Re: 80's music

I was just reminded of how one fellow in high school thought that my teenaged self resembled Thomas Dolby, such that I'd regularly be greeted from across a crowded corridor by him shouting "SCIENCE!"

Unfortunately, the original video doesn't seem to be available on YouTube, so screw it.

Re: 80's music

I love 'em but it was never the same after Ricky died. D. Boon died in '85, too.

When I first saw these guys I had never seen an acoustic bass guitar. There were electric basses and stand-up basses, but this was something new. I thought it was about the coolest thing I'd ever seen, and was crazy about the sound. I wore their first record out. By the time I got to see them a few years later, they had dropped the acoustic thing and were playing songs about Jesus.

Re: 80's music

^That worked, thanks!

Funny thing about the resemblance...I didn't see it then, but I do now (compared to how I looked at the time).

Re: 80's music

Here's a few favorites of mine from the early 80s:

Toto - Rosanna



And from Duran Duran - Rio



Adam Ant - Goody Two Shoes



Here's an MTV classic: Wall of Voodoo - Mexican Radio



Love the 80s. What an eclectic decade for music.

Because, in the 80s, it was possible to put more than one song in a single video narrative.

Re: 80's music

A couple of Trek-related entries....

I'm sure we're all familiar with this classic spoof:



(I also wanted to include "The Trouble with Klingons", but all I could find was a brief excerpt advertising Dr. Demento's website.)

And then there's this non-spoof with some Trek in it that I remember hearing in the late 80s:

Re: 80's music

And I just remembered this one....Hope the mods won't mind two posts in a row, considering the aforementioned difficulties involved in editing posts with embedded YouTube videos....
