SummerMix2: new world order

There were a couple of summers that my life was all about cheesy new wave and a club called Spit and spiking my hair up. This is the playlist for those summers:

The Smiths - This Charming Man
Tin Tin - Kiss Me
Trans X - Living on Video
Intaferon - Get Out of London*
The Alarm - 68 Guns
Aztec Camera - Oblivious
B-52's - Planet Claire
Blancmange - Living on the Ceiling
Fiction Factory - Feels Like Heaven
Gang of Four - To Hell With Poverty
Heaven 17 - Fascist Groove Thing
New Order - Blue Monday
Yello - I Love You
Split Enz - I Got You
Thomas Dolby - Radio Silence
Malcolm McClaren - Buffalo Gals

*pretty sad that one of my favorite obsucre 80's songs is now on an Olsen Twins soundtrack, eh?

I have the feeling this summer will be the summer that Eminem song plays repeatedly in my head.


kiss me with your mou-outh...your love is better than wine... (damn. i almost forgot about that song.) hmm-hmm-hmmm

Would you DJ my next party?

But since I was 14 in 1986 or so, I would need the odd Duran Duran tune in there... And don't look at me like that. Peter Frampton? Nuff said.

Oh! So glad someone else remembers and admits to Aztec Camera and Blancmange! Uh, am I a geek if I still like those albums?

I was trying to find the lyrics for "baby pain" by Intaferon and kept ending up at the damn Olsen twins.

Did you ever hear Malcom McClaren's "Madame Butterfly"? I so loved that song.

Fuck, the Alarm were SO GOOD, even if they were just a pale, watered-down version of the Clash made semi-palatable for radio play. "I Got You" still makes the hair on my neck stand up. And of course, Gang of Four. Where have all the good Socialist funk bands gone, huh?

He knows so much about these things.

That is still one of my favorite songs. And, yes, I would wear the song's t-shirt if it hadn't disintegrated in the washer one day in '89.

BLANCMANGE! the white mange! most hated band ever!!!

Why ponder life's complexities when the leather runs smooth on the passenger seat?

Good advice this summer.
