TVD On The Radio

Know where you’re more likely to hear the radio than not? That’d be in a taxi cab, such as the one I was in last night.

The rain had begun to fall a bit, tapping out a groove on the hood of the car in sync with the selection on the dial. The windshield wipers wound a twisty bass line below the rain as the bleating of car horns accented on the downbeat. My rum and coke soaked fingers tapped out 8th notes after writing KISS on the humid window with the sharp SS’s per the actual logo.

And the soundtrack? 80’s synthpop, way out of context.

I paid the driver at my door, his head not once stopping its bobbing to the tinny groove. Smiled, waved, drove off.

Now, it’s your turn:

Re-Flex - Hurt (Mp3)
Yazoo - Situation (Mp3)
Industry - State Of The Nation (Mp3)
OMD - Enola Gay (Mp3)
Depeche Mode - Everything Counts (Mp3)

How serendipitous! Going to be talking about Hiroshima tonight in the class I teach.

Looking for the MP3 "Hurt" by Reflex. I've been searching for years and finally found it but it is not unavailable for download!

Can anyone help - I really really really would like this for my iPod. Thanks, Joan (who is new at this Mp3 thing! :)
