There is no doubt that Siouxsie and the Banshees were an influence on a lot of today’s music, especially their early punk phase. I’m more of a passive listener of this band, where I pick and choose only a handful of songs that I really like. Today’s song is one of them.
I have to give a big thanks to my friend and fellow music aficionado, Elizabeth Caldwell (be sure to check out some of her designs, too), for re-acquainting me with the song “Cities in Dust”, for it is one I had forgotten about until I subscribed to her 80’s and New Wave playlist on Spotify. A song that easily overlooked in modern times, but was a pretty big deal in 1985. It’s one that’s getting some heavy rotation on Spotify and my iPod currently.
Enjoy, my friends!
