Radio 80, side B, track 12: "Cars" by Gary Numan

Oh, Gary Numan, while I don’t have any particular memories of this awesome song, I certainly understand the sentiment.  While I don’t know anything about cars in general other than how to start one, how to use the radio and generally how to change a tire on one, they’ve been a huge part of my life.   306 more words

Radio 80, side B, track 10: "Harden My Heart" by Quarterflash

Oh, Quarterflash, this was just a teensy bit before I started really paying attention to music and the radio.  If I’d been born just a few years earlier and I’d heard this song in my formative years, I would have been completely in love with you and your sax and I would have promised the radio gods that if they’d just let me meet the woman behind that voice, I’d promise to make sure I’d never do anything so that she’d have to harden her heart. 16 more words

Radio 80, side B, track 9: "When I Come Around" by Green Day

Oh, Green Day, wow does this bring me back.  This song was in HEAVY rotation on MTV my freshman year of college.  And as with most songs I’ve listened to on here, I paid zero attention to the lyrics.   175 more words

Radio 80, side B, track 8: "Little Red Corvette" by Prince

Oh, Prince, you make a good argument for censorship.  I’ve probably said it before on here that while I’m all about free speech, there’s something to be said about how censorship can really bring out the creativity in someone like you.   143 more words
