80’s

“They’re playing good music”

It’s time for a classic hit from the 80’s, recently used on the outstanding film ‘Perks of Being a Wallflower’, which I highly recommend.

The following single, released by English pop band Dexys Midnight Runners, won Best British single at the Brit Awards. This and ‘Geno’, became their most succesful songs, hitting number one on the UK charts…

May I say Sade…

After a few days, I’m back with a voice from the 80’s. Originally born in Nigeria, this British singer-songwriter, became the frontwoman and lead vocalist in the well-known Grammy Award winning band Sade.

Solo performances of ‘Smooth Operator’,  drew attention to record companies, being Epic Records the one which finally closed the deal.

With two of her most popular and acclaimed songs, here she is, one of the most succesful solo female artists in British history, Helena Folasade Adu, better known as Sade…

“And don’t it feel good”

Such a good vibe this song. It has everything to make you dance, smile and forget about any worries, sadness or problems you may have. Being this band’s first U.S top 40 hit, this 80’s song was, is and will be a great song to remember.

Back to the 80’s with one of the best…

It’s difficult to categorize this band with one genre. They’ve gone from dark wave through new wave to post-punk and some electronic sound.

Although they started in the late 70’s, they became more and more famous with songs like ‘Just Like Heaven’ and ‘Lovesong’ in the 80’s, especially in the States.

With thirteen albums, ten EPs and quite a few singles, this band born in England has managed to build a huge music reputation, and become one of the most popular alternative rock bands in the world.

No matter how many years have gone by, they still keep going on and doing what they love and I’m sure it’s been a while since some of you listened to a song from these guys so come on, bring some nostalgia into your lives and remember what it was like…

Going back to the 80’s…

Today, I’m in the mood for some of the 80’s greatest hits and so it happens I was going down the list and found this classic which I’m sure most of you still love and though it is really from the late 70’s, I think I can make an exception.

So without further ado, I bring to you right from LA this amazing band with their first single “Hold the line” which was and still is the clear representation of Toto’s essence…
