ITALOVE - FOLLOW ME TO MEXICO (Sounds like the 80s)

Hello and welcome back....Lovers of Italo Disco will drool over this, The Swedish band "Italove" remind me of the 80s Italo Disco sound, So Melodic and Lush...

Three musicians make up Italove...A love for 80s Italo disco and HI-NRG music.

Those 3 musicians are  Dr Mateo, Blix and LaRoxx... These guys sound awesome. 

Italove have also done a remake of "Black's - Wonderful life" sounding very synth driven..

This is one band to keep a eye on over 2013... Just wish more bands sounded like this....Mine included :)

The only other video clip to this song shows them live on music show "Countdown" but the 'share' function is disabled??... what the point, Youtube is all about sharing, some people just don't get it.
That's my rant for today :)

For Me, I live in the 80s and music like this, just makes it so much better.... I call it my 'Happy' music, Its so lush...

My favorite song would be 'With you Tonight'... This is the sound that makes 'FM Attack' stand out from the crowd and yell..."Ive got a freakin Time Machine" and I'm not afraid to use it..

Pure Bliss... A 10/10 album.

PETER SCHILLING - MAJOR TOM (Coming Home) (Lost Hit)

Hello and welcome back.....Originally sung by David Bowie..."Major Tom (Coming Home)" was redone by German singer "Peter Schilling" in 1983.

This single was plucked from Peters album called 'Error in the System - (Fehler im System (German))' and made it to No 1 in German music charts.

Another remake of this song was done by U.S. band "Shiny Toy Guns" which was used in a 2010 TV commercial for Lincoln MKZ cars.
The sound is stunning and looks amazing, if you have a listen, turn it up loud... One word = Palpable.

SCANDAL (Ft Patty Smyth) - THE WARRIOR (Lost Hit)

Hello and welcome back....U.S band "Scandal", released this killer song back in 1984.
'The Warrior' made it to No 7 on the music charts and featured 'Patty Smyth' on vocals, sadly just after this single saw light, the group 'Scandal' broke up and headed separate ways.

Just after the split, Patty was asked to front 'Van Halen', replacing David Lee Roth... She declined.

Patty is now married to tennis star John McEnroe (Think...Are you Serious...The Ball was OUT).

An excellent 80s song with a stunning sound.. Enjoy

ROMEO VOID - GIRL IN TROUBLE (Is a Temporary Thing) (Lost Hit)

Hello and welcome back.... U.S band from California had this quirky hit with "Girl in Trouble (Is a temporary thing)" back in 1984.

I remember hearing this song played alot on 2SM in Sydney Australia...It had such a good sound.

Girl in Trouble reached No 35 on the Billboard top 100 music charts.

If I close my eyes, listening to this song, I can remember summer 1984, laying besides my next door neighbors pool listening to the radio and having fun....Miss those days :)

CELEBRATE THE NUN - WLL YOU BE THERE (Lost Hit)

Hello and welcome back....German band "Celebrate the Nun" had this awesome song,'Will you be There' back in 1989 that made it to No 5 on the Billboard Dance charts.
Lovers of hardcore electronic music will recognize the lead singer (H.P Baxxter) aka 'Scooter'...(Think 'The Logical song' &'Nessaja')
'Will you be There' was let loose from the 1990 album "Meanwhile"....
Such an excellent song / band that went on to produce a more faster hardcore electronic music (Well, they had to start somewhere)... Enjoy.
