The top 10 cirime songs of the 80s

The top 10 cirime songs of the 80s

    We posted our list of the top 10 crime-related songs of the classic alternative era on our Examiner page. The list includes tracks from The Pogues, The Police and Kate Bush. Check it out here.

    The Top 5 "End of the World" songs of the 80s

    The Top 5 “End of the World” songs of the 80s

      World destruction and the end of civilization have often been a theme for hit music, and the 1980s were no exception. As the Mayan calendar closes out on December 21, 2012 and some fear the end of the world is nigh, we put together a list of the top classic alternative songs of the 80ss:

      The top 11 classic-alternative Halloween songs

      The top 11 classic-alternative Halloween songs

        Amidst creating a perfect costume (after trying to decide whether I would prefer to dress as Rik from The Young Ones” or Baldrick) and creating this year’s Revenge of the 80s radio Halloween music special, thoughts of great autumn holiday songs of years past turn to inspire a list of the Top 11 Halloween songs of the classic alternative era. Criteria for this lineup includes song quality, Halloween themes, staying power and place in music history:

        11. “Pet Cemetery” – Ramones

        Ironically, the mellowest of the Ramones’ hits is the one they recorded for the 1988 horror thriller Pet Cemetery. The track closed out the flick, with the video featuring band members walking and playing amongst a graveyard. It was covered live by several bands, including Blondie during its fall 2010 tour.

        10. “Devil in My Car” – B-52’s

        The world’s top party band has a fun track for virtually all occasions, and this Halloween anthem comes complete with the Prince of Darkness changing seats and ripping up the upholstery. While the lyrics indicate they “don’t want to go to Hell,” Fred Schneider admitted (with the help of Kate Pierson) that the underworld was where they could have “the hottest time in the darndest place” in his solo cut, “Summer in Hell.” Schneider celebrated Halloween last year with the release of “Batbaby” with his quirky-cool band, The Superions.

        9. “Halloween” – The Dream Syndicate

        Steve Wynn’s signature voice adds an eerily enjoyable quality to The Dream Syndicate’s music, so why not a Halloween song? Recorded for their 1982 album, The Days of Wine and Roses, “Halloween” became a college radio holiday-time staple and continues to win airplay on alternative radio venues.

        8. “Halloween” – Siouxsie and the Banshees

        From their influential Juju album, Siouxsie and the Banshees convey the inner thoughts of a lost soul. While the subject reflects upon his/her life, Sioux’ voice hypnotically rings out “Halloween, Halloween” like a siren that could have also captured the great Odysseus. Juju also featured two other Halloween-worthy songs, “Voodoo Daddy” and “Spelbound.”

        7. “Dracula’s Tango” – Toto Coelo

        The all-girl quartet made eating cannibals sound sexy, so they followed it up doing the same with Halloween horror. Their formula of punchy lines and percussion scored them a fall dance classic. Lyrics like “Got to get my teeth in you/necking is the thing to do” can make a Halloween party hotter than the places where demons roam.

        6.”I Walked With a Zombie” – Roky Erickson

        While walking with a zombie might be inadvisable, Roky Erickson seems like the guy, aside from the Dos Equis’ “Most Interesting Man in the World,” who could pull it off. The founder of the 13th Floor Elevators suffered from mental illness for a while and later formed the science-fiction/horror-themed band Bleib Alien, which later became Roky Erickson and the Aliens. Among their celebrated cult creations is “I Walked With a Zombie,” which would later be covered by artists including REM, UK Subs and The Visitors.

        5. “I Was a Teenage Werewolf” – The Cramps

        The Cramps consistent homage to horror and sci-fi cult films increase the band’s prominence during the Halloween season. “I Was a Teenage Werewolf” is a reference to the 1957 Michael Landon film (yes, Mr. Ingalls himself). What places this track high on the Halloween list is Lux Interior’s brilliant and sensitive portrayal of a legendary hairy creature’s teenage problems, showing sensitive understanding of supernatural youth: “I had puberty rights/and puberty wrongs/no one understood me/All my teeth were so long.”

        4. “(Every Day Is) Halloween” – Ministry

        Before they became industrial/metal music titans, Ministry released several synth-pop classics, including their memorable “(Every Day Is) Halloween. It became a lament for the goth crowd, as the song ponders lack of acceptance for those who are not mainstream personalities. Ministry re-released the track in 2010.

