    • 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?

          Rapture: don't like in general
          Bucks Fizz: So, it would be their second album 'Are You Ready?' with 2 # 1 hits in UK (The Land of Make Believe, My Camera Never Lies) and 'Now Those Days Are Gone'. Good choice.

                • 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

                          • I don't know disco era well, but German pop group Arabesque is my favourite. Group was very popular in Soviet Union and Japan. They had 9 albums between 1978 and 1984.

                            Arabesque - In for a Penny In for a Pound
                            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqoYDzB2vDE
                            They are good choice for my next personal countdowns.

                            Never heard Nolans before. UK girlband!!! How I can miss it?

                            • I don't know them at all but the song I am listening is euro-disco and not Hi-NRG. Hi-NRG is more 80s than 70s. Think more Modern Talking than Boney M., I don't know how to explain it without you listening to the songs. It has similarities with disco (lots) but it's not really disco

                              • I have full MP3 collection from Arabesque on CD.
                                About YouTube: Sometimes I can watch it, but with pauses every 10-15 seconds and only songs with static pictures (not videoclips).

                                      • My favs:
                                        ABBA - Head Over Hills
                                        The Go-Goes - We Got The Beat
                                        + very interesting choice for Bucks Fizz. I thought, that it would be 'My Camera Never Lies'

                                        Joan Jett, Kim Wilde, Stevie Nicks are very famous names, but I don't know these tracks.

                                        I was sure, that this is original song :
                                        Hey Mickey (Girl version from movie 'Bring It On')
                                        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqk82P65Wm8
                                        Heidi Range - Change Your Wicked Ways
                                        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4XpC8BEE1I
                                        Heidi Range, you are my angel and I love you.

                                          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 it

                                          Great song and Belinda Carlisle is so cute there

                                          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 them

                                          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 out

                                          The first version of that song I ever heard was by some girl named Lolly lol.
