Frankly, I still claim this is the single greatest gift I ever received. I got it for Christmas back in the 1980’s and it was incredible. It had this little disk in the upper right hand corner that would play certain songs. I remember the disk I had played Greensleeves, and Phill Collins’ Against All Odds. Like I said, incredible.

So, take a look at me now!
It’s just an empty face!

On that note, I leave you with a song that I was drawn to for the title. The song itself turned out to be good as well. The name of the band is After-School Sports and the name of the song is Almost Left My Boyfriend for His Casio. I told you it was a fantastic title.
