TyLeishia’s Hot Blog & Commentary for Rick Astley
Who remembers this hit? I can remember what was going on in the summer months and it sure was the days I’d love to see again. No matter where I was it was as if Rick knew when to pop up on television, on a video or on the radio; Rick made my day. The sad truth is I didn’t know his name for the longest time and didn’t know he was from the Uk but one thing I did know, he could make the worst day a good one with this hit and others he rocked in the 80’s.
