Songs Inspired from Bowling in Boston

The Pig was up in Boston this weekend, celebrating the birthday of blog friend Brian Grimm. We bowled 80's-style, with black lights, glowing pins, and some old-school videos blazing on screens above the ten-pin action.

Granted, we didn't hear any of the following songs, but I'm not posting Kool and the Gang, or Miami Sound Machine on this blog. These are songs inspired by the bowling action, namely, things I would play if I were fortunate enough to own and operate an alley.

First up, a couple of songs by Cut Copy, followed by some classics that today's New Wave resurgence definitely took for inspiration.

Cut Copy - Feel the Love (Live)

Cut Copy - Hearts on Fire

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark - Forever Live and Die

New Order - Perfect Kiss
