Forgotten 80s

Inspired by the Sunday evening Absolute 80s radio show presented by Matthew Rudd, I thought it was high time that I started my own ‘Forgotten 80s’ blog for friends, family and regular correspondents. Enjoy!

Paloma Faith: Only Love Can Hurt Like This

Beyond a shadow of a doubt, my song of the year to date. Just wonderful.

Toto – I’ll Be Over You

A beautiful and poignant song from Toto’s Fahrenheit album, featuring backing vocals from the sublime Michael McDonald

Great singer…

Shame about the band!

A pretty unique video performance which I came across this evening featuring Coldplay down under with a stunning performance by Mr John Farnham. What a song. What a voice.

Rochester Castle Concerts 2014

After an exceptionally crowd-pleasing Rochester Castle Concerts last year which included artists such as Go West, Tony Hadley and Status Quo, this year’s line-up of artists has finally been confirmed with the announcement today that Level 42, supported by Shakatak, will be kicking off the series of shows on Wednesday 16th July.

For those who have never yet had the opportunity to attend one of the Rochester Castle Concerts in Medway, I would strongly urge you to consider doing so this year. Whilst the UB40 concert is already a sell-out, tickets are now on general sale for Westlife’s Shane Filan, Level 42 (announced today), and Saturday night’s traditional classical spectacular The Proms. A warm welcome is guaranteed in one of the most spectacular and special concert venues in the whole of the UK.

L42_DVD-134This year’s line-up:

Weds 16th July – Level 42 with Shakatak

Thurs 17th July – Shane Filan with Jamie Johnson

Fri 18th July – UB40

Sat 19th July – Castle Proms

Sun 20th July – Under Siege

Cry Little Sister

For those of a certain age, this is, and always will be, THE movie and soundtrack of the late 80s. Enjoy!

Haim: The Wire

Great song, and video, from my band of the year so far. Enoy!

I Won’t Back Down!

In case there were any doubts.
