COLDCUT – doctorin’ the house ( lost hit )

Hello and welcome back.. In the late 80s i was lucky enough to be old enough to visit nightclubs when the acid scene was just coming out… This song is one of the first songs i heard. Vocals on this song are done by Yazz ( think “only way is up” ) with snippets from the tv show “Plastic man”. This song made it to no6 in the music charts and stayed there for 4 weeks and was also on the compilation album “video hits”..
Classic acid with a pumping beat.. Love the 80s.

ALPHAVILLE – forever young

Hello and welcome back…Ever now and then you stumble across an album that, from start to finish is a real treat.. This album is one of them.. Just about every song on this album is a musical journey and its one that never loses time. A friend of mine lent me a copy and i was hooked.. I had heard of the main song before “forever young” but it has a slather of other worthy songs like “big in japan”, “sounds like a melody”,” the jet set”, and “summer in Berlin” which is my pick of the album with its sweeping melody’s and frisky beats… I could almost close my eyes and imagine driving through the German country side in summer time. This album was let loose in 1984 and went to no 8 in the U.K and no 5 in Europe.. For me a 10/10 album..

AN EXCELLENT APP

Hello, and welcome back.. As a lover of 80s music and owner of a iPhone i have came across a app worth checking out.. Some 80s music sounds flat because the recording process ( mp3/aac ) but this app adds a vibrancy to your sounds.. called “EQU the quality equalizer ”  it adds equalization But it also has a surround type sound that really brings your music to life.. It sells for $2.99 and after trying about every app available, this one has replaced the normal music player on my player.. Worth every cent.. cheers.

Note = this post is my own view and i do not own or have anything to do with the owner of this terrific app.. I am a huge believer that if a product is of excellent quality then its worth spreading the word & no, i’m not getting paid for this. 

BALTIMORA – tarzan boy ( lost hit )

Hello and welcome back… A fun song with a Tarzan call for a chorus is basically what this song is all about. Came out around 1985 and went under the banner of “italo disco”… also went to no 5 in the music charts in Italy, Germany & Denmark. Baltimora is actually a band with lead singer being Irish singer “Jimmy McShane” … Sadly jimmy died in 1995.. For me i love the cat noise at the end of the chorus .. funny stuff.. enjoy
