80's Music Woes, Query, and Rambly Stuffs  
Am I the only person who remembers Curiousity Killed the Cat??? Why can't I find any of their songs on Kazaa? And why can't I find decent copies of Bros? Grrarrrr. Got Blow Monkeys though. And thanks to zorac's T00bilicious 80's Collection, I have found the elusive song I could not quite remember and gotten that - Climie Fisher. Much relief.

Does anyone know the answer to this? I bought a disposable camera for my trip to the UK but didn't use it. So it went through the airport x-ray machines twice. Will it still work or should I toss it and get a new one?

I have not seen Smallville but am downloading the episode at this moment and will watch tomorrow so that I can read everyone's posts in an almost-timely manner.

Box spring has slipped off bed frame, causing mattress to have sinkage. I cannot fix it as a king mattress is far too big and heavy for me to move by myself. Wah. Could this be why my back has been hurting? Must beg brother and father to fix - once I have removed incriminating things from room, of course.

Thanks to everyone for their comments on my last post - it's so great to share good news. :D I will be having a special celebration this weekend, that's for certain...

Congrats on your promotion, girlie.

Now, about 80's music. I wanna know how come nobody talks about Johnny Hates Jazz or Breathe. And what about Sly Foxx and Glass Tiger?! I will have you know that I am listening to "Don't Forget Me When I'm Gone" right now!

And while we're at it, am I the only one who remembers that damned Box of Frogs group?! Not to mention Ready for the World? I was all about "Love You Down." These are very grave issues.

*listens to Crowded House*

Thankies! *beam*

I will have you know that the one of those groups you stumped me on was Box of Frogs - I don't think I've ever heard of them. LOVE Breathe. JHJ and Sly Foxx had what, one hit each? Nothing wrong with that but still. Ready for the World? Sure. ADORE Crowded House.

But you got me on Box of Frogs. *shakes head*

New Essential Crowded House coming out in a few weeks - check on Amazon

Also - nothing in this world is better than Breathe. How Can I Fall is one of the most perfect songs ever created on the planet.

Ah the 80's. I miss those fluorescent double belts and neon colored socks. Forget it, I'm listening to disco.

*listens to Sister Sledge*

And how many gumi bracelets did you have, young lady?

And did you have the ones with glitter inside them?

Sorry for spamming.

Well, not that sorry, as I have this and this.

I have two CKTC albums, Down To Earth on 45, their Greatest Hits on CD and a history of using Name & Number on my voicemail in college.

I have Climie Fisher on both album AND cd, as well as a nice collection of Naked Eyes albums.

I purchased the Dirty Dancing soundtrack because of the Blow Monkeys' version of You Don't Own Me, which is a slashy song and I can't believe it was on a mainstream bestseller in 1987.

Let me know what you need...especially from BROS, as I have, um, the Greatest Hits on CD as well, which means that When Will I Be Famous and I Owe You Nothing are, well, accessable.


Hey - do you need any Wet Wet Wet or Then Jerico?
Vicki: HOTcha!hermorrine on April 16th, 2003 09:37 pm (UTC)
Woohoo! Yes! How can we do this? You upload somewhere, burn CDs, or ??? Email me if you'd rather. :)

Okay, I can finally get back into my CD closet now, and get the cds that have been locked in there since November. Email me and we can connect about "mix tape" sorts of things...

Airport X-Ray machines in the UK are film safe and have been for some years, and I've put cameras through X-Rays twice in the US and once in Canada and never had anything blow up or get fried. There should be no problem

Love is obscure 80's euro pop!
I have 5 vols. of the Living in Oblivion 80's music collection-several of the finest CD's i own. i actually have a video of the blow monkeys singing digging ur scene-i was happily surprised to find someone else who knows it. :)
The video of euro 80's music is super old and was brought here by an old boyfriend who was from London. Let me know what songs ur looking 4 and i'll see if i have any i can give u.
glad to see someone else loves euro 80's as much as i do!

Yay you're back! I think that Heidi may be able to help, but I will let you know if she can't. >:D
