Bangles - Going Down To Liverpool


C'mon... you have to admit, it's better than The Ballad Of Bilbo Baggins.

Underneath it all, it's basically an English folk song. It was done by Katrina and the Waves first.

and just what is the logical explanation for this?


i lived through the 80s, and the momentary reign of the Bangles on the top 40. why is this the first time i have seen it!? (and the last, i'll wager.)

You never say this?!?!? This was the first time I had ever heard the Bangles and there was much thee hubbub about thee Nimoy fellow appearing.

It was their first single and video on MTV. I want to say 1983 maybe even 4. That's just a guess without looking it up.

Re: Pee Ess
I was a huge fan of the Bangles around that time (saw 'em at the Paradise twice), but the YouTube post of the video is only the second time I've seen it, because I didn't have cable.

Highly Illogical !
I used to LOVE LOVE LOVE the Bangles. This is before the bigger hair and Susanna Hoffs being singled out as The Cute One.

Although Wikipedia says Nimoy directed the video, it was her mom that did. Read the link for the connection ! (And Cassavetes, too. It's a small world after all...)

amazing how even folky/rock stuff in the 80's had a linn drum machine.

I'll have to listen to it more closely. There's a definitely lack of normal trap drum sounds on it, but I assumed the accents were done with real toms.

And of course the Bangles, Go-Go's, and probably a lot of other "alternative" groups were getting the heavy-handed time-correction/trigger production treatment after their debut albums.
