I'll take the cue from seminolefan and do a twist on one of my posts for this week.
Since 1970 was just featured four weeks ago, I'll feature my absolute faves from this date covering 1965 thru 1969: 9/25/65: Hang On Sloopy, Help!, The 'In' Crowd* 9/24/66: Sunshine Superman, Yellow Submarine, Eleanor Rigby*, Last Train To Clarksville, Summer In The City 9/23/67: The Letter, Light My Fire, Pleasant Valley Sunday* 9/21/68: Revolution, Slip Away, I Say A Little Prayer, On The Road Again*, Midnight Confessions, Tuesday Afternoon, Sunshine Of Your Love, Classical Gas 9/20/69: Honky Tonk Woman, Green River, Get Together, Lay Lady Lay, Hot Fun In The Summertime, That's The Way Love Is*
* Five years of absolute faves means five Pick Hits, one from each year. Ramsey Lewis, The Beatles, The Monkees, Canned Heat and Marvin Gaye win my picks... that's a pretty big variety of artists!
While I really like or love 20 songs from the 9/26/87 countdown, these 6 are my absolute faves: Lost In Emotion, When Smokey Sings, U Got The Look, Who Will You Run To*, Little Lies, Breakout
* Heart gets my Pick Hit this week. I have always really liked this song but it has just recently entered the "love zone" for me. The Wilson sister harmonies are outstanding here as is the guitar work. And... this tune is not being overplayed on radio today, unlike some of their other tunes. Love the rock instrumental ending:

NASA´s "Osiris-Rex" spacecraft is scheduled to drop a sample from the asteroid Bennu over the desert of the U.S. state of Utah on Sunday. According to NASA estimates, the capsule contains about 250 grams of debris collected from the celestial body about three years ago. It is expected to leave the probe about 102,000 kilometers above Earth.
Protected by a heat shield, the capsule is then to enter the Earth's atmosphere (at around 4:42 p.m. Central European Summer Time) and touch down about 13 minutes later with the help of parachutes within an area measuring about 58 by 14 kilometers. After landing, it will be taken to NASA laboratories in the U.S. state of Texas for examination - where some 200 scientists will then work on the sample using 60 different examination methods.
If everything goes well, it would be the first asteroid sample ever successfully brought to Earth in NASA's history - and probably the largest such sample ever taken. In 2005, the Japanese space probe "Hayabusa" landed on an asteroid. In 2010, it brought back to Earth the first soil samples ever collected from such a celestial body. There have been other flights to asteroids, but no other probe has yet returned material to Earth.
"Osiris Rex" (Origins Spectral Interpretation Resource Identification Security-Regolith Explorer) had been launched from Cape Canaveral Spaceport in September 2016 and arrived at Bennu about two years later. In October 2020, the spacecraft took a sample from the asteroid during a complicated maneuver lasting several hours - the first U.S. spacecraft to do so in space history.
And here´s my magical, dreamlike, galactic, ... edition of the week:

