And now I'm remembering that Robyn Hitchcock song about the balloon man.
Geez, I haven't listened to Black Snake, Diamond Roll in eight years. There it sits in my record collection, moldering along with the Soft Boys and the Chameleons UK.
I watched some eighties videos on Vh2 the other day and just felt sad. Did we really think this was all important? I actually have some of the things on tape...
My wife enjoyed the references, but my dead wife was unimpressed.
Of course, she's still wearing flares, so take that with a grain of salt.
