Ray Charles 'Love Has a Mind of Its Own' [Dec. 10th, 2009|11:37 pm]
The Eighties -- 80s Music

Am trying to find the Ray Charles song 'Love Has a Mind of Its Own', which was featured in the movie 'Another Stakeout' with Emilio Estevez and Richard Dreyfus. If anyone has the OST to that movie or the Ray Charles upload, I'd be forever grateful!! :)

A Couple More Gems [Sep. 14th, 2008|11:09 pm]

Here are a couple more gems. The first one is from an all girl ska band from the early 80s called, The Bodysnatchers and the other is a spin off group from The Bodysnatchers called, The Belle Stars.

Ruder Than You - The Bodysnatchers

I've been a member of this place for a while, but I was on dial-up until a month ago. The first song is a request and the second one is one of my favorites from the 80s.
I love New Wave, Goth, and Dance of the 80s. I love Talk Talk, Ultravox, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Damned, Kate Bush and Thomas Dolby to name a few.

Does anyone have "The Promise" by When In Rome?

In exchange, here are three random 80s songs:
- Thomas Dolby - "Europa And The Pirate Twins"
- Felt - "Sunlight Bathed The Golden Glow"
- R.E.M. - "Gardening At Night"

Help identify a song [Jun. 30th, 2008|11:34 pm]
The Eighties -- 80s Music

I apologize if this is inappropriate, especially for a newbie, but I seek help identifying what I strongly believe to be an 80s song that I wish to know the name of.

Unfortunately, this is proving excessively difficult for me, because I do not know the artist or the title. Nor do I recall any specific lyrics.

What I DO have, though, is a four-second clip taken from a video that has this song playing in the background. It can be played below:

Does anyone know the name and artist of this song?

I am doing this *ONLY* because I beleive the album is out of print and can only be had by searching sites where individuals can sell the personal copies such as Amazon and Ebay. If it is still commercially available, please let me know and I will immediately delete it.

This came out in 1989, so I think it'll be OK here

Scans of the CD case back cover, booklett and CD itself at 200dpi, CD's ripped at 128.

"The Iron Man: A Musical, released in 1989, is an adaptation of Ted Hughes' story The Iron Man, produced and largely composed and performed by Pete Townshend of The Who. It also stars Roger Daltrey, Deborah Conway, John Lee Hooker, and Nina Simone. The three then-surviving members of The Who (Daltrey, John Entwistle, and Townshend) performed as a group in two songs, "Dig" and "Fire", although the latter was not penned by Townshend"

More at the Wikipedia article

Pete Townshend is a friend of Ted Hughes and so unlike the Disney film The Iron Giant, Pete's version is much more faithful to the origional story

My favorite part is "I Eat Heavy Metal" where the Iron Man has broken out of the hole he was buried in and unintentionally shows how badass he is by *eating* the heavy military artillery deployed to stop him

Van Halen at Madison Square Garden [May. 28th, 2008|02:44 pm]
The Eighties -- 80s Music

Hey everybody!

The folks over at AlmacksDanceHall.com went to the Van Halen show
on May 23rd at Madison Square Garden. There is a hilarious review
of it up on the site. Here's a little taste of it:

"For me, the original Van Halen is one of few bands that actually have
both amazing showmanship AND solid musicianship to back it up. David
Lee Roth is the ultimate entertainer and has an immeasurable amount of
charisma and energy, even now. He emerged on stage wearing a circus
ringmaster jacket and for a fleeting moment I thought I was accidentally
at the comeback performance of Ziegfried and Roy. But Diamond Dave was at
his best– beaming personality, physically fit, and acting like a surprisingly
appropriate version of himself from days ago. He channeled his old persona,
but thankfully he recognized no one wanted to see a 50 year old humping an
inflated microphone in a spandex number. Me especially. His vocals and moves
are completely intact, and he delivered all the sass and sleaze we have come
to associate with his over the top performances. A high point for me was
when Roth referred to having sex as “getting leg.” Guess what? I’m officially
stealing that phrase and using it from this point forward."

Read the rest of it here!

Have a great day!

The look for both was inspired by the look that hair metal band Stryper had in the 80's
