the Buzz for January 14th, 2012



Sadly, you can’t actually buy any of the tunes in the expertly-assembled video below — ridiculous, considering that no fewer than one of them is considered a touchstone of the form; yet typical, considering ABC’s piss-fucking-poor attempts to properly monetize one of the most valuable entertainment properties it has ever owned — but make no mistake: these are the songs of the day. (Pay close attention to this montage’s fifth clip, with Peabo Bryson lending his dulcet tones to a soap theme that continues to be regarded alongside The Young and the Restless’ powerfully pristine “Nadia’s Theme” as perhaps the greatest in history. God bless you, Peabo, you brilliant, brilliant man.)
