8 March 2016: it's... 1994
« on: March 07, 2016, 09:30:43 PM »
I'm guessing the next 3 days will be some combo of '80s/'90s/'00s and then Friday will be a "Time" set for return of Daylight Savings.

ETA: Today is Int'l Women's Day -- don't think we've ever gotten a 10@10 for that, have we?

Nancy Kerrigan/Tonya Harding/Lorena Bobbit parody of Crash Test Dummies -- Weird Al?  A bustout, I'll wager.

ETA: yup. It's called "Headline News" -- oft-requested, it appears.

Alas, not. Instead we get 94, with what I am guessing is Weird Al's reworking of the CTD's Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmmm leading the parade.
Let's get right to it.

DMB under the table and dreaming -- and that's my cue to exit.

That was "Headline News" by Weird Al, according to Wiki...

Who needs news clips when you've got Weird Al?

VHM Liz Phair, Supernova.

Liking the clips ripped from the headlines instead of just car ads and sitcom clips.

VHM for Blur. Has a definite Elastica feel to it, which may not be a coincidence since Damon Albarn was dating Justine Frischmann at the time.

No need for Zombies. I don't like that line "and their bombs, and their bombs". Couldn't think of another word?

Uber-BOS Nick Cave "Red Right Hand." I don't think it's a bustout, but a great choice in any case.

Must be in a '90s mood, because I'm really enjoying this set.

VHM Nick Cave

Followed by Green Day, "Longview" (I think).  Also VHM.
