Pick for the week of July 9th
Here's what I said then:
Well, I finally got over my fear of disappointment and listened to some solo Buckingham, and you know what: it's pretty good! Despite the very 'of its time' sound, this is an addictive and uniquely Buckingham take on the eighties pop song. It has a way of instantly feeling nostalgic and cheesily touching, even on the first listen.
A crazy video (possibly set in rock and roll heaven?), shows off Lindsey's down-right adorability with his floppy hair and ten inch shoulder pads (still a good sport, Mick play drums for him). I'm falling more and more in love with this song even as I write this… I should never have doubted my curly haired golden boy.
P.S. This video is nuts and also worth a watch… His head spins around after he throws away a jack in the box with himself inside of it–just watch. Plus he's a bit thinner and eye-lined, which is way hot.
