The Sleeper Awakens with the Dune Trailer 

Just about everyone’s waiting for Denis Villeneuve’s remake of Frank Herbert’s Dune. Having grown up on the David Lynch version (and making my way through the novel), it has some big shoes to fill. Thankfully, what we’ve seen of it so far seems interesting. Villeneuve…

A Love Bizarre – by Sheila E. & Prince 

When I think about 1985’s Krush Groove (which doesn’t happen too often these days), two things comes to mind. The Fat Boys raiding a local Sbarro’s pizzeria (I really miss their Pizza), and Sheila E. singing Love Bizarre. Love Bizarre is one of my favorite songs. Written by Sheila E. and Prince, it’s a pop piece that puts Sheila front and  center on vocals. If you listen, you can hear Prince doing the backup vocals, which was a nice touch.  Normally, Sheila’s known for her drum work – she was part of the set of drummers Hans Zimmer brought in to work on the Man of Steel score.

The original radio edit of the song is about 4 minutes, but like most songs in the 1980s, we’re blessed with an extended 12 minute dance ’til you get tired mix. Love this song.
