Almost everything…

Everything But The Girl – When all’s well

“When all’s well” gave worldwide success to a group with a peculiar name. Everything…but the girl! In these very days on 1985 Everything But The Girl (or simply EBTG) released “Love and money”, one of their best albums. Tracey Thorn had this look so minimal but was a fantastic singer,

Tragedies

Dear friends, last weekend we all were reached by the sad news coming from Nepal; big tragedies that we can hardly understand. Looking at those images, my mind went back to this song of 1985, not much for the oriental subject, but rather for some kind of atmosphere, as to say…

The sound of freedom

We were saying that 30 years ago, in these very days of April 1985, for the first time a western pop group was allowed to tour China for some concerts. Just like in the nonsense funny movie “Top Secret” of 1986, where pop star Nick Rivers (a very young Val Kilmer) was invited by GDR to have a concert in East Berlin,

All started from there…

Dear friends Dinosaurs, great things were happening in this beginning of April 1985: David Lee Roth left Van Halen, a western pop group performed for the first time in China… such bigh things! But the greatest was happening right 30 years ago today: on April 10, 1985, in Seattle took off the first tour of the queen of the 80s…

Young in age and name

Few weeks ago we already listened to the most representative track of the album, so now, have a good night all you Dinosaurs with the great Paul Young and this other fantastic track!
