Coheed and Cambria give Rick Springfield’s Jessie’s Girl a sequel
August 21st, 2020 under Rick Springfield. [ Comments: none ]


It has been almost 40 years since Rick Springfield professed his love for Jessie’s Girl. In all of that time, not only have we wondered who she is, but we also wanted to know if the Rocker got his friend’s loved?

Well, the band Coheed and Cambria wondered the same thing, so they wrote a song about it. In their follow-up, they give it a Meat Loaf Paradise in the Dashboard Light twist. However, the best part is they got Springfield to sing his own verse and star in the music video. Proving that he is still just as sexy now as he was when he was pursuing Jessie’s Girl in 1981. Heck, he looks even better.

When it comes to the 2020 tune, it is just as fun as the original. I never heard of this band before, but I plan to spend the day to listening to their other songs. If you need me, then call me at the number the provided in the video. You know, 867-5309.

If you could write a sequel to any song, what would it be?

Rick Springfield reworks Love Somebody to Glove Somebody
April 20th, 2020 under Rick Springfield. [ Comments: none ]


Rick Springfield recently changed up Human Touch to No Human Touch to make it relevant for coronavirus, and it was a huge hit. Therefore, he is following it up with another song. He reworked his hit song Love Somebody from his movie Hard To Hold to something that makes it hard to hold thing, glove. Now, we will know the tune as Glove Somebody with lyrics to match.

Incredibly, it works. I wonder what is next, Don’t Touch the Strangers, Please Walk Away, Jessie’s Test, or State of the World?

ack in 1983, Rick Springfield told us we all need the Human Touch. In 2020, you don’t dare say that because of Coronavirus. Therefore, he rewrote his tune to make it appropriate for today’s world.

Since we all need to sing and laugh, he posted his version of We Don’t Need the Human Touch on Instagram. I cannot say it is better than the original. What I can say is that it is exactly what we all need!

If you never heard the catchy tune that was ahead of its time, then click here!

Rick Springfield made up Jessie from Jessie’s girl
September 24th, 2019 under AXS, Rick Springfield. [ Comments: none ]


Rick Springfield became an International sensation thanks to his song Jessie’s Girl in 1981. The song has become one that urban legends are made of. We want to know who is Jessie and more importantly who is his girlfriend that the singer wants to find a woman like that.

This Thursday at 8:30p on AXS’s Mix Tape, the Rocker gives us the true story behind the song. He says, “I started going to this stained glass place in Pasadena. And the reason I kept going was because there was this girl there that was burning hot and she had a boyfriend, his name was Gary, and she didn’t want anything to do with me. So I took my sexual angst home and wrote a song about her. I tried ‘Gary’s Girl,’ but it didn’t ring. I actually had this original lyric sheet and I changed it to ‘Randy’s Girl.’ I’d actually started writing ‘Randy is a friend,’ and halfway through that line I thought you know what… no. So this name Jessie popped up in my head. I loved it, I went full tilt on the writing and recording thing.”

Now we know, Jessie is really Gary and Springfield did not get the girl. But he did he get a huge hit out of it. Good thing he didn’t believe in don’t talk to strangers because if he did, then he would not have met Gary and his girlfriend. Which means he would never have had this song and he never would have the career he has had. We would be like Rick Springfield who?

Next week on Mix Tape, Don McLean talks about the day the music died. In other words, what Buddy Holly meant to him.

BTWF: Rick Springfield in Zoot
May 14th, 2019 under Before They Were Famous, Rick Springfield. [ Comments: none ]


Before Rick Springfield had several #1 hits on his own, he was the guitarist in the band Zoot. How trippy is it to see the then 20-year-old play guitar the same way in 1970 as he does today? I totally recognized his distinctive arm movement when just that body part of his was on camera. What does that say about me? That I have seen him perform way too many times in concert and in the movie Hard to Hold.
