guest dj CM checks in


To continue, from guest DJ CM, tunes o' the day: Then, a bit of bombast with One Hundred Years From Now by Dennis DeYoung and Eric Lapointe. This one sounds like something from Les Miserables. Some of the lyrics are in English, so you have some idea of the story. OMG! Too funny! Turns out Dennis DeYoung was Styx! That explains the bombast. Apparently this is the title track from his latest solo release (currently released in Canada only).

I, for one, wonder how the guy from Chicago who was Styx starting in the 60s gets together with a guy from Quebec born in the late 60s. Worth looking at all this to find out.

Hey, good song! Now I'm off to work and Jim gets to stay home and have fun!

CM, you should be using Gary's picture of your feet ... :-D

What a cool song. DeYoung's voice is still as distinctive as ever, isn't it?

We're both retired. But I work part time now. Jim also worked part time till he developed heart problems. He's doing much better now, but still gets to stay home! Darnit! :) (I do put him to work around the house, though! ha!)
