Aliens ate my Buick is fantastic. Sounds dated because the production, but it’s a lot of fun.
I love Thomas Dolby (no guilt here!), especially "The Flat Earth" album. From a songwriting perspective it's so much more than just electropop. "Screen Kiss" & "Mulu the Rain Forest" have a beautiful, lush feel & you get the feeling Mr Dolby is really baring his soul, which adds nice contrast to the "tech-based" music. The mix of acoustic instruments & electronics was way ahead of its day for 1984!

I only like this because The Cray's is one of my favorite Brit gangster movies. Nothing screams '80s like a set of Simmons octagonal E-Drums.
