Goin’ Old School: Nik Kershaw, Paul Hardcastle & Thompson Twins

Goin’ Old School isn’t a trip down music memory lane, it’s a mugging in the dark alleyway of nostalgia:

Nik Kershaw has just brand new single, The Sky’s The Limit, and album EI8HT, so let’s revisit Human Racing from 1984.

The smooth side of Paul Hardcastle with the soulful Electro Boogie of Don’t Waste My Time, featuring Carol Kenyon, from 1986

Ending today’s Goin’ Old School is the Pop Funk of Thompson Twins with 1982’s Lies.

Goin’ Old School: Howard Jones, Yellow Magic Orchestra & Nik Kershaw

Goin’ Old School isn’t a trip down music memory lane, it’s a mugging in the dark alleyway of nostalgia:

Probably Mr. Howard Jones’s most well known hit, 1983’s ‘What Is Love?’

From 1979, because it was reMixed this week and it’s in my head, Yellow Magic Orchestra’s ‘Techopolis’

Nik Kershaw’s ‘Wouldn’t It Be Good’, really good video for the time, still looks fantastic, if dated. From 1984.
