Thursday Music

Ahh the 80s. Leg warmers, weird bracelets, and Spuds McKenzie ruled the culture. People were under the mistaken impression that Madonna could sing and women were roaming the streets with claw hair.

I'm kind of glad it's over.

As much as I can't stand bad pop music I find an odd fascination with New Found Glory covers. The punk band who for some reason thought it would be a good idea to tweek Celine Dion and Bryan Adams songs still captures my ear.

So today fine readers I bring you their cover of 'Crazy for You'. You're welcome.

"Madonna is a pro. I don't like her and have no respect for her but- I don't think she should be called a musician or a dancer or whatever you know, but I do have, well I do have respect for her ability to completely manipulate the media and have them work for her." - Jon Fishman

I am quite sure Madonna pays no mind to her naysayers. Those who choose to spend their days vilifying her would give their eye teeth to have her success, because how many musicians/dancers/actors go into the business to achieve, at best, mediocre success.

No one says Madonna is like anyone else, but isn't Phish considered a sloppy second to the Grateful Dead?

Talent or no talent...originality is always interesting.

I freaking loved the 80's including the jelly jewlery/shoes and yes the bad pop music! I even liked *gasp* Madonna!!
