My first exposure to The Bangles was a song on a Saturday morning music video show in 1985. I didn't know at the time that this song was originally done by Katrina and the Waves (and was reissued afterwards as the B-side to "Walking on Sunshine"). I didn't know that Debbi Peterson was not the normal lead vocalist of this little group. I certainly didn't know why the camera was giving so much attention to the acoustic guitarist (it's Susanna Hoffs, if you weren't aware, and I would be aware two years later when she gave those sideways eyes again in the video for "Walk Like An Egyptian").
And I didn't know why Leonard Nimoy was so willing to appear in a video for four unknown women. But it made them cooler.
I know all these things now. Susanna Hoffs was friends with Adam Nimoy, Leonard's son.
