Jet Fuel Jukebox for 11/28/17

We’ve arrived in the wasteland that is the dry period of late-year music releases (or, lack thereof). There’s absolutely nothing that came out this past Friday that caught my ear, so I’ve gone to looking back for inspiration on my half of the Jukebox this week.

Jake’s done his best keeping his half of the playlist current, but the first ten tracks of the proceedings are 80s English throwbacks, spurred by my decision to spin The Cure’s The Head on the Door the other day. What a wonderful album that is.

And alongside a track from that Cure record, we also have tracks from Duran Duran, Wet, Maroon 5, and Elvis Costello & The Attractions.
