First listen to this...




Then the beat and the chord progression on the verses on this...



I love the best of Devo's music, but here is where I fully connect my thoughts as to why Shout is a seriously flawed and ill-fated album. Nice cover, yes, but one that sounds like it had a little added flavor influenced from somewhere else. Happy accident or no...I still wonder. Knowing some of the situation surrounding the creation of the album as well as some of the guitar riff steals (one from Davie Allen's "Blue's Theme" usually missed by critics in between "Day Tripper" lines on "The 4'th Dimension"), you can tell that the dependence on the Fairlight and other then-modern tech among other things had stopped the stand-out creativity they're usually known for in my opinion.

Nothing new, of course, happens all the time (and a hell of a lot in my collection), but when you finally connect the dots on something that had your mind thinking "Now where did they got that familiar-sounding extra flavor from?" when many other reviews miss out...

Still, with Devo's cover of the Hendrix classic being from 1984, maybe they accidentally predicted the mash-up, possibly the ultimate De-Vo of Pop Music in my opinion.

Researching for an article on Shout for my 80's Cut Out memory blog.

I enjoy this song a little bit too much. I could definitely hearing it playing on some adult contemporary radio station.

Vanilla's posting the metal and I'm posting the embarrassing but addictive pop? Dark days.
