The Retro Mix video of the week: Change by John Waite. If you remember when this 1982 video was in regular rotation on MTV, it's practically impossible not to point to the sky as you sing the line "Change" in a falsetto voice.

I haven't thought about Buffalo Stance in ages! Good one. Other Favorites: You Give Love a Bad Name and Policy of Truth.

Holly: Buffalo Stance is a song that I pull out for the show from time to time. Do you remember Neneh Cherry's follow-up hit called "Kisses On the Wind"? I've played that one as well.

Although I am not much of a Bon Jovi fan, I have grown to really like "You Give Love A Bad Name". That's another song that's a great show opener/top of the hour tune.

A guy called my show and wanted to
hear some Depeche Mode. "Policy of Truth" is one of my favorites by them.

I just listened to "Kisses On the Wind" on youtube and I don't remember it! But for some ridiculous reason I remember hearing back then that she had lyme disease...and my friend and I were worried about her. We didn't really know what that was, but it sounded bad.
