A smash hit

Depeche Mode – Stripped

“Stripped” marked a real turnaround in Depeche Mode’s career. 30 years ago, March 1986, Depeche Mode released Black Celebration, their fifth album. One and a half year had passed since their last studio album. During this period, fans had enjoyed their many compilations. In Europe,

Was it cold war…

…or was it just Rocky Balboa versus Ivan Drago? Nobody ever solved it!

Fast forward or rewind?

Sigue Sigue Sputnik – Love missile F1-11

Where are we going, when a 90s song (or even a millenial song) is released in February 1986? Are we playing fast forward or rewinding? Fast fast forward! A great marketing operation: english group with a russian-like name, accents to Japanese videogames,

Mondays

Bangles – Manic Monday

Manic Monday, after all, is a story of every week. Mondays in January and February turn often into definitely sad days. A couple of years ago a study of some english engineers confirmed that this sensation was indeed reality. Just like today… but daylights are getting longer and spring is coming,

The woman with bad luck!

Dear dinosaurs, in the latest days we heard about the death of a woman, aged 57, who was unbelievable in her life story, both funny and very tragic. She was Vanity, or Vanity 6, the first of the viragos fooled by Prince in his erotic-musical delirium. The genius of Minneapolis was really inspired by glamourous,

A wonderful third last

Really the last classified songs in Sanremo 1986 deserved so much more: Stadio, Zucchero with his sad song, but also the third last classified song really made us shiver!!! Also for Rossana’s 80s outfit!! Rossana was and is really a fantastic singer!

From Rome to Sanremo

We just said that 1986 wasn’t an historic edition of Sanremo overall, but there were surely some very beautiful songs. After Ramazzotti and Stadio, there was this great young singer with this fantastic iconic song. A kind of instagram from Rome, but 30 years ago!

Scende piano la notte sui ricordi di Roma
c’è una donna che parte e un uomo che corre
forse vuole fermarla

And the last will be the first

the magic of Sanremo is that, of course, the winner always finds great success, but very often also the last classified song turns out to be a very beautiful evergreen. It happened in 1984 with Stadio, and it happened again in 1986 with… Stadio. But this song is fantastic, an elegy.
