My new current favorite record ever

don't look at me like that
Different Light by The Bangles

Pure pop heaven.

When I was in junior high, my friends, many of whom had mullets and were far cooler than I, were keen on starting a band, for which they had come up with the memorable name “Dark Nightmare”. One fellow wanted to play guitar, another wanted to play drums, another wanted to play bass. I asked if I could be the singer, but no, they already had the singing covered. I said, “Well, can’t there be more than one singer? Can’t different people sing on different songs?” No, I was told. “Why not?”

“Because we don’t want to be like the Bangles!”

Heaven forbid!
