Supersonic

Today at work, I was back at the computer working on clinical stuff, listening to the radio (I know, I couldn't believe it either.) Anyway, it was one of those 80s lunch hour things, and I was amazed by the fact that they were playing Erasure's "Chains of Love." I didn't think that those 80s shows strayed very far from the usual suspects.

Oh, how little I knew.

The DJ comes on and says that every now and again, she gets a request that just makes her laugh because she hasn't thought of the requested song in so long. And apparently, this was true of the song she was about to play. The song, you ask?

J.J. Fad's "Supersonic."

I was bowled over. That song had seriously disappeared from my brain utterly and completely. And now, here it was, back in after probably almost 20 years. It was like going by a car accident and not being able to help yourself. I had to listen to it. I couldn't turn off the radio.

And I can't believe I blew 99 cents buying the song on iTunes. I mean, you knew I would.
