While listening to Triple M Sydney around 1987 I heard this synth sound that was like.. da da da daaa, WOW.. I like this but my little transistor radio didn't do it justice so I ran inside and beged my dad to put on his several thousand dollar stereo (his pride & joy) and I was in heaven.. What a song.
Even to this day when I hear "The Final Countdown " it takes me back to my little shed/bird avery/mancave on a hot summers day in 1987.. Magic.
EUROPE - THE FINAL COUNTDOWN

Sadly a mp3 download in not available for this song...BUT.. you can use a program called "Free youtube to MP3" = CLICK HERE and cut and copy the web page address into this program = web page address
Just make sure that the MP3 setting is in "Lame Insane Quality 320" so the song sounds a bit better. Also click on "Options" and go to tab "Output" and select desktop or music" otherwise its like hunting for a small fish in a big sea.
I have also included the video by band "FM Attack" - Yesterday which uses "Koo De Tah - Too Young for Promises" as a backing track... Magic sound... Cheers
KOO DE TAH - THINK OF ME (12")
FM ATTACK - YESTERDAY (Thanks to Maniac Synth for the video)
CLICK HERE to Download "Koo De Tah" and more from my Mixtape series........Enjoy

World in motion was originally going to be called "E for England" but due to the worries from the football association that E stood for the drug ecstasy, the band decided that World in Motion was a better choice.
This is an excellent song that sadly is not heard of anymore... Thank goodness for Youtube.
NEW ORDER - WORLD IN MOTION

The new single called "Suddenly Silently" and is now available on I-Tunes
Its Pseudo Echo as we love them with Brian Canham's voice as smooth as silk while the synths & guitars do the song justice (and a return of the electric drums)
So.. what do I think, Being a huge fan of "Pseudo Echo" fan, I love it, sounds so much like Autumnal Park... which in my opinion, one of the best albums of the 80s
Its great to hear the pseud's back again..
CLICK HERE to hear / download "Suddenly Silently"
PSEUDO ECHO LIVE 2012
STAY UP TO DATE
Side B is called "Fighting The Tide"
MASSIVE "Thanks" to TheNouveauxdecadence for the use of their video, well done guys.

This single came out around 1984 and I must say, it was a very catchy tune, so much so..I went and brought the 12" single on vinyl when it was released.
This song made it to no 55 on the U.S music charts.
So in a nutshell that's the royal family...kind of.
KING - LOVE AND PRIDE
PRINCESS - SAY I'M YOU NUMBER ONE
PRINCE - CONTROVERSY
QUEEN - THE INVISIBLE MAN
A musical royal family... Neat

Its a blend of haunting but yet raucous, due to substance abuse and laryngitis.
I think it gives her an edge otherwise it would sound just like every other ballad, its a unique gift.
Marianne also did a slather of movies in the 60s/ 70s including "The Girl on the Motorcycle" a personal favorite of mine, not the fact that she is naked under her leather outfit but its freedom at its best ( getting away from it all) while tripping on LSD... Sadly she does a tango with a truck and I don't think she came off too good in the end.
I love this song, so smooth, dreamy but raw at the same time.
A stunning song from a multi-talented artist.
MARIANNE FAITHFULL - THE BALLAD OF LUCY JORDAN
THE GIRL ON A MOTORCYCLE (movie clip)
