'TIL TUESDAY - A Few Rare Videos

From the new wave-funk fusion of their debut LP, Voices Carry, to the highly sophisticated pop of follow-up albums Welcome Home and Everything's Different Now, Boston's 'Til Tuesday had a truly unique sound highlighted by the exquisite songwriting and singing of Aimee Mann and the guitar work of Robert Holmes. As much as I love Mann's solo work I keep coming back to the old 'Til Tuesday records for a sound I know I won't find anywhere else.

I periodically search for rare or previously-unreleased material from the band, and recently came across some excellent videos of a few songs that never made it to any of the albums. My favorite, Just Like Me, is an amazing keyboard-driven tune with a perfect melody that should have made it to an album. Enough to Save You is more thoughtful pop boasting some really nice guitar work, while Boy has the funk-inspired sound that ran throughout the Voices Carry album. Check out all three videos below. The look is unquestionably 80s, but the sound is timeless.
