SABRINA – boys ( lost hit )

Hello and welcome back.. Italian songstress Sabina ( Sabrina Salerno ) graced our screens back in 1987 with the hit “boys” … the video to this song caused a huge controversy due to the fact that she was wearing a swimming costume that seemed to have a mind of its own.. so due to that, this video was banned in the U.K until it was edited, and is one of the most downloaded video clips ever shown ( 14 million and counting ). Apart from the eye candy the song is quiet catchy and the album ( Sabrina ) also had the hit “sexy girl” which was also a huge hit…..belissima

GENESIS – invisible touch

Hello and welcome back… aaaahhhh the memories, This is my first CD i ever brought. The sound was so clear and crisp.. It was digital at its best. The album “invisible touch” was set free in 1986 by the band “Genesis” who with Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford ( mike and the mechanics ) sold over 15 million copies and made it to no1 in the UK and no3 in America. The album had the hits “invisible touch”, “land of confusion”, “in too deep” and “anything she does”. My pick of the album would be “the Brazilian” with its slathering of synths and the raw sound of the electric drums..Its the ultimate eargasm. “Invisible touch” is, in my view, one of the best 80s albums ever released.. Make sure you play it loud, Incredible sound. Track listings are =
1 = invisible touch

2 = tonight, tonight, tonight

3 = land of confusion

4 = in too deep

5 = anything she does

6 = domino / glow of the night ( live )

7 = throwing it all away

8 = the Brazilian ( live )

COLLETTE – ring my bell ( lost hit )

Hello and welcome back… In 1989, it became quiet fashionable to wear your gym wear as your normal attire…Singer Collette ( Collette Roberts ) did this very well, dancing hi-energy in her bike pants and bra top she  released “ring my bell” ( an Anita ward cover ). I don’t mind this song, it’s very catchy with the acid sound that was popular around this era , she also had another song which did well called “all i want to do is dance” and came of the same album “raze the roof”.

COLLETTE – ring my bell

MI-SEX – 79-85 ( best of )

Hello and welcome back… Yet another band that had heavy presence on countdown, Mi-sex was a New Zealand/Australian new wave band that had a huge hit called “computer games”… I found this album in the Virgin megastore in Sydney 1988 and has always been a big favorite of mine. Its chocked with hits like “but you don’t care”, “castaway”, “falling in and out”, “people”, “computer games”, “space race” and my pick of the album would be “blue day” with its moody synths and the amazing voice of Steve Gilpin.The band continued till 1984 then disbanded then Steve was working with a band called “under rapz”. In 1992 Steve was involved in a car accident and lapsed into a coma and died. The album 79-85 is a collection of 3 albums… “graffiti crimes”, “space race” and “shanghaied” and even has a best of song called “non stop sex” … Track listings are =
