I don't get it. I must be too young.

John Scalzi | November 5, 2004 05:10 PM

Oh, the kids these days.

21st century equivalent: Mashing Kelli Clarkson with Interpol.

Ow. Just ow.

That takes me back to my sophmore year of HS. When (*hottie*) Terri M. had a crush on me but I was such a geek as to have no clue. And even if I knew, I wouldn't have known how to seal the deal, if you know what I mean.

Anyone else remember "Women" by Def Leppard ?

They say that when you die, your life flashes before your eyes.

And that was the soundtrack.

I feel so extraordinary / Something's got a hold on me / I get this feeling I'm in motion / A sudden sense of liberty

John ... go back to work...

wil | November 5, 2004 11:32 PM

You're stalling... get back to work. ;)

Rex | November 6, 2004 02:33 AM

I Love it!

I'm listening through their whole catalog . . .

Oh. My. Gosh. That must suck.

Just be prepared to scream.

Screaming in motion, any other cautions?

PiscusFiche | November 7, 2004 11:29 AM

Meep.

That's....disturbing. On so many levels.

(My younger siblings like this group called Dune that covers a lot of 80s music, and they don't understand why I run screaming from their cover of Depeche Mode's Somebody.)

Stephen | November 8, 2004 12:46 AM

I'm not totally sure why, but I think my reaction to this is the same as if I heard a Nitzer Ebb cover by Alvin and the Chipmunks.

This may revive Belinda Carlisle's career! I dunno, it brings back a lot of nice memories, so I'll give it a '75'. It does have a wicked beat and you can still dance to it.

Christopher Davis | November 8, 2004 02:27 PM

Oh yeah? Try this one.

What really scares me is how well that works. (Yes, it's for nonstandard values of "well"....)

Steve Eley | November 11, 2004 10:50 PM

Christopher Davis:
"Oh yeah? Try this one."

Holy crap. I have not the words.

My wife is the 80s fan between us. I just burned that to a CD and put it into her car stereo. Let's find out if I'm still married on Saturday.
