    Great minds think alike and so do we. I went on a total Squeeze video binge last week. At one point, I had the lead singer’s haircut (different video).

    It was this haircut. Yikes!

    August, 1987, the Meadowlands, dancing to/singing along with Squeeze. That was me in the teal parachute pants with the white Capezios, pouring out my soul.

    Thanks, H-Ann.

    Beat me up with your letters, your walk out notes.
    Funny how you still find me, right here at home,
    Legs up, with a book and a drink.
    Now is that love that’s making you think?

    Difford & Tillbrook … brilliant pop songwriting.

    This cut sounds more like a Beatles tribute try-out tape that doesn’t make the second round. I think Elvis Costello tightened up some of their stuff later on. The only thing I remember, though, is their radio/ iconic “Tempted,” which for some reason I associate with the 1982 World Series, with the Cardinals and Brewers. This may be why it’s coming back to me now.

    Go Tigers!!!

    (Baseball-related non-sequitur.)

    I haven’t watched baseball for probably the past 7 years, but when your team is in the pennant race & there are extra innings, it is fun!

    (Games are on too early out here in Western time, though. Who the heck can make a 2:18 start time?)

    I can never remember which was Difford & which was Tillbrook. I think Tillbrook is the nicer looking blonde guy, right?

    I’ll raise a cold Vernors to that sentiment. I always liked those Tigers uniforms and Comerica Park is one of the better of the new ones. Definitely don’t want to see the T. Rangers and Milwaukee playing under a dome!

    Back to your regularly-scheduled thread…

    I am totes on board with this 80s nostalgia trip!

    I just said the other night to one of my colleagues that if I ever left my job I’d just put a recording of “Black Coffee in Bed” playing in the last department faculty meeting of the year (instead of attending). My colleague was utterly confused by the reference…damn young’uns!

    Best concert I ever went to — hours of Jules Holland on the piano and general singing in the stadium. AND Oingo Boingo was the opener. Ahhh, the 80s…
