Summer memories

Sabrina – Sexy girl

“Sexy Girl”, in 1986, marked probably the first big hit of the Queen of 80s summer. Like in these days, summer is ending, days getting shorter, temperature getting lower… bad times. In 1986 this was a depressed period too! The only thing you could do was staying stuck to the last memories of a great summer,

A very long walk

Bangles – Walk like an Egyptian

Walk like an Egyptian, that is, but always in line. In fact, as the song says, in line like egyptians. This great Bangles’ song was born after seeing paople walking in line on a ferry, trying to keep balance. And it also feature scenes of Lady Di and Gaddafi in the video…

The problems of suburbs

It was really a problem already in the 80s. Suburbs, banlieues, favelas, in many zones entering a suburban zone at the wrong time can be a real danger! Of course, it all depends: if you enter Suburbia, you might end up meeting the Pet Shop Boys!!

No return from success

Nu Shooz – Point of no return

1986 was definitely a golden year for Nu Shooz. Few months after the great success of “I can’t wait”, Valerie and John succeeded again with another song taken from their album “Poolside”. They really found a point of no return for their career: with this song they entered in the history of that wonderful decade.

Street rumours

Strange group, the Timex Social Club! Real meteors, but really strong! Fantastic song, very soul and very eighty, cool video. But they were really professional meteors: every couple of months a member of the crew went out or in, and they often changed their name as well! That’s why, after the season of just one album,
