Radio XL, side A, track 3: “New Music promo: Soul II Soul, Oh Well, and Cyndi Lauper”

New MusicOh, KISD FM, it’s been awhile since we’ve gotten a little taste of that new music promo magic.  This was always one of my favorite things to hear, besides the actual music that is.  It was always exciting to hear what hot new music was coming my way, but I’d be hard pressed to tell you what was more exciting, finding out there was new music by a much-loved radio star (new music by Cyndi Lauper?!?!  Yes, please!), or new music by artists I’d never heard of before (Soul II Soul?  Intriguing. . .; Oh Well?  Love the name and the song sounds fun, too!).  All I knew for sure was that it gave me a clear challenge:  to make sure I captured those wondrous songs on my tapes.  Having the benefit of hindsight, I can tell you that while I was mostly successful at meeting that challenge, this particular music promo represents one of the few songs that I DIDN’T capture on my tapes, which was “Oh Well” by Oh Well.  And until I started writing this post, I’d never heard the song (besides that snippet in your music promo, that is).  But thanks to YouTube, glorious YouTube, you and I can listen to it together below.  Considering the multitude of songs I was able to record all those years ago, I can’t believe I missed out on this one.  It had to be that you didn’t play it that often, KISD FM.  It’s the only explanation.  Because after listening to it now, I have a pretty good feeling that I would have taped the hell out of that song.  But that’s all behind us.  Thanks for keeping me excited about the music on the radio even while I was listening to the music on the radio, KISD FM.
