Happy 1987!

Dear friends Dinosaurs, 1986 is over. It was a fantastic year (definitely better than 2016!), lots of things happened and we heard a lot of great music together. What’s going to happen tonight? I’ll tell you, we are going to a party full of school friends and their friends. When the temperature gets hot,

Dangerous soundtracks for Top Guns

1986 was ending, and in these days we were preparing for New Year’s Eve, of course. The only other topic in our days was “What are we going to do tonight?”, which is easier during winter holidays, because cinemas were loaded with great movies. The best movie was Top Gun,

The saddest news

Wham! – Last Christmas

“Last Christmas” sometimes can turn into a sad song. My friends, in the sweetest day, the most terrible news for 80s’ dinosaurs. I hope this is not true, but George Michael left us, aged 53. I am speechless. He was one of the absolute symbols of the 80s,

From France to the World

Desireless – Voyage Voyage

“Voyage Voyage” definitely had an impact that was possible only in the 80s. A semi-unknown French singer (we can say, absolutely unknown). She sang completely in French language. Maybe not the best way to start! Morever, Desireless, at about 35 years of age, had some sort of new-wave charm,

A world of wolves

In 1986 the world was no longer full of wolves for a-Ha, after finding success one year earlier. But Morten Harket, in his young times, had a difficult childhood ans was a victim of bullyism and other offences, and much of his social life suffered from these experiences, and he was just telling his story in this video.

The Minister of Energy

December 1986 was flowing slowly, yet it was going unstoppable towards a very welcomed Xmas. Music was always exceptional, we had plenty of fantastic songs and videos. And there he was; quite and shy at first sight, but every time he formed a new group and started to sing, it was a crash!
