Baltimora died of AIDS in the 90's... silently until a fan pointed him out in the Orbituary.
FR David penned several hits made famous by other artistes. One of such was "Music". Not many knew it was written by him.
The Bangles are not one-hit wonder. They have hits like "Maniac Monday", "Walking Down your Street", "A Hazy Shade Of Winter", "Eternal Flame", "In Your Room", "If She Knew What She Wants", etc... until vocal Susanna Hoffs left them.
Village People.. I always wonder how they became GAY icon...  lol.gif

And yes PP... Holly Johnson is Sero-Positive.. but he won't die yet. If you happen to have FGTH's 1st make of "Relax" video... it's set in a gay pub and it featured and old gay simulating an indecent act with banana and his mouth... yuk.gif ..

haha...if you look at the VP's costumes..you would know why they are gay icons...

Ah yes...the Relax video...that was really something huh? Welcome to the Pleasuredome was shocking as well...given its parade of sideshow freaks..

I always wondered what Holly Johnson meant by 'Relax..Don't do it...when you want to come'... no.gif

They openly said it was something about masturbation. And because of the gay theme in the video, it meant something even more....

So the song was BANNED in SG back in 1987 and early 90's. You can probably hear it on radio but on CD it is illegal.... Don't know what kind of rule is that.. The ban was lifted only in 1997(??).. which was about 10 years later.

they were actually here in Singapore in the millenium, when they had the millenium party at Sentosa. But it wasn't Holly J. fronting them..some other guy who sounded remarkably like him. Sadly, nobody knew who they were and the response to them was lukewarm.

The lyrics "Relax, dont do it, when you wanna cum....." and the garment banned it.


"Ah la la la li long long long long long, push it, push it some more" but they didnt ban it.

I did mention in one of my post.Got hooked on their debut album "Speak & Spell",almost every single song is solid!! good_very.gif
But, their subsequent releases sucks.
As for soft cell, the aqua man who wears make-up, only liked their "Tainted Love".

That guy's Marc Almond... front man of soft cell...errm.. no comments.
His best know hit happens to be "Tears Run Ring".. which ended with a funny trumpet solo... The extended version is very very good though

Talk about Ah qua.... Try compare him with PETE BURNS from Dead Or Alive.. The one who sang "You Spin Me Round (like a Record)".. totally "Queen".. Even single release they have he must dress in some womanly clothes.




he even went for surgery (Collagen Enhanced) to make his lips "more pouty"... Scary eh???



That's his style - "Tranny"
...And you won't believe this man has got a wife and kids.

Hotel California only listen to the front guitar portion for audiophile testing. When they start to sing, i skip liao.

80s also featured many vocalists ... pure solid voice also. Dionne Warwick, Cher, Tina Turner, Kenny Rogers, longgan lychee (Lionel Richie) and his onglai long (All Night Long).

Actually the world changed in the 80s. Thru music they conveyed the strongest message of today. And also the 1st telecast of Music in TV in very early 80s, MTV ver 1 lah. Everything politics era change.

I guess the sophisication of music videos started in the early eighties.They were available earlier, but it was the Michael Jackson's Beat It and Thriller era that sees a massive change in the way music videos are produced.

I vaguely remember.....
Michael Jackson's superbly choreographed dances
The Police's black and white shoot of "every breath you take"
Aha's charcoal sketch music video
David Bowie's "China girl" shot in the nude by the beach shiok.gif
Duran Duran's "Girls on film" with many nude models!! shiok.gif drool.gif

The King of Pop MJ surely got this title for a reason you just mentioned and it was the MTV of Thriller that started the whole chain reaction ...

And he made another superb change in the 90s with Black and White MTV.

MV is usually done with a very small budget with budding directors who like to strike out, if I'm not wrong Thriller tops the investment and a movie director was called in for this.

But in terms of sopfisication, the 80s have real funky music / dance movie like saturday night fever and fame propelled the music video to go big.

Yes that's true. It depends very much on the record company. So if one were to sign up with a small company (which is easier entry into the music scene), he will face low budget for video. Look at Kylie's "I Should Be So Lucky"... It was done on very tight budget. a-ha and Madonna on the other side signed up with big brothers like Warner Bros. Hence you can understanding why the video to a-ha's "Take On Me" (first video/singles) won so many awards (with the comic strip idea). And you'll never see low-budgetted Madonna's videos.

There were special cases too... For example Johnny Hates Jazz. They had 2 versions of the video to the songs "Shattered Dreams" and "I Don't Want To Be A Hero". At that time, Virgin Rec had tight budget for their MVs. After JHJ's record became multi-platinum (and $$ started rolling in), they re-did some of their videos.

To round up - It's all about $$.

Music and hi-fi goes hand in hand.When i was studying and had no money, I promised myself to own a set of hifi system when I started working, consisting of:

Nakamichi tuner and cassete deck
Lynn Sondek turntable
Marantz pre and power amplifiers
Infinity speakers
Jamo speaker stands
Monster cable speaker wires

Now that I am already working and can afford them, lost interest liao.All i have is a $499 JVC mini hi-fi cum VCD player. biggrin.gif

Go get their album "Brothers in Arms" (1985).
If you liked it then get "Love over Gold" (1983).

Or the live double album "Alchemy" (1984).

Their lead singer Mark Knopfler, IMO, is one the the best guitarist. The classical guitar in the track 'private investigations' and the electric guitar in the track 'Sultans of swing ( live version from Alchemy)' .................... good.gif

You guys obviously haven't heard nor seen (and I say this humbly) his version of American Pie, titled, The Saga Begins.

Using music from the song, he rewrote the lyrics to re-tell the entire story of Star Wars Ep 1: The Phantom Menace....and it was bloody good!

The chorus went like: My, my, this here Anakin guy, Maybe Vader later now he's just a small fry. He left his home, kissed his Mommy goodbye, saying 'Soon I'm gonna be a Je-di, soon I'm gonna be a Je-di'.

The video was fcuking funny; he was dressed up as Obi-Wan and he was playing the piano infront of an audience, which included Yoda!

You can only see the back view of Yoda but you cannot miss those ears.

You can catch the video here:
