When thinking of another Musicology entry, I thought about other influential bands and songs that helped shape who I am. For that, I have to credit my parents, whose extensive record collection (all on vinyl) was the source of entertainment for me and my siblings for the first few years of our lives. Fortunately for me, my parents had pretty good taste.
Some things you hear about 80’s music is true. Bands would go out of their way to create the biggest hair possible. Reverb on drums was expected. Quirky filmclips stood out. Neon highlights or accessories were mandatory.
