There aren’t any REAL SURPRISES when you’re playing the hits in alphabetical order; all the songs and artists pop up EXACTLY when you expect them. (A is for A-HA, B is for the Bangles, C is for Cyndi Lauper, et cetera, et cetera.)
But what you LEARN about some of your favorites as our APRIL A-To-Z gets started will certainly shed some new light on your favorite songs from the video music era, including…
A – “Africa” by Toto
We all love this song… the “do do do do do do do doooooo’s”…the whole VIBE. But the guys of Toto have another reason to be excited; new data is in showing that Toto’s “Africa” is now the most popular song at a VERY SPECIFIC PLACE many of us have been! Find out where it is, as we begin this weekend of April A-To-Z in the A’s.
B – Billy’s PREVIOUS life?
There is NO SONG that screams Billy Joel quite like Piano Man. But before Billy discovered his musical talents, he was pursuing a very DIFFERENT life. Learn about what Billy COULD have done, had he not turned into a musician, in the B’s this weekend.
C – “Cars” by Gary Numan
You know how when you hear a term to describe something you’ve experienced YEARS after you actually experienced it? That’s what Gary Numan is describing with this song; a very unique experience related to all things automotive (that some of us may have seen or experienced too). Get the backstory during April A-To-Z this weekend!
