The Breakup Song, The Greg Kihn Band. We had broken up for good just an hour before, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh uh, uh, uh……..
Best know for the song “Jeopardy”, this catchy song is pure pop genius. Like most of my favorite songs, this song always takes me back to a specific bar my freshman year in college. This and Pat Travers “Boom Boom (Out Go The Lights)” always seemed to be playing on the juke box.
I’m a bit of a Greg Kihn fan, he had four songs that are absolute favorites of mine. He was playing locally a few weeks back, an acoustic show. Tickets were pretty cheap, so for the first time I went to a concert alone. It’s pretty close to my house, so I had a short drive, no traffic issues and was in bed by ten. Kihn has plenty of personality and I really enjoyed his stories. However his song selection was lacking. He only played two of his hits (he did do the subject song), so I did leave quite disappointed. Oh well…..
