Francois Villon

Francois Villon

Max Hansen – Einmal Möcht Ich Keine Sorgen Haben

Francois Villon (1431-1461) was an all around hellraiser, bon vivant and one of the most admired French poets. His often suggestive rhymes got the club treatment during the late 1980s, first by Culture Beat & Jo Van Nelson with Der Erdbeermund and immediately after by Lyric Expedition & Romy Haag with Susse Kirschen. Both are here and belong to the classic Berlin cabaret tradition, originally pioneered by acts like Marlene Dietrich and Max Hansen after WW1.

Broadway Symphony Orchestra

Broadway Symphony Orchestra – Whatever Lola Wants (Lola Gets)/America/Habanera

There is a time and a place for everything however tacky and kitschy, so here’s some horribly overblown interpretations of Broadway show tunes from 1982.

Dilemma

md-41186861718681618

Moderne – Dilemma (1981)

Not everything ending with “wave” as a musical genre has to be desperate and gloomy. It’s just a tad melancholic and chilly here, as expected.

Mike Batt – Echo Foxtrot

Mike Batt who wrote music and lyrics to Art Garfunkel’s international number one single “Bright Eyes” went disco in 1980. Did not sound half bad, either.

Yes, it’s a 1982 dance version of the bombastic Vangelis theme from the British film about men in who run on the beach in slow motion a lot.

Life Is Real Only Here

Life Is Real Only Here

Should you have a soft spot for pulse disco – and by your choice of reading & listening material we take our chances – the works of Wolfgang Bock and Andre Ceccarelli should prove to be interesting as both provide delicate yet authoritative soundscape designs. The opening track Cycles by Bock and the following Life Is Real Only Here by Ceccarelli are extremely sophisticated explorations of space, texture and structure, set to a gently throbbing and definitely danceable beat. I also added a couple of other relating cuts of equally peaceful/agitated palette and subject matter.
