Song of the Day

I remember listening to this album on my father’s Marantz stereo receiver in 1983. I found the whole album so futuristic (and also quite romantic) and one could argue that it was ahead of its time. Here is Cloudburst at Shingle Street from Thomas Dolby. Doesn’t really get more ‘80s than this, folks.

Find yourself hankering over some sweet, clean synthesizers straight from the ‘80s but actually from the ‘90s? Portland, Oregon act Glass Candy can deliver that in spades. Here they are with Life After Sundown. Your ears will feel like they’ve been rinsed out with sparkling water and strobe lights after you give this one a listen.

Who better to usher in the angst of the ‘80s than UK poet and dark/new wave pioneer, Anne Clark. Here she is with Sleeper in Metropolis. If this isn’t a time-sound machine direct to 1983, I don’t know what is.

On a personal note, today marks 1.5 years of sobriety. I can now say years, plural. Not too shabby, if I do say so myself.
