Goin’ Old School: Thompson Twins, Pamala Stanley & Vangelis

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

Some TOTP to start with, Thompson Twins with ‘Love On Your Side’ from 1983.

Pamala Stanley’s Italo fuelled DiscoPop from 1983,  ‎’Coming Out Of Hiding’.

OK, so it’s not a music video, but it is the first two minutes of the greatest movie ever made with the greatest soundtrack ever written. Vangelis’ ‘BladeRunner Main Titles’ from 1982 (although not properly released, not counting the New American Orchestra version, until 1994).

Goin’ Old School: Vangelis – Pulstar

Today, in honour of the late, great, Carl Sagan’s birthday we are posting ‘Pulstar’.  Vangelis’ 1975 synth wizardry, and the music from the exciting bits from Cosmos. Here is the man himself preforming the track in 1991.
