Anyway, here's this week's music selection. This time, it's AN ALL—EIGHTIES—EXTRAVAGANZA!!
Prefab Sprout — Appetite
I'm not quite sure how to explain why I like this. I suspect it has something to do with the female vocal that's keyed to the synthesiser. Or the line "If you steal - be Robin Hood". Or maybe it's this: "Wishes she could call him heartache / But it's not a boy's name." Download it and see what you think.
The Railway Children — Somewhere South
More jingly-jangly pop that owes more than a little to Orange Juice and Aztec Camera, with a dash of New Order thrown in for good measure (the group started out on Factory Records, the record label of Choice, after all).
