I would recommend going to your favorite used music store (where they sell used CD's) looking in the compilations area and buy any CD from the Rhino New Wave series, stuff on the Oglio label (Richard Blade Series), most anything on the SPG label (Hardest

Tougher to guess your taste (Lou had more of a theme going). But what the hell, I'll give it a try.

If you like Devo, then try...
B-52's (Planet Clare, Roam, Private Idaho)

If you like Blondie, then try...
Talking Heads (Wild Wild Life, Once in a

Aww geesh.

I love Wang Chung!!

Try Wang Chung, especially Fire in the Twilight. That song is only found on the breakfast club soundtrack.

Another awsome song is Don't Let Go.

Look for the album:
Live and Die in LA. (its a soundtrack)

Did the Damned do "Jet Boy Jet Girl"? I thought "Jet Boy Jet Girl" was the english version of "Ca Plane Pour Moi" by Plastique Bertrand (a la Nena's 99 Luftballoons/99 Red Ballons).

BTW sorry for dissing Wang Chung. Dance Hall Days is a great song

My original recollection was that I ripped Jet Boy Jet Girl from the Damned Damned Damned vinyl of 1977. However, now that I look at it, I see I got it from the Best Of of 1981, after '78's Ca Plane whatever. And Deprijk is definately listed as the compo

Well, well, looks like we're both right! A little research yielded the following:

French song: Ca Plan Pour Moi
Janet from atxf says of this song: "CA PLANE POUR MOI" by Plastic Bertrand, which (supposedly) translates to "This Life's for Me."

You could try some UK indie from the mid-80's - visit my site at www.indie-mp3.co.uk to download a few.

Sorry - I couldn't resist the shameless plug!

After listening to the lyrics in the English version, I think I'll stick with the French, s'il vous plait.
