Treasure (album) by Cocteau Twins
Nope. This is the way to wind down a night of 1984 goodness.
Enjoy. And good night.
Madonna - Like A Virgin
This could truly be the cap on the top of this night…
Released in November 1984.
Lloyd Cold & The Commotions - Rattlesnakes
“…she looks like Eva Marie Saint in On the Waterfront…”
Gorgeous stuff. And the Amos cover is gorgeous, too.
Plus! ‘Are You Ready To Be Heartbroken?’ Yay!
Released in October 1984.
Sheena Easton - Strut
You know, ‘Morning Train (9 to 5)’ does not prepare one for the dirtiness of Sheena Easton’s later songs…
However, I do enjoy this song for all the wrong reasons.
Shall we increase the innuendo?
Bronski Beat - Smalltown Boy
Released in December 1984.
Wham! - Everything She Wants
BEST. SONG. EVER. AND EVER AMEN.
And as of now, I think 1984 is winning as the coolest year for music.
Talking Heads - Life During Wartime (live)
Filmed in ‘83; released as in album in ‘84.
Hall & Oates - Method Of Modern Love
“…in the moonlight, under starlight…”
Secretly my favorite. Now you know.
ps - this one too.
U2 - The Unforgettable Fire
Most people ‘forget’ this track because of the lovely shadow of ‘Pride (In the Name of Love). And yes, that is a great song too… but ‘The Unforgettable Fire’ just has something about it that I adore. It kind of wraps you up & subtly takes you over…
Right? I bet you get that feeling, too.
Chaka Khan - I Feel For You
This song, along with a few others, really embodies every good moment from my childhood. Long summer days with the boom-box volume turned up high & riding my bike everywhere…
