A guide to the Boo Radley Band:
The Boo Radley Band found success in the 90s and were named after a minor, yet memorable character in the award-winning book How to Kill a Mockingbird. The band was formed in England and released brit pop, alternative rock, and indie music. While the band is no longer active after disbanding in 1999, it’s well worth listening to some of their most successful tracks. Some key examples of which include Wake Up Boo!, Find The Answer Within and I Hang Suspended.
Madonna Top of the Pops:
Madonna’s first appearance on the UK music show Top of the Pops was to perform her hit song Holiday, in 1984. A track which was written by Maddona’s boyfriend at the time DJ John Benitez, who was better known by the name Jellybean. A few short months after Madonna appeared on Top of the Pops, she had broken up with Benitez. Who claimed that Maddona had used him to get connections in the music industry. Although he also admitted that he wasn’t faultless by any means and also used their relationship to catapult him into stardom.
A guide to Husker Du:
Husker Du was a punk rock band who achieved success in the 80s after being founded in 1979. Many of Husker Du’s songs had memorable yet strange lyrics. As an example, in the song How To Skin A Cat Husker Du, the lyrics speak about a group who want to create a cat farm with 100,000 cats, in order to earn a fortune. The song gets its title from the shocking lyric “one hundred men, can skin 500 cats a day”. For a profit of over $10,000 per day.
As another example, in the track I Apologize Husker Du lyrics talk about when couples get into fights and fail to communicate well with each other and end up just “staring at four walls”, instead of apologizing. The lyrics also speak about how hard it can be for a partner to apologize only to have their apology fall on death ears and for the relationship to slowly die.
If you enjoy music that has strong lyrics and social commentary, you’ll love Husker Du’s music. If you’re curious Husker Du translates to “do you remember”, in Danish. Although the band was founded in the United States.
