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.
Cat people, a.k.a. Putting Out Fire is another cool track and was the title song of the 1982 film Cat People with Nastassja Kinski.
Funny how it seems. The album True with Spandau Ballet is 30 years today.
I know this much is true, since I have checked it at wikipedia. It’s a Gold mine of information.
Today it’s 30 years since another very good album was released, War by U2.
There are a few good tracks on it that I think everyone remembers. First, Two Hearts Beat As One:
It is today 30 years since the album The Rise & Fall by Madness was released.
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!
It is today 30 years since the album New Gold Dream (81–82–83–84) by Simple Minds was released.
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
It’s a new religion. We are celebrating Duranmas Duranmas today, since it’s 30 years since the album Rio was released.
Rio - Duran Duran - 1982
The idea to celebrate Duranmas Duranmas came from the ”I Waste The Buddha With My Crossbow” blog.
The album Rio had lots of very good tracks. You might also remember ”Hungry Like the Wolf” and “New Religion“. This is “Rio” from Youtube:
