So another band I stumbled onto by accident...
80's New Wave and I like the three or four songs I've heard.
Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

I might have decided, or maybe not, that I should or shouldn't, depending on the issue or non-issue, to possibly share or not share, any thoughts, opinions, or facts (that might not be deemed factual by some), due to possible fear of any misinterpretation or retribution.

I don't know much of them beyond a couple of their hits "Let the Day Begin" and "I Still Believe".
I find it interesting that Tim Cappello (probably more famous for being Tina Turners sax player) actually covered the song "I Still Believe" for the Lost Boys Soundtrack, shortly after The Call released the song themselves. One of the few cases where I like the cover song a little better than the original....mostly because of Cappello's sax performance...which is saying a lot because I'm not typically a fan of horns in rock music.

Absolutely! One of the most underrated bands of all time, IMO. Their earliest stuff was edgier, almost punky--some of it could be covered by a metal band. They became more introspectively passionate as the time went by. Meaningful lyrics as well. Into the Woods is probably my favorite, but I do suggest trying to get into Modern Romans and some of the early stuff as well (not available on CD I believe, but some of it is in on a collection of early songs that is on CD). graybeardheadbanger

Great stuff. I have three albums. I like all of them, but my favorite of those is Into The Woods.
