Jukebox Saturday Night for April 4th, 2015: The Donna Summer and Kelly Clarkson Edition


"On the Radio" by Donna Summer from her runaway hit album On the Radio: Greatest Hits Volumes I & II (1979)

The song was also released that year as a single, and it later appeared on her 1983 album Donna Summer: A Hot Summer Night. Summer sings the song live in this video. I'm not sure what was the context of this live performance, or if it was just part of the musical video.

And let's keep up with our Donna Summer theme and a really energetic piece ...


"This Time I Know It's For Real" by Donna Summer from her Another Place and Time album (1989)

I think this is my favorite Donna Summer video. It's quite fun to watch in its hyper-kinetic way.

She really died too young.

Finally, let's continue with our upbeat tempo "Holy Jukebox Saturday Night" Entry ...


"Heartbeat Song" by Kelly Clarkson from her Piece by Piece release (2015)

I admit it: I'm a sucker for these kinds of songs, and the video just, well, makes me feel good with all its little happy endings for all those diversely straight and gay young couples.

Oh, and just FYI, f/u M.W.H.

As the briefest of updates, I had a good three-part gym workout today, I got a haircut at the Hair Cuttery, and I'm doing my laundry as I compose this entry, or rather, the machines in the basement of this building are doing my laundry while I wait for them to be finished. As for the hair cut, I was given some good advice about trimming the sides and letting the top grow in for a while until I can do more with it overall in a couple months. However, I feared looking like a middle-aged man trying to look young with a dumb-ass haircut so I just got the usual buzz cut.

That's all for now. I think I'm going to try dinner at Ted's Bulletin on 14th Street. The online menu has some interesting things and there is bar service (i.e., one can eat dinner at the bar). Then I'll go to No. 9 and, time permitting, stop by Fox & Hound to see if Jamie is there.
