The Waitresses - I Know What Boys Like

The Waitresses

The quintessential, quirky fusion between Talking Heads-era post punk and cerebral New Wave with saxophone. They have a really good Xmas song too. Always loved Patty Donahue's voice since I was a child. A real favorite from the '80s. Also liked the bassist, Tracy Wormworth -- the whole band was good, actually. The whole song just works for me. Loved how they were artsy and nerdy, but not in a contrived, superficial, plastic kind of way. After all, the band was from Ohio.
