It's a shit hit.

No, actually, I like it in small doses, which I'm usually able to manage. So HIT, baby!

Hit
Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Take out the " 's " and the title would be "John Coan, Shit or Hit."

Not THAT would be a thread!

Not the sort of thing that I would have intentionally listened to at the time, but now it kind of sounds like a classic of the era/genre.

This. It is a classic, for a reason.

Is there anything more "eighties?" There's one for the time capsule. I like it too much, purely as a matter of nostalgia, to call it shit. I was young enough not to hate it. But it really is little. Ore than processed cheese.

Imagine how much better it would be played with a B-3 and a bank of horns instead of that creepy synth.

It's almost a pity it has that main synth melody, as the background clicks are quite interesting, and it's not bad as the tune develops. It's hard to judge, since it's now essentially a Rubik's Cube wearing deely boppers and leg-warmers.

I guess it sounds like a Cabaret Voltaire cast-off. Which is ok. I'll go for hit.

I'll say this for the eighties, at least people made music that aimed to sound distinctively of its time. Love it or loath it.

Had this been a year or so earlier, it would have been some cool New York underground electro thing (think Mantronix or Whodini). I like it, but, like bunjee jumping, it's best experienced as a very occasional pleasure.
