Random 80's Wednesday

Quando Quango - Atom Rock
Roman Holliday - One Foot Back In Your Door
Cocteau Twins - Aikea Guinea
Fiction Factory - Not The Only One
Jamie Rae - Pretty One

All of these were released in the same week, in March of 1985. Also released were "We Close Our Eyes" by Go West and "Kiss Me" by Stephen Tin Tin Duffy, but I think you may have already heard those...

just discovered your excellent blog (by way of a google search for the Halleluiah Man song - thanks!).
Great great stuff you've got here.
Am I permitted to ask for a request? YOu wouldn't by any chance have the song "Woman" by Billy London? Early eighties synthpop - been looking for it for ages, but it's nowhere to be found. Anyway, keep up the good work- you're in my bookmarks now! ;-)

Thanks Koop, nice to have you visit. I'll have a look and see if I can find that one...

Hi! I discovered your blog through a friend who was looking for Private Lives stuff. Wow! Fantastic work on the music posted. Another gem in the net. Would you happen to have the 12" version of Fiction Factory's All Or Nothing? It would be great if you can post a 320 or flac of the entire single. Thanks in advance. Cheers!

Funny how I never heard this track. Though it seems like CBS dropped them and this appears on an indie? Not The Only One, a bit of a beaut. Kind of an off-handed charm, the verse is stronger than the chorus. Not even bothered by the key change at the end. How's the b-side of this?
