Jukebox Saturday Night for Sept. 16th, 2017: A Pair to Remember and Wide Awake Edition

As it has been three weeks since my last Jukebox Saturday night edition -- and since I won't be able to post one next Saturday night -- I'm going to post one tonight. For this edition, I would like to feature two songs I've already featured ...

First up, a September-appropriate one ...

"September" by Earth, Wind & Fire from the group's The Best of Earth, Wind & Fire, Vol. 1 album (1978)

Interestingly, I discovered that I posted this one exactly one year ago -- or rather, 52 weeks ago (364 days) -- tonight in this Jukebox Saturday Night edition. (Of note, I had to replace the defunct link for the Rick Braun "Notorious" song.)


Next up, another great 1970s song ...

"If I Can't Have You" by Yvonne Elliman from the album Saturday Night Fever: The Original Movie Sound Track (1977)

To be clear, this is a Bee Gees song that Ms. Elliman sang for the group's Saturday Night Fever: The Original Movie Sound Track soundtrack album released with the movie in 1977. I featured it back in June 2013 in this edition of my antecedent Friday Night Musical Interlude series.

The above performance is from a 1978 edition of the old show "Top of the Pops."


To wrap up this edition of Jukebox Saturday Night, I would like to feature a song I've not previously featured ...

"Wide Awake" by Katy Perry from her album Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection (2012)

This album is a reissue of her Teenage Dream album (2010), but "Wide Awake" is one of three new songs on it. The accompanying video to "Wide Awake" (featured above) is vintage Katy Perry.

And, of course, I quite like the line from the song: "I wish I knew then / What I know now / Wouldn't dive in / Wouldn't bow down."

I like Katy Perry so much more than Taylor Swift.


OK, that's all for now. Please see my previous entry for an update.
