New music from an old favorite….The Go-Go’s! Here at Pop-A-Looza HQ, we’re loving the band’s new single. We also noticed that this video was posted by Universal Music Group, which means, the ladies have some sort of record deal in place. Will there be a new album? We think so!!
The Power Of Love, by Huey Lewis and The News, from their Lp, Fore! and The Back To The Future Soundtrack. Released in June of 1985.
Bill Loyd’s latest single is a swell piece of pop called The Girls Of Sylvan Park, from his latest full-length release, Don’t Kill The Messenger.
Post new wave, pre grunge, this first-rate pop song by Katrina and The Waves was lost in the shuffle. From their 1989 Lp, Break Of Hearts, this single should’ve been huge, along with its counterpart, Rock N’ Roll Girl. It rose to the #16 position in the United States, but struggled elsewhere.
The 24th video to air on the first day of MTV was Too Late, by Shoes, from their 1979 Lp, Present Tense.
Song #22 to air on the first day of MTV programming was In The Air Tonight, By Phil Collins. It was released as a single from his Face Value Lp, on January 5th, 1981. Face Value was also Collins’s first solo venture apart from his regular band, Genesis. According to urban legend, the song is about a real-life drowning that Collins witnessed, and an onlooker who failed to help the drowning victim. Not so, says Collins, who cites the divorce he was going through when he wrote it, as the song’s actual inspiration.
The Romantics…a one-hit wonder, you say? Nay, nay, we say! This track, from their Nemperor Lp, In Heat, cracked the top 40 in 1983. Several tracks from that long-player became radio staples; Rock You Up, Talking In Your Sleep and Shake A Tail Feather.
