So it’s absolutely no secret that I have a little fascination with 80′s music but I do listen to current music too. Since moving to LA, I spend a lot of time in my car listening to the radio. I kind of love it because not only do I get the chance to hear new music but I have gotten reacquainted with a bunch of my old favorites. My mind was blown yesterday to hear a combination of the old and new with the new song by Eminem called “Bezerk” (link has audio only)!
For those of you that don’t recognize the heavy guitar riff sample, it’s Billy Squier “The Stroke”. I’ve Facebooked and Tweeted many times about how LA radio loves its classic rock. I’ll admit that Billy is one of the many artists of my youth that often get to act as my radio back-up while I sing car karaoke (thank goodness no one can hear me).
I know that I don’t usually post on Thursdays but I heard this mind-melding combination of 80′s and current music that I had to pay homage to Billy Squier today. Here’s a video for “The Stroke” that I hope you enjoy:
Be honest, did you know Billy Squier or is the Eminem song the first you’ve ever heard of him? I won’t judge.
