ROXY MUSIC - SAME OLD SCENE (Lost Hit)

Hello and welcome back.... One of my fav songs from "Roxy Music".

Released in 1980, 'Same Old Scene' made it to No12 on the U.K music charts and was from the 'Flesh and Blood' album.

One thing that got my attention was that 'Paul Carrack' (Mike and the Mechanics, Squeeze) played Strings (Synth) on this song (can be seen at 2.25 video).
Roxy Music was a heavy user of the 'Prophet' Synthesizer, those lush background sounds are evident on this album.

Such a stunning song, a real sound of the 80s.

PAUL HARDCASTLE - 19 (Lost Hit)

Hello and welcome back.... This 1985 song by U.K musician "Paul Harcastle" made it to No1 in the music charts in 13 country's around the world.

That's pretty good for a song based on the Vietnam War.

This song was inspired by Paul after a bike accident left him bedridden for 4 months, during that time he watched a documentary called 'Vietnam Requiem', It was about Post-traumatic stress disorder suffered by veterans of war.

Add some sounds & samples from a E-mu Emulator Synth (Samples from the Documentary), add the now famous catchy 'n-n-n-n-nineteen' vocal effect  and you have the song "19"

Mike Oldfield later sued Paul Hardcastle over the similarities between this and his song "Tubular Bells.
