When did you become a fan? I became a fan in 1982. Why? What drew you to the band? It was hearing Hungry Like the Wolf and later seeing the video. What I particularly liked was the Jean-Michel Jarresque synth line, which runs through the song. How do you participate in the fandom? What do you… Continue reading May Fan of the Month: Neilio

Happy Last Year

Give It All Up: Sublime
By Heidi Heavens, this is a sublime song. There is something celestial about Give It All Up. Not only does the lyrics point to this with its manyreferences to the universe, but the instruments also refer to space. These I believe we are to understand metaphorically.