        3.. “People Who Died” – Jim Carroll Band

        While not originally a Halloween track, its death theme and addition to the Dawn of the Dead (2004) movie soundtrack brought it to the season of warlocks, pumpkin pie and horror. “People Who Died,” from the band’s Catholic Boy album, is a tribute to his friends who passed before their time. Carroll did not sugar-coat the stories either, opening up with two tragic stories: “Teddy sniffing glue, he was 12 years old/fell from the roof on East 2-9/ Cathy was 11 when she pulled the plug, 26 reds and a bottle of wine.” The cut is also featured in The Basketball Diaries, a 1995 film based on Carroll’s life.

        2. “Dead Man’s Party” – Oingo Boingo

        Oingo Boingo’s name is as silly as its songs, yet, they were an excellent group of musicians. “Dead Man’s Party” is the title track to their fifth studio album (which also featured “Weird Science”), which was considered by many critics as its best-produced to date. While airplay comes mostly around the Halloween season, perhaps the track is best known for its prominence in the Rodney Dangerfield movie, Back to School.

        1. “Scary Monsters and Super Creeps” – David Bowie

        The name alone could merit placement on the top of many music-lover’s top Halloween songs lists. It also sounds like it could describe the group I ran with in high school, but I must digress. The 1980 album of the same name was a blend of Bowie’s recent foray into experimental music and a move back toward commercially-popular productions. This hybrid came together to form a critically-acclaimed history-making collection of songs that would influence and impact artists through today and, likely, beyond.

          The top 11 Horn/Sax solos of the 80s

          The top 11 Horn/Sax solos of the 80s

            The recent passing of Men At Work’s Greg Ham, who was well-known for his woodwinds work on some of the band’s biggest hits, inspired me to look back into the classic alternative era for its eleven most memorable sax and horn solos:

            11. Kirk Pengilly, Saxophone  — “The One Thing” (INXS)

            While sounding much like the lyrics’ “cat-call from the bough,” this sax solo was a fitting bridge to INXS’ international hit “The One Thing.” Kirk Pengilly’s performance in the video was fun to watch as he plays the riff while moving around on the floor like someone should call 911 as the band members infiltrate some kind of dinner gathering. Still, the sporadic quick fingers and the wailing end note became the track’s third hook, behind the flowing chorus and guitar melody, all together making the song a catchy, yet timeless tune.

            10. Phil Smith, Saxophone   –  “Love Plus One” (Haircut 100)

            Nick Heyward, Les Nemes and Graham Jones made Brit-pop music history when they invited Phil Smith to join Haircut 100 permanently after he did some work with them in the group’s beginning stages. The result: a smooth sax accompaniment and solo for their biggest international hit, “Love Plus One.” Smith’s sax became a staple of Haircut 100’s signature

            The top 50 classic alternative cover songs (#1-10)

              Our Revenge of the 80s Radio show is counting down the Top 50 Classic Alternative Cover Songs. The explanation and criteria can be found here in part one of our series. Here are the top 10:

              10. “Sweet Jane” – Cowboy Junkies

              In 1987, the Cowboy Junkies recorded The Trinity Session in Toronto’s historic Church of the Holy Trinity. The country/jazz/folk quartet included in the album this cover of the Velvet Underground’s 1969 version of “Sweet Jane,” which was a bit slower than the one that was released in 1970 and heard on several classic rock radio stations. The Cowboy Junkies changed some of the words around to offer a look at Jane from singer Margo Timmins’ point of view. Lou Reed praised their recording, calling it “the best and most authentic version I have ever heard.” “Sweet Jane” is among the over 200 songs the Cowboy Junkies play while on tour, as they like to perform different playlists each time they are on stage. The Trinity Session also includes the foursome’s twists on the classic hits “Blue Moon,” “Walking After Midnight” and “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” on the Trinity Session.

              9. “Kiss” – Art of Noise with Tom Jones

              This one came out a short time after Prince’s original. The Art of Noise produced this cutting-edge version of the pop hit and decided there was only one more way to make it stand out: bring in a prominent voice from an entirely different musical genre to sing lead…

              The Top 50 classic alternative cover songs (#11-20)

                Our Revenge of the 80s Radio show is counting down the Top 50 Classic Alternative Cover Songs. The explanation and criteria can be found here in part one of our series. Here are #s 11-20:

                20: “Jackie Wilson Said” – Dexy’s Midnight Runners

                Only Kevin Rowland could add extra swing to this rousing Van Morrison track with his distinct and energetic vocal style. This song was also the last bridge that connected the original “Rock and Soul” sound of Dexy’s Midnight Runners with a standout brass section to the more string-oriented incarnation the band became as it seemingly made the transformation within the 1982 Too-Rye-Ay album. They turned in a memorable performance of the song on The Young Ones’ “Bomb” episode. Dexy’s dissolved after their 1985 release, Don’t Stand Me Down. Attempts to reunite the band fizzled save for a 1993 one-off and a Rowland-led new lineup in 2003 that lasted for a short time. Most ex-Runners wound up as well-sought-after musicians as Rowland fought off drug addiction to re-establish his career. Side note: Dexy’s Trombone player “Big Jim” Patterson belted a superb solo on Paul Young’s hit cover of “Love of the Common People.”

