Tubes From The 80s…

Frankly I still have no energy left to write a new article on this blog, but I know that I have to produce something on this blog or else it will become harder and harder for me to return to the blogosphere though I am aware that in due course there is a time for me to automatically return to the sphere even on the lowest energy level. In this article I would only like to write provide something worthless and it is probably ehm… so unlike me! But it is temporary, at the appropriate time I will return with more serious articles.

So, today I would like to turn back the clock to the 1980s and you will see what tunes I loved to hear when I was 20s. Perhaps for those who were born before 1970s share the same tunes with me though I believe there are some who will turn a deaf ear to the sounds of the tubes I am about to bring on:

To fully enjoy the tubes, make sure you are on the best quality broadband… :mrgreen:

1. Remember The Manhattan Transfer?? The U.S. vocal music group has always been   amazing me since I was introduced to their tunes. “Gloria” is an a capella and the Alan Paul’s falsetto vocal is awesome!

2. Say you love me. That’s the expression you want to hear from someone you love.  But if you can’t get it from him or her at least you can enjoy a piece of Patti Austin’s great lilting vocal. It’s a pity that I failed to find the original clip online… 😦

3. This is another great falsetto. The Scot Jimmy Somerville teamed up with The Englishman Richard Coles to form ‘The Communards” in 1986. Despite an openly gay, The Glaswegian’s falsetto vocal has always been astounding me!

4. Are you falling in love? You always want to stay close to her or him? There is nothing else that can take the blues away but being near the one you love? This piece of Madness depicts the feeling of such love in the maddest scene! Here is “It Must Be Love”:
