Good stuff! Mick Jones! :)

Listened to this one a lot - Paul King's big solo hit before he became a VJ on MTV



Before his solo career, he was in the Reluctant Stereotypes, they did some nice ska & reggae tunes



For some reason that song made me think of the theme tune to Bergerac

Love and Pride was a great hit.

However, I now only have the Bergerac theme in my head. That's today's earworm sorted then.

Just caught up with this thread, wow... so many memories.

I haven't heard that Colonel Abrams track for ages! Nice one.

I like this one by XTC:

We haven't had any Bowie yet, so here we go!

Only just into the 80's though this one...

Anyone remember this one by Red Box?

Seems to stick with me for some reason.

Nice!

The sign language made me think of this one, great song, great video:



The characters in the video make me think of sci-fi/fantasy comics by Mœbius, and the French animated TV series "Les mondes Engloutis"


Bowie! Had this tune on tape and listened to it a lot in the '80s:

Bugger, Colonel Abrams has died :/

Heard on the radio this morning that he had fallen on bad times, ended up homeless etc.

What a shame :(

I'd forgotten how much I loved this song and only recently rediscovered it.
