Here’s a sweet 45 I totally bought because of nostalgia. Sonic Boom in Toronto charged me $0.99. Deal!
Coleman Wilde – It Doesn’t Matter (7″)
Back in January, I showed off a few cassette singles that I still have kicking around here. One of them was this very same song, so now I own it on 45 and cassette single!
Why? It’s a great song. If you grew up here in Canada, you probably remember it as a beer commercial. Yup, it was written by a couple of commercial/jingle songwriters. There wasn’t ever an album for it, but a little internet searching shows it being on CD as well, on a hockey compilation called Contact 3 – The Third Period. I might have to see if I can find that one, I’d love to have this song on CD too (3 formats!)
Here, go hear the awesomeness yourself:
Today’s slice of hilarious nostalgia is simultaneous with Mike’s post! You definitely need to be reading every one of his posts right here. UPDATE: Geoff over at the excellent 1001albumsin10years site threw his hat into the cassette single ring too! Read it right here!
Remember them? I used to have quite a few of them, and honestly thought they were still here. Sadly, an extensive search of the music library has only turned up a few. I know there was one for Kim Mitchell’s Rock And Roll Duty, for example, but no luck finding it… Anyway, I assume these to be the only remaining items left. If I find more, I’ll post them too, but I think this is it…
Brace yourselves, there’s some 80s greatness in here!
