Fine Young Cannibals


Pop Rock is not my favorite music genre at all and this group is neither a very representative one of the 80s... They did not sound too bad anyway and they had a couple of hits that were pretty good. Just give then a try!.

Martha & the Vandellas

Martha and the Vandellas (known from 1967 to 1972 as Martha Reeves and the Vandellas) were among the most successful groups of the Motown roster during the period 1963–1967. In contrast to other Motown groups such as The Supremes and The Marvelettes, Martha and the Vandellas were known for a harder, R&B sound, typified by "(Love Is Like a) Heat Wave", "Nowhere to Run", "Jimmy Mack" and, their signature song, "Dancing in the Street"... read more

Bonnie Tyler

"raspy voice that sounds like she falls asleep smoking unfiltered cigarettes every night"... that's how they call this amazing voice on rhapsody.com. They are probably right, but she is considered one of the best female singers of the 70s and 80s by many people (by me too).

    A Whiter Shade Of Pale - Procol Harum


    More Info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Procol_Harum

    Procol Harum are an English rock band formed in 1967. They are mostly known by their hit a Whiter Shade of Pale, yet they have at least 12 studio albums.










    Same song, same group (just "a few" years later)



    Lyrics:
    We skipped the light fandango
    Turned cartwheels 'cross the floor
    I was feeling kinda seasick
    But the crowd called out for more
    The room was humming harder
    As the ceiling flew away
    When we called out for another drink
    And the waiter brought a tray

    And so it was that later
    As the miller told his tale
    That her face, at first just ghostly,
    Turned a whiter shade of pale

    She said, "There is no reason
    And the truth is plain to see."
    But I wandered through my playing cards
    And they would not let her be
    One of sixteen vestal virgins
    Who were leaving for the coast
    And although my eyes were open wide
    They might have just as well been closed

    And so it was that later
    As the miller told his tale
    That her face, at first just ghostly,
    Turned a whiter shade of pale

    She said, "I'm here on a shore leave,"
    Though we were miles at sea.
    I pointed out this detail
    And forced her to agree,
    Saying, "You must be the mermaid
    Who took King Neptune for a ride."
    And she smiled at me so sweetly
    That my anger straightway died.

    And so it was that later
    As the miller told his tale
    That her face, at first just ghostly,
    Turned a whiter shade of pale

    If music be the food of love
    Then laughter is it's queen
    And likewise if behind is in front
    Then dirt in truth is clean
    My mouth by then like cardboard
    Seemed to slip straight through my head
    So we crash-dived straightway quickly
    And attacked the ocean bed

    And so it was that later
    As the miller told his tale
    That her face, at first just ghostly,
    Turned a whiter shade of pale
