My Top Ten 80s Songs of All Time #10
I want to start out by saying that this Top 10 list currently actually has over 20 songs on it. I’ve scratched out, moved around and arranged, so I have 10 to share. Remember that this is MY list, based on my memories, tastes and what makes me smile, laugh and reminisce. I expect you’ll have your opinions and thoughts, and I can’t wait to hear them. That said, Here we go:
T’Pau – Heart & Soul
T’Pau was a British Pop Band formed in 1986. Led by singer Carol Decker, they released “Heart & Soul” in 1987. It went on to become their biggest US hit. They released 4 albums in the UK, but they split up in 1991, following the release of their last album. Interesting fact: T’Pau took their name from the name of a Vulcan Priestess in the original Star Trek series.
Now – this video. Everything about it SCREAMS 80s. From the multiple synthesizers leading the music, to the absolutely FANTASTIC big hair on the lead singer’s hair. I’m not sure if you noticed, but there are so many shoulder pads in those coats that it makes my neck hurt.
I love the hazy video overlaid with shots of the band playing and Decker’s breathy, almost-whispering singing of the lyrics is so cheesy I can’t help but love it.
You could also consider this a one-hit wonder band too, except that they had several hits in UK during this time, so we’ll stick with the fact that I love the video, even as simple as it is and with it’s “sing-along-ability.” I think this song stands up to time and is still a fun one to listen to. It’s on my playlist, and I’m guessing it’s on some of yours too.
Up next – #9
