One of my favorite 80s bands is out touring this summer. If you can catch The Go-Go’s in a town near you do it (tour is actually half over). Saw them last year and I am just as excited to see them this year! Last year they were with the Psychedelic Furs this year they are with Scandal, The Motels, Naked Eyes and Cutting Crew. It will be like listening to a mix tape.
Speaking of mix tapes…back in the day K-Tel was the king of mix tapes. I picked up a cassette at K-Mart, seems like a million years ago now, called The Beat. I loved that tape. I don’t remember thinking all the songs were my favorites but I like most of them if not all of them and played the tape until it started sounding all weird and worn out. I am pretty sure I still have that tape around here somewhere even though it doesn’t sound right any more.
Here is the sound list:
- A Flock Of Seagulls – I Ran (So Far Away)
- Kim Wilde – Kids In America
- Haircut One Hundred – Love Plus One
- Sparks – I Predict
- Split Enz – I Got You
- Graham Parker – You Hit The Spot
- The Waitresses – I Know What Boys Like
- Go-Go’s – We Got The Beat
- Bow Wow Wow – I Want Candy
- Duran Duran – Girls On Film
- Thompson Twins – In The Name Of Love
- Depeche Mode – Dreaming Of Me
- Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark – Joan Of Arc
- Billy Idol – Hot In The City
Need to dig through the old MP3s and get a playlist setup to mimic this blast from my past.
