Turn It Up!: Wilson Phillips - Release Me (Music Video)
I've already forewarned my boyfriend that when we see Wilson Phillips in concert this Saturday at Casino Rama, I will lose my shit when they sing this song. I may even cry (not for real, just fake tears to embarrass him further).
This is (without a doubt) my absolute favorite song by these girls. I mean, they don't have any bad songs, but this one is very special to me, because when I was a kid, my family and I used to go to Myrtle Beach for summer holidays and the year this song came out, I remember it being played on the radio what seemed like every hour, becoming the song of the summer. Now everytime I hear this song it reminds me of summer vacations with my family (which is odd because it's quite a melancholy song).
I guess it was the first song I had heard by them, and it was a great way to get hooked. After all these years, their continuous three part harmony from beginning to explosive end, still gives me chills. Stunning!
As I did when I was gearing up for Fiona Apple, I'll probably add a few more video's by Wilson Phillips before the show. Get ready!
PS. Every year when we would travel, there was a song that was constantly played on radio that my siblings and I loved, so I have an entire soundtrack for the summer months. It's mighty nice, and I will add more songs from said soundtrack in the following days and weeks.
What's on your summer soundtrack?!?!
