“La isla bonita” carries me instantly to the Spring of 1987. In 1987 spring came forward in giant steps. The longer daylight helped starting the season of spring and summer parties.

I remember one of them, in a kind of manor at the edge of the town.

From denims to covers

Nick Kamen – Loving you is sweeter than ever

“Loving you is sweeter than ever” brought Nick Kame from jeans to covers. Covers like the songs, I mean.

What was really needed?

Billy Idol – Don’t need a gun

You don’t need a gun to have success. Surely not, but I think that such things like having a great album like “Whiplash smile”, having plenty of personality and talent (still today), and performing with great artists like Stevie Stevens, well, this might definitely help,

Not always all at once

“All at once” had a strange road to success. Even the greatest stars there may face moments when a song reaches success with a delay. It may depend on release plans, but also on other reasons, and maybe on the destiny too. The unforgettable Whitney released this song in 1985.

An iconic album

U2 – With or without you

“With or without you” was released today, 30 years ago. March 9, 1987. One of the albums that marked and influenced not only the 80s, but all the history of pop music. The magazine Rolling Stone says it’s the 27th-best album of all times,

Highest respect

Mel and Kim – Respectable

“Respectable” is the right title for two artists that really deserve respect. Don’t call them “meteors”. It happened frequently, in the 80s: a song, a success. Months later, another song, an even bigger success. An album.
