When I was 15 years old the film "Pretty In Pink" came out and the soundtrack changed my life. I'd like to cover the whole album eventually. Here's the first track for you by OMD. Hope you enjoy!

Fantastic. Great cover from a great movie.

Ahh, yes, Duckie... "It's the end of the month, they're out of toilet seat covers!"

Can't wait for the rest of the soundtrack.

Thanks Bill! Oh that Duckie! I had the bowler hat, thrift store clothes, etc...

yep, me too..... great multitrack - love the vox harmony on the chorus and the lead riff...... just a fantastic cover, Eric....

That soundtrack lived in my tape deck for a long time, as well - can't wait to hear the rest.... think you'd kill that Suzanne Vega tune.....

Great 80s mood! Wonderful cover!

Is that a Roland R-09?

Bob Welch just died, and I think I know just the guy to do a uke tribute song (Sentimental Lady just sounds like it should be played on a uke--that twinkling part.lol)

Thanks William! Yeah that's an R-09. I didn't realize it was in the shot. I use it to get the main uke/vocal track.

I'd say, and I'm being honest here, that you and RussBuss are my fav ukulele utube subs. Why? Guys like me, better ukers than me, though, who are inventive in the videos, and greatly unconventional in song choices, with a leaning toward the 80s.

It's the cat's pajamas! --- C ya, E. Steve

Thanks Steve and TCK! I'm glad there are people out there that appreciate those 80's songs and what I'm doing with them!

As a guy who used to wear eye-liner and teased bangs back in the day, I have to say I am digging the oldies, too.

Oh, $#!+, did I just say "oldies?"

Excellent cover!! I second Bob Welch's songs as well. How about Ebony Eyes?

Nice rendition, Eric. Thanks for another one proving that lots of 80's songs are able to thrive well beyond E-mu SP-12's, Sequential Circuits Profits V's and Akai Samplers! Though that stuff is great as well. If I had some mousse, I would immediately apply it to my hair.

Best wishes, Billsie

Really nice work! I also fondly remember that soundtrack...

That rocked, Eric! Keep up the 80's covers!

Another one that would be good that I can't do justice to would be "Don't You" by The Simple Minds (Breakfast Club Soundtrack).
