Retro Saturday: The Alarm

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, but they came to my attention before that with "The Stand" which is probably my favourite song of theirs.

And let's not forget "Rain in the Summertime": and "Where Were You Hiding When The Storm Broke"

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 :)
