You may (or probably may not) ask yourself what makes me choose the songs/singers for Retro Saturday. Sometimes it's just a song which pops into my head, other times it's a "do you remember that song/band?" conversation.
During a conversation with faithful travelling companion earlier today he mentioned The Alarm and I immediately said "that's one for Retro Saturday!"
"68 Guns" from 1983 was their biggest hit in the UK charts, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jR20uChph7c&feature=fvsr but they came to my attention before that with "The Stand" which is probably my favourite song of theirs. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMXSiL56QR4
And let's not forget "Rain in the Summertime": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8D6pPgwafq0&ob=av2e and "Where Were You Hiding When The Storm Broke" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIX3DLQiH7s&feature=related
By the way, that conversation this morning also gave me an idea for a Retro Saturday special - check back here same time next Saturday night :)
