Lost Hits of the New Wave #6

"Clones (We're All)" by Alice Cooper.

This is notoriously the New Wave song from Alice Cooper, trashed at the time as cashing in and selling out to popular music, the album "Flush the Fashion" is now considered something of a lost treasure. It was one of my faves of the time even though it disappeared quickly. I remember it being in the nightly 'top five at ten' on WPST for a week or so.

Selling out or not, the tune is vintage Alice, and fits it perfectly with his repertoire. Alice was the monster guy when I was in elementary school, and was now the scifi guy with this comeback while I was in junior high. Do you hear the Gary Numan "Cars" vibe in there? I like it.
