As I was literally just about to post the infamous bareback riding scene from Private School in its entirety, the fine folks from LE MATOS forwarded me the cover they did of Phoebe Cate's 'How Do I Let You Know'. Upon first listen, I knew it was meant to be. There was absolutely no stopping a video compilation from being made. If you're a follower of the book of TNUC, you should already know that the original song is a quintessential TNUC cut and has been featured here before.
This new rendition of the song is 5 minutes and 6 seconds of glistening gold that will bring you back to the days of peeking through window blinds, teenage fantasies and of course...Betsy Russell andPhoebe Cates. Play the video...then download the cover for free.

640 San Vicente Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90048
On the triumphant night of February 22, 1986, Cannon Headquarters grand opening party was held in Los Angeles. If you were an important element of these city streets, you couldn't afford to miss this night. In attendance that night was everyone from Michael Dudikoff, who could be seen sporting a full denim-on-denim wardrobe and sitting in a luxiourious sofa, emmursed in cigarette smoke, to dame Vanity, who halfway through the night drifted into a corporate office with her date, a bag of narcotics. Outside by the rooftop pool was Sly Stallone, conversing with Brigitte Neilsen about the global franchise that would be the Cobra film series. Too bad for Sly and the rest of us, Cobra only made it to one picture.
Trying to comprehend the amount of power and sheer explosiveness of what else went on behind these doors is something I for one, cannot do. So we'll let the music do the talking. The following theme has been chosen because it is the only track worthy of contemplating The Cannon Group.
This is the entrance music upon walking into Cannon Headquarters. Each time you set foot on the grounds of this legendary corporate lair, this is the song that plays in the background. While streaming the track, take a long, hard glimpse at the above photo of Cannon's fortress. You, your hot sister and even I...are just not worthy.

If you've ever pondered the notion of what TNUC was doing during the forgotten 1990's, this exclusive peek inside could be your only chance. This never-before-seen footage of a typical morning surfaced last week from a laboratory archive in the Valley.

How TNUC changed your life: Lost by myself in a present that was never meant to be, TNUC kept my dream alive. The dream of flying deloreans, hoverboards, cybernetic organisms, living tissue over metal endoskeletons, venturous moustached Italian strangers of the night that take you to other dimensions by using next level synths, little foxes down at the beach and bitchin' hard rock bands whose sleazy tunes make you wanna party all night and day...an epic life.
The following mix is dedicated to Cannon Films, Power Glove, Sega Genesis, Kyle Reese, The Wraith, Super Contra, Snake Plissken, Rimini, Starscream, The T-800, Tech Noir: Los Angeles, The Cold War and last but not least my idol, brother in mind and guide through the strange present time - UNCLE T!

And hey TNUC...when are you gonna do an homage to 80s tough girls set to the music of Pat Benetar's 'Invincible' (theme from The Legend of Billie Jean)? Of course the clip would have to feature Helen Slater (The Legend of Billie Jean), Jodie Foster (Foxes), Lea Thompson & Jennifer Grey (Red Dawn), Tanya Roberts (Beastmaster) and/or perhaps maybe one of the Tuscadero sisters?
Just a thought...
Anyway, thanks Uncle T for doing what you do.
