This video by Matisse reminds me of a 1970s horror flick:

Fujiya & Miyagi sounding so 80s dark on this one:

I started last week’s show off with an energetic goodie from The Good Natured:

A fricking dirt bike music video from Generationals…which brings me back to my childhood, when I’d cry all day at my dad’s bike races because I wanted to be at home listening to records…

Love this video from Rockets in a Coma–pretty girl abducts pretty boy:

I live for this electro cover of The Cure from Dead Sexy, Inc. Okay, I just live for their name…

Last week I played Wang Chung’s redo of “Dance Hall Days” with an orchestra. This seems to be a trend with 80s new wave bands, but basically all they’re doing is replacing the string sound of a keyboard with actual strings!

PVRIS makes some catchy alternative, like “Anyone Else”:

Wolf Alice gets light and airy with “Freazy”:

Remix albums are hit or miss, but the “flipped” versions from The Shins featured this gem that I played on my show last week:

The time Bowling for Soup went dance…

Sound of Guns is such a great overlooked alternative band of the new millennium:

Going back a bit, this is one of my favorite U2 songs of the new millennium:

I could go with either the remix or the original album version of Matisse covering Cyndi Lauper. Last week I went with the album version:

And with two version of The English Beat running around these days, I went with the Dave Wakeling one on this episode:
