DEAD OR ALIVE – thats the way i like it ( best of )

Hello and welcome back… Spanning all the 80s hits, this compilation from “Dead or alive” covers all the best songs that i grew up with. I also like the sound quality of the album… sounds very clear and polished. Dead or alive front-man “Pete Burns” has to me, one of the best voices and it reins supreme in this best of,which includes hits like “spin me round”, “my heart goes bang”, “brand new lover”, “save you all my kisses”, and my pick of the album “brand new lover” with its melodic synths and lyrics you can sing to.. this is a brilliant album… Must say a special thanks to for the link… his selection of music is mind blowing, Make sure if you download this album to say thanks for his brilliant work.. It only takes 2 seconds of your time.. cheers

ROUGH TRADE – all touch ( lost hit )

Hello and welcome back… What a great song.. The sexually charged “all touch” was sung by the Canadian band ” Rough Trade ” and was their first 1981 U.S hit. The lead singer ( Carole Pope ) has one of the best raunchy voices in music ( i think ) which matched her attire sometimes , often seen strutting the stage in her bondage gear and singing lesbian themes… You go girl… compared to some of her other videos, this is quiet tame.. cheers

SO many memories .. CLICK HERE to download the album ” for those who think young ” and album “shaking the foundations “… Massive thanks to “” for the links.. enjoy


Hello and welcome back… Possibly the best era for music.. Ever.( me thinks ).. for me, As a synth loving dude, i loved this era.. The “new romantic” era starting roughly 1980 – 84 and with punk now dead ( kind of )..clubs around London  ( Blitz & st Moritz ) started to cater for a different taste, fronted by heavy synths, big hair and puffy pirate shirts … Bands like “Adam & the ants”, “spandau ballet”, “ABC”, and “Duran Duran” took to this scene like a duck to water… In Australia we had similar bands ( “real life”, “pseudo echo”, “dear enemy” and “kids in the kitchen” ) that were sort of in this “new romantic” category.. So i have decided, for your musical pleasure to look at my top 10 “New romantic” bands and remember the best era of synth music.. enjoy..
