“Vienna Calling” by Falco

When is the last time you got on the telephone and made a voice call to someone other than your parents or grandparents? When is the last time you called your best friend?

According to this 2018 op/ed, it’s time we brought back the telephone call.

Today is National Telephone Day. Make this long overt-due calls today. You have a good excuse now. And if your calls go straight into voicemail, play them this song and tell them to call you back.

For some reason this version has a flute line in places. This did not appear on the original 7 inch single.

If you want to buy the phone seen in the photo above, you can find it on amazon.

Have a great day. Go make those calls!

“The Final Countdown” COVERED? and New Year’s resolutions

A few days ago I asked my friends over on SpaceHey what songs they like to put on a New Year’s Eve playlist. One song was mentioned over and over. That’s “The Final Countdown” by Europe. You know, it was a massive hit in the 1980s, But did you know it was covered by the Slovenian Industrial band called Laibach.

Far out video right? I love it.

The second part of this blog is about New Year’s resolutions. Do you have one? Share it in the comments!

I have two resolutions this year. One is to simply try something new. My second one is to figure out how to live stream on YouTube. Cheers and Happy New Year!
