Sure, it’s a bit dated (21 years or so), but here’s a video from David & David, “Welcome to the Boomtown,” the best somewhat-known cut from an under-appreciated album:
Every time I have iTunes make a random MP3 CD for me, one of their tracks seems to find its way on there, because Apple is all kinds of smart.
Except for that whole Apple TV venture.
And, uh, the way that there’s a bit of a major label backlash growing against their tyrannical market ways.
But when it comes to David & David?
Pure genius, baby.
Pure, sweet, 80s genius.

Although, you know, for my purposes it still takes some nice photos (and will continue to do for the next 50 years, because, damnit, I paid nearly $1000 for that thing).

Yes, my wee lass has forsaken the silly rhymes, hand clapping, and gooey-gloppity of modern kids’ fare, opting instead for the “70s-action-movie-chase-scene-horns meets cheerleaders meets some old school hip hop” goodness of The Go! Team.
Watch out, for when the first melodic riff of “The Wrath of Marcie” comes on the stereo, Fiona will be yelling “Yes, that one! That’s my favorite! I can’t hear it!”
It seems that, thanks to a rather nasty bug or two of some sort, I have been asleep since late Saturday night until 2:30pm this afternoon, only waking periodically to drink more orange juice or take another dose of NyQuil.
