On Vox: 80s Music Friday

Also, while I'm thinking of it, it's 80s Music Friday!

This is one of my all-time favorites. When Otis and I were trying to figure out what to do band-wise after the Elvis Costello cover band didn't work out, I tried to convince him and Mike that we should learn this song. I learned the bass part and had a ball in the basement playing along and singing the "FOUR THREE TWO ONE.." part. The dog thought I sounded awesome.

One of my favorite things about this song is the drums during the verses. I love the "bump - psss - bump - psss" that goes so well with the droning guitar, and then the bass layers in there so nicely.

I always look for this at karaoke, because I think I could rock it pretty hard.
