|Song from '87 to '88|
I think there was a video, which I caught just as it was ending(of course after the title info disappeared), I remember black and white, single subject vocalist kind of shot. Even this was way back, '89 or so.
Around that time on alt rock stations, stuff like The Bangles-"Hazy Shade of Winter", or The Cure-"Why cant I be you" or were out. It was a much different sound than groups like these, I remember the guitar sounding almost country/rock-a-billy like, the kind of sound achieved when a guitar player uses a metal cylinder on their fingers while they play. I remember hearing it on an Alt rock station, and later in the early 90's on adult contemporary station, its a melancholy kind of song, but so good.
