Born In The 80s Part III : Around The World in 80s Plays

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

So then, here’s the reveal – here’s what I’ve been working on over the past months and now has been officially launched by none other than Richard Branson himself in New York.

VTravelled – Dreamt up by Virgin Atlantic

In true style, it’s time to commemorate the launch in the only way Shinypixel knows how… You guessed it; a bumper holiday pack of 80s toss!

Appropriately, our theme is travelling the globe…

Red Box – For America

You could also have had Kim Wilde, or Bruce Springsteen, of course.  Lots more 80s after the jump! (more…)

Born in the 80s, Pt. 2 : Here Comes The Sun…

Wednesday, May 27th, 2009

After my first Born In The 80s list, Neil sent over a Balearic video which inspired me to kick back and remember a few summery tunes from the 80s.  (Well, ish.  I’ve lost his original link, y’see, so you’ll have to put up with my poptastic selections until he reminds me.)

Close your eyes and imagine yourself back in the world of Black Lace, giant sombreros, pina coladas and Duty Free

Sueno Latino – Sueno Latino

The Blow Monkeys, Amazulu and a glut of 80s holiday party tunes in order of descending quality after the jump…


Born in the 80s, Pt. 1

Thursday, May 14th, 2009

After spending more time than is healthy listening to .977 and Radio Nigel, I thought I’d share some of my intimate knowledge of the 80s best/worst pop productions.  So whack on those rose-tinted spectacles and neon pop-socks and head back with me to the land time should have forgot…

Martika – Toy Soldiers

(Peter Schilling, Hazell Dean and more after the jump!) (more…)
