I hope the years have been kind to Ms. Carlisle aka "Dottie Danger". She and Susanna Hoffs sure where cuties back in the day....
Happy memories of me and my better half. I didn't really start listening to pop music until the 80s. It was classical and jazz for me til then. I caught up on all the 70s bands in the 80s...and the Beatles, too. Better late than never, I guess.
The Heads at the Greek in Berkeley = a peak experience, concert-wise.
I saw the Talking Heads at least twice. The first time was in college about 1978-79, and I was third row center, one of the best seats I've ever had at a concert. David Byrne was making his faces right at us, and it was a bit hard to keep from laughing at times.
Several years later I saw them in Philly, with an extremely pregnant Tina Weymouth on bass.
I liked Belinda Carlisle better when she was a little chunky, before she went all PETA and everything.
I have noted here before that I watch The Last Waltz about once a week here in Mauritius. I brought two other movies with me. Stop Making Sense and Fleetwood Mac's The Dance.
I can hear groans over the Fleetwood Mac choice, but it's the one with the USC band at the end, doing Tusk. Back when Belinda was cute and chunky, I was living in Orange County. I also had season tickets for USC football.
My teenage kids love Stop Making Sense. You can hear it blasting from my daughter's car when she pulls into the driveway. My wife gives me the stink eye everytime.
@Mike - Isle Maurice? What an island! Did you know that Polish chanteuse Basia's backup singers are from Quatre Bornes? How well I remember Vacoas.
But! No one wants to point out how stunning the Wilson sisters are? Even today though Ann has put on weight, she's a gorgeous big woman. And Nancy! Those eyes, that guitar playing. What a babe. And a lot of great songs.
I graduated HS in 1980, graduated college 1985 and was a single professional in Hotlanta until 1996. Good times, good music, fun cultural background coming out of the dreary Nixon/Ford/Carter years. Very first vote ever was for Reagen...no brainer.
