  1. At first I thought no way but after speaking to a Steeler fan she convinced me and Najee looks amazing if he's available. He'd fill a huge hole. I think O-Line would be a much better long-term building block but the FO might be looking at the D and the weapons around Ben and think this is a window. You don't build up a defense like that and have a vet QB with those WRs and a big void at RB with a talent like Harris 'possibly' for the taking and not go for it, so I'm thinking it very well could be RB in the first.
  2. 75. Todd Rungren - Bang The Drum All Day An obvious pandering gesture to @Binkythedoormat as I was going to put Grover Washington Jr. here with - Just The Two Of Us I had to cut out a lot of 'good' tunes but loved playing Bang The Drum All Day. Fun spin. Oh forgot to add, that'll be a dollar Bink.
  3. PFF Mike Renner with over 57,000 followers. Pete Smith re-tweet with over 200k followers. Mike Renner Tweet The details are worse than what was and has been shared by many. Honestly hope the best for your mental health RockAction.
  4. 76. Dire Straits - Tunnel Of Love The song begins with 'The Carousel Waltz' written by Rodgers and Hammerstein before launching into an autobiographical composition of Knopfler's visit to Spanish City fairground in Whitely Bay. Mark wrote about that visit as it was allegedly where he decided to go into the music industry. As Rodgers and Hammerstein wrote the waltz it is only one of three Dire Straits songs that were not soley written by Knopfler.
  5. 77. Talking Heads - Cross Eyed and Painless David Byrne and Brian Eno must have been channeling the Bard when they wrote this song. The Heads arrived just like the Enola Gay, quiet and unnoticed till the payload exploded. Love Jeff Bridges take on how the Talking Heads blew his mind. He was asked about Pulp Fiction and the only analogy he could find was with music and the Talking Heads.

  6. Sapp failed his drug test due to pot smoking. He failed THEE intelligent test. He got fired from ESPN for shenanigans so missed important memos from the universe. Micah was a bully, ok. Their are bullies and then their is this: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Justine@LarimerJustine Things Micah Parsons can control. Wrestling teammates down and simulating a humping action while on top of them. Placing his penis in their faces while simulating ejaculation. Placing his penis on and in their buttocks. Stop excusing sexual assault. #NFLDraft #NFLDraft2021
  7. I agree that it kicked off a renaissance of big band swing bands. Those bands are still going strong. Here is a uber ridiculous fantastic version of Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen that will blow your doors off. Its one of my all-time favorite songs EVA. I had to leave off a tune from Van Halen that would fit in this genre. Big Bad  Bill I used to play this tune but couldn't play anything from Jumpin' Jive because it didn't fit our format.
  8. So he was told that an NFL team moved-up to the #3 spot in the draft and has still not made up their mind as to what they will do with that pick? If anyone actually believes that ...
  9. 78. Joe Jackson - Jumpin' Jive (entire album) Talk about musical range, dexterity, and knowledge. Anyone who has heard Jumpin' Jive knows you cannot break out individual tunes as pretty much every tune is awesome. Joe had to beg his record company to put this out because they knew it wouldn't sell but Joe put a fresh and vivacious spin on classic tunes that fits any era. If you have not heard this album do yourself a favor and listen to the whole thing.
  10. 79. U2 - I Fall Down / I Will Follow This was 'very early' in the career of U2 with a two-fer of tunes that many not be familiar with. They were not polished as evidenced by hysterical photos shown on the Graham Norton talk show. Go to the 11:20 mark of THIS VIDEO Hysterical look aside both early tunes are really good.
  11. 80. Marshall Crenshaw - Cynical Girl / Mary Anne The next three will be multiples. I used to play Crenshaw back in my DJ days and like both of these stripped down raw 50 sounding tunes.
  12. Some things he's done that seem/sound so simple have well timed/placed Swiss watch craftsmanship.
  13. Not sure if anyone has stumbled upon this guy but he has a great Browns pod and a few hours ago had Jake Burns on who is someone everyone should know. Not a hot take, pretty well reasoned. Jake has some very 'tempered expectations on both Grant Delpit and Greedy Williams who he says could be on the bubble. Go to the 16:30 mark for his take on Greedy. LINK
  14. 81. Paul McCartney - Take It Away Calling @Krista to do a write up. All I got is I like this tune and actually miss Linda's backup vocals.
  15. 82. Ronnie Milsap - I Wouldn't Have Missed It For The World Another cross over country tune that takes me back to the time as a teenager in high school working as a bus boy with the juke box playing a sound track for the early 80s.
  16. Moots Custom made for you and your needs. I hadn't checked on prices, lol. Way above the price range but pretty cool to check out these guys. Used to go there back in the 80s when they were just getting started. Guess the word has gotten out since the cost for a custom made bike is what you'd expect to pay for top quality.
  17. 83. Prince - Little Red Corvette It was five years ago today that Prince passed away so this was moved far up the list to honor his day.🙏 Actually yesterday was the anniversary of Price's passing.
  18. 84. Glenn Frey - The One You Love Sax was over used during the 80s but great use/fit/hook on this tune.
  19. Wasn't really interested in the prospect but saw some things not mentioned in the thread. ================================ https://www.palmbeachpost.com/story/sports/nfl/2021/04/15/penn-states-micah-parsons-has-past-make-nfl-teams-pause/7221446002/ ... suspended and accused of trying to incite a riot. ... teammate Isaiah Humphries accused him of leading a hazing incident that triggered a lawsuit against the university. ================================= The 'hazing' incident consisted of Micah telling Humphries that 'this' (the locker room) was a prison and he was their beeyach as he along with other physically held down players and 'humped them'. Yeah. Ah, no surprise I've heard the Dolphins have removed him from their draft list for off-field concerns.
  20. I used to live with a girl from New Zealand so its all coming together on why I LOVE this song so much. She must have played it and it went over my head but Split Enz are/were a NZ group and in this song one of the lines is: Aotearoa Rugged individual Glisten like a pearl At the bottom of the world Aotearoa is the native Māori name for New Zealand. The Māori were some of the most fearsome indigenous people on the planet. The NZ ruby team is world renown for being the all-time best and they begin every match with their famous haka (forgot to add that the haka was a pre-war ritual used by the Māori to intimidate whoever they were at war with and it was so effective that many times the opponent would give up or run away.) I've dominated my FF league for decades and after winning multiple championships used to post vids of the famous NZ All Black haka to symbolize sheer dominance. It all goes back to that gorgeous girl from NZ who looked like Jacqueline Bisset
  21. 85. Split Enz - 6 Months in a Leaky Boat Have to confess a pleasant surprise, I had no idea Split Enz did this tune. I really like this song.
  22. 86. Terri Gibbs - Somebody's Knockn' Time for some country. I must have heard this song on the jukebox where I worked as a teenager in high school. I've got a handful of cross over country tunes and I really like this one. One of two sightless artists to make the list.
  23. I've kept the same rules to include everything because I go second after the top-100 are gone. Also noted in this list I make one exception and include an artist from September of 80 and I'll explain that one when we get to it.
