Music Monday: Lights Out

My ears perked up when I heard my daughter play Lights Out by Virginia to Vegas. I liked the melody, and the tune reminded me of a song I used to listen to a long time ago.

I enjoy the way that the singer has melded his song to something I used to listen to as a teen.

My daughter, of course, had never heard of Rockwell’s song Somebody’s Watching Me and didn’t see the connection until I pointed it out to her.

Do you enjoy the fusion of this older song with a new?

  1. I really liked Rockwell’s song and was a bit disappointed that there didn’t seem to be any more from him. Another from the same time was Phil Collins with Phil Bailey – Easy Lover – again with no obvious follow up 😦 That Lights Out number sounds nice I’ll give it a couple more listens 🙂 Of course, the Lights Out track I know best is the one by UFO – possibly a bit loud for this time of night so I didn’t include a link 😉


  2. Years ago one of our nieces was visiting … she commented on a Janet Jackson song she liked …. She looked confused when I mentioned the guitar section was from a 1970s song .. and then I played her the song. … but I did like the way Janet Jackson used it.
