Thanks. Next time I need to convince my kid to RVA, I'll tell her they play weird Al at all the stores.

Peaches & Herb  "Shake Your Groove Thing"

TIL
Peaches & Herb are an American vocalist duo. Herb Fame (born October 1, 1942) has remained a constant as "Herb" since the duo was created in 1966; seven different women have filled the role of "Peaches", most notably Francine "Peaches" Hurd Barker (April 28, 1947 August 13, 2005), the original "Peaches" who lent her nickname to the duo, and Linda Greene, the third "Peaches" who appeared on the duo's biggest hits "Shake Your Groove Thing" (1978) and "Reunited" (1979).

Do you think Herb will ever employ this Peaches?

Whole Foods:

The Undertones-Teenage Kicks
Spoon- Do You
Jenny Lewis- Breakin Up

Giant:

Feist-one of her songs they always play
Thomas Dolby- She Blinded Me With Science*

*It's been 33+ years, but I can finally listen to this song again. My hunchback freshman college roommate played the Thomas Dolby album all the freaking time, and there's only so much you can take of that in a lifetime.

**Note to middle aged white guy who was trying to dance to this song while pushing his cart...you wife was not amused, and neither was I.
