The Big Bounce

Sure, everybody knows (and writes about) the Talking Heads / Clap Your Hands Say Yeah comparison, but this tune by 80's no hit wonder Altered Images really reminded me of CYHSY's happy new wave bounce. Might even be a nice cover for them. This song was featured on the Sixteen Candles soundtrack (when it was on TV!) apparently, the movie has been released with a host of different scores and soundtracks. Did this used to be common? Seems like more trouble than it's worth.

Since the season has once more come around and I initially thought that "Happy Birthday" was a Waitresses' song, I have included their infectious trademark Christmas number. Definitely one of the better things that we are forced to hear over the holidays. Love those horns! I bet Lionel Richie does too.
