Friday Morning Videos: "Borderline"

Keeping with the new pattern, a year ago, on October 2, 2009, it was Madonna's "Vogue". Great tune, cool video. But still, honestly, I wonder: why'd she have to go changing in the first place? I like her earliest stuff best.

Easily her best song of the first few albums. At least until Respect Yourself and Like a Prayer

A former student of mine sent me a FB update, alerting me to the Flaming Lips's cover of the song. Blows me away, really. Rips the song out of its poppy, shake-away-the-nostalgia, early-80s girl-power mode, and turns it into a huge-yet-introspective, psychedelic, techno-goth anthem...and yet, leaving the emotional core of the lyrics intact. Pretty damn brilliant.
