Sugar and Spice

Hey ho - Happy Friday all!

Another nice weekend is forecasted for the weekend here in the Northeast. We are supposed to get temps in the 80's That's a little warm for me, but the humidity is low so I can cope with it!

I'm off to run some errands for the day but didn't want to leave you without this weeks song.

If you were a big hair ban fan of the 80's you may like this one. I am not, but I thought the song was fitting for the theme that I'm going with here.

The song is a bit more spicy than sugar, but it has sugar in the title. I think one of the famous lines of the song goes something like this: "I'm hot, sticky sweet, from my head down to my feet! Yeah!"

Can any one guess before peeking?

It's Def Leppard's Pour Some Sugar on Me. The idea of the song was actually taken from the song "Sugar, Sugar" by the Archies, but it's a bit more sexual than their song I think!

The interesting thing about Def Leppard is that the drummer Rick Allen lost his arm in a car accident so only plays the drum with one arm. I give him a lot of credit for that - he kept doing what he loves to do despite his loss.

Turn up the volume and rock on all!

"You got the peaches, I got the cream
Sweet to taste, saccharine
'Cos I'm hot, say what, sticky sweet
From my head, my head, to my feet"

That ought to get the blood pumping for your weekend!

I may regret admitting this, but I still that song is sexy.

After the drummer lost his arm, his bandmates said that they wanted him to continue to be their drummer even if they had to hire another one to play alongside him. Turns out they didn't need to hire an additional drummer because he was able to perform just as well with one arm.

Why would you live to regret it Kari - a good song is a good song! I actually like it too, but I have to admit at first I was a bit skeptical!

I never knew the lyrics. I did see them in concert in 1978-79 (something like that). They were not well know back then. I was in the front row at the Allentown Fairgrounds. I never liked them much, but I appreciate them more now. They kind of grow on you.

I usually turn the volume up to speaker melting levels when this comes on the car radio, then wonder what kind of a dork it makes me look like! LOL. Love the bad 80s hair.
