In 1985, Pete Townshend released a novel on record, that is: the album was subtitled a novel, making the album a concept album. The song was made to be uptempo. Pete Townshend played some parts he had in his mind on a keyboard, remarking to someone in the studio that he wanted these parts played several times. With this done, and the other instruments played, everything was overdubbed. When it was done, it was released as a single, reaching number 26 in the US, and only number 89 in the UK… Enjoy

Song of the day: Eric Clapton- Forever Man

In 1985, the album Behind the Sun from Eric Clapton was released. The marriage of Eric Clapton was not too good at the time of the album, so most of the songs had a sombre tone. The record compagny wanted some more ‘happy’ songs, with a faster tempo, so Jerry Williams wrote Forever Man, which says the love will last forever. The marriage of Clapton ended in 1988. The song ended on 26 in the US. The music video was directed by Godley & Creme. Enjoy

Song of the day: Rozalla- Everybody’s Free

Last week I was on a sort of carboot sale and I came across this song. I know it’s a real good song, a dance/club classic,  and therefore it is uptempo. Maybe uptempo doesn’t necessarily mean summer, but this can be late summer (september, with a bit of luck the summer is still there…)

And for the ones who want to know: I left the single where it was, since I bought lots of other things, so I ran a bit out of money…

Enjoy and be free:
