You deserve it, Enrico!

You deserve it, Enrico!

Dear friend dinosaurs, this morning I heard on the radio a fantastic – really fantastic – interview to Enrico Ruggeri.
Fantastic singer and composer, but definitely a brilliant minded man, always careful to catch transformations and details in music and in society, always being humble,

A little bit of everyone

30 years have gone by, but I bet you still remember Boy George in this video where he looks like a bit of Pete Burns, a bit of Dusty Springfield and a bit of other stars!

A half genius and a half… genius

In these weeks in 1984 we had Duran, we had Madonna, but we also had Danny Elfman, a genius like few others, a bit of David Bowie and a bit of Annie Lennox, one of the greatest movie soundtracks composer ever, with his Oingo Boingo.

I hear voices…

What a flash!

I had completely removed those guys from my mind! Actually they were from 1981 and not 1984, but now that they’re back in my mind, I can’t really help listening to this fantastic dance hit!

A master in communication

Dear friends dinosaurs, I’ve been away for some days, and I was going to catch the plane when at the radio they were congratulating with Stevie Wonder, about to have his 12th son or so, at the age of, say, 106 years, more or less. And this has to be his sixth or seventh wife.
