The Botbusting Blue by AngusMcTavish The Botbusting Blue by AngusMcTavish
A take on a 1989 album cover:
www.amazon.com/Breathtaking-Bl…
Fun fact: It was the first CD I ever got, and it was one of the few that were done in CD+Graphics format, a tried-and-failed stunt done by at least one US distributor (WEA).

A little something for fans of the Blue Blur or the German pop band whose album gets spoofed.

Sonic TM SEGA, Sonic Team.
The Breathtaking Blue (P) Warner Music Germany, 1989
Made with Garry's Mod and Paint.

"CD+", eh? I do like obscure media formats. I'll admit though, never heard of CD+.

CD+G

CD+Graphics, it was a short-lived idea in the late '80s/early '90s, and the only way to see the graphics on them these days is through a karaoke machine.  There used to be CD-i players that had this ability, but good luck finding one.

Not much to say about the graphics, anyway; just still shots and the lyrics posted somewhere around them.

Aww, man. I was hoping for something along the lines of animations with graphics similar to the Dire Straits "Money for Nothing" video. Wishful thinking, I suppose.

For the late '80s, that was about as good as they could get for a CD, my guess.

Ironically in your post, "Wishful Thinking" is a later song by the same band whose cover I spoofed here!  That one was from 1997.

Thought you'd like that.  :D

Imagine how tough it would be to come up with the track listings that would accompany this satire...

Thanks!  A spoof that just HAD to be done, even if not many people on my Watch list are familiar with the source.
