Two From ZZ Top

In the '70s, ZZTop were a blues based rock band led by three bearded rebel guys. In the '80s, they revved up the guitar, added some synth, and put out some high octane rock, such as "Legs," off of their 1983 album, Eliminator.

Here's another: "Rough Boy" off of 1984's Afterburner album. Check out the space age car wash, and the very '80s shuttle.

Need to get back to posting. How about some great '80s songs and memories. Here's one from the early '80s... 

Steve Miller Band, "Abracadabra"

I heat up, I can't cool down
You got me spinnin' 'round and 'round
'Round and 'round and 'round it goes
Where it stops, nobody knows

Every time you call my name
I heat up like a burnin' flame
Burnin' flame, full of desire
Kiss me, baby, let the fire get higher

I want to reach out and grab ya

Abra-abracadabra, abracadabra
