25 September 2013 – The Bangles – Hero Takes A Fall (and Gilmore Girls) – over on Wicked Guilty Pleasures

The Bangles are one of my favorite bands of all time.  Those four women are among the most underrated musicians of all time.  This early song, which isn’t as big a hit as some of their others, including ones we might have featured on this blog previously, but it’s a fun, off-kilter romp with clever wordplay.

Those of you who don’t know me so well are going to be a little surprised by this next statement. Those who do know that I think Gilmore Girls is the greatest television show of all time.  I will argue that point with anyone.  Neatly walked the line between drama and comedy better than any other show in history.  Expertly and complexly developed and imperfect characters.  Lauren Freaking Graham!

Anyway, the Bangles appeared on the show, and performed two songs – this one, and, coincidentally, Eternal Flame. From Season 1, Episode 13.  And yeah.  I just knew that.

By the way, here they are on Letterman performing the song live in 1984.  You know, when music on TV was actually live.
