    Fred and I overlap on six tracks on today’s selection, including “Heart And Soul.” (Do not mock T’Pau!) The new songs:
    “Head To Toe,” Lisa Lisa And Cult Jam
    “Headin’ Out,” Presidents Of The United States Of America
    “Headline News,” Weird Al Yankovic
    “Headlong,” Queen
    “Heard It On The X,” ZZ Top
    “Heart,” Pet Shop Boys
    “Heart-Shaped Box,” Nirvana
    “Heart Of Glass,” Blondie
    “Heart Of Stone,” The Rolling Stones
    “Heartbeat City,” The Cars
    “Heartbreak Again,” Yipes!
    Not a lot to get excited about recommending here. The Queen, Nirvana, Rolling Stones and Cars tracks are reliable standards, and I suppose you could say the same for “Heart Of Glass.” Weird Al Yankovic delivers the Weird Al goods in “Headline News,” but that’s not for everyone. The Presidents Of The United States Of America and Yipes! are underrated garage/geek rock bands, but today’s selections just aren’t their best efforts, and the Pet Shop Boys and ZZ Top tracks are nothing special. Lisa Lisa And Cult Jam should under no circumstances be listened to by anyone except trained professionals working under laboratory conditions.
