  1. Gimme all your lovin’, all your hugs and kisses, too???

  2. No, I guess that would be “I’m gonna keep them, man.”

  3. That’s it—puzzle it out.  This one is tough.

  4. All I can think of is that song about rats and weasles and how can you sleep when something something something it belongs to them let’s give it back. Yadda yadda.

    But I just don’t think that’s it. And now that garbled mess is stuck in my head.

  5. Beds are Burning. That’s what I was trying to think of. Not weasles. Diesels. Deeeee-sels.

    Still ain’t it, is it?

  6. Hint: It’s one of the few tunes in which the song title and the most succinct review of the song are identical.

    And that’s not an Eighties song!  That guy with his throbbing bassline and his undulating torso was all over MTV in the early 90s.

    And yes, I peeked.

  7. Holy shit! I could have sworn this was 1989.  My memory is fading. 

    SI’s right.  It’s ‘91.  Apologies.

  8. Your new series: Talking Back to 90s Music, 1

  9. When was Captain and Tenille? Tony Orlando and Dawn?

    Because I think I quit listening right about then.

  10. See, I was going in this direction.

  11. What do you mean, you peeked, SI?  You peeked at what? As long as you don’t mean that you’re peaking.  Cuz I am, right now.  Oh, wow, the walls are breathing.

  12. Oh, wow, I looked at my hand, and there were a bunch of letters snaking through my veins.

    Spamword “forces.” Shyaaaa!!

  13. Ahhhhh, Billy Idol??

  14. By the way, he’s a kingpin, if he’s still wondering.  IMO, this song was the only good one on that CD.  Their previous record was a classic EIGHTIES record.

  15. Wow! This is the only one I’ve ever gotten…

    How about some more Talking back to early 90s music, XX? Made me feel kinda smart knowin that.

  16. If this is Talking Back to Early Nineties Music, then my guess is The Red Hot Chili Peppers “Give It Away” (recorded ‘91 but probably written ‘89 or so) What do I win ???

  17. Gimme cold shelter…

  20. Trying to find Uggs with a reasonable price tag? I know of a company that sells knock off uggs that are almost as good as the real ones! check out to find the company name.

  21. With winter around the corner sheepskin boots will start to hit the shops soon. Last year I bought a pair of uggs and was so impressed with them, that I intend to buy a second pair this year. The great thing is they’re cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Apparently this is one of the attributes of sheepskin that makes this material so versatile.
