THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

... 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.

I got handed a work thing last night, but Jim Steinman RIP.   Printer-friendly page   Send this story to someone

JIM STEINMAN, who wrote all the songs on “Bat Out of Hell,” Meat Loaf’s operatic, teenage-angst-filled 1977 debut album, which remains one of the most successful records of all time, died on Monday in Danbury, Conn. He was 73.  A fairly recent NYT story ostensibly about the Bat Out of Hell musical contains his credo: “If you don’t go over the top, how are you ever going to see what’s on the other side?” Rolling Stone has 10 essential Steinman songs, from Meat Loaf to Air Supply to Bonnie Tyler (because "Total Eclipse of the Heart" is a must) but they left out anything from the insane movie Streets of Fire, so I'll throw in "Nowhere Fast," which features Steinman's trademark song and a very young Diane Lane.

Like I hinted above, I was suddenly and totally swamped at work today, but I hope to be back tomorrow with more "news."
