My best of the '80s, in no
particular order:
Soul Asylum, Made to be
Broken
Husker Du, New Day Rising
X, More Fun in the New World
That live on vinyl sound with
fuzz-busting guitars and cool
lyrics, too.
Metallica, Ride the Lightning
Forget the MTV definition of
headbanger. Please. This band
knows what metal's really about.
Don't tell anybody, but
underneath the kill 'em all
exteriors lie gifted musicians and
songwriters. Even in his wildest
sun king nightmares Ian Astbury
will never be this tough. Or
talented.
Soundgarden, Ultramega OK
Thrashing guitars, screeching
vocals, Seattle.
Elvis Costello, Get Happy!
Pete Townshend, All the Best
Cowboys Have Chinese Eyes
Stewart Copeland, The
Rhythmatist
AC/DC, Back in Black
Black Uhuru, Red
Don Cherry, Art Deco
Jonas Hellborg, Elegant Punk:
Solobass 2
Other bests:
Album cover
George Clinton, R&B
Skeletons in the Closet
A complete and much-deserved
slam on the racism inherent in the
music industry and said industry's
creation of sicky-sweet "white
soul."
Cover songs (vinyl)
Dinosaur jr., "Just Like

Heaven" and "Show Me the
Way"
Louder, trashier and undeniably
better than the originals.
Cowboy Junkies, "Sweet
Jane"
Perhaps the most-covered song in
all of rock history but, hey, even
Lou likes this one.
Soul Asylum, "Barstool Blues"
The only reason not to regret
purchasing the Neil Young tribute
album The Bridge.
Ciccone Youth, "Into the
Groovey"

,

Madonna never knew it could be
this good.
Big Chief, "Superstupid"
In-your-face funk.
Cover songs (live)
Junk Monkeys, "Pale Blue
Eyes"
What it would have sounded like.
if the Velvet Underground
members had skipped the heroin
and downed a keg.
Black Flag, "Louie, Louie"
What it would have sounded like
if the Kingsmen would have
skipped the keg and shot heroin.
Soundgarden, "Come
Together"
What it would have sounded like
if the Beatles broke up and some
guys from Seattle with really long
hair trashed one of their classics
up and down St. Andrews Hall.

Prince:
Cultural metaphor for the eighties?

Nabeel
Zuberi
ALBUMS
BEST ALBUM OF THE
DECADE:
The Smiths The Queen is Dead
- sardonic wit, tongue-in-
cheekiness and very British
romanticism from the greatest
guitar group since The Beatles
split. Features easily the best
song of the decade in "There is a
Light that never goes out." Their
other albums were pretty good
too, except for the last one.

Blaze
Supposedly,Paul Newman gives a great
performance in this story about former
Lousiana Gov. Earl K. Long's affair
with stripper Blaze Starr, portrayed by
newcomer Lolita Davidovich. At Ann
Arbor I&II: F-4:50, 7:10, 9:30. S & 5-

Showcase: 4:30, 7:30, 9:55, 12:15.
Born on the Fourth of July
Oliver Stone's compelling account of
Ron Kovic's Vietnam and Post-Vietnam
experience. Difficult to sit through but
worth seeing for Tom Cruise's dynamic
performance, if not the stunning
cinematography. At Briarwood: 1:00,
4:00, 7:00, 9:45, 12:15. At Showcase:
1:00, 4:00, 7:15, 10:00.
Downtown
I just don't know. I JUST DON'T
KNOW, ALL RIGHT? I'm sorry. Why
don't you be innovative for once and
see the film without someone telling
you what to think! Too many fine films
fail every year thanks to couch potatoes
like you who don't bother to look at
films without a thumbs-up. At
Briarwood: 12:30, 2:45, 4:45, 7:15, 9:15,
11:30. At Showcase: 12:45,.2:40, 5:00,
7:45,9:50,11:50.

