Saturday Music Club on Monday: Waters Rising in Northern Cali edition (part 2)

...my brother, James Eric Mason, had answered earlier, and had been reminded of another Nina Simone recording, even if he might've thought of David Bowie's cover first:

Kelly's were:

and (interesting how many fugues are inspired by rain)

and Massive Attack's "Pray for Rain" and, as did one of Sarah's direct correspondents, the Jesus and Mary Chain's "Happy When It Rains"

and one I'd linked to in a previous Saturday Music Club

I remember Thompson Twins for just two songs — "Hold Me Now" and "Shout". We listened to these numbers in the early to mid-eighties which had some of the best Grammy songs that I still listen to.

"Shout" was actually a Tears for Fears song, but a pretty similar sound and set of haircuts, to be sure!

Oops, my mistake. How could I mix up the singers? But I listened to both anyway, along with a whole lot of others including Baltimora, A-ha, Tina Turner, Boy George, Berlin, Dire Straits, Cyndi Lauper, Lionel Ritchie, Diana Ross, Alphaville, Stevie Wonder, WHAM!...you get the drift, Todd.
