My Music Monday

The theme this month is the title track. I'll take it a step further this week:  band name, album name, song title are all the same.

Talk Talk.

In 1981 their debut single and album were "Talk Talk".  I. Loved. the Song.  I still do.

Actually, the band had a few great songs - not all singles - that I loved.  "Life's What You Make It", "Such a Shame" and "Renee".  I used to love "It's My Life", but No Doubt pretty much ruined that song for me for life. Somethings never need to be remade. Ever.

Yes, Talk Talk was an '80s band, but they were more the leaders in the synth-pop world that others would copy to with lesser talent, but sometimes with more success.

I still like the song.

Takes me back to the dance floors of my pretty boy days.

I think I'm the opposite of you on this, I prefer No Doubt's cover these days. I do think Fred/1stWave is to blame partially for that though.

But I still love Talk Talk's "Talk Talk" though.
