Listening Post (Friday Bonus Edition)



I'm obviously feeling very retro today.

This is one of the best covers ever done -- seriously.

Don't ask, just play.

Damn, where DID I leave Dad's classic Vette and my coke?

I had a big girlcrush on Susanna Hoffs. Then after seeing her in the audience for 2 seconds at the shitstorm that was the Emmys, I, uh, still have a girlcrush on Susanna Hoffs.

I also now feel like watching Less than Zero...

Heh...I read the description and I was sure that you were going to give us a Jason and the Scorchers two-fer with their cover of Absolutely Sweet Marie.

em,

The first thing I said when I heard the song was, "we should watch Less Than Zero".

I've still got a huge crush on Susana Hoffs... those eyes...

OK, felis, "Less Than Zero" party for everyone! Don't know if I can stomach the debates tonight...

...and yup, jeremy, she's still totally hot.

OK, add me to the list of people with a fondness (guilty or otherwise) for the Bangles. I still like "Walk Like an Egyptian" for some strange reason.

I got hooked on Banarama around the same period time, but probably only because I couldn't get enough of their video of "Venus." (Oddly enough, while the red latex clad fetishism worked for me there, it did nothing but make me nauseuated when Britney Spears did it in "Oops I Did It Again.")
