TOTP 1988 - The Only Way Is Up or Don't Worry, Be Crappy?

1988.The year dance music finally became a thing.

But it was 1988 so people weren't yet using the term "a thing" to describe things becoming a thing.

Also Bros. Little did we know people would ironically like them 30 years later...

Set the TB303 to stun and house party all night long to ... er ... Tiffany, Enya and Glen Madeiros.

Mmm. Nice new thread smell..

I know it makes me a heretic in these parts, but this Kate Bush thing is fucking torture (LadyD''s enjoying it, though).

BURN THE HERETIC!

The Happy Monday's...

And the Madchester Thing.

I never thought I'd say it but I agree with Tommy

I'm not as enamoured of the recent Bush albums as the crits are. They aren't exactly loaded with catchy tunes.

TT Darby looking like he's eaten all the pies.

Houmous and couscous pies probably but pies nonetheless.

Yes, kids - the contents of the bottle bin were sartorial elegance.

It's hard to fathom this Kylie, who seems to be made up almost entirely of teeth, turning into, indisputably, a flat-out sex symbol.

In what alternative universe were Tranvision Vamp of any consequence?

MorrisMitchener - 07 Jun 2019 21:21:20 (#12 of 175)

They were...just there, really, weren't they?

Billy Idol as an attractive woman.

Aswad getting the hit but losing all their fans by singing a Diane Warren song. Oh dear...

CaptainBlack - 07 Jun 2019 21:25:56 (#14 of 175)

I wonder if they still get Double Deckers fans.

CaptainBlack - 07 Jun 2019 21:27:18 (#15 of 175)

Inner City - now this was MY '88.

MorrisMitchener - 07 Jun 2019 21:27:20 (#16 of 175)

Ah, The Second Summer of Love - such memories!

Such memories of having nothing at all to do with it and being a complete recluse at the time. Damn!

MorrisMitchener - 07 Jun 2019 21:29:48 (#17 of 175)

I discovered ecstacy later on.

To be perfectly honest with you a 6 hour mix of The Birdie Song by The Tweets would probably sound good on (good) E.

CaptainBlack - 07 Jun 2019 21:30:28 (#18 of 175)

I must have been the only one at the Hacienda every week that never (knowingly) did an E.

MorrisMitchener - 07 Jun 2019 21:32:55 (#19 of 175)

It was something of Paul on the Road to Damascus moment when I encountered house music on E. I think I was nodding a great deal and going "Ah! NOW I get it!"

MorrisMitchener - 07 Jun 2019 21:36:27 (#20 of 175)

The Mish! I do like Tower of Strength, great big Kashmir rip-off though it obviously is.
