I enjoyed a lot of Lou's 80's stuff. Fernando Saunders really added a lot on fretless bass
Lou Reed "I Remember You" 1986
Phil and Danny from the first and probably best Rembrandts album
The Rembrandts "If Not For Misery" 1990
A great opening track from the Producers previously unreleased album "Coelacanth". Finally released in 2001. For some reason the Boston Red Sox come to mind with those beards!LOL
The Producers "Primitive Man" -1987
In 1979 the Knack came on strong. Maybe too strong creating some backlash. But their first 2 albums are pure power pop classics..
"if you let her, though, she will break your ego and your heart..." oh yeah....
"That's What the Little Girls Do"
More Power pop, from the Greg Kihn Band
Greg Kihn Band- "Valerie" live 1981
