Hello and welcome back.... I found this interesting..

Being a huge fan of 80s band "Thompson Twins" this video is a documentary and live set of the 1984 era about the album launch 'Into the Gap'

In a classic rags to riches story, it documents the life of a pop star that sometimes, isn't all that glamorous as it all seems and then ... The Concert, The show must go on.

LEVEL 42 - RUNNING IN THE FAMILY (Lost Hit)

Hello and welcome back.... This still sounds fresh and lively, even today..

U.K band "Level 42", to date, have released 11 albums in total (and i thought they were a one hit wonder band)...
'Running in the Family' made it to No 6 in the U.K music charts (No 83 in the U.S) but sadly couldn't match their previous single 'Lessons in Love' which shot to No3 (U.K) and No12 (U.S).

What made Level 42 stand out?
Apart from catchy sounding songs, it was the combination of quirky Bass guitar rhythms, snappy syth work (Yamaha DX7?) and catchy vocals (Mark King) with old fashioned lyric writing made 'Level 42' sounding polished and a pleasure to listen to.

Some debate as to where 'Level 42' got their name... Some say its taken from Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy (42 was the answer to the meaning of life) and some say its in relation to a carpark in China that has 42 levels... what do you think (join the discussion on Twitter @Electronic80s1)

TOMMY TUTONE - 8675309 / JENNY (Lost Hit)

Hello and welcome back..... One hit wonder back in 1982 for U.S band "Tommy Tutone"

The song became so popular that people in the United States to this day dial this telephone number and ask for Jenny as a prank. Regarding the famous number, "We had people threatening to sue us. It was the Buffalo Chief of Police's daughter's number in New York," said frontman Tommy Heath. (thanks to Wikipedia for the info)

Such an awesome song, one that I never get sick of hearing... enjoy

TOMMY TUTONE - 8675309 / JENNY



OK, MY GRIPE
Here in Australia, we have to put up with alot of things, being ripped off from Apple (products / Itunes prices are like double the price of America regardless if our dollar is strong) amongst other things, and it seems were not good enough to watch videos.. Seriously??
I was going to put the original video of this song on this post, but no.. Its blocked
Absolutely pathetic. @VEVO


Gripe over
