The Bangles

The Bangles. Great melodies. Susanna Hoffs.

No, seriously, check them out.


This performance hits me in my special place:

I Eternal Flame! Such a beautiful song.

I like The Bangles, but I don't understand the appeal of Walk Like An Egyptian. To me, its a silly song.

I would like the Bangles more, if I weren't so annoyed by Susanna Hoff's voice. I like "If She Knew What She Wants" a lot; great harmonies.

YouTube - The Bangles - If She Knew What She Wants

My favorite Bangles song is one of their more recent, and it's a cover of an Elvis Costello song. But I looooovve it!

I just learned today that Prince wrote "Manic Monday." Never knew. Crazy.

I know, right? It's not my favorite song by a long shot, but I love that Prince wrote it.

Please tell me you at least knew that Prince wrote "Nothing Compares 2 U" (I suppose the crap spelling gives it away).

... and "I Feel For You" (Chaka Khan), and "When You Were Mine" (Cyndi Lauper).

although maybe I'm just exposing myself as a child of the 80s, and it's only common knowlege to us old fogeys.

This sort of knowledge is always useful to win pub quiz nights....

And I was wondering how long it would take for someone to mention "The Allnighter"

Prince both wrote and performed "Nothing Compares 2 U." I guess you already knew that, but still. So, yeah, knew about Chaka Khan and found out about the Lauper song when I found out about "Manic Monday." Dude should've just made one of them into Camille and saved us the hassle, I say. Listening to especially "Manic Monday," it's now just so blatantly obvious that he wrote it. But without the prior knowledge, I obviously would never have just guessed it. So many of the era-specific hallmarks are there, but muddled by the fact that, you know, The Bangles are doing the song. Really good stuff.

Yeah, my original post read in a weird way that made it sound like those songs were solely written by Prince, but then I edited, because I'm enough of a nerd for it to bother me.
