RUSH - TIME STANDS STILL

Hello and welcome back.... 3 things i love about the band 'Rush' in the 80s

1. At the start of the 80s, Rush Drummer 'Neil Peart' started incorporating electronic drums into their music.

2. Also, the start of the 80s, the band started to introduce more synthesizers into their music, depending who you talk to, this was either a good thing or a bad thing... (i say good because i love synths but die hard rock fans weren't impressed)

3. Their music sounds different... If you have ever heard of Rush, you will know that their writing style is amazing, the song changes so many times and i think, this is what keeps their music interesting.
Time Stands Still is from their 1987 album 'Hold Your Fire' and is a good example of Rush's writing style and dare i say, one of their best tracks...

Part of the chorus of Time Stands Still is sung by Til Tuesday's 'Aimee Mann' (Think Voices Carry)

MR MISTER - HUNTERS OF THE NIGHT

Hello and welcome back... Hunters of the Night was from Mr Mister's 1984 album 'I Wear the Face'

Released in 1984, Hunters of the Night made it to No57 on the Music Charts

This was Mr Misters first single and set the tone for bigger things to happen = the release of their 1985 'Welcome to the Real World' album. (ONE OF MY FAVS :))

80s TV SHOWS - NEW WEBSITE

Hello and welcome back... I have started a new website..

Lately, i have been catching up on some 80s TV shows.
TV shows like Magnum P.I, The A-Team, Airwolf, Steethawk, Miami Vice & Knight Rider... Just to name a few and it got me to thinking.

Wouldn't it be great to have a website that has all these great 80s TV shows all in the one place?
So I have created this site = 80s TV SHOWS

First show under the spotlight is Airwolf :)

The idea is to make available the pilot (first) episode and then another good episode available so you can remember what these awesome shows were about.

In regards to copyright, I don't plan on pirating episodes, its for fair use only, just to remember.
Sure, if you like what you see then go out and buy (if they're available) the seasons on DVD.

I would also like to ask for a 'Buy me a Coffee' donation, any amount big or small is much appreciated. Its also great for motivation :)  and to know that what i'm doing, that someone out there, appreciates the time and effort required to do these sites.

Hope you like the new site
