Song of the Week: "Lightning Strikes"

I love this. This is the kind of new wave avant garde art I've loved since I was a kid. It's this kind of thing that made people call me a weirdo, but it's the kind of thing that never seemed particularly weird to me. It's performance art. Whatev. Anyway, this is Klaus Nomi from his 1981 album (a favorite), covering the classic 1965 pop hit by Lou Christie. A marvelous, operatic reinterpretation.
