Not That Kind of Orgy

Today we’re returning to the blue theme for January. Wow, I almost wrote December there. That should show you how messed up my mind is right now.

Anyway, back to blue songs. Orgy came out in the 90s. They were an interesting group and as far as I know, only had two hit songs. One of those songs was a remake of a New Order song from the early 80s. I remember I’d liked the original a lot, thought it was really cool and when Orgy came out with their version, I loved it.

Now that I think about it, I could have used this song during the summer remake series, but there so many other songs I wanted to play that I didn’t have time. Today I’m playing the Orgy version of “Blue Monday” and if you’re curious enough to compare, you can alway check out the New Order version.

Without further ado, here’s Orgy’s “Blue Monday”. (Not to be confused with Fats Domino’s “Blue Monday”).

That’s Monday Alright

Today’s the first of 2012’s What’s Playing Wednesday posts! If you recall, we’re having color themes for every month. Well, maybe not every month. It depends on what feedback is like.

January is going to be a blue month. Mostly because I had a song stuck in my head and since it has a color in the title, I decided that would be the color I use this month.

Fats Domino is one of those musicians that reminds me of my childhood. No, I didn’t grow up in the 50’s and 60’s, but the music we grew up listening to was all about the oldies but goodies. It just so happens that this song is a personal favorite. You have to love the piano playing and Fats’s voice.

Today I give you, “Blue Monday” which is also the title of a new wave hit from the 80’s and a remake hit in the 90’s. One of those will probably show up just so we have a comparison. The songs aren’t the same, they just share a title. Kind of makes me glad other people have the same aversion to Mondays that I have.
