Friday Five: 80's Edition
[Note: Your time has come and gone. Links expire after 24 hours. Try back next Friday for more musical mayhem]
Break out the big hair. It's an all 80's edition of the Friday Five. This is the ugly side of the 80's, for the most part. But a side we have to live with if we want to keep pestering our sister about her Aqua Net hair, dyed stretch jeans, Capezio sneaker days. It could be worse. I didn't bring up Jefferson Starship.
New Edition - Cool it Now. (Download)
Just shut up. I loved this band, man. LOVED them. I may have been banging my head to the big metal sounds of the day on the outside, but on the inside, I was all about Bell, Biv and Devoe.
Scorpions - Rock You Like a Hurricane (Download)
Oh, those crazy Germans. I had this...thing...for Michael Schenker. I don't know what to call it. He wasn't really that hot, but I still thought about him in ways that a young girl just shouldn't be thinking.
REO Speedwagon - Keep on Loving You (download)
This one goes out to legendary New York Islander announcer Eddie Westfall. Some time in the early 80's, this band was doing a stint at Nassau Coliseum and ol' Eddie kept referring to them as REO Speedway, no matter how many times that silly leprechaun Jiggs McDonald corrected him.
Loverboy - Working For The Weekend (Download)
Another LDD, sent out to the world's biggest Loverboy fan, James Lileks.
Enjoy. Or not. I just thought I'd do something different from the usual metalupyourass I give you.
