Have you heard any of the new B-52s CD? it's pretty great :)

Awesome! I could listen to "The Only Living Boy in New York" on repeat a thousand times in a row. And, I haven't thought of "Waiting for a Star to Fall" in a thousand years. Nice.

Mistress of the D: I just listened to 30 second snippets of songs from their new CD. I really liked what I heard. I plan on featuring one of their new tunes in an upcoming "Now and Then" segment on my show. It's hard to believe that this is the B-52's first album of all new material since 1992!

What's A Donzer: The first version of "The Only Living Boy In New York" that I ever heard was the remake by Everything But the Girl. They do a pretty faithful version of it.

I remember when "Waiting For A Star To Fall" was in heavy (and I mean heavy) rotation on MTV. I don't know if you watched the clips that I embedded in this post, but the video to "Waiting For A Star To Fall" is included.

Umm....Expose, Point of No Return? I'm trying to figure out which song you are referring to...

Malcolm said...

Holly: Yes, "Point of No Return" is the song that I was referring to in the email I sent you. When I hear them, I am reminded of a friend of mine from back in the day. She was heavily into the dance divas of the 80s (Expose, Madonna, Jody Watley, etc.).

Whew...I'm glad I guessed it!
