Artist: Barnes & Barnes

Album: Amazing Adult Fantasy

Appears On (Mixes): Rise & Shine Or You're A Goner: The Best Of Barnes & Barnes; Revme.Vox.Com

Song Notes: Revme.Vox.Com: And here's the other half of the two-fer! I know, I just posted a Barnes & Barnes song a few days ago, but Barnes & Barnes are wicked good, so whatchugwinedobouddit? This is from Amazing Adult Fantasy, which is probably my favorite Barnes & Barnes record (and unlike Sicks, still available for purchase at, and it's a cover of the Sonny Bono/Cher song. Actually, the reason these two songs got posted is that on LJ, goethe_re_scape posted a few songs, including a Petty Booka song and Petula Clark doing "Bang Bang"; I replied mentioning both the songs I posted today, and he said he hadn't heard either. Which is a terrible tragedy, which must be rectified. So here we go! Anyway, this is a sorta punk-flavored version of the song, which Art Barnes has said is inspired by the band Fear, whom Barnes & Barnes were really digging at the time (and probably still are, really). This and their other Fear-inspired track, "I Hate The Boss" have made me really interested in checking out Fear, since those are really great Barnes & Barnes songs. (And, hey, their version of DEVO's "I Desire" re-written as "Positive Life (Before You Leave)" made me get into DEVO and, well, I'm a HUGE DEVO fan, so... it's pretty established that Barnes & Barnes have got good taste.) So, here it is—check it out! It's pretty grand.
