LYRICS

Saw you flying by
Flash of Turquoise Blue
I just had to try
To keep your life in view

My bird of paradise
Sweet bird of paradise

Wish that I could fly
I'd be beside you now
But I can only sigh
And watch you circle round

My bird of paradise
Sweet bird of paradise
My bird of paradise
Sweet bird of paradise
My bird of paradise

So you fly away
When will you come again
So I can watch you play
In the pouring rain

My bird of paradise
Sweet bird of paradise
My bird of paradise
Sweet bird of paradise
My bird of paradise

HIT LIST - INTO THE FIRE

From the U.K came this wicked track...

Decent beat with slathering of guitar twangs leave you wanting more. From 1986.

Rumor has it, Into the Fire was released in 1985 but Virgin records pulled it from airplay because of a nasty fire broke out in Bradford City football stadium, U.K killing 56 people.
Record execs deemed it insensitive and pulled the track.

A year later it was re-released.

A rare hit...

THE ADVENTURES - SEND MY HEART

Hello and welcome back.... Love this Track..

Irish band 'The Adventures' had this awesome sounding single back in 1984, from the album 'Theodore and Friends' (made it to No 24 on the German music charts, 62 in U.K)

Seriously this gives me chills.. its that good.. The snappy guitar twangs, lush melodies and stunning vocals just make me want to listen over and over.

Turn the lights down, close your eyes and turn up loud... Pure Bliss

That's something
I wipe the tears from your eyes.
Say nothing and still you seem so surprised.
Though tears fall like rain
It's gone too far.

Keep saying
It's time to break it
The tears and the pain and the tears and the pain.
This music keeps running through my head now
Ooh.
I'm climbing out
I'm drifting away from you.

Aaaaah just send my heart
Aaaaah my heart

Aaaaah just send my heart
Aaaaah
And now I find a second time.

There's nothing
Nothing I would not give for you.
No feelings is all I have to show now
Ooh.
Don't say who's to blame
Is this still a game for you?
Aaaaah just send my heart
Aaaaah my heart

Aaaaah just send my heart
Aaaaah my heart

Aaaaah just send my heart
Aaaaah just send my heart
Aaaaah.

KIDS IN THE KITCHEN

Hello and welcome back.... Thought i would take a look at some of the bands that i loved when growing up through the 80s...

First band is 'Kids in the Kitchen'

Formed in 1983, 'the kids' as they were sometimes known, were a Melbourne band and had huge success during 1983 - 1987 period. They were heavily influence by bands like Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet... They were in the same frame as Real Life, Pseudo Echo & Dear Enemy.

During this time they release their 1985 album 'Shine' and its an album i still listen to. Its a good blend of melodic guitars, fresh sounding synths and perfected vocals from front man 'Scott Carne'.
Around 1987 saw the album 'Terrain' released before the band split and went their separate ways.

If you have never heard of 'Kids in the Kitchen' take a listen, its a band i love, with cleverly crafted tracks that you can listen to, over and over again.


CHANGE IN MOOD  (1983)




CURRENT STAND  (1985)




BITTER DESIRE  (1984)




SOMETHING THAT YOU SAID  (1985)

FUTURE WORLD ORCHESTRA - I'M NOT AFRAID OF THE FUTURE

Hello and welcome back....

Who's afraid of the future?.... Not these guys, well, that was back in 1982.

From the dutch Synth group 'Future World Orchestra' came this trippy little number called 'I'm not afraid of the Future' which was released in 1982...  It made it to No 26 in the top 40 music charts.
I'm not afraid of the Future was from the album 'Mission Completed' by Dureco Benelux records.

Future World Orchestra used a number of Synthesizers in their music including the Arp2600, Korg-3100, Korg-MS20, Polymoog & the Arp Sequencer.
They were inspired by bands like Genesis, Emerson, Lake and Palmer and Yes.

Enjoy some rare early Synth from Future World Orchestra...

BIG PIG - BREAKAWAY

Hello and welcome back.... So love this song

At one stage, Australian band Big Pig had 8 drummers to their name giving them that... 'Industrial sound' with this amazing pulsing bass line... Sounding Wicked

From 1988 came the album 'Bonk' and from it came this smashing tune 'Breakaway'

Breakaway made it to No4 on the Australian music charts (No60 in the U.S.) while also making an appearance in several films around 1988-89 including Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and Young Einstein.

Make sure you crank it loud, you wont be disappointed

DAVID BOWIE - DEAD AT 69

Hello and welcome back for another year...

Starts with a sad note with the death of music icon 'David Bowie' who passed away on 10th January 2016 from liver cancer


The master of re-invention was diagnosed 18 months ago but managed to keep it a secret from fans which shocked many (including me) with the news of his death.

The impact of what David Bowie had on the music industry was huge, actually, that's a understatement.

The influence on many guitarists, synth players, or any musician of the 70/80s nearly all stated they were influenced by non other than David Bowie.

The early 80s New Romantic / New Wave movement was one of the most influenced, not just by his music but also his fashion sense and the uncanny knack of being able to 'look to the future / look like the future'

On a personal note, I was particularly fond of Bowie's 1983 album 'Lets Dance' which spawned the tracks China Girl, Modern Love & Lets Dance.
Summer, 1983, lounging besides the swimming pool at my girlfriends place listening to radio station 2SM (Rock of the 80s) with Bowie's 'Modern Love' pumping from the speakers.... Life was such an amazing feeling back then, something i will never forget.

Such a sad loss...

R.I.P David Bowie (David Robert Jones)
