The Unknown Beauty Of The 80's Vol. 100

Postby Rissan » Fri Apr 24, 2020 6:17 am

And so we come on the last April Friday of the year 2020 to Volume 100.
Never did I expect when I started this project way back in 2005, that I would get to number 100.
But well I reached the 100. I am not gonna predict how long I wish to continue, simply because I still like to search for Unknown Beauties and also I am a hugh fan of eighties New Wave, Synthpop etc. and prefer and appreciate to listen to non charting alternative music. Of which I always wonder why did such nice tunes not make it into the charts.

The tracks:

01 About 9 Times - There Is No… 3:54
02 Two Mind Crack - Upside Down 4:55
03 Telepathic - We Are Telepathique 4:05
04 Panic - Ticket To The Tropics (extended cub mix) 6:20
05 Ronny - If You Want Me To Stay 5:48
06 The Stage - I See Love 2:56
07 The Klones - Disco Rhythm 3:35
08 50/50 - Memories Linger (7" single) 3:30
09 The Time Dance - Picture 3:43
10 Frozen Ghost - Promises 3:52
11 Villa De Ville - Everything Counts 3:20
12 Future Daze - House On The Hill 2:45
13 Strange Advance -Hold On To The Nite 4:34
14 The Passions - Oh No It's You 4:28
15 West End - The Servant 3:20
16 Airstrip - One Satellite (slow motion mix) 6:50
17 Boys Don't Cry - Love Talk 4:39
18 Steve Kent - Twelfth House 4:17
19 Screen 3 - City Of Souls 2:53
