WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Furious 7 tops the chart again with 18.3MM, the first movie to top every weekend in April since The Hunger Games. It is also the third film ever to break the bioon-dollar mark.  Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 defies the critics to place with 15.5MM, which means it might actually profit in thearters.  The opening of The Age of Adeleine shows with 13.4MM, which is probably fine against a 25MM budget with an A- Cinemascore.  Home holds onto the fourth slot with 8.3MM, though it's worldwide gross of $299MM is still likely short of profitability as Avengers 2 arrives to invade the family market.  Unfriended rounds out the Top 5 with 6.2MM on a 61 percent drop, but 25.2MM domesticv against a 1MM budget is a fat ROI.

... with THE BANGLES!  There's no better way to start than with these live takes on "Hero Takes A Fall"  and Kimberley Rew's "Goin' Down To Liverpool" for Dave in 1984. It was that sort of rawk (and the hotness of Susanna Hoffs) that got Prince to give them "Manic Monday," their first mainstream hit, from the A Different Light album, which included Jules Shear's "If She Knew What She Wants," Alex Chilton's "September Gurls," and -- inevitably -- Liam Sternberg's "Walk Like An Egyptian."  Nevertheless, their fondness for the genres of the mid-60s was still evident in their take on Simon & Garfunkel's "Hazy Shade of Winter" for the Less Than Zero soundtrack, and the psych-garage-bubblegum of "In Your Room" on the Everything album, which yielded their final No.1 hit, "Eternal Flame."  The draw from the 60s is a constant I saw them in a club, on a big stage and in a club again -- the last time was at a House of Blues, where they covered the We Five's "You Were On My Mind."  However, I'll confess that I put off featuring the band for about a bit, until the Susanna Hoffs solo cover of Bad Company's "Feel Like Makin' Love" popped back up on the Tube after an absence. That woman knows how to shake her tambourine.