                19: “Obsession” – Animotion

                This cover became an international hit for Animotion only one year after Holly Knight and Michael Des Barres recorded the original. For their heavy synth-power-pop sound, Animotion will always be remembered for this track and have, by some not-so-astute radio programmers, been considered a one-hit wonder even thought their follow-up, “Let Him Go,” cracked the Top 40 and “Room To Move” hit #9 in 1989. While the original was quite good, it received very little airplay. It is most likely that Animotion’s theme-costumed video propelled the cut into the top 10 thanks to it earning the band a heavy rotation on MTV.

                The Top 50 Classic Alternative Era Cover Songs (#21-30)

                  Our Revenge of the 80s Radio show is counting down the Top 50 Classic Alternative Cover Songs. The explanation and criteria can be found here in part one of our series. Here are #s 21-30:

                  30. “Stand By Your Man” – The Plasmatics/Lemmy

                  After a rather superb collaboration with the band Girlschool, Lemmy and the guys from Motorhead contacted The Plasmatics to do some work together. The result was an EP featuring Lemmy and Wendy O. WIlliams covering the gentle easy-listening country song “Stand By Your Man.” The cult hit did not, however, some without some in-studio turmoil: It reportedly took some time to get Williams’ vocal track down perfectly and Motorhead guitarist Eddie Clarke (who was producing the track at the time) quit the band in the middle of the recording session. producers Rod Swenson and Dan Hartman took over to finish the three-track EP, which included each band covering one of the other group’s songs. After Williams’ suicide, Motorhead dedicated a track from their 1999 live album, Everything Louder than Everything Else, to her. Lemmy continues to be a revered figure amongst rockers and has cameoed in several video. Butt-Head was right when he said: “He’s Lemmy. He can walk into any damn video he wants!”

                  29. “Spirit In the Sky” – Doctor and the Medics

                  This track was already considered on the cutting edge when Norman Greenbaum recorded it in 1969. He used heavy guitars with some tambourines, hand clapping and a gospel trio to give it a standout sound amongst the more mellow hits of the time. Fast Forward to 1986, when a UK band that was formed on a five pound bet made it their breakthrough hit. Doctor and the Medics earned heavy airplay on MTV that year, partially on the song’s merits and partially on the colorful video with th 8′ 8″ Doctor wearing heels and climbing up imaginary ladders. Currently The Doctor is playing gigs with his most recent Medics lineup and will be celebrating the group’s 30th anniversary in 2012.

                  5 Outstanding Alternative Love Duets (Examiner.com)

                  5 Outstanding Alternative Love Duets (Examiner.com)

                    The art of the love song combines the ability of the composer to poetically describe his or her inner romantic thoughts and that of the performer to convey them with added emotion. Some of the more memorable love songs from the alternative music world are duets between two artists with very distinct styles, yet making for a benign mix. Here are the five most outstanding of them:

                    “Interlude” Siouxsie Souix and Morrissey – 1994

                    Often criticized for being overly melancholy, Morrissey teams up with Siouxsie Sioux for a dreamy, emotional cover of the 1968 Timi Yuro track with hopeful lyrics (What seems like an interlude now/could be the beginning of love). The two distinct voices were magical and memorable enough to be listed as one of Spin magazine’s “Top 10 on-off team-ups of all time.” Unfortunately, Morrisey and Sioux had a falling out after recording “Interlude” and the track received little support from its label. Despite that, the song managed to reach 25 in the UK.

                    “Don’t Give Up” – Kate Bush adn Peter Gabriel, 1986

                    Kate Bush and Peter Gabriel scored a hit with their duet about a man who became unemployed and getting support from his loving wife during their tough times (I was taught to fight I was taught to win/ I never thought I would fail). Bush’s soothing soprano offers a sympathetic, yet encouraging tone (Don’t give up, we don’t need much of anything/Don’t give up because there’s a place where we belong). The track remains relevant today, especially in the middle of a global recession.

