Teri DeSario – All I Wanna Do

Picture2Teri DeSario started out as a folk singer then into jazz after marrying trumpeter Bill Purse. One night they are playing in a club, a guy comes up, claims from the Bee Gees and asked for a demo. Barry Gibb liked Teri then deal with Casablanca record to release Ain’t Nothing Gonna Keep Me From You in 1977. Teri also collaborated with her old high school friend Harry Casey, leader of KC & The Sunshine Band. They covered Yes I’m Ready as a duet to reach #2 on Billboard Hot 100, only being outranked by Queen’s Crazy Little Thing Called Love. Sadly, disco music began to fade out from American popular music scene in 80s. So Casablanca persuaded Teri to adapt females rock sound, copy the likes of Pat Benatar for her 3rd album, Caught. With her phenomenal vocal range she was soon cutting one of the great, if undiscovered, melodic rock albums. Assisted with some of the best West Coast musicians such as Steve Lukather, Mike Landau, and Carlos Vega, the album explodes with pure melodic mayhem. Unfortunately, little promotion and genre changes it was met with poor sales. After that Teri got into Christian music and she was nominated for a Grammy in 1986. Here’s Teri DeSario performing All I Wanna Do on Solid Gold, with a movie where Meryl Streep and Robert De Niro have an affair in 1984 New York City. Both are my fave and dedicated to my beloved wife. (nDy) 

Ide video kali ini berawal dari cuplikan film lawas Falling In Love tahun 1984, kurang populer tapi fenomenal. Sulit membayangkan aktor stereotip mafia Robert De Niro adu romantis dgn Meryl Streep, lewat skenario yg membumi. Tentang rutinitas penumpang transportasi umum lalu sering bertemu pulang pergi, hingga terjebak permainan meski mereka telah berkeluarga harmonis. Rada klise, maka yg mengundang minatku kemarin pada lagunya, Mountain Dance milik Dave Grusin. Sudah pasti statusnya bakalan dicekal youtube, makanya kucari versi konser atau cover, ternyata tetap dicekal. Lalu masuklah pesan rutin istriku via WA dgn kerinduan akibat pisah pulau karena pekerjaan masing2. Maka hari ini kuputuskan utk bikin video buatnya, entah kenapa terpilih Teri DeSario. Bagi yg ingin tau siapa Teri, baca tulisanku di atas. Yang jelas status videonya langka di youtube dgn kualitas audio jelek. Setelah empat jam membedah audio lalu visual dgn materi film Falling In Love yg sempat terlantar akibat lagu Mountain Dance dicekal, maka jadilah video untuk istriku ini. Hasil empat jam kesekian pengisi waktu. (nDy)
