BEST TRACKS Part two

Hello and welcome back.... Continuing with the 'Best Tracks' posts, what songs i love, can't stop listening to and why.
Sometimes a song is not just a song, there's meaning behind a particular sound or sometimes its the video, a lot of effort goes into some videos and they can make or break a track...Hope you enjoy


PROPAGANDA - DUEL

Such a amazing track, from 1985, German band 'Propaganda' had a huge hit with the track 'Duel'. Using the band Kraftwerk as inspiration, this track made it to No21 in the U.K music charts.
I love the vocals in this song, so powerful and rich and the various array of sounds that play through till the end... It deserves to be in this list, i love it.

THE ADVENTURES - SEND MY HEART

Why, Why, Why wasn't this track (and band) bigger than they were?. This track is pure heaven.
From the lush guitar work, the honey like vocals and the sweet melodies this is one track i can listen to over and over.
Came out around 1985 and was from the album 'Theodore and Friends'. Just about all the tracks on this album are brilliant, well worth adding to your collection if you don't already have it.

FUN FUN - BAILA BOLERO

Such a fun song, released around 1986 by Italio Disco outfit 'Fun Fun'.
Love the video, the 2 singers in the video makes this track even better. The girl in the black top really works the camera and looks stunning, as does the girl in the white top but she looks a little lost... now, where did that camera go?

JEAN BEAUVOIIR - FEEL THE HEAT

Another track where not only the song is wicked but so is the album its from. Jean Beauvoir's huge hit from 1986 called 'Feel the Heat' from the 'Drums Across the Mohawk' album. This track also featured in the closing credits on the Sylvester Stallone movie 'Cobra'... Its pure power, from the guitars, silky synths and that Mohawk, wow, awesome Mohawk.
Pump it up.

VANESSA PARADIS - JOE LE TAXI

This track, i simply love. The sweet sound of soft synth, a little sax, and the honey like vocals of a very young 'Vanessa Paradis'. I think she was about 14 or 15 in this clip.
'Joe le Taxi' was written for Vanessa by two writers (Franck Langolff and √Čtienne Roda-Gil) about a taxi driver called Joe (obvious) who knows everything about France, likes rum and dreams of going to the Amazon. It made it to No2 in the U.K music charts (No1 in France) in 1987.
Close your eyes and be taken to sunny France on a summers afternoon.
Simply stunning
