Afternoon Aural: Rick Astley

https://youtu.be/onrzgB_-0sM
Remember Rick Astley? No, we didn’t either until Mollygood’s Cord Jefferson started singing “Never Gonna Give You Up”. Then we remembered the red-headed British soul singer. He’s kind of like a British, 80’s version of Clay Aiken. Only better. Obviously.

Above you’ll find the video for 1987’s “Whenever You Need Somebody”. After the jump you can feel guilty enjoying “Never Gonna Give You Up”, also from 1987. Sadly, Astley hasn’t released a single since.
