…and let’s talk about him!

It’s true that in November 1986, thirty years ago, Yazoo had already disbanded, but you could find separately in the charts both Alison Moyet, as we previously saw, and Vince Clarke! Vince was really, in my humble opinion, one of the most important characters of the 80s: founder and member of Depeche Mode,

Let’s talk about her…

A queen of the 80s. But also of 90s, of 00s and of these 10s. A Peculiar woman, so clever, so smart, she became famous in the early 80s as the female voice of Yazoo (Yaz in the US), and then she went for a fantastic solo career, just as fantastic as her voice.

30 years ago, when this song was relase, the Tigress Tina Turner was probably entering her Sunset Boulevard, after the beautiful pages of Typical Male and We don’t need another hero…. But, nowadays 30 more years have gone by, but the Sunset hasn’t come yet!!!

The story of Tommy and Gina

Bon Jovi – Livin’ on a prayer

“Livin’ on a prayer” starts with the story of Tommy and Gina. Maybe it doesn’t mean much to you, maybe they were two average ordinary guys, but they definitely were in the right place at the right time. That is, in the first verses of a fantastic song,

A swinging sister

Do you remember Swing Out Sister? I think so, maybe for this song, indeed their greatest success, of for the sharp haircut of Corinne, voice and front image of the group. She was a fashion designer, and actually her outfit was quite peculiar. Today, after thirty years, she’s a lady not too changed in years,
