  1. The only thing I remember from this post is Talking Heads. And I am not sure if I liked them or not. It's been a long time since I listened to anything of theirs.

    1. @Wendell: That Talking Heads album is high up on many lists of the best albums of 1980. I prefer their 1979 album, but Remain in Light is a classic

  2. Haha, your mention of "Dumb Waiters" makes me want to watch Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind again.

    1. @Josh: Yep, Beck’s cover of Everybody's Got to Learn Sometime is really good too. Talking of Beck-I heard his new album is out in Nov 2016.

    2. @Josh: Actually Beck's album may not arrive until 2017, it keeps getting postponed, we'll see.


What do you think about the post? I look forward to hearing from you. Rest assured I will reply soon.
