Thomas Dolby: She Blinded Me With Science.

I discovered today that EMI is very proactive about disallowing embedding of its videos. Too bad. There are a number of good 80's bands and songs that aren't very well known these days. A little publicity (very little on this blog, but still...) wouldn't hurt.

This is the song I went looking for, but there's no full video. The song is clipped here, but I do enjoy Timbuk 3 and this is pretty inspirational: Hairstyles and Attitudes.

The second verse, from here:
Razor cut, laser cut, chop-in-channel
Curled up, slicked back, hanging in the eyes
Parted left, parted right, straight down the middle
Scientists say your hair never lies
They've done lots of research
It may be just hype, but the latest findings cause me to tremble
They categorize us into three basic types
According to which of the three stooges you most closely resemble

Timbuk 3 is best known for this one.

And to top it off, Violent Femmes: Blister in the Sun.

Thanks for the memories! I do miss the 80's. And I don't remeber ever hearing that Timbuk3 song before.
