Everytime You Go Away

Let's admit it.  The 1980's was bereft of really great music.  A few bands managed to break the mold and do some amazing things like U2 and REM and Bruce Springsteen carried the banner for rock and roll through much of the decade.  But synthesizers and hair bands nearly killed the 80's.

But I must admit to a weakness for one particular piece of 80's shlock.  I can remember the first time I heard this song.  I was driving on a Saturday morning from Kansas City to Lawrence on K-10 when this tune came on KY102.  I like this particular performance because you can see a young Mark Knopler, Eric Clapton, and Elton John playing.

I love this song for some weird reason. I was in a relationship at the time but I don't think my attachment to this particular song was connected to what was going on in my life at the time. I just thought it was a great love song. Anyway, enjoy Paul and George, they look pretty young too.

  1. Nice video.

    I always thought it funny that the song was an original Hall and Oates that Young covered. Seems like it should be the other way around.
