WTLX Mix Tapes: Side 2, Song 2

Note: This series originally appeared on Facebook in a slightly different form, Aug-Sept 16.

This one’s still a fave. I wondered for a number of years what the backups were singing here–I finally decided it was “Ego, envy, lust.” Googling today tells me it’s “Ego and you lost,” which does make more sense. It reached #22 in early spring 1984. Apparently there are two “official” videos; I’m linking to the one I remember seeing back in the day, even though it’s cut off just a smidge on both the front and back ends.

ETA: The vid I had here originally has been removed from YouTube; this replacement is much better!
