This is already lining up to be a week full of nostalgia, so why not jump in with both feet on #2ForTuesday. First up we have one of my favorite bands of the 90s in a video with one of my favorite shows from the 80s. Here’s Ben Folds Five with the cast of Fraggle Rock in Do It Anyways
Total nostalgia overload here. Glad to see both gangs back together after long hiatuses. I was thrilled that Ben Folds Five reunited this year, that is until I heard their tour was hitting Kansas City and not St. Louis. Still, the new album sounds like classic BF5, especially this harmonious little toe tapper.
Next up is another of my favorite bands from the 90s. Here’s The Smashing Pumpkins with Quasar.
Billy Corgan is continuing his late career renaissance with Oceania. Several tracks on his latest album sound like great outtakes from the Pumpkins 1993 masterpiece, Siamese Dream. This track in particular has the same loud-soft-loud structure and swirling guitars that hooked me on the band back in my teen years. The mid-90s are back and better than ever!
