Last week, and thirty years ago

Dear friends, today we are going to speak about last week, rather than three decades ago. But after all it’s quite the same: you have surely read about the start of the new tour of a very peculiar and very eightish singer and woman, Kate Bush.

Kate is definitely one of a kind: despite having been a singer for 30 or 35 years,

No more mid seasons

and no more summer as well, given the amount of rain we had in northern Italy this supposed-to-be summer.
But maybe we had a terrible summer 30 years ago as well, at least in the videos of the newly released songs of the time! This one for example was literally history,

Will you call me or what?

At the end of the story, we never got to know who called first. We’ve been wondering for thirty years, but who cares! At the end, what matters is that we are still hearing this song since 1984!! And in 1984 you could really hear it everywhere and in every moment!!

…and when Ibiza was over…

…everybody on the Andes with la Colegiala!! And this funny clown named Gary Low, who definitely was not a Sandy Marton, but he also needs to be credited for something: sometimes I think that the whole latin music wave that started in the 80s, after all, began with this very song!!

When we had no @Facebook, no #Twitter, no Instagram,

The king of summer festival

In 1984? No doubts! This guy was the king, after dropping all the one-year-old rocking rolling, he deserved a break with cigarettes and coffee…
But itìs hard to acknowledge the change in the nickname of Shalpy Scialpi, I won’t give up on this…

#quotefromthe80s

la nebbia scende non ti vedo più

Fighting tribes

Frankie Goes To Hollywood – Two tribes

“Two tribes” debuted in Summer 1984, just few months after the incredible success of “Relax”. I think was the purest and best period of the 80s overall. The title does not refer to particular tribes. Holly Johnson and the group said that it could be Cowboys and Indians,
