Kim Wilde’s 80s Top 10 : (comments by Kim wilde)
1)Spandau Ballet – To Cut a Long Story Short
“Spandau’s first release and my personal fave. I remember dancing to this at a local New Romantic Club called ‘Club For Heroes’ which was run by a couple of friends of mine and being inspired by its hypnotic energy and Tony’s epic vocals”.
2)Ultravox – Vienna
“Hands down one of the best records made during the 80’s. I have toured with Midge often, and always swoon when I hear this amazing song, it takes me straight back to that wonderful decade !”
3)Altered Images – I Could be Happy
“I always loved this thoroughly British post punk/new wave band, especially the charismatic and very lovely Clare Grogan. This single was produced by the brilliant Martin Rushent (of Dare), and I still have it on vinyl”.
4)Visage – Fade to Grey
“Released in late 1980, this record made a big impact on so many, inspiring other producers and artistes alike in sound and presentation. Steve is synonymous with the 80’s and I’m glad to say we became good friends”.
5)AC/DC – Back in Black
“AC/DC; reminding us all that the 80’s weren’t all synths and shoulder pads. The mighty Rockers penned a Rock Anthem at the very beginning of the decade, and one that has never been beaten in my opinion”.
6)Human League – Love Action
“This single from the iconic ‘Dare’ album came out shortly after ‘Kids in America’ in 1981. My brother, Ricky Wilde, was heavily influenced by their sound, which permeated through our own recordings as a result. I’m proud to say I’ve toured with them several times”.
7)The Smiths – How Soon is Now
“Released in 1985, at the time the legendary Sire Records chief, Seymour Stein, called it ‘the “Stairway to Heaven” of the 80’s’ ….and for good reason”.
8)Michael Jackson – Another Part of Me
“This was the 6th single to be released from ‘Bad’, and my fave from that album. Every time I hear it I’m reminded of touring with him in ’88 – an incredible 34 dates over 4 months. Life changing”.
9)New Order – Blue Monday
“Released in 1983, this incredibly influential record still sounds as cool and contemporary today as it did then”.
10)Pretenders – Brass in Pocket
“This record came out in 1980 while I was at Art College, I still have the 45 vinyl. Chrissie Hynde is the coolest rock chick on the planet, and has written some outstanding songs throughout her career. She remains one of my biggest influences and inspirations”.
