Cocoa Puffs Presents Sonny’s Top Tunes

Sonny’s Top Tunes. Wow. I think this was the first addition to my music collection.


My sister, who was 15 at the time, had sent in box tops for Cocoa Puffs to get me this. She gave it to me on my 7th or 8th birthday. Really – she might have gotten it for herself and then handed it down to me. I never thought that could happen until right now.

Still, pretty cool, right? But wait – let’s take a look at that track list:

  1. Information Society – What’s On Your Mind (Pure Energy)
  2. Stacey Q – Two Of Hearts
  3. Sheriff – When I’m With You
  4. Club Nouveau – Lean On Me
  5. Times Two – Strange But True
  6. Los Lobos – Come On, Let’s Go

Yup. 80s hits. I was a 7 year old boy listening to Two Of Hearts all the time.

I only remember some of the other songs, like the one from Information Society and the Lean on Me cover. Not a whole lot of everything else. The tape is long gone, but through the magic of Rdio we can recreate that same mixtape.

Presenting *Cocoa Puffs Presents Sonny’s Top Tunes*…on Rdio.

Everything except Strange But True is on Rdio. I’m listening to it right now and thinking about what it was like to be 7 years old.

If this doesn’t sell you on an Rdio subscription I don’t know what will.
