Rapture: don't like in generaljio wrote:I am not a huge fan of Bucks Fizz but they released their best song IMO in 1982 so you might see them there (not sure the lists are not complete yet). And they were scoring hits until the end of the decade so there are plenty of countdowns for them to appear.
You do not like "Rapture" in general or just because she is rapping?
Oooh sounds like I might like it then! I've read bout Sylvester before will check them out!jio wrote:Do you know disco music, right?... Well around 1980-1981, the americans (and to a lesser extent everyone else) decided that it was too gay to exist so it dissapeared from the charts. It went underground (mostly to gay clubs and gay-friendly crowds) and became what is known as Hi-NRG or Italo-disco. In the late '80s it became popular again. See Divine or Sylvester or Amanda Lear and you'll see what I mean
Just watched Divine!! the gayest chart on here I love it!jio wrote:Yeah, he was a darlin'. Singing like Aretha and looking like Grace Jones. Shame he left us too sooncrazycrazy wrote:listening to Sylvester now he sings like Aretha Franklin!! Funky though!
Yeah, that song is so underrated. It's up there with the other classics as ABBA perfection to me (and I consider it better than many of their more well-known songs). I guess it flopped because it was too disco for 1982. Love itAlexZ wrote:My favs:
ABBA - Head Over Hills
Great song and Belinda Carlisle is so cute thereAlexZ wrote:The Go-Goes - We Got The Beat
Actually I was thinking about MCNL when I told you there might be Bucks Fizz for 1982 but then I heard this one (which I had never heard before) and I loved it. I now think it's their best song. Btw, I do understand why you like them, I think Steps were massive fans because they look and sound so much like Bucks Fizz lol. By the way, if you like Bucks Fizz and Steps, you should check out Dollar, they are very similar to themAlexZ wrote:+ very interesting choice for Bucks Fizz. I thought, that it would be 'My Camera Never Lies'
There is no way you don't know the Joan Jett song. As for the others, you have to listen to them they are great and I am sure you will love Kim Wilde since you like Blondie and Madonna. It's very similar music, check her outAlexZ wrote:Joan Jett, Kim Wilde, Stevie Nicks are very famous names, but I don't know these tracks.
The first version of that song I ever heard was by some girl named Lolly lol.AlexZ wrote:I was sure, that this is original song :
Hey Mickey (Girl version from movie 'Bring It On')
