This playlist from 1989 started out as a mix tape of songs that reminded me of a dude I was crushing on. 25 years later I can not be certain which dude it was but the generous amount of Camper Van Beethoven have it narrowed down to one of two. Ahh, memories…faded, vague memories.
A New Crush Remembered (1989)
I have always had a special place in my musical heart for Camper Van Beethoven from the first time I saw them open for R.E.M. to the later tours at First Avenue. David Lowery went on to form the equally loved band Cracker and he is probably one of the top 5 musicians I have seen most often live. While CVB’s “Take The Skinheads Bowling” was the tune I first loved and became a regular on my college radio show, “Ambiguity Song” is on the most playlists and is a song that resonates with me in times of uncertainty…it is once again my jam.
The video is pointless, just posted here for the tune.
