The biggest benefit of the club is they would sometimes send her "popular" albums (children - this was great exposure to cool, new music. Specifically for young fans who had never known a world called the Internet or Amazon) that was delivered right to your door. The door so far away that even pizza delivery wasn't possible.
Of all these deliveries - Lover Boy "working for the weekend" was one of my favorites. This song was often played above the correct decibel while I did my chores. One problem. My mother hates the album cover. Hated it so bad that it had to be discarded and a homemade insert for the cassette tape was created.
Over the course of being a mother I have come to realize the disdain my own mom had for songs like "Jack and Diane" and anything by the Violent Femmes.
Yesterday when decibels were too loud in car my and I was enjoying a new song CEM has at her fingertips. I saw the album cover.
