A fantastic sensation

INXS – New Sensation

It’s obviously about the 30 years of “New Sensation”. I personally consider this one of the best hits by INXS. Please remember to always write INXS in capital letters :). This hit was released as a single on Mar 31, 1988, and was the third single from the album “Kick”

A boys tale

Bros – Drop the boy

Behind “Drop the boy” there was a typical boys tale. This was the topic of the Bros’ song that reached number 1 in many countries and number 2 in many others (like England). A couple of twenty-year-old boys who feel like grown-ups (the Goss twins were born in 1968),

The train to success

Looking at the video of “Love changes (Everything)”, I think that trains are really a part of pop culture. They symbolize what’s new, what’s next, the journey towards the unknown and destiny. And some decades ago it was really like this, but today we must say that,

The heart of a vampire

Pet Shop Boys – Heart

“Heart” is one of the best examples of the absolute genius of Pet Shop Boys. The song was released in mid March 1988 as the last single taken from the album “Actually”. A nice song, of course, maybe simpler than many others, at first sight,

A reckless leader

Afrika Bambaataa feat. UB40 – Reckless

“Reckless”, his most commercial song, made Afrika Bambaataa famous in the whole world, in the first part of 1988. Thanks also to the featuring of UB40, this hit climbed quickly all the charts. We also have to say that this hit was fantastic! Actually Afrika Bambaataa was definitely not an ordinary guy: he was already a successful artist in the Bronx scene,

The right time

Aswad – Don’t turn around

When I think of “Don’t turn around”, I really think that it’s so true: there is a right time for everything. If it’s not the right time for a project, there’s nothing you can do about it. If destiny says that this is the right time,
