TwoFer Tuesday

Once upon a time this radio AM/FM slide
was ubiquitous; now, I had to search
high and low and only found one on the
forgotten radio on a shelf out on the patio.
In the spirit of Rocktober and cheesy-ness in music overall, I give you the TwoFer. I recall TwoFer Tuesdays from back in the day when I would listen to the radio and wasn't able to carry over 5,000 songs with me in my pocket at all times. This led to ThreeFer Thursday and that was the moment it all jumped the shark, but TwoFers will always have a place in my heart.

At dinner one evening with my family, a song came on the radio, a good old song from the 70s or 80s, one that was oft played on a TT, always followed by another song. There were a few of these songs I grew up with and I realize that they may be more regional than standard, but I can think of a few that get me going:

Journey: Feeling That Way & Anytime

Queen: We Will Rock You & We Are the Champions

Led Zeppelin: Living Loving Maid & Heartbreaker

What are your TwoFers?

  1. David Lee on Lazer 103??? Stirs up soooo many emotions with just these songs that are the peas and carrots of my pavlovian music memory (is that a word?). Always hearing one and expecting the other.
