Sounds Like the 80s
College Rock, Alternative Music, and More
Tuesday, September 2, 2014"Drive Somewhere" by the Vulgar Boatmen
After moving to Chicago in 1990, I'd swear I heard this song every day on WXRT, hence my assumption that it came out that year. But the song (and album) was actually released in 1989, so it makes the cut for this blog!
