I don't think I've linked Project RnL here before, they're a prog rock band from Israel. Pretty good musicians, and not bad with the arrangements:

I love cheerful, hooky, poppy rock, and I like all-girl bands, and Silent Siren hits all of that. I've been listening to them a ton the last two months.

This was a very cool. Surprisingly so, given I'm not really a fan of the original.

DJ Supermarkt has done some really good edits/remixes. His Too Slow to Disco compilations are fun.

i'm really digging on her stuff for the most part, there's some tracks which are not as good as others. and then there's this shit, which is something else. video is goth nick cave goofballs stuff that doesn't do it justice. i would have done a better job. anyone would have.

Every one could cut to the shit and fire up Priest=Aura, the best 90s album.

This is one of the laziest tracks The Church did, but it's still gold.

The new gym I go to has a playlist of approximately 15 songs (there are times that I hear songs 2-3 times in 90 minutes), so perhaps it's just Stockholm Syndrome, but this song by The Killers is pretty damn good:

Pick the more horrifying 80s abomination:

Pete Townshend - Give Blood. Pete's makeup, 5 backup singers, 2 drummers, a horn section, a headless/fretless bass, and cuts/transitions that are physically painful. Oh, and David Gilmour for some reason.

Spirit - I Got a Line on You. There are actually more people on stage than in the Townsend video (including Bob Welch and Jeff goddamn Baxter on a plexiglass guitar), the clothing, the transitions, the atrocious mugging for the cameras...

I say it's Spirit by far- I actually like Give Blood ok, but that Spirit is a quintessential example of 80s nostalgia for the 60s and how poorly it aged and mixed. I mean, you could maybe say something similar about aging icons Pete Townshend and David Gilmour getting together along with the superficial trappings of soul, but at least they bothered to play a new song and went for a different sound.

Bolded fun fact I did not know 'til today:
Jeffrey Allen "Skunk" Baxter (born December 13, 1948) is an American guitarist, known for his stints in the rock bands Steely Dan and The Doobie Brothers during the 1970s and Spirit in the 1980s. More recently, he has been working as a defense consultant and chairs a Congressional Advisory Board on missile defense.
