Political Animal

The Atlanta DJ who first played this song within my hearing sarcastically called it “the love song of the 80s.” It was also the first U.S. single ever recorded entirely on a computer. Here’s Ebn Ozn with the 1983 classic, “AEIOU, Sometimes Y.” It’s devilishly infectious, I fear.

    Thanks, Ed. Been looking for this on iTunes forever. Guilty pleasure and all that.

    Listening to this reinforces the thought that there really is no accounting for tastes in music.

    "Huh...do I wanna go OUT?"

    I remember that line like it was yesterday.

    Glad I was too old for this, sorry but the song is awful.
