Sunday Rewind has been absent from the blog for awhile, so I think I'll be bringing it back when the mood strikes.
Today it's Simply Red. Simply Red is a band that I've loved since 1986 and not just because the lead singer and I basically have the same hair. Most of their well-known songs are covers and that's fine with me. The band is no longer a band, but in truth, it's been Mick Hucknall and a revolving door of musicians since the '90s. Now Hucknall is the singer for the re-formed Faces (Rod Stewart's old band) and owns a vineyard and has owned a restaurant with Johnny Depp, Sean Penn, and John Malkovich (because sure, why not?).
Let's have some music.
Here's an acoustic "Holding Back the Years."
"Something Got Me Started" live.
And their first hit, "Money's Too Tight to Mention," which is my favorite song about being broke that mentions Reaganomics and not being able to qualify for unemployment. If I had a band I would totally cover this song.
