Wayback Wednesday - Mariah, Warren G, TFF

Ah the 80's. So care-free. So fashion ignorant. So much stirrup pants. I miss the 80's, mostly because it marked the last time I was clearly younger than the bands I liked. The 80's gave us some great TV (A-Team, Facts of Life), great movies (Top Gun, Commando), and of course, great music.

Tears for Fears is the kind of band you either love or hate. No one casually listens to Tears - they're too maudlin to throw on during a party, or have in the car unless you really love them. A recent outing to the Media Club reminded me that under the right circumstances one could in fact dance to these wildly coifed malcontents.

Tears for Fears - Everybody Wants to Rule the World

Back when Gangsta Rap became the scourge of white suburbia, a new sound was emerging from the West Coast in the form of mellow advocates Snoop Dogg and the vastly underrated Warren G. Add the smooth tone of Nate Dogg and you had the anthem for 1993.

Finally, a tribute to that group of drunk 20-something guys down at the beach who were busting out the Mariah - you guys rocked that pile of sand! And when Ms. d'Hibou got up on the bench and broke it down, well - Summer Anthem '06.
