From the Buffalo music scene (and College Radio WBUF) of the 80's, these were essential....

The Fems - Go To A Party :shock:

and, even though it sounds like this was recorded in someones basement on a cassette recorder, it's a great ballad...

Here is a real oddball....This was one of many oddball \"songs\" that Pete & Geets would play right before Stafford would read the news..probably to throw him off. Others included Wierd Al's \"Mr Frump and his Iron Lung Machine\" and the dude screaming into the drive-thru speaker trying to order \"a cheeseburger, fries and a large orange drink.\"
Anyway, here's Was (not Was) \"Dad, I'm In Jail\"....Enjoy.

S -

Back in the early 80's they used to have a 'classical' show called (I think, Masters and Moderns) hosted by Dave 'Doc' Hight.

Good call. Apparently Hans Zimmer based "You're so Cool" on
"Gassenhauer".

"The Carl Orff piece that Zimmer paid homage to was popularized in Terrence Malick's stunning first film, Badlands. Anyone who's gone to film school knows this film and the music. True Romance was supposedly some kind of a homage to Badlands."
