monkeyFLASHmonkeyBACK… Oliver & Billy Joel AND Huey Lewis?!
This post presupposes that I had access to the TripleDoubleU or blogging before there was either… this would be my post back in 1988, when I was prime fodder for the TripleDoubleU or blogging these days.

And guess what’s even better?
Huey Lewis is performing the theme song, Once Upon a Time in New York City. I can’t wait to get this cassette! The only way this news could get any better is if my dream girl sang on the soundtrack:
