A memory of the King

Like every year at the end of June we celebrate the King of the 80s. Six years without him few days ago, even if he had retired from the scenes long before. But we know he is always with us dinosaurs!

If this town
Is just an apple
Then let me take a bite

The motorway song

Dear friend dinosaurs, 30 years ago the charts included a “song from the Big Chair”, Tears for Fears’ masterpiece.

Peter Gabriel – Games without frontiers

Games without frontieres. Really, nobody forgot this glamorous tv-show! Dear Dinosaurs, exactly 30 years ago maybe we spent afternoons partying in the swimming pools. Actually, in a remote village in the middle of Europe, something memorable happened. In fact, a handful of countries signed some documents which really impacted our lives of today: the Schengen Agreements.

The king gives another try

Sandy Marton – Camel by camel

Had you been the king of summer 1984 with “People from Ibiza”, wouldn’t you try releasing one more disco hit at the beginning of following summer? After all, you have a strong team with a talent scout like Claudio Cecchetto supporting you, you are tall,

The magic recipe

Belouis Some – Imagination

“Imagination” follows the golden rule to become a popstar in the 80s. An artist needed:

– a weird but good sounding name
– to appear almost unknown (wikipedia does not exist in 1985)
