Mixtape Of The Day 10/11/2016: She Saw You Pout

Here's the beginning of a three-part series -- actually it's more like two and a half, or three and a quarter -- of slightly below-the-radar "modern rock" music from the 1980's, kind of inspired by projections of what all the guys in The Breakfast Club started listening to after their bonding experience ended and they all had to go home and find themselves amongst the rubble of their just-decimated personas. Except for Bender, who probably got high and listened to Napalm Death. None of these songs appeared on The Breakfast Club soundtrack album because -- well, first of all, there was no Breakfast Club soundtrack album -- but also because they weren't asked. And also because some of these songs weren't done until after the movie came out. But they all fit a kind of aesthetic, somewhat. You'll figure it out. I think you'll enjoy this, even though the World Party track is actually from 1990. It's my show. I am the eyes and ears of this institution, my friends. Here's your track list.
