  1. Because sometimes you need a throwback, y’know? 
  2. There’s a couple other ‘stripped’ versions of stuff by them on this list, but this is the best one. 
  3. This piece is just so delightfully weird, and so quintessentially 1980s, I love it. 
  4. Go listen to the Song Exploder episode about this one. 
  5. I found this album by way of the background music to an Instagram video, and I’m remembering that I tend to prefer covers of popular songs over the originals.
