Five years later, Lost and Found still shopping for Scorchers
In just a few months, it will be five years since Steve Spears moved from Tampa and his newspaper job to the world of digital content management in Orlando. That move opened up some opportunities on the blog which in turn has given me great privilege to give birth to the Lost and Found feature on Stuck In The '80s. How did I arrive at the name Lost and Found? I just went shopping around with Jason & the Scorchers.
While we have featured almost a thousand artists on Lost and Found (really I'm not kidding - it's close to 1,000!), and it's so fun when I find a rare video not only for one of my favorite bands, but one of my favorite songs. While Jason & the Scorchers are no strangers to the Lost and Found feature making their fourth appearance on the blog, it was a good day when I found a new posting of Shop It Around on YouTube.
Shop It Around is from the Scorchers first full length album (wait for it....) Lost and Found. The video finds the band in Smithville, TN watching the saga unfold of a young man who leaves small town America to fight in a war. When the soldier returns, the Scorchers hatch a plan to get his old girlfriend back. Shop It Around has a tasty guitar solo by cigarette smokin' Warner Hodges and a great chorus that features those words I've had the pleasure to type so many times - Lost and Found.
