Sunday Side Up Weekly Special: "Maybe I'm a Fool" by Eddie Money (Happy Heavenly Birthday)John Lockwood
Born Edward Joseph Mahoney in New York on March 21st, 1949, Eddie Money had 11 top 40 songs in the 70s and 80s. One of these (and a personal fave of mine) is 1979's "Maybe I'm a Fool" from his "Life for the Taking" album.
Although he could definately rock, this soulful tune features, along with his unmistakable voice, a very cool saxophone solo, played by Eddie himself!
Happy Heavenly Birthday, Eddie Money!
Fun Money Fact: In a 2012 Geico commercial, Eddie appears as the owner of a travel agency and sings "Two Tickets to Paradise'... to a family of four!
Personal Fun Money Fact: I had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing him several years (and radio stations) ago. Nice guy!
