Show 223

Pony St by Elvis Costello.  This is from his 1994 album, Brutal Youth, which I just got last week and will be sampling regularly to see if we like it.

Beautiful Noise by Neil Diamond. Request.

Room in Your Heart by Living in a Box. 1989 single from their second and final album, Gatecrashing. British band from the late 1980s. They were composed by singer Richard Darbyshire, drummer Anthony (Titch) Critchlow and keyboard player Marcus Vere.

The Only Way is Up by Yazz. 1988 number 1 single from their album, Wanted.

Buffalo Stance by Neneh Cherry. Request.

Shout to the Top by Style Council. Request.

I am Free by Mariah Carey.  Request.

Baby It’s You by Promises.  Request

Come Go With Me by The Pockets. 1977 hit from this Baltimore, Maryland R&B group.  It was sort of the title track from their first album, Come Go with Us, also from 1977.

Where is My Man by Eartha Kitt. Single from 1983 and her 1984 album I Love Men. The song was co-written by comedy writer Bruce Vilanch!

Main Man by Cher. Request.

Aussies 1987

*Beds are Burning by Midnight Oil. From Diesel & Dust, their 6th album.

*Money God by Big Pig. Track on their first album, Bonk, from 1987…though Wikipedia falsely lists it as from 1988.

*The Traveller by The Moffs. 1987 single released only on 7” vinyl.

*Suddenly by Angry Anderson.  Gary Stephen Anderson and I share a birthday…who knew?!!  He’s also an actor and was in Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, which I didn’t know either. This was his solo single debut…1987 of course.

*Crazy by Icehouse.  Iva Davies is the one mainstay of the band, which changed its name from Flowers in 1981…the new name came from the flat Davies shared with others…though it can’t have been THAT cold in Sydney!

Alice by Mylene Farmer.  Request.  Ooops, accidentally pressed this button before finishing 6-pack…

*Witch Queen by Chantoozies. Band featured four female singers: Eve von Bibra, Angie La Bozzetta, Ally Fowler and Tottie Goldsmith; and four male musicians: Brett Goldsmith, Scott Griffiths, Frank McKoy and David Reyne. This is their debut single from 1987, also a track on their debut self-titled album from 1988.

Holiday by Madonna.  Request.

Nights over Egypt by The Jones Girls. 1982 single from their 1981 album, Get As Much Love as You Can, their third. It wasn’t a hit back then but has become a cult classic and gets far more airplay than their actual hits. They were an R&B trio of sisters – Brenda, Valorie and Shirley Jones (no, not Mrs Partridge) – from Detroit, Michigan.

The Sun Always Shines on TV by A-Ha. The third single from the band’s debut album, Hunting High and Low, 1985. Generally not as successful as Take On Me, except in the UK and Ireland, where it did better.
