.
