Not a deejay…

Spagna – Every girl and boy

“Every girl and boy” definitely made us dance, this is a fact. She was not a deejay, I mean, but even in Summer 1988 Spagna made all of us dance with her fantastic hit. This hit was a pillar of that fantastic summer of 30 years ago.

All of her in her work!

Sabrina – All of me

“All of me” marked the closing days of the fantastic summer of 1988. We have not mentioned yet the undiscussed Queen of summer hits in those years. During our adventure of living the 80s again year after year, we met her several times. We talked about “

Ciao Summer!

Ciao Fellini – La mia banda suona il rock

“La mia banda suona il rock” did not play the role of a real summer hit, al least in the original version. Ivano Fossati released the hit in 1979, not really good times, at least in Italy. And maybe Fossati did not give all possible success to the hit.

A party out of time

Gipsy Kings – Bamboleo

“Bamboleo” is definitely one of the hits created at the end of the 80s. The Gipsy Kings wrote and published it first in 1987, and then reissued it in Europe in mid 1988. It became quickly one of the soundtracks of Summer 1988. So we can definitely talk about this hit while we talk about the summer hits of 1988.

Summer takes off!

S’Express – Superfly Guy

“Superfly guy” is the typical hit that, at the end of the 80s, really played the sound of summer. It’s still like that: summer, holidays, night clubs on the beach, resorts on Greek, Italian, and Spanish coasts getting incredibly crowded, and by midnight the fun could take off!
