... with THE BANGLES!  There's no better way to start than with these live takes on "Hero Takes A Fall"  and Kimberley Rew's "Goin' Down To Liverpool" for Dave in 1984. It was that sort of rawk (and the hotness of Susanna Hoffs) that got Prince to give them "Manic Monday," their first mainstream hit, from the A Different Light album, which included Jules Shear's "If She Knew What She Wants," Alex Chilton's "September Gurls," and -- inevitably -- Liam Sternberg's "Walk Like An Egyptian."  Nevertheless, their fondness for the genres of the mid-60s was still evident in their take on Simon & Garfunkel's "Hazy Shade of Winter" for the Less Than Zero soundtrack, and the psych-garage-bubblegum of "In Your Room" on the Everything album, which yielded their final No.1 hit, "Eternal Flame."  The draw from the 60s is a constant I saw them in a club, on a big stage and in a club again -- the last time was at a House of Blues, where they covered the We Five's "You Were On My Mind."  However, I'll confess that I put off featuring the band for about a bit, until the Susanna Hoffs solo cover of Bad Company's "Feel Like Makin' Love" popped back up on the Tube after an absence. That woman knows how to shake her tambourine.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows tops the chart with 35.2MM...but that's only a little more than half of the 2014 reboot's opening take against a 135MM budget.

Overseas grosses may be needed to keep the franchise going...and crossing the 400MM mark worldwide suggest they may just make it.  Me Before You shows with 18.3MM which means the teen tearjerker may see profit on the big screen, if the marketing costs were reasonable.  Alice Through The Looking Glass takes the fourth slot on a nasty 60 percent drop in its second weekend.
