TVD's Daily Wax

To clarify (after a comment received yesterday) this week's theme really isn't about the bands who went over the top with the hair or makeup or stage persona...but more of a nod to that era in general when much of the aforementioned congealed into 'New Wave' and often 'Post Punk.' And as well, a nod to Springtime in the '80's, where most of these songs were on pretty heavy rotation...

Dwight Twilley - Girls (Mp3)
The Stranglers - Golden Brown (Mp3)
Fun Boy Three - The Telephone Always Rings (Mp3)
Scritti Politti - Asylums In Jeruzalem (Mp3)
The Comsat Angels - Independence Day (Mp3)

Thanks for all these great songs! 80s era theme is my favorite... what hooked me on your blog was your post of Pale Fountains' "Jeane's Not Happening." Keep 'em coming, love these! :)

That's a great song, isn't it?

Keep checking back...MUCH more to come this week...

Random flashback - I once heard "Golden Brown" in a McDonalds in Camp Hill, PA in the mid-80s. I'm not sure why, but I've never forgotten that.

Nice choice of Fun Boy Three, too.
