Song of the day: East Side Beat- Ride Like The Wind

East+Side+Beat+-+Ride+Like+The+Wind

Oh dear! It’s Saturday again! That means putting on your dancing clothes and start dancing to the record I selected. Today, I’ve got a cover for you. It was written and recorded by Christopher Cross in 1980. This version went up in the American chart, but was kept from the first spot by Blondie’s Call Me. This meant it stuck to a second place. The single was dedicated to Lowell George, who died in 1979. The song itself is about a Mexican man, running to the border. He is sentenced to dead, and if he doesn’t run that fast, he will die. A kind of Western, where the bad guy is trying to survive… The song was picked up by some Italians in 1991, who made a typical nineties dance version of the song. Once more it went up in the charts, but it didn’t reach the highest position. Get dancing to

Song of the day: Christopher Cross- Sailing

Christopher_Cross_-_Sailing_(single)

Some songs have great lyrics. This early eighties song has them. Or I think it has great lyrics. Because it’s about sailing, but I have never sailed. I’ve never been on a sailing boat. But if I may believe this song, it’s a great experience to forget all your problems and get away from the world for a little time. Enjoy
