If ever there was a day to eat Cheesecake, today would be that day. Apparently it’s some sort of national Cheesecake day. In honor of this and the fact that it’s the 30 year anniversary for the Cheesecake Factory, they are running a special for today that a slice of their Cheesecake is $1.99 or something like that. I may have to visit them today.
It’s also the day before the last day of July. The wind-down. For a lot of people I know it’s been a painful month. I can relate. Next month should see and bring a sea of change. The country is recovering from a major hiccup and hopefully now that Los Angeles let out a burp yesterday (in the form of an earthquake), we should start to see a brighter day on the horizon.
Yes, I was here for the earthquake. I had friends and family calling to see how things were. It knocked over some glass in my kitchen. Fortunately the house is still standing and the studio survived without a hitch. That’s a plus.
It’s a funny thing when an earthquake like that hits. Usually it’s a little roll that shudders, then the whole ground starts to sway. Gotta be like standing on water or something. Much like surfing.
What does any of that have to do with today’s song pick? Nothing really.
G Tom Mac. Now that’s a name. Gotta be a stage name. Which then begs the question where did it originate from and why. Upon the intro of the song I thought I recognized the figure as if it were from a song from the 80’s. I think it was something like for Dr. Who or something. I’m not overly familiar with the genre, thus why I’m grabbing for straws at what it sounded familiar-esque to too me.
I will say that G Tom Mac seems to bring a genre that hasn’t quite had it’s revival yet to a more modern sound. It seems that 30 years is starting to be the cycle for genre revival. A few years back it was a 70’s resurgence. So now it’s the cusp of the 80’s. Does this mean that hair bands will experience this as well. Though the 60’s never seemed to have gone out of style. Or did they? I don’t know.
That’s where G Tom Mac has his edge. Being familiar sounding but not quite placeable. Tends to mean that it is original. I do know that it’s bouncy and hooky. I envision a large dance floor in a club with scantily clad women getting their groove on to something like this. Can’t be all bad right? Hell no. I’d be down for being in that club while this is playing.
That is the essence of having your cheesecake and eating it too right? When you can write a tune that gets butts moving and you’re there to lead it on and/or enjoy it?
Go get it now!
