Another blog, another revival of my old favorite feature, Turn Up Your Speakes!
Years ago (pre-YouTube) at work, I believe (the actual story has gotten fuzzy over the years) someone gave me a flash drive with a video file on it and there was a post-it with "Turn up your speakes" written in pencil stuck to the drive. I wish I had saved the post-it but I have always remembered the words "Turn up your speakes" and they have lived on via posts on various blogs over the years.
At one point, I tried to do these every Friday. I think I will do them just as I feel like it moving forward. I can't maintain a schedule of blogging/podcasting/creating/etc. without the schedule sucking the fun out of things.
With that intro out of the way, our first Turn Up Your Speakes at Jason Writes Here is from 1980, "Take Your Time (Do It Right) by S.O.S. Band. In fact, this song peaked at number 3 on August 16, 1980. Wikipedia lists the genre as post-disco although the song sounds fairly disco to me!
I heard it this morning for the first time in a long time and I was surprised at how well I remembered it and how good a song it is. It's a perfect way to start the weekend so Turn Up Your Speakes and enjoy!
