The Retro Mix Video of the Week: Boxerbeat by JoBoxers- Some of you may know this predominately British group (feat. American lead singer Dig Wayne) through their only U.S. hit, 1983's "Just Got Lucky" (which has been feat. in such movies as "The 40 Year Old Virgin" starring Steve Carell and "Just My Luck" starring Lindsay Lohan). Sadly, JoBoxers didn't stay together long; breaking up before the release of their second album. The clip below is the video for their 1st U.K. hit and is the lead track on the compilation CD "Essential Boxerbeat".

How do you like Ringo's latest. I think it's a pretty solid effort from him?

Malcolm - Addicted to Love!

BTW, thanks again for stopping by my Pop Culture Blog and adding some great info! I checked out American Life and sent them a link to my posts kvetching about wanting some good classic tv reruns.

Malcolm said...

Holly: Thank you! It had been awhile since I had played anything by Pet Shop Boys so it was due time.

Mistress of the D: The only songs I've heard from Ringo's new CD is "If It's Love That You Want" and the song that you posted on your blog earlier this year. I'm not sure which one it was... it might have been "If It's Love That You Want".

Pop Art Diva: I hope that the powers that be at American Life appreciate reading the posts you did about the sorry state of classic reruns.

Bridget: Thanks!
