"I Know What Boys Like" by The Waitresses

The Waitresses were among my favourite bands when, back in the day, I and my hair were all about the New Wave; in memory of their vocalist Patty Donahue, who died on this day in 1996 of lung cancer, it's their biggest hit, from the 1982 album Wasn't Tomorrow Wonderful.

It's not available on CD; for that you'll need to get The Best of the Waitresses; the band is shown here performing it on BBC2's long-running music programme The Old Grey Whistle Test.
