no votes for "Blind" or "Mr. Jones?" thought they should have received at least one vote each, but yeah the right song won.

Can't really imagine too many people tempted to vote "Blind" or "Mr. Jones" ending up not voting for "(Nothing But) Flowers" TBH.

then again this thing had a solid if unspectacular finish in the 88 p&j so what i'm remembering as 'it wasn't relevant/discussed at the time' may be 'it wasn't relevant to/discussed by 13 yr old me at the time' when i'm way way way more interested in def leppard and luke skyywalker and sonic youth and new jack swing and inxs and whatever house i can hear on the radio and rakim and pixies and trying to find a copy of the black album and public enemy public enemy public enemy public enemy.

This album was part of the batch of 8-albums-for-a-penny Columbia House subscription I signed up for when I got a CD player in 1987.
I overpaid for it.

I was in high school when Naked came out, and I loved it at the time. But the cool alterna kids didn't listen to them. The only people that did were me and my music geek friends. We'd smoke lots of dope, listen to Roxy Music, Lou Reed and the Talking Heads. What a shock there were no girls around.
I do distinctly remember an MTV promo for 120 Minutes that showed a clip of their new video Blind, referring to David Byrne as an "underground legend." So even back then he was being ushered nascent the adult alternative genre.
