In the words of Moby Grape… listen, my friends! Yes, it’s the (hopefully) monthly playlist presented by George’s Journal just for you good people.

There may be one or two classics to be found here dotted in among different tunes you’re unfamiliar with or have never heard before – or, of course, you may’ve heard them all before. All the same, why not sit back, listen away and enjoy…

¹ As featured in Disney’s animated classic The Rescuers (1977)

² From the original Wonder Woman herself, Lynda Carter’s song-and-dance TV special Encore!, broadcast by US network CBS in September 1980 

³ Memorable as the theme from ITV’s Michael Elphick/ Neil Morrissey-starring, Brum-set drama series Boon (1986-95) 

4 The cracking tune that’s also memorable for Roy Orbison’s slightly later version (although actually recorded before Lauper’s in ’87, it wasn’t released until ’92, its video featuring then hot Hollywood starlets Jason Priestly and Jennifer Connelly); Orbison’s effort didn’t chart in the States while Lauper’s hit #6 there, but did so in the UK where it made it to #7, matching Lauper’s UK chart high.
