Twice this week, the local radio station (one of those execrable Best of the 80s 90s and Today mutants) has played a song which is a cover of some 80s song that I never seem to remember until I get into work to write it down. This is one of those reasons why I wish I could bring my Clie to work in the secure facility – it has a voice recorder for these things.

Anyway, it sounds to me like Lisa Loeb is singing, and it’s a song from Erasure or some band from that era. Something that would have been on KROQ in 1986, for those that are from that particular milieu. Any help?

    Do you not remember any snippet of the lyrics? Usually a lyrics search is how I find these things out.

    I listened to KROQ from about 1976 until sometime in the eighties, when groups like X and Sex Pistols were blasted around Wendy O Williams and The B-52’s. Warm Leatherette and Jet Boy Jet Girl were all the rage. DJ “Dusty Streets” actually begged a friend of mine to play a demo of the group that I was in, funny that. He couldn’t get ahold of me, so it was never played.

    Anyway, I still have all of my X tapes, and some Plimsouls and The Motels, and Romeo Void, and all of that stuff I grew up with.

    Give me a hint?

    You sure it’s not Tori Amos? She’s fond of covering songs she shouldn’t….like when she covered Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. :-/

    Apparently it’s Sixpence None the Richer, covering Crowded House’s “Don’t Dream It’s Over.” Finally remembered the lyrics long enough to get them written down.

    Ahhh, how funny, I was going to suggest them, but I didn’t think they’d done any covers.
