th 385 Playlist: Saturday Morning Flashback 10/30/10

Talking Heads

Saturday Morning FlashbackNo shortage of synthesizers in this show! Fortunately, they were put to good, solid, danceable use in songs like “The Politics of Dancing”, “Baby’s in the Mountains”,”Sweet Dreams”, and Roxy Music’s live version of “Like a Hurricane.” We recalled the unexpected U. S. military invasion of the little island of Grenada, covered some of the celebrity losses with Frank E. Lee’s Rock & Roll Obituary, and visualized a young Tom Cruise dancing in his undies as the Regular Guy revisited “Risky Business.” Next week on Flashback: 1979

    I love the flashback every week. It really “makes” my Saturday and jogs memories. I need your help in finding a song. When Rockpile broke up there was a song about splitting up the assets. One line was “you take the car, I’m on my bike”. I don’t remember the title or who wrote it. Please help me…Thanks
