Spool Going
Round
is looking at songs that maybe never were played on the radio,
or songs that were and then stopped.   If I don’t add new life to these
songs they may become extinct.   We may never hear of them again.   So press play and tell a friend to listen as well.   I have
to use my (limited) power to save these songs.   I look forward to your
help in this very important crusade.

My son was recently watching a movie that had the storyline which included Jonah in the belly of a whale.  Immediately this song by Burning Sensations came into my mind and soon escaped from my lips.   Not long after my son and I could be heard from blocks around singing together and I remembered what a great song “Belly of the Whale,” is.  I started rifling through my music collection.   I was sure that I must have this song somewhere.  I looked through many “80’s” compilations and could not find it.   Then I went to the web thinking, I will purchase the single somewhere for $.99.  After checking many of the online options I realized this is a hard song to find.

“Belly of a Whale” by Burning Sensations is not on any digital service provider.  One did have a new recording of the song but from the 30 second sample you could tell that is was seriously lacking from the original.  Hence, another song was in need of saving.  If the kids can’t buy it online, and the radio won’t play it, how are they going to know it exists? I should have looked for this when I was out on Record Store Day.

Please help me save this great song from extinction.
