Flashback Friday

Year 1986.

Another summer song would have been good, but I got to keep my Flashback Friday unpredictable. I love music , the ones that take you to a memory that could have been faded out. This is why I love music so much, it reminds you of the good, bad and the heartbreaking times. It can transform you to become a singer while you clean your home, a rocker while you wait for the bus or a bad-ass rapper walking down the street to corner store. It's all good feelings from a single song your listening.

Today's classic 80's song is a rendition from the original The Supreme's version, You Keep Me Hangin' On. Kim Wilde and her music produce brother hadn't heard much of the original song and re-create it to a pop/hi-NRG song which peaked in Australia and the U.S & No 3 in her native homeland U.K . I remember this too well, watching it on Video Hits.

Flashback Friday

Year 2000.

We are heading back to the dance floor 1999-2000 circa. When techno was becoming too hardcore and garage music was what most funksters danced to; at least I did in Sydney's Globe club while the Sydney Olympics were on.

Garage music is deep funky house, old school jungle and electro with R&B blended in together. No doubt you would have heard garage music still playing today in a modern bar/cafe or retail shop. The music faded out in the mid 2000 leaving funky tracks with a great tempo to dance, exercise or clean your house with today. I still do!

Which is why I chose a popular, commercial English garage and R&B band called Artful Dodger. They released a song called 'Please Don't Me On' which was on repeat in the hairdressing salon I worked at.
