Listening Post

Our 80s theme week continues with one of those bands that's, incredibly, still going as strong today as they were a quarter-century ago.

From the 1986 album Somewhere in Time, here's the mighty Iron Maiden -- Wasted Years.

Great version of this song in the excellent documentary 'Iron Maiden: Flight 666' which documents the first leg on Maiden's 2008 tour. Watched it in glorious HD with surround and it was amazing. Palladia HD airs it every couple of months.

Saw them perform it in Washington in 2008. They're just as tight a performance now as they were 20, 30 years ago.

This is another excellent pick for "Stuff That, Curiously Enough, All Just Happened Came Out At Pretty Much The Exact Same Time That Chez Both Got His Drivers License and Started Getting Laid Regularly" week, also sometimes referred to as, "Time of Your Life, Kid," week.

Except for the Souixsie song, of course.

Just out of curiosity, how old were you when when she did that boa-fuck/sing-to-your-face thing that you told us about?

I didn't start getting laid regularly til college. And the Siouxsie concert was in August of 87. I had just graduated from high school so I was 17.
