The Cars - Just What I Needed
Jo Jackson reminds me of The Cars, same era anyway.
Funny in retrospect. A conspiracy of the stoned, performing for a congregation of the oblivious.

The band do it live, rather than cover their own track. Nice, very professional.
p.s. Way OT but still, remember sitting next to him in a pub in Kensington. He really did have, er .... a kind of alian-aura about him. I loved his music but there was not a single thing I imagined I could say to him. Very odd, as I'm not exactly 'backwards in coming forwards'.

At your leisure sir.... no rush at all
Meanwhile, I woke up in the middle of the night and somehow felt the urge to dig this link up I found about 6 months ago:
Heavens. You've pitched a swerver there. Telstar used to be a record label that produced compilation albums, you know like 'Grandpa's 20 Xmas favourites' and so on. So I was thinking... ok, so how is this connected with Tangerine Dream who surely never recorded for Telstar
But this is a publicly funded project to create an archive of versions of The Tornado's chart song 'Telstar'?... lol.... that's mad!
It doesn't render correctly in any of the browsers I use but it's still workable.
Works OK in Opera but I wouldn't call the site intuitive...
In my arrogance I always thought this to be an American band, turns out the original was from a British band, but I think and arguably emulating an American style.
Hey it's ok, I used to think Metallica were Swedish rather than American. No idea why... but what a big surprise I got when I found out how wrong I was. And yes I agree it certainly has an American style about it.
Good way to waste 30 minutes finding the version who do the song's chorus the best.
Opens beer/sits back... starts listening.
