A lot of people make fun of the 80’s. Big hair, shoulder pads, the moog. Personally, I LOVE the 80’s. They don’t get enough credit. Sure, Led Zep, the Beatles, the Who were all pretty important to music from the 60’s and 70’s. However, many 80’s bands influenced a lot of what is going on today just as much as the classic rock greats. Peter Gabriel, Genesis, Tears for Fears, Prince, the Police, the Cars, U2, Hall & Oats (don’t tell me that Rich Girl isn’t catchy). Lars found the band Francis and the Lights on itunes’ “ping” feature. Lars saw that Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) said that the Francis and the Light record was his favorite album of the year. Turned out that Justin was right. The album is Awesome! To me, it’s a modern-day version of Peter Gabriel with a hint of Tears for Fears. I’ve embedded a music video that they made. The cool thing about the video is that it is performed live and recorded in 1 shot with the camera. Hope you like it………..
