more Mork on voting --> Madness with "Madness". BOS7
Never heard this! That's one bad sax solo, though it kinda seems like he's doing it on purpose.

Mork talking doll --> "Lost in the Supermarket". VHM -- in a lesser set this would be a BOS contender but this has been quite fab today.

BOS from me, I always liked this song.
Now I'm eight bits...

The set ends with my BOS pick. Listening to this it's easy to hear where Byrne & Eno got the blueprint for Remain in Light.
Let's get right to it.

oh, but FAB song.  Benjamin Orr with the sweet vox, Eliott Easton with the usual blistering solo. Great song -- and I adored the first two Cars albums back then (still do).  I get that they're in heavy rotay (as the insiders say), but what they hey, it speaks, nay YELLS, 1979 to me, so Imma diggit lots.
 
Very good set overall.  I would've preferred Clampdown over Lost in the Supermarket, though.

nice observation. Have you seen this video of the THeads in concert in 1980?  Top of their game. Adrian Belew, Bernie Worrell round out the band here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-_PC6TlIhs

surprised about the Madness and Dire Straits tunes, which I had in the "I coulda sworn..." category.  It's an explosion of bustouts this week; I wonder what brought about this bounty.

I'd have said that about Lady Writer, to the point that I did go look in the Shraytabase to see if Dave had played it during that timeframe. Nope.
