Random Play: Crushed my groove again

Now, it's distance and time that allows me to approach this track as an audiophile might. When it was contemporary, though, it was among a number of music videos I'd impatiently wait through in order to gawk at "The Reflex" one more time.

I could've sworn on a stack of shiny vintage car keys that this track as produced by same dude that produced ZZ Top--and not solely because it's firmly set in the world of fast vehicles and has a mid-Eighties video with a cast of a thousand extras.

No, I'm wrong, though Ted Templeman, unsurprisingly, did helm Van Halen records, and, very surprisingly, earlier recordings that are both ecstatic and smooth.

Which means the same dude that brought you "Hot For Teacher" also made "Tupelo Honey" happen.

I love the spectrum.

I didn't, however, love my dinner at the Red Rocker's restaurant in Cabo. He should stick to music.