Time for an extra: Dominoe
For 30 years, guitarist Robert Papst from Grafingen and singer Jörg Sieber from Munich have been making music together. Among many other projects, they are the masterminds behind Dominoe - a band with a tragic history: At its beginning in 1988, there was a phenomenal hit, "Here I Am," whose refrain practically everyone can sing along with. A car manufacturer used the catchy tune for a commercial - and catapulted the previously unknown Upper Bavarian band into the charts.
"Here I Am" was created on a farm in Grafing-Bahnhof, where Papst and his friends had transformed their practice room into a modern studio. "There was a dangerous dog, but also chestnuts from the wood stove and heaps of surprise eggs," he says, "it was a wonderful time." The band owes its name to a Genesis concert; in fact, Papst was very taken with the way Phil Collins pronounced "Domino."
But unfortunately, harmony and success soon came to an end: the second single "Let´s Talk About Life" could no longer match the success of "Here I Am," and managers unabashedly exerted influence on the band. "That was soon no longer mentally feasible, at least for me," says Papst. Dominoe temporarily disbanded as early as 1990, and things didn´t move on until ten years later.
The album "The Lost Radioshow", 30 years after "Here I Am", allows a musical journey back in time to the years 1988 to 2008. It gathers 15 songs from five different Dominoe records - and thus offers an hour of honest pop rock. The album title "The Lost Radioshow" is to be taken literally: In 2008, Dominoe were supposed to re-record some of their numbers in the studio during a live session for a British radio station.
But there was a breakdown, a hard drive stopped working and most of the material was lost. The plan to complete the recordings failed due to scheduling reasons, the band members couldn´t make it to the studio together in time. The radio show never happened, and the incomplete tapes disappeared into a drawer.
Until 2018, when Papst discovered the old material by chance and, together with Sieber, decided to restore the contemporary document. And where necessary, the originals were supplemented with new recordings. For the two musicians, the discovery offered a kind of "magical leap in time." "From a distance, sometimes you just see and hear better, you get a whole new approach. Sometimes things then turn out the way they were actually meant to be years earlier," Papst tries to describe the situation. In any case, he says, he and Sieber were immediately thrilled by the quality of the sound and the fantastic atmosphere of the session at the time: "You close your eyes while listening and see the band in front of you."
According to Papst, the band´s fan base is not large, but it is international. From Rosenheim to Italy to Brazil and America - there are people everywhere who like Dominoe´s sound, "and who also kick our butts from time to time." Papst and Sieber are happy about this, of course, but they don´t want to be pushed into new deeds: they only pick up the mic and guitar again "when the mood strikes". Or when old recordings suddenly turn up that simply sweep them off their feet.

One of the skinniest guys to hit the Top 40 and one of the plumpest guys to hit the Top 40 get This Week's Pick Hits. If you ever watch some of David' Bowie's videos from the 70s, he almost looks anorexic (he was visibly exhausted after a 5-minute performance of "Stay" on the the "Dinah!" show (hosted by Dinah Shore... Bowie on Dinah!?!?). Meanwhile, Barry's size helped make him an instantly recognizable figure... as did his deep, deep voice. Since dth1971 has been complaining elsewhere about "Ecstasy" always being edited on AT40, here's the full version :
BONUS: Here's Bowie as he appeared on Dinah Shore's show. I love the segues in between camera shots:

Kaiser Wiesn 2023
The Vienna Wiesn Festival is a popular festival and has been held annually on the Kaiserwiese in the Vienna Prater since 2011. For 18 days from the end of September to mid-October, numerous events are offered to visitors. Among the guests of the festival are also numerous celebrities from business, politics, art and culture. The focus is on Austrian customs and traditions, Austrian cuisine and folk music. In 2023, Vienna´s largest Oktoberfest will take place from 9/21 to 10/8 on the Kaiserwiese in the Prater. Guests at the Wiesn-Fest can enjoy a total of three marquees and five alpine pastures, as well as the Wiesn-Fest village for celebrating and strolling. Since its inception, the venue of the event has been the Kaiserwiese in the Vienna Prater at the foot of the Ferris wheel.
And here´s my "festival"-edition:
Jermaine Jackson - Dynamite Prince & The Revolution - Let´s Go Crazy Scandal Featuring Patty Smyth - The Warrior Sheena Easton - Strut Twisted Sister - We´re Not Gonna Take it
Time for an extra: Nik Kershaw
"I Won´t Let The Sun Go Down On Me" has a strange history. It was Nik Kershaw´s first single in 1983 - and it was a flop. It wasn´t until Nik Kershaw had a worldwide hit with "Wouldn´t It Be Good" in 1984 that the single was re-released and now "I Won´t Let The Sun Go Down On Me" became a hit as well. In fact, the single was now Nik Kershaw´s biggest commercial success.
Nik Kershaw never tired of emphasizing that the lyrics were about the Cold War. The sun he did not want to set, thus meant the bomb that should not fall on his head. The original video from 1983 - produced in Maidstone in Kent, UK - was replaced by a video with live inserts in 1984. The second video has a higher quality production throughout, but Nik Kershaw had little time for filming due to radio dates throughout Europe. He wasn´t happy with the video later either, saying you could see the hectic nature of the production. Funny: the establishment in England has always been symbolized by old men with bowler hats on their heads, so Nik Kershaw sharpened the message of the hit to a generation conflict: young people should please take responsibility, assert themselves against the old men and make peace.
That the chorus of "I Won´t Let The Sun Go Down On Me" sounds like a folk song is no coincidence, the song was written as a protest song in a folk music version. But the production company didn´t have a suitable folk interpreter under contract, they needed a song for the young Nik Kershaw at the same time and therefore asked him to use the material for a pop song.
from my musical category "daydreamer" My motto: "Not always the often heard hits.
"Music was my first love and it will be my last ... ´cause in this world of troubles my music pulls me through."

