  1. LOVE the music! 1987 was a great year, musically speaking. I remember when “Luka” was nominated for a Grammy the following year (1988). It was up for the award along with “La Bamba,” “Didn’t We Almost Have it All?” “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For,” and the song that won, “Somewhere Out There.” I remember thinking, “Wait, we have a song about DV, and the song that wins was two mice singing?!” (no disrespect to James Horner, Barry Mann, and Cynthia Weil). I was partial to “Luka” for sure. Still, I appreciate “Somewhere Out There” for its sophistication (it’s based on the 2nd movement of Beethoven’s Pathetiqué Sonata) and it’s subsequent recording by James Ingram and Linda Ronstadt.

  2. Why did I think I was older when I got into some of these songs? I am losing track of time, it seems.
