Jukebox Saturday Night for Feb. 10th, 2018: The Mind and Feelings Edition

Let's start with a really nice Big Band era piece ...

"If You Ever Change Your Mind" by Artie Shaw and His Orchestra with Helen Forrest providing vocals (1939)

I love this kind of music. Sometimes I think I lived another life that ended in World War II somewhere in a Pacific battle.

That aside, this song was featured in Bryan Wright's most recent Shellac Stack program (No. 109).


Next up, an interesting New Agey instrumental …

"The Way I Feel" by Quintana and Speer from their album Shades of Shadow (1992)

I'm uncertain about the date -- since Shadows of Shadow appears to have been re-released in 2008. I also couldn't find who is exactly Quintana -- Leroy or Larry.


And we'll end with something Saturday night upbeat ...

"Can't Stop the Feeling!" by Justin Timberlake on the Trolls: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack album (2016)

The song really should be called "Dance, Dance, Dance!" This particular YouTube version features a wonderful mashup of 66 movie dance scenes stretching back to the 1930s.

Here is the official video version:

This was as a mega-hit for Justin Timberlake -- reaching number 1 in multiple countries including here in the United States where it started out at the very top of the Billboard Hot 100 (the 26th such song to do so in the chart's history and Timberlake's fifth number 1 song), or so sayeth the Keeper of All Knowledge.

OK, that's all for now. Because it is so close to midnight, and I'm just not going to be able to post a meaningful Saturday Evening Post entry, I'm going to skip it. Instead, my plan is to post another entry after midnight.
