The 80's Old School Jam Of The Moment is "I Melt With You" by Modern English.
Modern English was a British New Wave band and was from their 1982 album "After The Snow" and if you can believe it, "I Melt With You" only made it to number #78 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in 1983. Terrible.
The song was featured prominently in the movie "Valley Girl" and although MTV had it in heavy rotation and the band re-released it with mixes in 1990 and it re-entered the Billboard charts going all the way to......#76, just two places higher than when it was first released.
At least VH-1 ranked it at #39 in their top 100 songs of the 80's list.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Modern English re-recorded the song again 2010 and this time.....the world still didn't stop...and the song didn't chart.
Our Old School Jam Of The Moment is "Amadeus" by Falco. The song hit number 1 world-wide in 1985.
Falco is the first Austrian singer to ever have a U.S. number 1. The song was inspired by the Oscar winning movie of the movie of the same name "Amadeus" which was released in 1984.
Three headed or not, enjoy "Amadeus" by Falco, our Old School Jam Of The Moment.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Baby, baby, do it to me, rock me.....
The first Old School Jam Of The Moment Of 2013 is "Poison" by Bell Biv Devoe.
The song was recorded in 1989 and released in the early part of 1990 and samples from Kool G. Rap's song called "Poison" as well. The song stalled at number #3 on the Billboard Charts for 3 weeks in June of 1990, even though the single went platinum.
The song was followed by "Do Me" where the band wore overalls in the video. When school started back that fall, everyone was wearing overalls spray-painted with different artwork.
Because of Bell Biv Devoe, the sayings "Never trust a big butt and a smile" and "the J the I the M the M the Y y'll" are still a staple to this day.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Still doesn't trust a big butt and a smile....
The Old School Jam Of The Moment Is "Goody Two Shoes" By Adam Ant.
The song was released in 1982 and was an instant hit in the UK, hitting number 1 on the charts. The song peaked at #12 on the US Billboard Charts. It was Adam's biggest U.S. hit.
Since 2010, Adam has been constantly touring and revitalizing his career through his live performance of his hits.
He has been battling mental illness and health issues for the past decade but recently, it seems he has been able to put that behind him.
"Don't drink. Don't smoke. What do you do? Subtle innuendos follow." Classic lyrics.

The Old School Jam Of The Moment is "Funkytown" by Lipps Inc.
The song is a funk classic....and also was the premise of this week's episode of "Parenthood" on NBC. A main couple had sexy-time labeled as "Funkytown" in their phone's calendar.
Needless to say, he messed up and did not get a trip to "Funkytown" that night.
Hopefully this weekend, a lot of you will find your way to "Funkytown"......-DocFB
Our Old School Jam Of The Moment is "Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of These) by The Eurythmics. The single debuted in 1983.
"Sweet Dreams" surprisingly is the duo's ONLY number 1 U.S. hit. The duo consisted of Dave Stewart and Annie Lennox, who pulled the androgyny act long before Lady Gaga did.
The band broke up a few times and got back together but have been broken up since 2005.

Diagnosis: Schweet Dreams......

Still cool. Still rockin' it. Still FUNKY!

Our Old School Jam Of The Moment is "The Longest Time" by Billy Joel. It is really amazing what good vocals and finger snaps can add without music.
We are DESPERATELY awaiting for Billy Joel to release new material. No tours with Elton John but new material.
Stop frontin'! You know this song has soul. Remember when radio was cool? Black n white artists being played on the same station? Not many white artists now are as soulful as Billy Joel, but still.
