Bookended by Cats was named after Milo and Otis. They are the short, orange, and furry brothers who, upon entering our lives in 2003, often bookended us on our couch. And who are we? We're a geek couple living in PA. We love music, movies, TV, comics, books, and comic cons. And, from time to time, we'll share our thoughts on these nerdy things.

Friday 80s Flashback for May 31, 2019

[Concrete Blonde] -- Depending on the resource, Concrete Blonde's self-titled debut album is listed as released in either 1986 or 1987. Either way, it is over 30 years old this year! I cannot quite recall when I first heard of Concrete Blonde, but I do know that "Still in Hollywood" still makes me rock out. While "Dance Along the Edge" is one of the most honest songs of the decade ("Can we promise love? Is it all too much? And do our old souls still believe it? It's insane the way we dance along the edge"). Yeah, Concrete Blonde got more notoriety in 1990 with "Joey," but this debut album is the one that has staying power for my money.

Once again, I remind you that the rule of three applies when doing Flashbacks. As I've made my three offerings, that's all till next week. Dedicated 80s-philes can find more flashbacks in the Prophet or Madman archives or via Bookended's 80s Flashback tag. As always, your comments are welcome on today's, or any other, flashback post. And if you like what I'm doing here, please share the link with your friends. If, however, you don't like the flashback, feel free to share it with your enemies.

I'll see you in seven!
