saturday 9





On the Radio

1) The action begins when a letter falls out of the pocket of a brown overcoat. What color is your coat? I have several coats--actually, my bestie says I have more coats than anyone she knows--I say I want options!

2) The lyrics ask if it "kinda strikes you sad when you hear our song." We don't want to be sad this Saturday, so we're asking what song makes you happy. Uptown Funk and Can't Stop The Feeling

3) Right before this song hit the charts, Donna Summer hit the cover of Newsweek. Are there any magazines in your home now? If yes, who is on the cover? Oprah is on the cover

4) Donna wrote the lyrics to this song, while producer Giorgio Moroder wrote the tune. Moroder is known as "the father of disco." Is disco a genre you enjoy? funnily enough, I adore disco now but couldn't stand it when it was popular

5) This song got additional airplay throughout the 1980s because the game show The Price Is Right played it every time a contestant won a stereo. Today, the most popular audio equipment sold at Best Buy is a sound bar to improve the quality of TV audio. Have you added a sound bar or sound system to your TV? no

6) Moroder has won two Academy Awards for Best Song. The first was for "Flashdance ... What a Feeling" from Flashdance and the second was for "Take My Breath Away" from Top Gun. Do you have a favorite movie soundtrack? I have a couple of favorites: Phenomenon and Michael which both star John Travolta

7) He grew up in Ortsei, Italy. Located in Northern Italy, the Ortsei economy is fueled by tourists who ski in winter, hike in summer and shop for woodcarvings all year around. Do out-of-towners find their way to your hometown more often in summer or winter? more often in the winter because of the excellent snowmobile trail system

8) Kourtney Kardashian was born in 1979, the year this record was a hit. Keeping Up with the Kardashians has been on since 2007. Have you ever seen it?
I have seen it

9) Random question -- When getting dressed in the morning, what's the second item of clothing you put on? socks if it's sock weather

  1. I have to wonder what's considered sock weather up yonder in the north. Me, I wear socks all year long. Can't stand to have my feet uncovered.

  2. I am the same as Country Dew about socks. I have ugly feet. Socks are my third item if I am counting my under garments...which I did.

  3. It seems like a number of Saturday 9ers like Uptown Funk. Every time I hear it it reminds me of a dance mashup "Old Movie Stars Dance to Uptown Funk"
