as far back as i can remember, my life included a musical soundtrack. fortunately for me, i grew up in the 80s and my mom was still in her 20s, and was still pretty cool. she listened to all of the best disco inspired or synthy 80s goodness, not just the top pop shit. as i grew older and came into my own, i got into more obscure 80s stuff, and i got way into synth-pop. i also went to raves and got into house music. it all really blended together more and more with time going by (it’s crazy how much i didn’t know when i was younger bc we lacked the abundance of info we have on the internet, now). a lot usually points back to giorgio moroder, and i love it.
the father of disco. a true pioneer for all of the sounds that make my heart happy. whether it’s his influence or his production, it usually falls back on him. ♥
this was stuck in my head this morning (video below), and is prob my favorite duran duran track. i threw the album on (it’s one of my faves – and was released the same year i was born!) and looked up the wikipedia deets. of course moroder was mentioned as an influence. makes total sense…
the dancing in this video, i can not, lol.
the blouses! i can not.
john taylor, i absolutely dear satan WOULD. : drools :
anyways, enjoy (if you’re into 80s/new wave)… and happy fuckin friday!
