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..

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..
Track listings are =

1 = A victory of love ( not original video ) ( thanks to TheRosePhantom for the video )

2 = Summer in Berlin ( Thanks again TheRosePhantom for brilliant work on the video )

3 = Big in Japan

4 = To Germany with love

5 = Fallen angel

6 = Forever young

7 = In the mood

8 = Sounds like a melody

9 = Lies

10 = The jet set

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
