MAD3NNA - LIKE A VIRGIN (Japanese CD Version)

Hello and welcome back... One of the best albums of the 80s.

Madonna's second album, which spawned 5 singles including 'Material Girl', 'Angel', 'Like a Virgin', 'Dress You Up' and 'Love Don't Live Here Anymore'.



'Like A Virgin' made it to #1 across Europe, U.K and U.S all except Australia, that was #2 in the Music Charts.
Produced by Nile Rogers (Chic) except 'Into the Groove' (Stephen Bray)

For me this album is what made Madonna, her best work?, maybe, although 'True Blue' probably is one of her best (in my opinion) but this album rates a close second.


TRACK LIST

01 Material Girl (4:01)
02 Angel (3:56)
03 Like A Virgin (3:38)
04 Over And Over (4:12)
05 Love Don't Live Here Anymore (4:48)
06 Dress You Up (4:01)
07 Shoo-Bee-Doo (5:17)
08 Pretender (4:30)
09 Stay (4:06)

FL3WERS - ICEHOUSE

Hello and welcome back... The album that started it all.

Almost 8 years to the day, I started a blog / website about an album that i love.

Around 2010, i had to stop work due to various problems and suddenly had lots of free-time on my hands, going from working 50+ hours a week to not working at all... What to do?
And so, Electronic80s was born

Released in 1980, Flowers (Icehouse) - Icehouse was ahead of its time.

The band Flowers later changed to the name 'Icehouse' as there was already a band in Scotland called 'Flowers'

Lush moody synths, rhythmic guitars and a young Iva Davis on vocals, this was a start of something wonderful.

The Album 'Icehouse' spawned 4 singles including 'We Can Get Together', 'Icehouse', 'Walls' & 'Can't Help Myself'. and made it to #4 on the Australian Music Charts (#84 in the U.S)

My favorite track would have to be 'Boulevard', its such a good song and could have been a single.




TRACK LISTINGS (Original 1980 Australian album) (320Kbps AAC)

01. Icehouse (4:22)
02. We Can Get Together (3:46)
03. Fatman (3:53)
04. Sister (3:22)
05. Walls (4:22)
06. Can't Help Myself (4:41)

MAD3NNA - LIKE A PRAYER (JAPAN EDITION)

Hello and welcome back... One of Madonna's best albums?

In a survey done recently, 'Like A Payer' scored the highest in the 'Best' album category...

To better this, I Present the Japanese Release of 'Like a Prayer'



Released in 1989, Like A Prayer (album) scored a staggering six singles including 'Like A Prayer', Express Yourself (no, its not about breastfeeding, my bad)', 'Cherish', 'Dear Jessie', 'Oh Father' & 'Keep It Together'

The album made it to #1 all around the world, except for 1 place (actually 2 if you count New Zealand)... Yep, that's right, Australia only made it to #4 on the music charts.

For me, this album was a milestone in my life, I had my bike accident (see previous post) only weeks before this album came out, and remember laying in a uncomfortable hospital bed for 4 months listening to the song 'Cherish' every Saturday & Sunday (Thank You Rage & Video Hits).
Its funny as you don't miss something till its gone, but i longed to frolick in the beach like in the video clip, but that was not to happen till about a year later.

This is one of my favorite albums (this and 'True Blue')


TRACK LIST
01. Like A Prayer (5:41)
02. Express Yourself (4:39)
03. Love Song (4:52)
04. Till Death Do Us Part (5:18)
05. Promise To Try (3:38)
06. Cherish (5:04)
07. Dear Jessie (4:20)
08. Oh Father (4:58)
09. Keep It Together (5:03)
10. Spanish Eyes (5:17)
11. Act Of Contrition (2:19)

FUNDING DRIVE

Hello and welcome back...

I will say this first... I hate asking for money

But, sadly its what makes the world go round, it also helps support websites like this, not only in extra storage but music content... Good quality music content, mostly from original CDs using AAC 320kbps files... This costs money

Why don't you go out to work? i hear you ask..

Sadly my working days are behind me, thanks to several medical problems, i wont bore you with details but it involved a car going 90kmph and a bike (i was on the bike).. A smashed pelvis, back problems, shoulder problem, ect, ect... = Pain and more pain now is a part of my life, but im not ungrateful, im alive and i have music, dont get me wrong, i can still do a few thing, but God, it hurts.

Proof i hear you say, photo or it didn't happen... see below

 This was me, spending 4 months in hospital with 4 breaks to my pelvis

The scar that you see here was because of internal bleeding, when the pelvis broke, it cut the main arteries to my legs that then bleed into my stomach, died twice and 24 blood transfusions later.


So, where are i going with this?

What i'm asking is for donations this weekend to keep the content coming in, and to help with storage costs. In return i will provide this site and you guys (music lovers) with interesting and sometimes rare versions of albums in high quality for your enjoyment.

All i ask this weekend, is that if you like this site, just click on the "Shout Me A Coffee Fund" on the top right corner of this site and donate $5 or $10 (or more) and it only takes 30 seconds to do but it means so much to me...

Like i said at the start, i hate having to ask for money, but it goes a long way to make life enjoyable and if i can give something back (interesting, high quality music for you to enjoy) then my job is done.

Thanks for reading, and letting me share a small portion of my life with you..


Back to regular Posts shortly
