Song of the Day - Showing Out (Get Fresh At the Weekend) - Mel & Kim

Today's "Song of the Day" is an 80's celebration of the weekend, and to this day the chorus still plays in my head when I think of any upcoming weekend. Melanie & Kim Appleby were sisters from England who rocked dance floors for a couple of years in the mid-eighties with their hit album, "F.L.M." Immediately after this anthem came "Respectable," another dance smash that became an even bigger hit than "Showing Out."

Upon a little research for this post, I discovered some sad news that I had never heard before. Just about four years into their success, Melanie passed away from pneumonia in 1990.  The illness was related to spinal cancer she had contracted during the height of their success. It's no wonder they disappeared after "F.L.M." Rest in Peace Mel!

For the rest of us, it's spring and it's Friday, so get fresh at the weekend!
