Kylie Minogue – “Wouldn’t Change a Thing / It’s No Secret”

Kylie Minogue – “Wouldn’t Change a Thing / It’s No Secret”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Long before Kylie Minogue hit American charts with such songs as “Can’t Get You Outta My Head”, she recorded this little single at the age of 21, and well… I thought she was like 14 on the cover. Anyway.  The A Side is the track “Wouldn’t Change A... Read More »

Traci Lords – “Fallen Angel”

Traci Lords – “Fallen Angel”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  I like Traci Lords as an actress, I’m sure she’s a very nice person too. But that album cover… why is she surrounded by anal beads?  So, the album opens with the “Perfecto Mix” and it starts off alright, nothing overly bassy or techno sounding, but hey,... Read More »

Adam and the Ants – “Stand & Deliver!”

Adam and the Ants – “Stand & Deliver!”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  This is the one Adam Ant song that got me into loving Adam Ant as much as I do, though I really don’t have as much Adam Ant in my collection as I’d like to – I do have every album digitally.  So, the A-Side opens with...

E.G. Daily – “Say It, Say It (Extended Version)”

E.G. Daily – “Say It, Say It (Extended Version)”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Elizabeth Daily to me will always be known for her songs “I’m Hot Tonight” and “Shake It Up” – and like, they’re great.  So, the A-Side is the extended mix, so I’m gonna listen. So, it goes in with that cheesy 80’s tambourines, then some piano and... Read More »

Time Zone feat. John Lydon & Afrika Bambaataa – “World Destruction”

Time Zone feat. John Lydon & Afrika Bambaataa – “World Destruction”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review: So, this is one of those early 80’s rap songs that was politically fueled, and who else can help fuel that fire? Britain’s finest firestarter of course, John Lydon (Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols) of course! Anyways, so the A-Side is the radio version of the... Read More »

Norman Nardini – “Love Dog” 

Norman Nardini – “Love Dog” The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: “I smell a hit!” Personal Review: Well, the song opens with a whole lot of dogs barking – and it’s definitely some Southern Rock here, it’s not that bad either. The lyrics aren’t the best, considering Norman is literally just singing “bow wow wow wow” – the musicianship however, is... Read More »

Romel Louis – “A Love Affair”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: “SPECIAL THANKS TO: God and my mom and dad G. Louis. The Louis families and to those of you who co-operated in this realization.

Debbie Harry – “Rush Rush (Special Extended Remix)”

Debbie Harry – “Rush Rush (Special Extended Remix)”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review: So basically, everyone knows this song from two places, the first and most primary being the soundtrack to the 1983 film, “Scarface” – the second, where I first (and most people my age) heard the song was the video game Grand Theft Auto III, which featured almost...
