    I saw David Bowie & Nine Inch Nails and I went to see NIN but enjoyed DB much more. :)

    A little bit of a cheat, this came out in May of 1979, but I just couldn't resist. I love this song, and especially this version.

    And just to confirm the awesomeness of Gary Numan, here he is with Nine Inch Nails (no I'm not kidding)

    @Gov Kodos Yeah it was a good show...bizarre audience though. LOL. Young goth types and their parents. :D Two things I remember are a couple having sex near us and a preppy girl jumping the area between the lawn and seated area...when me and my friend tried they stopped us...they didn't stop her. LOL.

    To millions in the UK, these two songs became synonymous with a certain music television programme during the 80s:

    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. :p

    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.

    ^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).

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