The Breakfast Club. Does anyone remember that movie?
A few tracks up on the Black Iris Radio this week. The Postal Service song “Such Great Heights” is back to haunt me from almost 2 years ago. Its actually been in the news lately as the band has accussed Apple of plagerising their video for the song, nearly shot for shot. I have to admit they are very similar. You can watch a comparision here.
They do write catchy songs so there’s also “Be Still My Heart” and a mellow acoustic cover of “Such Great Heights” by Iron & Wine. Also check out Jimmy Eat World’s “For Me This is Heaven” and “Disintegration”. A new song I heard this week is “For Blue Skies” by Strays Don’t Sleep, it’s pretty mellow but I think the bridge of the song is really nice. “Anna’s Song” by Silverchair is a blast from the past; well at least my past. “When I’m Gone” by Eminem is just a song I’ve been diggin this week for some reason. I don’t like all his songs, a lot are just redundant, but some tracks I have to admit are simply amazing.
They’re all up on the Black Iris Radio, so check’em out while they last this week.
Thanks Nas. I’ve been trying to listen to these songs since the morning, at work I can’t play music and just yesterday my hard disk got damaged 🙁
i remember the breakfast club. there was a rerun on a local south african tv station a few months back. classic viewing, especially the performance by a young floppy-haired Estevez.
SC, ouch, sorry about that
Saaleha, see i went on a ‘what ever happened to emilio estevez’ rant for a whole paragraph before i figured no one’d know or care what the hell i was talking about. the last time i saw him he was in season 5 of the west wing playing his father Martin Sheen as a young president bartlett in home movies, and it was a 5 second glimpse at best.
they should make The Brunch Club 😀
🙂 but the eighties will always be the eighties. Bad hair and legwarmers but some good music.
saaleha, yes! yes! good music. who can forget john cusak holding up the boom box with peter gabriel blasting out; the epitome of coolness 😀
strange though. my only memories of the 80’s either involve muppets or are socially fabricated from late night tv reruns throughout the 90’s
lol, the eighties for me was a blur until ’85, and I remember my soundtrack being the theme from sesame street.
