Song of the Day - Electric Dreams - Giorgio Moroder, with Philip Oakley

That's the birthday boy on the right

Today's song is a special dedication to my pal, Blanche, who is celebrating his birthday today.  Electric Dreams is one of his all time favorite songs and every once in awhile I'll hear him say in a bar that he wishes the deejay would play it.  There was one occasional that I actually wrote about Blanche and this song once...

A couple of summers ago, Blanche, Dita, myself and our pal Rose from Florida had all gone into the city to go on the Sea Tea, a weekly Sunday night party boat, to have some fun, and have fun we did.  Towards the end of the night, they started playing music from the good old days and suddenly this song came on.  Well, Blanche got so excited, as you might imagine, and he made us all dance (and sing) along to the song together, and the giddiness was just too much!  If you want to check out the whole story, read Here's to Good Friends.

In the meantime, check out Electric Dreams...

Oh, and Happy Birthday Blanche!
