In 1984, Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (OMD) released their new album Junk Culture. The first single of the album was this song, which combines an uptempo rhythm with some more ‘negative’ lyrics. It was recorded in the last week of recording, with a steel drum and the manager of the group playing bass and piano. In the Netherlands, in the Wisseloord Studio’s, the song was mixed. The song made it to number 5 in the UK and the Netherlands. Enjoy

Song of the day: Andrew Gold- Never Let Her Slip Away


A great song from the seventies today. And what a song it is! It made it to a good number 5 on the UK singles chart, just like the cover by Undercover (who turned it into a dance track). Recalling from the things I’ve said before, you could think that I discovered this song later. That’s not true, since I found out today that a dance track existed. Well, moving on to some background information. I was surprised to find out who did the backing vocals. Although they are officially unknown, it’s said that Freddie Mercury did them! Enjoy

Summer Song of the Day #5: Ryan Paris- Dolce Vita


Simplicity makes things more beautiful. In most cases this is true, more is less…
And in this song it is used very well. No difficult texts, let the music do its part. The result is a very good song with an easy melody which sticks to mind, and brings up the summer!
I must say that the song sticked to mind when I was in Rome last week. I was sitting by the Trevi Fountain, an ice cream in my hand, and this song playing in my mind… lovely!
