i write down everything they say
a couple weeks ago, i was checking out a stream from rhino records called future retro (click here if you'd like to check it out). it's a bunch of remixed 80s tracks, which you can conveniently purchase here. so one of the tracks on there is book of love's "boy", used to be one of my favorites. i hadn't heard it in aaaaaages so i dug out the album when i got home from work. it's a bit dated, but still catchy synthpop. "i touch roses" and "boy" were huge club hits back in those days, and they still sound good. the cd has a couple remixes of those and other tracks. my other favorite songs are "you make me feel so good" and "book of love". a little bit of trivia: susan ottaviano had a small spot in silence of the lambs. she plays a friend of the first victim. when the cops go back to interview her to try and get more info/insight, you can hear a book of love song playing in the background (although i can't remember which one it is and i don't have a copy of the movie). also, you can hear "modigliani (lost in your eyes)" in the movie, "planes trains and automobiles".
a couple tracks for you to check out:

i touch roses (long stemmed mix)
