Forgotten Treasures

Postby burlivesleftnut on Thu Aug 11, 2005 6:47 pm

I was perusing iTunes the other day looking at old 80s music and I found Big in Japan by Alphaville! I remember I loved the song when I was young so I downloaded it.

Any other forgotten songs out there? Stuff that you just recently heard after decades of neglect?

The Joker by The Steve Miller Band.

"some people call me the spacecowboy/some people call me the gangster of love"

Sodding brilliant.

They keep playing a few Beach Boys tunes on the Radio in the UK, Good Vibrations and God only knows in particular are often on the station my Dad leaves the radio on and recently I've found myself really digging not just the tunes but the actual genius of their music (Down to Brian Wilson)

I had no idea it was well known, how weird. Is the remix any good? Or just a brainfart?

Anyone remember the David Bowie-Mick Jagger remake of Dancing in the Streets? Awesome cover and for the longest time, nearly impossible to find on any album. Thankfully, I downloaded it as one of my first songs ever in mp3 format.

Yeah, that version always got me moving. It's been a long time since I listened to it though. That and Corey Hart's Sunglasses at Night. Perfect 80s song.

They'd been up all night before they recorded it. Neither one could be at Live Aid, so they rushed into a studio, threw whatever they could manage on tape, then acted like idiots in front of a video camera so the tape could be shown at both concerts.

The Waitresses, actually; they also did the theme to "Square Pegs," in which Sarah Jessica Parker was a great tomboy beanpole.

Dennis,

I had great love for that show as a pre-teen. I saw it again recently and found it almost unwatchable. Do you suppose it just wasn't that good, or have I become a humorless old fart?

I was going through some music mags' best singles by year, came across that tune...and had no fucking clue.

oh man, you put that in your top 100 as well right?

I was going through your list and when I came across that song I had to smack myself...I've had that song on tape, mix-tape, CD, and a mix-CD but I had somehow never put it on my i-tunes. Thanks for the reminder.
