I'm in agreement-ish, but I do like that Oingo Boingo song. Someone in GS remarked they never got the love for Oingo, and I agree.  I think their local appeal down in LA, where they caught the ears of some A&R dude, propelled them onto a national stage, but I'm mostly like "meh." 

I had my Oingo Boingo phase, right after the 1988 release of Boingo Alive.  It was more a greatest hits album than traditional Live album (the songs we recorded live in studio with no audience), and it had an energy that really worked at the time.  I still listen to it now and again, and have a nostalgic response when they are played on the radio...

3/30/16 - Wednesday!  It's 1986

9. Oingo Boingo - Just Another Day

No. 9 appears to be a bust-out.
actually she played it in December (I knew we'd heard it before but I didn't think it was that recently)

I've been checking against an archive which I have not been updating regularly.  I knew I'd get
bit by that eventually.