5:05, 7:40, 9:55, 12:10.
Leatherface
The aforementioned can't keep his
hands off that nasty chainsaw in the
third of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre
trilogy. The 1974 original set a standard
among horror films that this picture
doesn't meet. Didn't anyone ever teach
this psychopath in search of a
dermatologist that cannibalism is
passe.? At Showcase: 12:40, 2:35, 4:40,
7:35, 9:50, 12:00.
The Little Mermaid

good. At Showcase: 12:00, 2:00, 4:00,
6:00.
Look who's talking
Not to be missed, Bruce Willis lends his
oral talents as the voice of Kirstie

I t
Alley's child. John "I'm so confused"
Travolta puts in an passable
performance that smells suspiciously
like a comeback. Stay Alive, babe. At
Fox Village: 7:00. At Showcase: 12:35,
2:40, 9:45,11:40.
National Lampoon's Christmas
Vacation
The holidays are over but Chevy
Chase's most recent attempt at humor
is still hanging in there. At Fox Village:
9:30.
Rocky Horror Picture Show
Although not technically a first-run
film, this classic still draws enough
angst-filled individuals to be shown
nearly every weekend in Ann Arbor. At
Briarwood: F & S-11:45 p.m.
Roger & Me

about his hometown. At Showcase:
12:30, 2:45, 5:05, 7:20, 9:40, 12:00

At Showcase: 7:45, 10:00, 12:15.
Tango & Cash
Stallone & Russell. Could be a sleazy
attempt to combine two box-office
heavies for increased coffers but isn't.
This action film has it all - car chases,
knives, guns, cool gadgets (like an "RV
from hell"), Jack Palance - and a wry,
lively repart6e between the two stars
that makes this film worth seeing. At
Fox Village: 7:15, 9:30. At Showcase:
1:05, 3:10, 5:20, 7:35, 9:45, 11:50.
Tango Bar
Never heard of it, but it sounds like it
might be worth $5. At Ann Arbor I&II:
F-5:10, 7:30, 9:45. S & S-1:00, 3:00,
5:10, 7:30, 9:45.
War of the Roses
Black comedy about divorce directed by
Danny DeVito that makes pat6-lovers
everywhere cringe. Starring Michael
Douglas and Kathleen Turner. At
Briarwood: 12:00, 2:20, 4:35, 7:00, 9:30,
11:45. At Showcase: 12:20, 2:35, 4:50,
7:15, 9:35, 11:55.
Wizard
Highlighted by rising star Fred Savage
and the Nintendo entertainment
system, this film tries to combine two
icons of late 80s pop culture. It fails. At
Showcase: 12:25, 2:30.

Field of Dreams (Phil Alden
Robinson, 1989) MLB 4 7 & 9
Kevin Costner is Ray Kinsella, an Iowa
farmer who is informed by a strange
voice that "If you build it, he will
come." "He" (so Ray thinks) is
Shoeless Joe Jackson and "it" is a
baseball diamond in the midst of corn
fields. Joe and the rest of the 1919
Black Sox appear and are the catalyst
that aid Ray in defining his own
identity. Acceptance of the impossible
is a prerequisite to enjoying this film.

Prince Rogers Nelson
emerged in the late seventies
and took the eighties by storm.
In total, he released nine albums
plus the well publicized bootleg
The Black Album. In addition
were his numerous singles,
including the illustrious "B-
Sides" such as "Erotic City",
"Irresistible Bitch", "God" and
"How Come U Don't Call Me
Anymore?" With his avant-garde
dress - g-strings and high
heeled boots on his Dirty Mind
Tour; sexual innuendos - the
track "International Lover" on
1999, an analogy between having
sex and flying in a plane; and his

own sexual ambiguity - in
"Annastesia", off the Lovesexy
album, he asks, "Have you ever
wanted to be with someone so
badly you'd take anyone boy or
girl?", Prince caught the rock
scene off guard. His music, his
lyrics, and the controversy he
spurred caused many to question
their ethnicity, their sexuality,
and their very existence. With
his mass appeal to all audiences,.
Prince successfully broke the
barrier between "black music".
and "white music." He has
paved the way for artists to come
and made his name synonymous
with genius.
