Have a Taste of Cinnamon Girl!

  “Devil in Me,” the latest single from UK-based (Denmark-raised) Cinnamon Girl, is very, very tempting. It’s an 80s pop dream of a song with loads of synth and chorus that’s catchy as hell. (Pun intended). I read that Cinnamon Girl writes and produces her own stuff, which is always nice to hear. I realize we often don’t like to know people with model good looks are multi-talented…   Check out the heavily color-blocked video:   Oh and it’s available to download for free! I can’t wait to hear more. Continue reading Have a Taste of Cinnamon Girl!

The Legwarmers at Rams Head Live

We saw the signs of an 80s epidemic before we stepped into Rams Head Live. The Legwarmers, an 80s cover band, had an impressive following that culminated in men and women wearing leggings, neon headbands, big hair, wigs, huge earrings, zebra and leopard print, and the odd person who had a “Frankie Say Relax” t-shirt on.

“the edge of glory”- lady gaga

call me crazy (wouldn’t be the first time) but the lady’s “edge of glory” is giving me major tiffany as judy jetson in the jetsons movie vibes.  (the whole born this way era gaga makes me think of la fille jetson. yes, now more than ever, even though she did this at glastonbury hace cuando.)  and it makes sense given the convo i had with jovan israel when i saw her wearing his beloved creepers in the “judas” video.  i still think she’s a trendsetter but he says she’s really just a hybrid of a lot of trends, etc.  i’m … Continue reading “the edge of glory”- lady gaga

“no more words”- berlin

that’s right, berlin!  contrary to popular belief, this 1980s l.a. band was more than a one-hit-wonder.  and although “take my breath away” is their most famous, they had quite a string of hits.  their album pleasure victim is in my top 25 of all time, but the song i’m posting comes from love life.  here’s “no more words”: 02_No_More_Words.m4a Listen on Posterous   unlike her blonder counterpart, *cough* deborah harry  *cough*, terri nunn (lead singer) could/can really sing.  if you’re into new-new-wave acts like the killers, lady gaga, marina and the diamonds, and neon indian you’ll like berlin.   check … Continue reading “no more words”- berlin
