Time for revival

Los Lobos – La Bamba

I think that “La Bamba” is really one of the most famous soundtracks of the world. Actually in 1987 it had already happened, to recall a song of thirty years before. In fact, in January the great success of Reet Petite by Jackie Wilson, originally released in 1957,

Prince’s friend

Jill Jones – Mia bocca

“Mia Bocca” is another Prince’s song. And Jill Jones is another Prince’s friend. The Minneapolis Genius, rest in peace, had a thing for young singer, black hair, and better with a letter or a number for second name, eager to be discovered by him.

Trademark

a-Ha – The living daylights

It’s James Bond’s, Roger Moore and, since 1987, Timothy Dalton. And actually for a pop artist or group it was definitely an achievement, to be called to compose the title track for new 007 movies. So, for “The living daylights” it was a-Ha,

The Queen of Summer

Sabrina – Boys (Summertime Love)

Maybe unknown, yet beloved

Crowded House – Don’t dream it’s over

“Dont dream its over” is a song that many many people appreciated! Actually, even 30 years ago, the Crowded House had probably less success than they deserved. And this happened as soon as they released their song! But later, the great hit by the guys from Oceania was serially covered by great artists.

The wish of the genius

Terence Trent D’Arby – Wishing well

A wishing well – who would not find one? When you are a genius, strange things happen. It happens that inspiration comes in moments when you’re out of your mind, or sleeping, and somebody appears in your dreams. I don’t really know how it works,
