The Bangles: All Over The Place (Columbia)

Craig Zeller, Creem, October 1984

CALL ME a female chauvinist if you must but most of the year's most stimulating records have come from women. My current turntable dream set includes the Pretenders' wondrous 'Show Me', the Go-Go's piano-pounding 'Head Over Heels', Bananarama's delirious 'Robert DeNiro's Waiting', Jocelyn Brown's Arethaesque 'Somebody Else's Guy', Tracey Ullman's exhilarating 'Breakaway' and the Sheila E's splendorous 'The Glamorous Life'.

Total word count of piece: 450
