Back in the Real World

Scott Miller tackles two years from the fabulous 1980s (1983 and 1985) in the latest double dose of MWH. Even though he doesn't have many nice things to say about that decade, he manages to compile two pretty decent playlists from those two years.

My one pedantic complaint about Scott's song selection is that he kind of played loose and fast with his years by including 1982 songs like Marshall Crenshaw's "Favorite Waste Of Time" ( b-side to "Someday, Someway") and this Bangles tune ("The Real World") from their debut EP on his 1983 list.

But cool songs are still cool songs, no matter what year they came out. One year after this, the Bangles had their first taste of fame covering another song on Scott's 1983 list thanks to this video they made with Mr. Spock. How fascinatingly illogical!
