In 1979, Godley & Creme released An Englishman In New York. It was a single from their album Freeze Frame, and was mostly a hit in the Netherlands and Belgium, where it peaked at number 4. Godley & Creme originally were members of 10CC, but decided to quit the band and move on together. The song was famous for its music video, and both have been directing music videos more than scoring hits. They directed videos for Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Duran Duran and many others. Enjoy

Song of the day: Kaoma- Lambada

Lambada

Songs with a dance with them always work out very well. Take for example The Ketchup Song of yesterday, the Macarena (who doesn’t know how to dance the macarena?), and the song of today. It was a big eighties summer hit which made the Lambada popular again. It was released in 1989, and in 1990 two movies were released, both based on the lambada.

The two kids playing in the music video both started a musical career after the success of Kaoma’s Lambada, but I don’t know if they ever have made hits…

Today the song by Kaoma is in the spotlights:
