Good one, @RoosGirl

Yaz[oo] always takes me back to clubs in Montréal, and a sweet little French-Canadian girl.  The lapel pin she gave me of crossed American and Canadian flags is stuck right there in the upper corner of my bulletin board...but her name has faded from my memory, lost like the clasp of that pin.  I hate getting old and having whole chunks of my life sublimating from vivid solid memories into mere vapors drifting away.

I knew a sweet little girl like that, little bit of a goth, pretty as the day is long. She ended up suddenly moving in with some fellow and taking all my music (cassettes) with her. It hurt, but years later, all I remember is her pretty face (and my lost music).

I never got to see E.Costello, not really my full cup of tea, but did drive by him performing at the Fox in Atlanta one night. It was intriguing seeing an well dressed black youth trying to buy tickets to his show. Elvis had an wide appeal.

The early 80s also gave us Steve Martin playing a banjo.

The girl was brilliant... Loved her stuff for years, even got to see her in concert once. She kept reinventing herself.

80s Dance New Wave Rare/Obscure

This is where I post something that is not going to be remember but by a few folks. But I loved it, you may want to bury it in the ole litter box.

Dirk Darmstaedter (Real Name...German) became the lead singer of The Jeremy Days in the late 80s through mid 90s. He still makes music. If you have time, give this song a try, it is one of my faves now. The last 2/3rds of it are awesome (yes, I prefer the musical sections over the vocals). Wish there was a dub version released of it.

The Cure was an 80s icon in Dark Wave. But few know of the other group that sounded just like them, from instruments to vocals. Yep, with your eyes closed you would almost swear this was Robert. This little known gem of a group (The Essence) were from the Netherlands and their poor music label (Midnight Music) couldn't afford to promote them (and get them out for the public to buy). I lucked up and managed to get 4 albums of them perchance (in going out of business sale) in the early 90s. I will to remember to link an interesting video (for me anyhoo) with the fellow that ran Midnight Music at the end of this.

@dfwgator

I will put up a few songs by The Essence and let you the listener pick one, any one, to see if I am telling the truth (that they sounded exactly like The Cure but with original material).
