Kyrie has been a top trending topic for Tampa for the past day or two. Ok, I realize much of the chatter is probably about Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving. But a part of me wants to believe the world is suddenly appreciating and celebrating Mr. Mister’s giant Q105 hit from 1986 hit “Kyrie.”
Wanna know some stuff you didn’t know about this iconic 80s anthem you’ve been singing in your car for 30 years?
- Kyrie means “Lord, have mercy” in Greek.
- The song was used in Miami Vice.
- If you can find it, the vinyl single is purple.
Ok now let’s rock. Turn your speakers up! Here’s a great live version you might not have heard before!
