A Little Night Music…

By ATWadmin On November 4th, 2006

For some unknown reason, David’s juke-box posts have been hit by some sort of technical hitch.  I’m sure he’ll sort it out later. In the meantime, here’s a hit song from the summer of 1981 which I have always liked. Sweet and smooth, with an understated air of romance, mystery and longing.

    Your not a child of the 80’s by any chance? lol

    If so we need some clips from the Transformers, He-Man, The Thundercats et al

    Not a great tune (it’s decent though) but at least the lady can sing without a computer editing it all. Unlike most of the garbage you get these days.

  2. Strangely I have never heard of any of those bands you mentioned!?

  3. I always loved this one. One of my mother’s nicknames during the war was "Bette" because she looked so like La Davis. The likeness was very striking, although my mother didn’t use that much eye make up

  4. She must have been very beautiful, Aileen!

    That’s sweet of you. I have to be honest and say that I never thought that Bette Davis was the most beautiful of the Hollywood stars as I think I remember pointing out to her with a considerable want of tact as a child. My mother did have beautiful hair and an amazing complexion. We have a lovely photograph of her in her RAF uniform and it’s a very angelic version of Bette Davis. You don’t get the benefit of the hair but the complexion is flawless.

    I guess you’re being sarcastic. I off course mean the cartoons.

  7. A classic early 80s track which has dated well. Sadly the same can’t be said for the video, an example of the over-literal visual — the excruiating face-slapping in time to the syncopated drum beats.
    Another memorable example was the early publicity shots of Dexy’s Midnight Runners — pictured on a race track at er midnight.
    You-Tube has allowed us to relive all those early 80s videos which linger fondly in the memory (try David Bowie’s ‘Ashes To Ashes’ as a taster), though the grim reality is that most of them look either hopelessly dated or cringingly embarressing.
    Rather amusingly the record companies are throwing their toys out of the pram at all this free nostalgia infringing their copyrights. As if we’d actually pay money for it. Would someone please show the dinosaurs the door. Thank you.
