I’m a GenXer, former latch-key kid, born in late 1969. I still lived at home while I worked and attended university in the late ‘80s/early ‘90s; meanwhile, my parents were living their best life, free of the responsibility of raising kids, hosting endless dinner parties, whooping it up, and playing a particular few CDs in their multi-CD player, namely: U2 (Joshua Tree), Paul Simon (Graceland), Enya (Watermark), and Enigma’s MCMXC a.D. - that was like the middle-aged parents’ ultimate party/entertaining music where I live, and I still feel nostalgic for that music, as it takes me back to a time when my parents were still young and vibrant and our house was an endless whirlwind of international guests, both long and short term.

"Seeds of Love" was a massive let-down, save for "Sowing," and I did quite like "Woman In Chains" a lot, its beautiful. The rest is pretentious, self-indulgent, adult contemporary bullshit. Well, so are the other two tracks, frankly. They went all soft and jazzy, and it broke my wittle new wave heart.

When "A Bell Is A Cup Until It's Struck" came out my head exploded. I was never the same. Life became performance art, a Surrealist game of charades. Life was just a big beautiful "happening" and everything is art. That's how Wire made me feel.
A Bell Is a Cup, It's Beginning To And Back Again (IBTABA), Pink Flag, Chairs Missing, On Returning, The First Letter = my soundtrack for living for many several years
"Kidney Bingos" is one of their best. Very melodious and catchy without sacrificing any of the quirks and weirdness that make Wire one of the most inventive bands of the era

Rocket's Tail (for Rocket)
Kate starts out a cappella with the Trio Bulgarka, then turns it into a heavy rock jam with Dave Gilmour, and dedicates the whole thing to her cat. Who but Kate would write a song about dressing as a rocket, and launching herself off of Waterloo Bridge? Amazingly, the disparate pieces of the song all work really well.

My real favorites from this era are albums. First is the first CD release of the Beach Boys' Pet Sounds. It took them 'til 1990, but they finally released it, and I returned to being a Beach Boys obsessive the way I was in the 1960s. There were subsequent CD releases of all the Beach Boys albums.
Second was the Phil Spector box set, Back to Mono, in 1991. My favorites are the Ronettes' "Be My Baby" and the Crystals' "Then He Kissed Me."
Third, and most important, is the Beach Boys' 5-CD box set Good Vibrations. All the hits and then some. Disc Two has the first release of the album that would have been called SMiLe. It's only 30 minutes long, but I had never known that "Heroes and Villains" was the basis of this entire suite of music. In its many iterations, SMiLe has become my favorite album of all time.

Love And Rockets "So Alive"
I was already a fan of Bauhaus and Love and Rockets. When this showed up on MTV I thought I had died and gone to heaven!

R163, when I first bought Foxbase Alpha I had only heard Only Love Can Break Your Heart, so I was disappointed to discover that Sarah Cracknell was not the same singer that appeared on that song, even though she was in the video that I saw (I found out much later that there was another video with Moira Lambert.) The album grew on me, and I soon grew to love Sarah. There are so many good songs on that album, I LOVE Like the Swallow, Springtime, and Girl VII, and the vocals at the end play tricks on my ears.
The repeated line is Carrie's got a boyfriend, but I tend to hear it alternate between that and Paris is a playground

Amazing that they put together a singing group of 3 blond gaylings in the 80s. I wonder if the three of them every got down together after a show. Since they weren't allowed to come out the best way to keep their secret would be to turn to each other.

My Bloody Valentine's album "Loveless" blew my FUCKING MIND when it dropped my freshman year of college.
I had had a really lame dorm-mate who suddenly moved out of the room after a month (I have no idea what ever happened to them and didn't care). After that, I had the room to myself the rest of the year. So I hung up scads of Christmas lights and I would get really high and listen to this album on repeat, very, very loudly.
I was so excited when the band came through our college town that year, opening for Dinosaur Jr. It was incredible. An hourlong wall of sound with all these projected visuals bouncing off of every surface in the club, a kaleidoscopic frenzy of pinks and purples. I wasn't even on anything and yet it was like the most euphoric, sensory-heightening acid trip you could imagine.
I was in the pit for MBV 's performance and then I went up to the balcony and fell asleep during Dino. Which is quite a feat, as Dinosaur JR is loud as fuck. I think I had stayed up all night the night before, cramming.
Happy, happy college memories x

Echo & the Bunnymen - "Lips Like Sugar" (1987)
[quote] Initially dismissed by Ian McCulloch as too commercial, "Lips Like Sugar" became a chart success in the UK, Ireland, and New Zealand. Despite not charting in the US, the song has become one of their most famous songs in America, thanks in part to college radio airplay and its music video directed by Anton Corbijn, which was regularly broadcast on MTV's 120 Minutes programme.