                      #35 – “Wild Thing” – X

                      A long time before Charlie Sheen starred in two hit comedy TV series, he was best known for his role in the movie Major League as Rick “The Wild Thing” Vaughn. In the movie (and its sequel), this track would play as Vaughn stepped to the mound.

                        40. “Hooked On a Feeling” – Doug and the Slugs

                        While originally done by B. J. Thomas, Doug and the Slugs‘ cover track resembled the style of 70s one-hit wonder Blue Swede, complete with the “Ooga-Chaka” backing vocals hook that took the song away from the easy-listening rack and into pop/rock history.

                          Toni Basil was best known for her his track “Mickey” and has long been labeled a “One-Hit Wonder.” She did, however, chart with “Over My Head” and “Shopping A to Z” and has been an extremely successful choreographer.

                            50. “Rock and Roll Music” – Mental As Anything

                            The Australian band Mental As Anything produced several hits in their native Australia and only had one song on the US dance chart before reaching international notoriety with a track on the “Crocodile Dundee” soundtrack.

                                10 Reasons for 80s Fans to Go to Chiller Theatre Halloween 2009

                                  A while back, I posted the breaking news that Louise Robey will be in person at this October’s Chiller Theatre in Parsippany, New Jersey to meet fans and sign autographs.

                                    Thomas Dolby, the man who brought new wave synth-pop to a new level, has a newly-released CD/DVD compilation out. It’s called The Singular Thomas Dolby, spanning his illustrious solo career.
                                    While Dolby is best known in the U.S. for his mega-hit “She Blinded Me With Science” and smash “Hyperactive” — the latter of which includes a real trombone rather than a synth-brass effect — Dolby has also been an astounding keyboardist and accomplished producer for several other projects. He wrote “New Toy” for Lena Lovitch, performed with 80s rockers Def Lepperd and produced musically divers artists like Joni Mitchell, Lea Thompson and George Clinton. I put Lea Thompson in there because I am one of the people who actually LIKED Howard the Duck and found Thompson to be a talented singer for Dolby’s Cube. “Howard’ never got a fair shake from the Academy (yes, the same “Academy” that thought Julia Roberts was so wonderful playing a bland hooker in Pretty Woman; these were dark days for the Oscars).
                                    Fans of Dolby will be happy to find his deeper cuts alongside the classic tracks (although they omitted “Howard the Duck”) and some bonus surprises on the DVD.
                                    As for future plans to tour: according to his official website, details for late 2009 concerts are to come.

                                    Here are the tracks for The Singular Thomas Dolby:

                                    The Top 10 Movie Soundtrack Songs of the 80s

                                    The Top 10 Movie Soundtrack Songs of the 80s

                                      A short while back, Revenge of the 80s Radio did a show featuring great movie soundtrack songs of the 80s. We featured some of the more well-known tracks as well as some of the more obscure. The question, however, of which movie soundtrack songs stood out from the others bore answering.

                                      In coming up with the top movie soundtrack songs of the 1980s, there needed to be an ironclad list of criteria due to the fact that there were several memorable pieces. The most prolific were decided by these standards:

                                      1. Their overall contribution to the alternative music genre in the 80s
                                      2. How memorable they were in the particular movies where they were features
                                      3. The song’s impact on the band’s success
                                      4. The song’s impact on the memorability of the movie
                                      5. The novelty factor of the song and its place in the movie

                                      Here are the top 10 movie soundtrack songs of the 1980s:

                                      10. “Far Side of Crazy” – Wall of Voodoo (Head Office)

                                      Before Mike Judge’s Office Space, Judge Reinhold starred in the hilarious biz-based movie Head Office, where he plays a newbie who wonders why he keeps getting promoted. He later realizes it is because they want to appease his father, a powerful Senator. The movie is a cult classic featuring such stars as Reinhold, Wallace Shawn, Rick Moranis and Danny DeVito. Wall of Voodoo’s first release after bringing in Andy Prieboy was played in the scene where the business guys were smoking pot in the back seat of a limo

                                      9. “My Male Curiosity” – Kid Creole and the Coconuts (Against All Odds)

                                      While most remember the Phil Collins song “Against All Odds (Take a Look at Me Now)” as the big hit from the move, Americans who were far too used to the regular Top 40 fare were first introduced to Kid Creole and The Coconuts through this hit movie. The multi-faceted tropical/new wave/alt-funk big band were making waves in the U.K. for several years before the 1984 movie came out.
