FUTURE tease: 8/10/18 – FLASHBACK recap: 8/3/18

Last week’s “Sing It Again” episode was loaded with 80s artists covering their own songs. Here’s just a taste of what I played and where they came from:

One of my favorites from Berlin’s Pleasure Victim EP, the opening track “Tell Me Why” and many of their other songs were rerecorded by Terri Nunn for this “Greatest Hits” album.

Gang of Four rerecorded a load of their songs on the album Return the Gift:

Blondie released their Ghosts of Download album as a double disc with a Greatest Hits CD of rerecordings, including a gem from Parallel Lines:

Cool modern dance rerecording of Information Society’s first club hit:

I packed last week’s episode with new stuff, so there are so many songs I want to share it was hard to narrow it down. Starting off just as I started the show, it’s the awesome Alex Lahey. She taps into the rockin’ fun of Joan Jett:

He goes from the 80s sound of Chain Gang of 1974 to his alter ego as 90s grunging throwbacker Teenage Wrist:

Houndmouth makes it the 80s all over again:

Just Loud channels the Prince look in this video:

The Hunna knows how to make it catchy:

St. Vincent rerecords a slow song as a fast song and has loads…of fun in the video:

Underworld brings Iggy to the dance clubs:

And finally, this video by The Boxer Rebellion is just too cool:

I love those 80s covers, so I featured this one of a Dead or Alive classic on last week’s show:

Shame just classic punk rock’s this alternative track:

Heard this one from The Gang in a horror flick called Demon Hole, and I knew immediately I had to play it on my show:

And The Twins released a new album and still sound as 80s as ever:

Had to play some new Goldfrapp on last week’s episode, especially since a redo of a track from her latest album…with Dave Gahan lending a hand.

Poke around YouTube enough and you’ll find some great remixers taking on 80s faves, like this one from Virgin Magnetic:

The Blow Waves videos always tap into that 80s sleaze factor:

Peaches throws her peaches into the mix on a Berlin classic:

Ssion teaming up with MNDR is…well…heaven:

California Wives sounding 80s awesome:

And finally, one of the addicting tracks from the amazing album by Sink Ya Teeth:

Weezer stays faithful to the original “You Might Think” by The Cars for the Cars 2 soundtrack:

Julien-K rox the dance as usual:

She Wants Revenge just sounds 80s awesome:

Mixing things up – literally – on last week’s episode, I played a track from the OMD remix release of songs from their latest album, The Punishment of Luxury:

You know it’s going to end up on my show when it’s a synthpop cover of Billy Joel:

And you know it’s going to end up on my show when it’s an alternative cover of Paula Abdul…

Caroline Rose is as weird as the 80s–perfect:

And Greyskull is as synth-heavy as the 80s. PERFECT:
