I’m Shockingly Immature For My Age….You Stupid Bitch

I promised some 80s remixes for when I was in a better mood. And while my mood might not be better than it was yesterday, I don’t want to hurt as many people – so I guess that’s a step in the right direction.

Check the new logo. Everyone hates it but me. But it’s my blog so I win.

Spandau Ballet
Communication (Club Mix)
Gold (Extended Remix)
Only When You Leave (Extended Mix)
Paint Me Down (Live)
Since I’ve been talking about bizarre band names and their origins lately, did you know that Spandau Ballet are named after the convulsions that Nazi war criminals made while they were being hung at Spandau Prison? That’s what Wikipedia says. Of course, Wikipedia also calls them a soul band, so take that information with a grain of salt. Not one of my favorite bands but I’ve always loved “Gold”.

Talking Heads
Blind (Extended Remix)
Blind (Deaf Dub and Blind Mix)
Blind (Vocal Mix)
Don’t got much to say about these (other than that they rock and you should download them). Taken from the 12” single.

Work For Love (Extended Version)
I’ve always found it hysterical that Al claimed that he lost creative control over With Sympathy, which is why its a synthpop album and not the industrial mindfucks he would be known for later. That doesn’t explain the faux-British accent Al! And while he may sound kind of silly with it, it’s not as silly as anything on Rio Grande Blood. I think I’ve bashed that record five times now but I really can’t stress what I giant piece of rancid dog shit it is. This song isn’t great, but it’s always fun to hear this crazy early Ministry stuff.
