Knut -Thomas Lovely nostalgic pop with a 80ths feel, makes me want to open up a facebook account, just to find out what became of my senior highschool girlfriend :) Favorite track: Beauty Queen.

kmxexii Love in a time where the only things that mattered were school, video games, and girls. One girl in particular. Arcade High puts the chiptunes in the backseat in an EP where innocence and romance intersect, with love and heartbreak commingling in "Blacktop Rendezvous" and an undercurrent of excitement in the gently galloping "Dream of Me". "You Said Forever" reminds us, painfully, of why we have HIGH SCHOOL sweethearts. Remember the sweet, though, and excise the bitter. A very warm experience. Favorite track: Dream Of Me.

Scumbag If you can listen to the title track without any of the late, lamented genius John Hughes' films coming to mind I'd be incredibly surprised. In fact the whole EP has an '80s teen movie love theme vibe to it. (...even though the cover art kinda reminds me of Carrie... is that just me?) Favorite track: Beauty Queen.

They all watch as she walks the stage -- secretly wishing. But she'll see them stare and wish the same. She's the Beauty Queen...

Track Name: Blacktop Rendezvous
Last call for love, eighteen and slipping away
Eyes are crystal like a window
To scry no future complications

I'll catch your psychic waves
Trace all the ley lines
Knowing your intentions
In everlasting tension
Still I'm waiting for a sign

Take this heart of mine
I'll show you what I'm made of tonight
Break this heart of mine
I'll show you what I'm made of tonight

Like foxes we will run hunted by the night
Lost in moments
I'm reeling from your moments
Still I'm waiting for a sign

The moon is fleeting fast
I'm caught inside your veins
Floating high above the ground
Pull me down and drag me from this daze

Take this heart of mine
I'll show you what I'm made of tonight
Break this heart of mine
I'll show you what I'm made of tonight
