It makes so much sense now.

I always consider 1983-1987 to be the glory days of my radio. Then there was that whole mid-'90s phase where bands like Nine Inch Nails were the greatest thing ever and I started to wonder if I was wrong. I have just learned that Trent Reznor was programming a computer to make music in 1986. My theory stands. Wow.

Check out Thomas Dolby explaining that the computer is his instrument. I never thought about the music purists who were probably vomiting fire when electronic music came along. This clip is seriously historic.

Trent Reznor was also in the backing band for the Michael J. Fox - Joan Jett buddy flick "Light of Day", if that isn't oddly creepy and sacrosanct enough for you…
