Entertainment

Nope...never heard it.

Mudd Pack III

This one featured The Woodentops (from "Giant"), The Housemartins (from "The People Who Grinned Themsevles to Death), and 10,000 Maniacs (from "The Wishing Chair").

 

The only extraneous note is to The Woodentops "History", which says "I'm sure you've heard this before".  That was not a correct guess, however.

Seriously?  Isn't this a cover of a Monkee's Song?

Mudd Pack II: Hi David!

Entertainment

The second Mudd Pack features Sting (Nothing Like the Sun) and the Untouchables (Dance Party).

My friend had marked the following songs as songs she liked:

  • Sting's "Englishman in New York", "They Dance Alone" and "Straight to My Heart"   [I'm so sad to see the Oxford comma go away]
  • The Untouchables' "Steppin' Stone" and "Free Yourself"

Sunay Feb 7th: 7:07 she wrote "I have not done a spot of homework yet.  P.S. Still no Housemartins at the Beat.  Stay Tuned.  Mark Knopfler and Eric Clapton both play guitar on "They Dance Alone""  [The Beat was the record store she was working at, now that I think about it.]

(Sting Videos after the fold)
