30 years ago today, Pearl Jam played their first live show at the Off Ramp Café in Seattle. At that point they went under the name Mookie Blaylock in reference to the NBA basketball player. A band that has meant so much to me since the release of “Ten” in 1991. And I finally saw them live and direct at the Forum Copenhagen in 2007. Good times. #PearlJam

John Lennon would have been 80 years old today. Always remembered, never forgotten. Rest in peace John. ✨🙏🏻✨#JohnLennon

2020 keeps on serving us godforsaken news….. Eddie Van Halen, the legendary guitarist and co-founder of Van Halen has died after a long battle with throat cancer. How I have listened to Van Halen over and over since the early 80s and I still do. What a fantastic band and what a guitarist Eddie Van Halen was. Rest in peace Eddie….. 😢😢😢 #EddieVanHalen #VanHalen

Today´s positive/magic song is Planet Funk´s “Who Said (Stuck In The UK)” from their debut album “Non Zero Sumness” released in 2002. This song was the third single from the album which gained significant commercial success.

Fantastic song! Big hit when I moved down to Australia in 2003. Good memories! #CoronaBeGoneYouBastard #DayHundred

 

Today´s positive/magic song is Tina Turner´s “We Don’t Need Another Hero (Thunderdome)” It appeared in the 1985 film “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome”, which starred Turner and Mel Gibson. The song was written by Terry Britten and Graham Lyle. On the heels of Turner’s multiplatinum album “Private Dancer”, the song was released as a 7″ single, an extended version was released as a 12″ single and on the film’s soundtrack album. In the UK, a shaped picture disc was also released. The power ballad received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Song and a Grammy nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance in 1986. As songwriters, Lyle and Britten received the 1985 Ivor Novello award for Best Song Musically and Lyrically. The music video received an MTV Video Music Award nomination for Best Female Video.

“We Don’t Need Another Hero (Thunderdome)” became one of Tina Turner’s biggest worldwide hit singles. The single peaked at number two on the United States Billboard Hot 100, behind only “St. Elmo’s Fire (Man in Motion)” by John Parr, at number three in the UK and reached number one in Canada, Australia, Germany, Poland, Spain and Switzerland.

Still fantastic. #CoronaBeGoneYouBastard #DayNinetynine
