The Plimsouls “A Million Miles Away”

plimsouls

This was a big song that they played on alternative and college radio stations in 1983. For all of these years I’d mistakenly thought this was a song by The Alarm, but the band was actually The Plimsouls.

Most people may know this band/song from their inclusion in the film and soundtrack to 1983’s Valley Girl. A song that entices girls to make-out with Nic Cage.

It's all just pops and clicks within the vinyl groove I'm listening to. Music, movies, commercials, action figures, cassette tapes...anything that you left in your parents' attic when you moved. I want to talk about it.
