“Belly of the Whale” by Burning Sensations. It’s a very 80s video.

  1. OMFG Now this is what Iget from not being able to sleep… Will I ever be able to forget this? Please Mr Scalzi, promise never to do anything like this again.

  2. I am not sure how I missed that one the first time around back in the 1980s, but I am kind of glad that I did.

  3. What vocabulary quiz did you take that you thought was “snordifluous”? I want to try it.

  4. These guys were actually a really good live band…saw them a bunch of times back in their day in L.A. clubs. Tim McGovern (guitar/vocal) came from an early incarnation of The Motels. Michael Temple was a killer percussionist. One reason they were fun live is you never knew what kind of strange objects he would bring to a gig to bang on.

  5. I do remember the song, and started hearing a fragment when I saw it linked here. A little bit of the video feels vaguely familiar.

  6. I remember the video from MTV. I think it was in heavy rotation for about a week. Definitely not played much on SiriusXM’s First Wave, though.

  7. Just serves as a reminder that what 80s music other people think is obscure, I think everyone knows. That means what I think is obscure, virtually no one has heard of.

  8. I only know them from the Repo Man soundtrack. Never knew they did anything else.
