Shake it like a ladder to the sun
Makes me feel like a madman on the run
Find me, never, never far gone
So get your leather, leather, leather on on on on

You're a zero, what's your name?
No one's gonna ask you better find out where they want you to go
Try and hit the spot, get to know it in the dark
Get to know it whether you're a crime, crime, crime of love
Can you climb, climb, climb higher?

This is kind of cool. That buzzy synthesizer sound reminds me of the Whizzers I had when I was a kid.
Anybody remember Whizzers? 
 
Yea, I had a bunch of those things.  One was red and blue with white strips and stars.  I wonder if they are still buried somewhere in my moms house?

Missing Persons

Highly repetitive noise.  I can turn my table saw on to hear more interesting sounds.
OMG!!!!111 Thats's RP or not?!

Guilty pleasure! Don't know why, but it is.

Does anyone else find this cover erotic?

 

After listening to Karen O makes those sounds, anything looks erotic.

This band is so under-rated that is disheartening.  I think there is still a reluctance to give a female rocker due props.  I think it is precisely because she is the genuine article that this band has not been recognized as the truly revolutionary one that it is.  Even the savvy RP crowd cannot accept a female rocker.  It's sad.

 
Female rocker?  Where?  I don't hear a rocker of any gender.

Love the beat of this song - up to a 9.  And dancing...{#Dancingbanana}

YES!!  I've put my finger on it — this song reminds me of both Berlin & Missing Persons (no wonder I like it)

 
Ooooo - Berlin!  Have you heard their "Count Three And Pray" CD? Terri Nunn had so much fun exploring new vocal ranges and lyrical styles on this CD!  I love it - personal favorites are "Like Flames" and "Live A Little Trash." It's a total departure for Berlin, but it's a delight.

I guess it was only a matter of time till someone wrote the soundtrack for Paris Hilton's sex tape.
this song is growing on me — pop-a-licious!

6.5?!? Serious?!!?

This song is great; should make you jump up and kickoff something! Probably the best album released last year too.

This title needs to return to the section reviewing, for at least six months, to see what your panel of expert and very selective reviewers , 30 or 40 members, has to say or vote on these performances.

One of those bands that when I see them live I wonder "How did they get a record deal?" I mean they don't sound completely horrible in a studio, but then, well, you know what a studio can do.
Pretty annoying self-indulgent group imho.
This album is so, so much slicker and more "produced" than their earlier studio stuff, which I think actually more closely captured their wild-ass live performances. Frankly, I find them almost completely unrecognizable on this album as the punks they were back in 2004.

I'd call it positively orgasmic, but it's more like songus interruptus.  {#Shifty}

I'm crazy for sick minds, myself. This band too.

Just crazy for sick minds. This song reveals the moment of decay across the world of music, like all Ga Ga that roam around. Diversity  and ecletic does not explain everything, while, in parallel, RP is "deaf ears" to the music of renowned quality, but from other sources than the American "fashion" market. This is the drug of today. Bahhhh. RP, do not go there ......

NO NO NO..... man just a really bad string of songs here.... come on Bill... lets turn this streak around
putt'in my leather on right now!

Not feeling the GhostBusters but definitely the Siouxie part!  And that's a good thing.
this one grew on me...plus the video was shot in my hometown, so bonus points for the band's good taste...

I find it more like '90's Garbage, seems a bit too frenetic for 80's to me.  I'm just sayin'...

I really liked their last CD, but this song really annoys me.

More Yeah Yeah Yeahs..... Yeah!
 

What he said!
First time I've heard this on RP, but I've heard it a ton on the radio while driving, and I don't even drive that much. Definitely overplayed on ota radio.

Pass the ectasy.

 

Naw, I'm too old for that.  We tripped on MDA in the mid-70s and grooved to live Black American blues.


More Yeah Yeah Yeahs..... Yeah!
Quality 80s-ish tune.
cool tune
That girl has got verve.

More than once lately I've stopped what I'm doing to see who the artist is, and it's been the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. 

Off to download ...


Sounds great when played VERY loud.

Berlin?
 

and the whole lot of it's night life atmosphere
One of my favorite CD's of this past year.
Are the drums hexagontal?
Dreadful dreadful stuff, horrible singer, horrible band. Next up, I tell you how I REALLY feel - they suck.
This by far has some of the best comments for one of the worst songs I have
heard on RP, hats off to my fellow RP listeners!
Karen O'Jockstrap, Laird of the Dance!{#Dancingbanana}
This song is growing on me....like a fungus.

gimme a break - Bjork couldn't carry Karen O's jockstrap
 

I'm sorry, I read "Karen O" and "jockstrap" in the same sentence, imagined it was my jock strap, and had to excuse myself for a few minutes.

Reminiscent of Missing Persons with a little dash of Goldfrapp. 
 
YES Missing Persons...been trying to put my finger on this song for weeks :)

Thanks!!

<3 Goldfrapp, too.

I really liked Gold Lion, but everything else I've heard from this band just grates on the nerves.

Voice has always reminded me of Chrissie Hynde (Pretenders). Good band too.

I rate this.......0.....like the title.


Egads, the longer this goes, the more it grates on my nerves.  Not looking forward to this receiving heavy airplay...
Reminds me of an 80's song. Not saying that's bad...just sayin'
 
Doesn't do it for me, but tolerable
Boy, they're really smoothing out the edges. Much slicker production then e.g. Machine. Not bad.
I like it!
