Absolutely OUTSTANDING. Sir, your musical taste is the apotheosis of my own.


Well, except for the Shakira lycanthropy stuff.
P.S. How goes the search for Ann Magnuson's "How To Be A New Wave Video Slut"?

You can thank the Father of the Flea for this one. I grew up listening to Herb Alpert; great stuff.

This video is actually growing on me. The great thing about this stuff is that back in the day, they actually had to get orchestral strings and the brass band out onto the beach, and the various elevated rock surfaces.

Today they would throw everyone into a studio against a green screen and matte the whole thing.

I remember we had the whipped cream album when I was a little kid. Found it in the pile with the other records and remember thinking it was something I wasn't supposed to be looking at.
