Yes Folks we have something special for you today! Our own Andrew Ragazzo has released an epic compilation of himself singing ’80s songs. Andy has long been a proponent of ’80s music and anyone who has heard him passionately sing “Eye of the Tiger” can attest to his virtuousity. Michael Buczkowski said, “It was like a bolt of lightning hit me in crotch.”
Andy Sings The ’80s
Ragazzo had been planning this album for ages he says, but he wanted to surprise everyone with it’s sudden release. Andy decided to use his time off from Canisius to put the finishing touches, cleverly telling everyone around him that he’s: “bored… and there’s nothing to do.”
Little known to the world is the fact that Andy had his musical start long before his solo ’80s album with The E-Board Five in 1972. A short lived group due to controversy when 6th member Chris Shea was left out of the group because band leader Justin decided, “Five was just more catchy.”
But Andrew had bigger ambitions, and they have now manifested themselves into this amazing album. Andrew proclaims, “It took 37 years, but I’m back in the game Bitches!” right before ripping his shirt off (his second for this interview) and shredding on the air guitar in a manner reminiscent of Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure.
I would provide you with some samples of Andy’s music but I don’t have legal permission, and as you may or may not know he is a friend of Chuck Norris – (who you don’t look for: he finds you) so you’ll have to buy the album ONLY at your local Media Play, with whom Andy signed an exclusive distributing contract in 1996.
One thing that can be said of Andy is that he doesn’t forget the little people, his album features multiple dedications and duets to and with friends such as: “Black Velvet (featuring Garrett Weinholtz)”; and “I Touch Myself (featuring Michel Brind’Amour)”; and my personal favorite: “Don’t Stop Believing (dedicated to yours truely)”.
If I can make any final statements about this album I will have to use the inspired words of Garrett Weinholtz, “ppppppppppfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff
