Lou Reed inspired lots of other bands. Who do you think made the coolest Lou Reed cover? U2, Duran Duran or someone else?
Let’s Dance, it’s 30 years since David Bowie’s album called Let’s Dance was released. I like the even older stuff from David Bowie better, but this is Bowie’s best-selling album. The title-track was number 1 in lots of countries:
Another great track was China Girl. This is a song that I have played myself on both electronic keyboard and guitar.
This was Madness’ fourth album. For Madness, this was their most successful album. Personally I like the first three albums better, but I think there were some great tracks on The Rise & Fall as well. Their most known song is Our House.
Another good one from this album that you might remember is Tomorrow Is Just Another Day.
Lots of other good stuff was also released in 1982. It was a good year!
This album was a commercial success. Simple Minds moved away from the cool industrial style used in the previous album (Sons and Fascination) that I love. Instead, this album might be easier to listen to and that might have been one reason why this album was more successful. There are lots of good tracks to listen to. Here are two that you might remember. Promised You A Miracle and Glittering Prize.
Lots of other really good music was also released in 1982. Have a look at the list at Wikipedia that includes a few other albums in my collection
