Sunday, June 4
I'm not entirely sure why I've decided to go on a bit of an Erasure jag today (and a couple days to come). Maybe the process of compiling my two recent '80s mixes got me back into that sort of nostalgic headspace. Or maybe it was posting the two new Pet Shop Boys tracks that gave rise to the idea, as I've always linked these two groups in my own mind (in each case: two gay Englishmen creating dance-pop from the '80s till today). Then again, maybe I just wanted to capitalize on all of the Thom Yorke/Eraser buzz from last week. After all, just a simple misspelling or typo at the Hype Machine could send any number of unsuspecting searchers my way. Yes, 'tis true... I am a genius of self-promotion.
So, if you're of a mind to, why not take my hand and skip along as I make my journey down the yellow brick road of Erasure's career. You can be whoever you want to be - Scarecrow, Tin Man, Cowardly Lion. But no matter how you slice it, you'll be a Friend of Dorothy.
