He Got Lucky: Puttin’ on the Ritz by Taco

He Got Lucky: Puttin’ on the Ritz by Taco

It’s September of 1983: Martina Navratilova wins her first Wimbledon, The Big Chill was king of the box office, Vanessa Williams is the first black Miss America, and the #4 song in America is… Puttin’ on the Ritz by Taco?? How and why did this song from the 1920s regain popularity in the 80s and should it have been such a huge hit? Tim and Q break down the interesting Dutch-Indonesian performer behind the song, the Dutch-Indonesian rock scene that he rose from, and the power behind MTV music video selections during that period, and, for the first time, they both agree: it should NOT have been a hit!

This Song Changed Music Forever: “Believe” by Cher

Cher is waaaaay bigger than you thought! She has been a pop star, fashion icon, Oscar-winning actress, and cultural phenom since the mid-60s but didn’t have her biggest number 1 until she was 52 years old! Regrouping in London after being dropped by her label Cher worked with an innovative producer and a brand new technology: Auto-Tune to create the smash dance hit “Believe” which became not just her biggest hit, but one of the biggest selling records of all-time!! More than that, she introduced a new technology to the music world, and the music world would never be the same.

How the @#$!% Was That a Hit: “My Ding-a-Ling”

How the @#$!% Was That a Hit: “My Ding-a-Ling”

In the summer of 1972, the US was withdrawing forces from Vietnam, there were talks of a mysterious burglary at the Watergate Hotel, the first episode of The Price is Right aired, and for two weeks Chuck Berry’s “My Ding-a-Ling” was the number 1 song in America. It was rock and roll progenitor Berry’s only number 1 and it’s awful! Or is it? Why did it go to number 1? A huge swath of folks in their 30s and 40’s were deeply nostalgic for the 1950s, radio DJs had a massive influence, and don’t forget the stunning work the crowd did singing in rhythm and on key!! Watch as Q and Tim dive in to figure it all out.
