Sunday Music: Jane's Getting Serious


As a record producer with a ton of great albums under his belt. Jon ("Don't Call Me Rick") Astley, Pete Townsend's brother-in-law when this charted in 1987, became an '80s one-hit wonder when this quirky but fun little number snuck onto the pop charts, so everywhere in the US it was even snagged as the soundtrack for a Heinz ketchup commercial (with then-nobody Matt LeBlanc). Liked the tune, loved the music video. Back-up apes? Genius.

One of my favorite albums from the era, "Everyone loves the Pilot except the crew."

"when the oxygen mask falls out of the rack, will they let me have a moment to breathe?"

Okay, I never had seen or heard of this one. And, um, Jane. Wow.

Remember the song, have never seen the video. It is hard to get that kind of delightful drek these days.
