Artist: Thomas Dolby

Album: Aliens Ate My Buick

Appears On (Mixes): Maybe Better You Should Hold Me Close Than Understand: The Best Of Thomas Dolby

Song Notes: This is another one I dug. One of the things about Aliens Ate My Buick is that it's probably the most all-over-the-map stylistically. Some faux-funk, some synthpop, some swing, some pop standard type stuff, mostly everything. A jazz combo actually covered this one. I don't remember who it was, though—I stumbled across it on Amazon one time, and thought it was kinda interesting. Anyway, though, I just thought that was pretty cool. I like the original a lot better than theirs, though, even though it was basically a similar arrangement and everything. -Rev. Syung Myung Me
