    Hey potojr. Wassup?

    Glad you liked it and glad you posted. If only any of the other 50+ persons who check this thread every week would post something lol

    "Dare Me" and "Trapped" are kinda equal to me and far above anything else on the R&B list. It could have easily been "Dare Me" on another day depending on my mood. Love them both

    "Oh Sheila" is fun but too Prince rip-off for it's own good. Still a good tune though. I love Five Star, don't you? (although I do see an "inspired by Jackson 5"-thing going on)

    I didn't know Paul was a VJ (I didn't have MTV in the early 90s). He doesn't look very photogenic though. "Love And Pride" is sooooo 80s and soooo good

    I AM A MAAAJOR BILLY IDOL FAN (although The Smiths song is definitely the better one from the two) and...

    As for godess Hazell what can I say?
    Moo-soo-too-younger-HEY-HEY
    Moo-sala-kooloo-HOH
    (I had to look this up lol)

    1985

    R&B - I'd have put Dare Me #1, Abrams is a tad overplayed, but still good. The other eight I either don't know (most) or am not very fond (DC Lee, Five Starr, Oh Sheila).

    New Wave / Pop / Rock - weird choice for #1!!! Good song, though, but I prefer the songs off The Raw And The Cooked more. All the others are good, Waterboys being my favourite by a country mile.

    Obscure album - I NH the whole album, but remember the main singles off it and I liked them both. Also, do you recall the early 90s MTV Europe' Greatest Hits show? Paul was the VJ.

    Legendary artists - nothing to argue here. Big wooo for including that underrated Phil song, one of my favs from him.

    Classic tunes - all classic indeed! Huge wooo for the top 2.

    Hi-NRG - wow, we have a lot in common as far as 80s taste goes! Really happy to see the excellent and massively underrated They Say It' Gonna Rain!! Fancy is superb, too, his best by miles IMO.

    Will look at the earlier years soon!

    I was going to say hello 2 U 2 in greek, but I guess UKmix doesn't recognize cyrillic alphabet.
    I hope she makes it to the list, "Looking For A New Love" is epic, although I prefer "Real Love".

    Modern Talking is nothing compared to my first cassette purchase, it was an album by our Eurovision representative in 1999., Doris Dragovic. I guess everyone remembers "Marija Magdalena", but I prefered this one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0qkqGDQTFc, lol. Embarrassing.

    Zdravo, videokid. Glad you like it. Well, I don't know about Jody, we'll see in January/February I guess. As for Modern Talking, it's a bit embarassing but that was the first record in any format I ever bought (it was on cassette lol)

    If I had to choose a song that would represent the sound of the 80's, I'd probably choose that Moderning Talking song.

    "Maniac" is also great.

    And I hope Jody's coming in 1987. since you've included Shalamar in your list, lol.

    I have only one addiction in my life:
    It is my love to Heidi Range.
    I really try to find something intresting for FSC. I don't want to steal countries of another participants. Not sure, but today best choice for me is parts of United Kingdom (Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland), maybe I try to push Charlotte Church's last single or album tracks from H & Claire in game.

    About Forum Song Contest.
    1. If I join in this game, that I would be worst judge in history of FSC, because anybody pretty pop blonde lady get my very high points.
    2. Choose song for me is impossible thing. Rules about UK top 40 and especially about popular artist exclude 95% of my favourite music. Next 5 % is Eurovision and cover versions, which also illegal.

    Simples: Charlotte Church had flop with her last album and singles, but she had local UK success with single 'Crazy Chick' and album 'Tissues And Issues' in 2005. Both realises were #2.
    Similar situation with Little Boots, Amy Macdonald.

    Oh cool. Hopefully it's some kind of permanent update so you can join us in Forum Song Contest, commenting songs you didn't know before, discovering new artists etc etc. Although it can get pretty addictive, I am afraid lol

    By the way, if you like Bucks Fizz and Steps, you should check out Dollar, they are very similar to them.
    I listened your link on Dollar's song. Not bad. My first association was Roxette.
