Song of the Day - 'Destination Unknown' by Missing Persons
This has always been one of the quintessential New Wave songs for me. I found the parent record "Spring Session M" today for 50 cents and I've been bumping it this evening. It's surprisingly pretty strong, and surprisingly sounds sort of contemporary (methinks the overwhelming trend of Turbo Pop on pop top 40 and dance rock on alt rock may have something to do with it). "Spring Session M" also has the awesome (and New Wave as fuck) 'Walking in L.A' and 'Words' on it.
It all makes me want to put on some leg warmers and hit up an abandoned factory to dance Footloose style.
