Monday lost and found: Bangles' 'If She Knew What She Wants'
As we spent last week covering songs by Susannah Hoffs and Matthew Sweet's "Under the Covers" series, we know that if Susannah knew what she wanted, she would want for Stuck in the ‘80s's to feature a Bangles song on Lost and Found.
You can keep Manic Monday and Walk Like An Egyptian and I'll take Susannah Hoff's finest hour as a Bangle singing lead on If She Knew What She Wants from 1986's epic Different Light album. The song only reached No. 29 on the singles chart but the video is a pure delight as it features The Bangles doing what they do best: combining harmonies and great musicianship while looking great in the process. The song was a remake of the original 1985 version by Jules Shears and the Polar Bears.
After breaking up in the ‘90s, The Bangles have reunited minus bassist Michael Steele (who retired from the music business) and in 2011 released their "Sweetheart of the Sun" album. http://www.thebangles.com/
