  1. Gawd I hope that didn't reach Billboard top-100. Maybe top 1,000,000, maybe, lol.
  2. They're talented Doc. Currently ranked 11th best roster in the NFL. LINK Lowest ranked QB offsets a very talented roster. They 'could' improve if a QB falls or if they move-up.
  3. Jimmy Donovan with former Browns FO and current NFL draft talking head Daniel Jeremiah. LINK Great listen. Jimmy and Daniel know and knew each other since Daniel was with the Browns. Jimmy gives him #### for the terrible draft Jeremiah 'helped' with, lol. Remember LB Beau Bell? After ribbing each other they go cover the overall draft leading up to talking Browns pick. Go to the 6:00 minute mark to hear what DJ says, pretty interesting. He talks 'moving out/down' Jimmy counters by discussing CB and DJ didn't realize how big a need CB was which I found very interesting. Gives an insight as to why national pundits who don't know the team focus on LB so highly as a need for the Browns without really understanding but at the same time DJ does make a valid point for moving down which many following the club seem to overlook. Also a name to file away, the CB from Georgia who is reported to be rising. Lots of good info in this clip.
  4. 47. Michael Jackson - Wanna Be Starting Something I think I can safely say the line: You're a vegetable ... Has only been used in this song in the entire history of top-100 songs. Pretty sure but haven't gone through em all.
  5. 48. Joe Jackson - A Slow Song One of many tunes from Night And Day that populate this list.
  6. The album was released in 82 as was the single in the UK so it wouldn't have made Tim's list and I also don't think it qualified for Andy's either. Its possible Andy had Stand Or Fall from the same album since it wasn't released as a single so he would/could have gone by the date the album was released which was October of 1982.
  7. 49. The Fixx - Red Skies Used to play this one up in the Colorado Mountains at the radio station. Very 80s tune.
  8. 51. Steve Winwood - Arc Of A Diver What I thought was a fresh new artist was a seasoned vet reinventing himself as a solo artist. The title track of a great album.
  9. Travis Wingfield@WingfieldNFL Daniel Jeremiah had a very interesting comment on the latest Move the Sticks pod. Said your WORST offensive lineman is more important than your BEST guy. Says more sacks are given up than earned.
  10. Tatoo You is under rated. They took tracks that they had let over from the 70s and that is why it sounds so different from most things in the early 80s. Its basically classic Stones but new and fresh at the time.
  11. 52. Tom Petty - A Woman In Love John Lennon was going to stop by the studio when they were recording the album and Tom was excited because he had never met him, he never would as Lennon was shot before the meeting happened. Always loved this tune and Benmont Tench the keyboardist for the Heartbreakers explains how their is a lot of 'open space' for air. Great explanation here. When we asked Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers keyboard player Benmont Tench about this song, he said: "I like the way the track breathes. There is a lot of space, there are a lot of places where there's only drums, bass and one guitar playing with a vocal. I like the air in that song. I like the way that the beat picks up a little and then drops down in tempo and picks up for the chorus and then drops back down for the verses. I really like that. I thought it was a brilliant song."
  12. Its been my draft philosophy forever but you can't have one-sided trades. This draft has more uncertainty so teams will value players differently so their 'could' be opportunities especially at the end of the 1st. Talent historically drops off in the 3rd so I'd always be looking to dish 3rd and 4th round picks for future higher picks. One caveat specific to this draft is that COVID and players opting out creates more uncertainty higher in the 1st so it is 'possible' that a gem could fall into our lap picking later in the 1st round.
  13. 53. Rolling Stones - Tops ... I'll make you a star I'll take you a million miles from all of this ...
  14. 54. Heart - Tell It Like It Is Originally done by Aaron Neville back in 1966. At the time it became Heart's highest charting single. Great guitar work and Ann belts it out. Strong toe tapper.
  15. 55. Moody Blues - The Voice When I first moved to Colorado I knew of The Moody Blues from the single Nights In White Satin I was basically a kid and the guy next door used to play the Moody Blues a ton and turned me onto a lot of their great tunes but the newer stuff they put out early in the 80s was so different but definitely memorable. Really liked this tune even when I didn't realize it was the same Moody Blues as Nights In White Satin.
  16. 56. Donnie Iris - Ah Leah I first heard Domick Iris when he was part of the group The Jaggerz when they had a minor hit called The Rapper which was left in a pile of 45s by an older sister. The 45 was warped like crazy but it in my tiny little stack of 45s where I got started listening to music. When Ah Leah came out my boss at the ski area was pulling a night shift at the local wind powered radio station and mentioned that Donnie Iris was the same Dominick Lerace from The Jaggerz and he was also part of the one-hit wonder group Wild Cherry Ah Leah started out as an anti-war tune but when they were struggling for lyrics Donnie's writing partner came up with the hook of Ah Leah and Iris felt it sounded like a Gregorian chant so they went with it.
  17. 57. RockPile - Teacher Teacher Nick Lowe and Dave Edmonds... smile... no need to add anything else.
  18. Going back to my original pick of O-line for the Steelers. Much too big a need IMHO and their 'should' be quality offensive linemen available when Pittsburgh picks. LINK - to tweet with chart showing every NFL team's expense on the offensive line. PIT lowest expenditure on the O-Line or any team and have the least amount of players signed next year of any team on the offensive line. If Pittsburgh goes any other position other than offensive line... well ...
  19. Honestly wish you the best possible mental health.
  20. I was looking for a reaction vid of someone who had never heard this and found one. I have not seen this one yet, watching now. Reaction vid to Lets Groove EWF
  21. Sting's wife was from Northern Ireland and they were living there at the time he wrote this song. You can 'feel' those times and that place. The 'Invisible Sun' was a hope/plea for something positive not seen in a dark landscape. This song has deep corners.
  22. 58. Earth Wind and Fire - Lets Groove This was the best selling single of all Earth Wind and Fire tunes. One of the best 'hook' lines in any song. 'Let this groove, get you to move' Simplistic perfection. Always upbeat, always positive EWF.
  23. QB Trevor Laurence - JAX QB Zach Wilson - NYJ QB Justin Fields - SF TE Kyle Pitts - ATL WR Jamar Chase - CIN WR Jaylen Waddle - MIA CB Patrick Surtain - DET QB Trey Lance - CAR LB Micah Parsons - DEN CB Jaycee Horn - DAL
