Lileks again, for Friday. This time on great tunes of the 80's
Ahem, little man, I say (even tho' I 'preciate it was no fulsome list).
No Ian Dury & The Blockheads? I want to be Straight is one of the 80's greatest efforts.
No Madness? One Step Beyond.
No Specials? Message to you Rudy.
Clash? Rock the Casbah.
Did The Cars do "My Best Friend's Girl" in the 80's?
Oooh, just remembered, Freeze Frame - lordy, I think that was the J Geils Band or some such. Or was that the 90's. I dunno. I really liked brandy in the 80's and the 90's was Primo Estate Colombard by the triple litre of a nighttime.
Anyhoo, to continue, I am with Lileks on the "Der Kommissar" and so with him on the "What I like about you".
Patrick Hernandez "Born to be Alive."
Whatever that Devo offshoot was that did "How can the labouring man find time for self-culture."
Stevie Ray Vaughan. George Thorogood. XTC.
Hey. Now I think on it, it was not such a crappy decade for sounds after all.
