Watch: Rick Springfield Performs Jessie's Girl In Penn Station
There's never been a shortage of hidden talent roaming around New York City's subways. Remember that guy who gave a moving performance of Adele's "Someone Like You" at 86th Street? Or that band, Atomic Tom, and their iPhone app song that went viral after it was showcased on the B train?

But if the guy singing a spot-on rendition of "Jessie's Girl" in Penn Station sounded a bit too much like Rick Springfield, that's because it actually was actually him. (The crowds of people holding up their cell phones may well have been a tip-off.)

The artist behind the 1981 hit was singing some old favorites around New York City subways to promote his new album, "Songs for the End of the World," Gothamist reports.

Springfield didn't just play the one tune in Penn Station, though; he also sang "I Hate Myself" in Times Square and carted his guitar along

Even our most casual readers seem to know that we are big fans of Dan Fogler at Wamg. I love chatting with the man and our interviews always seem to go off topic in the best possible way. I recently got the chance to talk with him about a slew of projects he is working on.

Take Me Home Tonight Soundtrack

The Take Me Home Tonight soundtrack. Ooh, it was like The Scarlet Pimpernel. Sort of. This ’80s-set ensemble comedy for ‘young people’ was shot back in 2007 before being left to languish on the shelf, then saved from the guillotine of no-release oblivion by Ryan Kavanaugh, the masked baronet of Relativity Media. Hurrah! A pity though that Eddie Money doesn’t seem to have survived the ordeal. His 1986 hit which gives the movie its title is conspicuously absent from this soundtrack, despite having cropped up in the trailer.

Not that there is any shortage of ’80s radio monsters here. This is a paean to pop music’s past, an extended celebration of those hook-laden hits which detractors would rush to peg as lowest common denominator, but which equally can deliver high levels of idiot-grin enjoyment for those willing to check their musical ego at the door. An obvious comparison is to

'Take Me Home Tonight' Parties With Duran Duran, Wang Chung

Now that the awards season is behind us, the film crop of 2010 can finally be put away in favor of the stuff on the horizon. This weekend features a whole batch of new flicks, and there are also plenty of great movies still kicking around at your local cineplex (including "Drive Angry," a totally kickass 3-D spectacular that deserves to be seen by more people). The movies opening this weekend include the animated adventure comedy "Rango" (which is directed by "Pirates of the Caribbean" helmer Gore Verbinski and stars Johnny Depp as the voice of a justice-seeking chameleon), the science-fiction romance "The Adjustment Bureau" (starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt), the oft-delayed "Beauty and the Beast" adaptation "Beastly" (featuring Vanessa Hudgens and Alex Pettyfer) and the much-buzzed-about Korean serial killer flick "I Saw the Devil." That's an embarrassment of riches.

But for big laughs and killer music cues, look no

‘Take Me Home Tonight’ Music Video: 39 80s Movies In 4 Minutes

The comedy film Take Me Home Tonight opens this weekend and although we haven’t really covered it on the site, being an old guy I got a kick out of this music video put together to promote the movie. Atomic Tom does their version of the 80s classic song “Don’t You Want Me” done back then by The Human League. I’m old enough to remember hearing the original song on the radio and I have to say that I like both the original and this latest version.

The movie takes place in the late 1980s and in the video below they re-enact (Very briefly) almost 40 well known and beloved films from that decade. The way they manage to identify and capture each film in about 5 seconds ...
