Echo and a Bangles woman
January 4th, 2019 under 80s, Wet dream. [ Comments: none ]

Back in the ’80s, The Bangles, and Echo and the Bunnymen had some of the biggest songs on the huge soundtracks, but, believe it or not, the never met. That was a long time ago. Over the weekend the lead singers of both groups, Susanna Hoffs and Ian McCulloch, finally got to meet.

Who knows maybe they can combine their voices for People are Strange when the Walk Like An Egyptian? Actually, who cool would it be if both bands went on tour together? The sound is so different but yet almost the same.


A ’80s boy’s wet dream!
December 12th, 2018 under 80s, Donna Mills, Wet dream. [ Comments: none ]

Back in the ’80s, boys lusted after Greatest American Hero’s Connie Sellecca, Wheel of Fortune’s Vanna White and Knot’s Landing’s Donna Mills. What they did not know is that the three of them have been getting together almost every week for lunch for the last 24 years.

If only they knew that ahead of today, they could have been a waiter at that restaurant and had their wet dreams come true. Three for the price of one. Not only that, they would have gotten more than one tip! I won’t make that other tip joke because it is too obvious.

Back to the three ladies, can you believe that Sellecca is 63, White is 61 and Mills is 78 because they still look like they did in the ’80s. Actually, they might even look better now than they did then. What do you think?


How addictive is this dance to Soft Cell’s Tainted Love?
December 8th, 2018 under 80s. [ Comments: none ]

Back in the ’80s, everyone danced to Soft Cell’s Tainted Love, but no one came up for a dance to do it. Now, over 35 years later, Joe Kwaczala came up for a unified dance we can all do to it. Forget the Electric Side, this is a must for every wedding and Bar Mitzvah!

Now for a real challenge, try to do those moves to the original version of the song by Gloria Jones which is a lot faster. It might kill Kwaczala.


An ’80s teen girl’s wet dream: Limahl, Martin Fry and Tony Hadley!
October 9th, 2018 under 80s, Limahl, Wet dream. [ Comments: none ]

Back in the ’80s, girls were in love with the lead singers of Kajagoogoo, ABC and Spandau Ballet, but never the three should meet. Thirty years later, Limahl (in sneakers), Martin Fry and Tony Hadley (in the flip-flops) got together this weekend to play a private show at the wedding of Dina & Thomas in West London.

I wonder what songs they did from their catalogs. I am thinking it was Limahl’s Never Ending Story, ABC’s The Look of Love and Spandau Ballet’s True. Three songs I would love to hear live from them. Especially since they all still look as good as they did when those tunes were climbing charts.

If you could have any living musician play your wedding, who would it be? I am going to have to sit on my choice, but I still want Air Supply’s Making Love Out of Nothing at All as my first song as a married couple.


Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey will perform anywhere
September 28th, 2018 under 80s. [ Comments: none ]

Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey released a solo album over the summer and he has been touring around the world to promote it. Recently, he played a gig in Portland and some very lucky people got an intimate show. That is because he and the band did a warm-up show in the bathroom. The room with the best acoustics in the house.

If you are a fan of his old band, then you are going to love his new CD Science Fiction. Even though I am a die-hard Duranie, I think that Thompson Twins were the best musical group of the ’80s!
