Nerdvana: “Love Plus One” by Haircut 100

Today’s Nerdvana is a selection from the early 1980’s band Haircut 100, who had a very brief and tumultuous career (the band only produced 2 albums and the lead singer was only present for the first). I used to see the video for this particular track on TBS’s Night Tracks a lot (Night Tracks was basically TBS’s mini-MTV clone block, back when the ‘M’ in MTV stood for Music, rather than Mediocre), and it continues to be one of my favorite 80’s pop tunes.

Because of the video, I always think of  tropical islands and exotic rain forests whenever I hear this song. Remember Wild Cartoon Kingdom from last year? This would be a fitting opening theme for that if it were a show. Plus, I just really like the title. Enjoy “Love Plus One”.
