The Smiths-"That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore"(1985)

I was recently told that I'd never have friends again like i used to in my hometown of thirty years.

 I may have posted this before, but I can relate to it now more than ever. The only difference is-I'm old. 

For some reason the last line of the movie is omitted. My favorite:
[last lines; typing on computer] I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Orange Juice-"Falling & Laughing" (1980)

From their Peel Sessions :

Gah, I love this band. I just recently heard this version of their classic album opener.

(Also played by Chris P. at his recent DJ gig).

General Public-"Tenderness"(1984)

Does anyone not like this song?

My friend, Chris P., threw this seven-inch record on the other night. The art on the sleeve reminded me of the Obey images by Sheperd Fairey for some reason. Regardless, the front cover doesn't seem to fit the mood of the song, right?

Air Supply-"All Out Of Love"(1980)

I heard this on a trailer to the Euro-version on the Kill List DVD. I just can't seem to remember to which film. I thought maybe it was this movie, but i now I'm not sure(/can't find what I'm looking for).

This one goes out to the stanky Rasta electrician that is fixing our door-buzzer.

Speaking of Rastas, ya'll seent this?

The Smiths-"The Hand That Rocks The Cradle"(1984)

This was one of the first songs Marr and Morrissey wrote together. The second one written by this electrifying duo during the same session was "Suffer Little Children".

Neil Young-"Transformer Man"(1982)

J. Falvo played this one for us Sunday morning over some pancakes in my kitchen. The Kraftwerk influence is amazing and evident at the same damn time. Its sad that his son's cerebral palsy was also a definite influence, too.

Slob used to play this album sometimes, too.(Or was is Re-ac-Tor?)

It's no wonder wonder that Sonic Youth covered this jam from the same album.