While I really like or love 23 songs from the 10/13/79 countdown, these 10 are my absolute faves: Sail On, My Sharona, Pop Muzik, After The Love Has Gone, Don't Bring Me Down, Heartache Tonight, Spooky, Hold On*, Gotta Serve Somebody, Driver's Seat
Since we just heard an '86 countdown 4 weeks ago, and I just reviewed an '89 countdown a few weeks ago...
While I really like or love 22 songs from the 10/8/88 countdown, these 7 are my absolute faves: I Hate Myself For Loving You, What's On Your Mind (Pure Energy), Don't Know What You Got ('Til It's Gone), Desire, Perfect World, Dance Little Sister*, When It's Love
* One of my very first feature picks was Ian Gomm's "Hold On", and I am featuring it again this week. It's a perfect pop nugget from late '79 but somehow only peaked at #18. Meanwhile, "Dance Little Sister" should have peaked way higher than #30. Terrence Trent D'Arby is almost forgotten about today but he had three great hits from his '88 album:

The long night of museums
Around 700 museums, cultural institutions and galleries throughout Austria open their doors from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. With just one ticket, all participating museums can be visited that evening. The concept has proven itself for many years and is starting this year for the 23rd time. Visitors have numerous opportunities to marvel at the unseen, experience special exhibitions and guided tours, and take part in entertaining activities. The ticket is also valid as a ticket for all "Long Night" shuttle buses throughout Austria and even as a ticket for all public transportation in Vienna.
So, here´s my "night"-edition:
Billy Ocean - Love Zone Daryl Hall - Dreamtime Janet Jackson - When I Think Of You Loverboy - Heaven In Your Eyes Peter Gabriel - In Your Eyes
Time for an extra: Billy Ocean
Billy Ocean´s "Love Really Hurts Without You" reached #22 on the Billboard Hot 100 back in 1976. In November of 1986 a remixed version of this song had a single release which briefly charted in the UK at #81 and spent one week on the Netherlands Single Top 100 in March of 1987. On Belgium´s Flemish chart the 1986 mix of "Love Really Hurts Without You ..." got as high as #21 in January 1987:
from my musical category "daydreamer" My motto: "Not always the often heard hits.
While I really like or love 31 songs from the 10/16/76 countdown, I crank these 10 tunes all the way up to 11: Disco Duck++, Lowdown, Devil Woman, Shake Your Booty, Magic Man, Love So Right, Don't Fear The Reaper, The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald, Getaway+, The Rubberband Man
While I really like or love 30 songs from the 10/16/82 countdown, I crank these 12 tunes all the way up to 11: Abracadabra, I Keep Forgettin' (Every Time You're Near), You Can Do Magic, Blue Eyes, Hold On, The One You Love, New World Man, Love Come Down+, You Dropped A Bomb On Me, Southern Cross, Steppin' Out, Pressure
This Week's Shooda Dun Betr Picks are by Earth Wind & Fire and Evelyn "Champagne" King (but she wasn't using "Champagne" in 1982). "Getaway" almost made it to the Top 10 but it should have been a Top 5 tune. It is so joyful that I am featuring the 12" Funky Purrfection clip here. I'm also featuring the full version of "Love Come Down" as it has a way cool groove. Eat your heart out, seminolefan :
Now time for my very irregular bonus pick for both listenerwants2know and seminolefan ... How could I not feature "Disco Duck" during its lone week at #1? So here's a radio-only promo version that combines Part 1 (vocal version) with Part 2 (instrumental version). If you have never listened to the instrumental section, you will not be disappointed :
