T-T-T-Tokyo Girls

(no subject)

So I was just thinking, ugh, I'm too crazy to post another song, why would I even bother anyway, when I was suddenly reminded of a track I had on Now 92 that I've not heard for about thirteen years. I've not heard it for that long because as soon as I had more than six or seven albums in the whole world, you would have had to pay me actual money to sit through listening to it ever again; I made it through one and a half minutes on YouTube before giving up in disgust. Everything I own is better than that, and so, just about, is 'Everything I Own'.

Anyway, here's a much better song. Fuzzbox, or, to give them their proper, good and ridiculous 80s name, We've Got a Fuzzbox and We're Gonna Use It, basically sound to me like Jem & the Holograms would have if they'd just settled that silly feud with The Misfits with a nice tequila and some sex. My favourite song of theirs is their utterly cracked-out cover of 'Spirit In The Sky', but iTunes shuffle today declares you get the fabulous 'International Rescue', which is a marvellous mid-80s pop song about Thunderbirds. Not referencing it in a brief, tangential way, but actually about it. F.A.B. you're coming through - they need your help, no one else can do! I love the 80s.
