BOB's Featured 80's Track

Elton John - I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues

I Guess That’s Why They Call It the Blues is a song by Elton John, with music by John and Davey Johnstone and lyrics by Bernie Taupin. It is the first single from John’s hugely successful 17th studio album Too Low for Zero. In the United States, it became one of John’s biggest hits of the 1980s, holding at #2 for four weeks on the Adult Contemporary chart, and reaching #4 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The song features Stevie Wonder on harmonica. The song received largely favorable reviews, with Bill Janovitz of AllMusic declaring the song “likely to stand the test of time as a standard.

Nansemond River High School

Principal Daniel OLeary Jr. mentions BOB FM in his speech to his 2018 graduation class of Nanesmond River High School. OLeary speaks about how BOB FM gave him inspiration for his speech (and BOB loves it). BOB FM plays a variety of music with no repeats each day… when working on his speech Principal OLeary said the the variety of songs is much like his students that he has in the 2018 class. An eclectic group each with their own songs coming together and making one amazing radio station AND one amazing 2018 graduation class. BOB wants to congratulate you all!
