I was sat watching OMD’s Greatest Hits DVD and started to think, what is the finest run of singles by any artist (80s only). One of my favourite runs started in 79 (Roxy Music: Dance Away, Angel Eyes, Over You, Oh Yeah) so sadly I’ve not included it. I decided the run had to also epitomise the group/artist. Most of all they had to mean something to me (so as good as they were no Madonna, Michael Jackson).
OMD: Messages, Enola Gay, Souvenir, Joan Of Arc, Maid Of Orleans
Thompson Twins: Hold Me Now, Doctor Doctor, You Take Me Up
Soft Cell: Say Hello Wave Goodbye, Torch, What
Madness: Our House, Tomorrow’s Just Another Day, Wings Of A Dove, The Sun And The Rain, Michael Caine, One Better Day, Yesterday’s Men
Marillion: Kayleigh, Lavender, Heart Of Lothian, Incommunicado, Sugar Mice
Ultravox: One Small Day, Dancing With Tears In My Eyes, Lament, Love’s Great Adventure
Another amazing concert of more than 3 hours again by Bruce last night in Manchester. When I have time I will post a bit more on this as well as some photos and maybe a couple of videos. What happened to disc 2 of the River though?
Had my first ever request played on a national radio station yesterday. Thanks to @MatthewJRudd on @Absolute80s for playing the marvelous Tantalise by Jimmy the Hoover. And just to prove it listen here…
