The Wang Chung and Cameo covers were inspired. Hearing Cameo launch into 1985 was great.
It reminded me of the old, sadly short-lived VH1 game show Cover Wars. In one segment, each cover band had to redo various songs in different styles. "OK, do '1985' as a funk song" would have fit right in.
HoJo is always terrific. Don't miss the chance to see him live.
Looking forward to Greg Kihn.
Does anyone know where I can snag mp3s of the covers from this show? Or of sites with recaps (or mp3s) from the British version?
I gave it 2 episodes, & can't get behind it. Some of it's funny, but it has none of the acerbic edge that AD has. All of the parts involving the woman & the daughter are just way too sappy for my taste. It's a shame.
