Friday Five

Right now I'm reading Are We Not New Wave?, which is all about new wave in the late 70s to mid 80s. It's a pretty interesting read for someone like me who is a big fan of music from that time. The author goes pretty in depth in analyzing certain songs, which creates a sort of playlist to go along with the book. Some of the songs covered:

  • Just What I Needed- The Cars
  • Rock Lobster- The B-52s (a song I really hate)
  • Planet Claire- The B-52s
  • Uncontrollable Urge- Devo
  • Cars- Gary Numan
