While the Cathy is away the mice will play? But, how it’s summer what should I expect, right? I’m going a little playing and whole lot of tackling odd jobs. One thing I’m busy taking care of and am making good progress on is repairing blog posts. You know pesky broken links, missing posts, grammar corrections, rearranging lay out, or whatever catches my eye.
One of the broken links I fixed happened to be a video Katrina and the Waves. You probably remember this British-American rock band for their 1985 smash hit, Walking on Sunshine.
Honestly, I don’t remember any other productions by the group. They won the Eurovision Song Contest with Love Shine a Light in 1997 and this is an introduction to me.
The Bangles’ covered “Going Down to Liverpool” in 1984; written by Kimberley Rew former KATW’s guitartist and recorded a year later by Katrina and the Waves.
CHINA BEACH was a TV series I enjoyed watching when time allowed in the 90s. Katrina and the Waves featuring Eric Burdon recorded, “We Got to Get Out of This Place” for the show.
Katrina is a talent that got lost somewhere in my mind or on the airwaves or both. If she slipped off your radar to then allow me to share some of her newer works.
In 2004, Katrina released her first solo album, TURN THE TIDE.
From her 2011 album SPIRITUALIZE I found the track, “There Is a Light”.
2014, Katrina release BLISLAND. Let me call to your attention track two, Sun Coming Upper, on this playlist I particularly like and I hope you listen to it.
Last month, her newest album THE VERY BEST OF KATRINA featuring many of the songs I share with you today if interested, you can find it below!
It’s great having the Dancing Queen, aka XmasDolly back with us this week. Welcome back, my friend! I’m happy to report she said she’s about 90% her old self again. I invite you to hit the dance floor with the M4 gang XmasDolly, Stacy, Colette , and myself. This week’s theme is “FREEBIE pick – your choice”
