Citizen of the world

Scialpi – No east no west

“No East No West” somehow anticipated important topics by decades. Already in the eighties Scialpi had no preference between east and west, or north and south, or any continent. The great Scialpi presented this song in Sanremo four months before the summer,

The little girl

Well, as we can see in this video, Sandra was indeed a grown up and very famous little girl! 🙂 But she was definitely a star of the 80s!

In Italy on holidays
She had to see Da Vinci’s style
All the arts for credit cards

From the Book of Genesis

Genesis always fascinated me: three fantastic artists (Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks, and an old friend of ours), who were probably born somehow too early, but who left an undeletable mark on pop music. And yet they were able to be and play very funny too, like in this video where our friend sings in the drum sticks,

Not the only queens of the 80s, but they definitely left an unerasable mark on the 80s, from their early songs to this unforgettable cover, and today we hear the covers of this cover! Fantastic! Siobhan, Sara and Keren still live in the 80s and have great fun (actually Siobhan is not involved),

High and low

After all it was somehow their history: worldwide success at the beginning, never to be reached again, due to an unreachable video and song, followed however by some years of fame and some other good hits, like this!

She’s sound asleep and she’s sweeter now
Than the wildest dream could have seen her
And I Watch her slipping away

The great season of politics

In the 80s? We had Arcadia’s Election Day… Re-Flex’s The Politics of Dancing.. and syndicates? Oh, we were strong: we had the most teasing and trasgressive syndicates of the world: Hong Kong Syndikat!

A world of opportunities

I was thinking that today the word opportunity is quite common, which is probably normal when things are not really great: everything becomes a big opportunity, everyone proposes you great opportunities… But already #30yrsago someone was talking about opportunities in a very clear way! Who could it be,
