Song of the Day: “The Last Song on Side B”

It’s Monday, and thanks to advocacy from fellow author Alex Dupnik, the Marky Mark marathon continues.

Accumulated Cassette Tapes (in progress)

Today’s song of the day is noteworthy a historical curiosity for two reasons: first, that “The Last Song on Side B” was, literally, the last song on the tape. You would have to flip over the cassette on your boom box to go back and hear “Music for the People” and “Good Vibrations”. Second, the Funky Bunch made music at a time when commercially barnstorming albums had so much filler that you could brazenly include a song with this title and not care, nor have it affect your album’s sales.
