  2. The Les Paul family would like a word about Waukesha’s finest, apparently they think they trademarked it…man the BoDeans takes me back to the 80’s…yesterday someone referenced the Bangels and I’m reminded when they played at North Cobb high school in 86…back then radio promotions were cool

    If you’re listening to the Bangles it better be watching a video, volume optional. Susanna Hoffs is the only reason. Otherwise? SMFH.
    Was that Ironman I saw?

    • Some of the boys always thought she had a perfect set of lips…easy RR, I ain’t gonna force any Wham! Or Oingo Boingo, I have standards…if Bluto threatens permanent expulsion for a wayward Rick-roll, it’s penalty of death to play Wham!…especially if you’re trying to wake someone up…before you go go

        DammitFrozenDawg! You just reminded me that I was part of the original MTV generation even though I was in my early 20’s. MTV spiced things up a bit my senior year at UGA, though I blame it for my knowing what a Wham! is. Without that channel, which actually played music videos back then, my brain wouldn’t be polluted with such shit. Until MTV if 96 Rock or the occasional country station didn’t play it then I didn’t hear it. No matter how many Love Tractor and Pylon bills were posted all over town and campus you wouldn’t catch me at the 40Watt.
        Gotdam hippies.

        It took me a good while to admit it, but… Wham were pop geniuses. Make It Big is a masterpiece.
        Also, Oingo Boigo rule. Danny Elfman is an artist of the first order.
        So, probably this should be a playpen topic. LOL

          Agreed on Elfman, CDTT. That guy is prolific. He’s responsible for music as varied as the Men In Black score to The Simpsons theme song.
          If making money is the mark of genius then I’ll admit that Wham! were that. But George Michael? C’mon man. He’s the poster boy for everything that’s wrong with being raised in a commie voting household. He was as sorry a specimen of a man as I can think of. No to his music and influence.

      Susanna Hoffs is still my marriage exclusion.

          I was partial to Nancy Wilson of Heart until the concert at the Steg in ’77 (’78?) until Ann emphasized Kick It Out with a high leg kick through a black slit dress right there in front of me. I dropped the blonde like first period chemistry.

    I was in Athens late 80’s to early 90’s. We wore out that Bodeans record – thanks for the memory!
