These two songs are different from what we usually get. Trying to class up the board? \:\-\)
The Philip Glass one was a really nice peice of music. The Penguin Cafe Orchestra was good as well.




Hmm...I don't think I liked this song. It was alright, but I don't think it'd become a McCartney favorite for me.




This was one of the freakiest videos of the 80's. I remember this being a huge hit. Great song, too. I think I kind of grew sik of it back then, as it was played alot, but I really appreciated it again with this viewing.

I remember this song quite well. It is a great song, really powerful. The pop-y beat is quite a contrast from the subject matter.




I'd forgotten how much I like this song. They really know how to put together a song, and Geddy Lee has a great voice.




This song opens up like 80's garage rock and then become quite experimental. You can see the influence on bands like Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins in the 90's. It really sounds transitional between aternative music of the 80's and 90's.




I'm familiar with the Vaselines from Nirvana. I did look up a few of their songs a while ago, and liked them. This is a good one, too. They're odd and quirky but pretty good.

This is one of their best.

People think grunge started with Nirvana. I think this sort of 80s alternative is becoming obscure so we need to listen to more of it.

Another band I have to listen to more of.
