13. Feel It Again/Honeymoon Suite

Honeymoon Suite!! Haven't thought of them in years, but the second I saw the name, an album cover can be seen in my mind's eye. Like it was yesterday, and I was browsing the record store.

17. Carrie/Europe

This is the only song, beside Honeymoon Suite's, that I can't quite put my finger on in terms of melody. I'm sure I heard it many times -- probably saw the video over and over again during my freshman year at college, on that MTV countdown show Adam Curry hosted.

I know it's blend of pop and electronica can sound a bit dated in places, but I still love Everything But The Girl's Walking Wounded even though it reminds me of some painful (relationship-wise) times.

Where's the guilt? All Music gives Walking Wounded 4.5 stars (out of 5).

I love Amplified Heart, which reminds me of when I used to think about phantom relationships that I'd never had, and how those relationships simply hadn't worked out. ::blushing::

Yeah... "phantom relationships" definitely haunt Walking Wounded for me.

Kid Rock - All Summer Long
Rush - Time Stand Still (added bonus, the video for this song may be my all time biggest music video guilty pleasure)

Recent additions to my iPod:
A Flock of Seagulls (their whole first album).
Rick Springfield's "Celebrate Youth"
John Parr's "Naughty Naughty", Animotion's "Obsession", Rod Stewart's "Infatuation", etc.
Selections from Prince's Lovesexy and Graffiti Bridge--(the former had to be edited manually, as it was recorded as a single 40-something minute track).
Erasure (Yahoo!)

Let the attacks begin...

Interesting article here on how a band's "worst work" is sometimes judged much too hastily.

Sometimes conventional wisdom is a big, fat liar.

While getting ready to review the new Rush disc, I decided to go back and re-listen to some of the band’s bad albums. Its lost-in-the-weeds albums. The albums that conventional wisdom had long spoken ill of. It turns out they don’t suck at all.

Remember, we’re speaking in a relative sense here. Most Rush fans will agree that even at the band’s stretch of lowest inspiration, it still can still crank out some good songs. But upon reexamination, many of albums that fall squarely in the middle of Rush’s supposed low point—I’ll call it the band’s “dead zone”—aren’t just relatively good. They’re really good.

For example: 1987’s Hold Your Fire.

SWEET! Rush's Hold Your Fire tour was the first big concert I attended. A month or two ago I even bought a cheap version of the Show of Hands DVD to commemorate the upcoming 25th anniversary of that night!

Rush's Hold Your Fire should not be considered a guilty pleasure. It's awesome. And despite the very 80s video posted above, the song "Time Stand Still" is one of the band's best ever.

Totally forgot about Aimee Mann as the singing camera operator!

Looks like I'll be listening to Hold Your Fire all afternoon.
