...tantas Saudades...!!!

  80s Music



UHF thrones on top of all the rest - com certesa
e sem duvida nenhuma!


But, afterwards, it is hard to decide between...
The Tubes... The Buggles... and The Motels?












































"Only The Lonely" - The Motels




"Suddenly Last Summer" - The Motels



"Shame" - The Motels (Shame On Me... Shame On You... 
Shame On Everything Little Thing That We Do...!)
Martha Davis was the very best back then!




"Mission of Mercy" - The Motels




"Wasteland" - The Mission 
--- although our favorite is, clearly, Tower Of Strength!




"1969" - The Mission
You know - I always sided with The Mission in the age-old debate 
"which is better: 
U2 or The Mission?"
Live performances are never a good barometer though - 
then again, some artists never perform their material ''live''


"On Ne Peut Pas Tous Être Pauvre" - Yves Jacques
A curiosity - of the Québécois angst order... Bourgeoisie and the envy of the neighbor 
(that makes them want to make music as if they were Americans... for instance) 
is very evident, painfully obvious here... 
Still - an adequate time capsule! 
AND it is the first ever videoclip made in Québec too!
  ______







"Sensoria" - Cabaret Voltaire
A classic from the REAL year 1984...!




"Trust In The Lord" - Cabaret Voltaire 
(and other tunes...)









"One of the Living" - Tina Turner (1985)
The song was written and composed by Holly Knight who also co-wrote 
Turner's singles "The Best" and "Better Be Good to Me." 
In 1986, ''One Of The Living'' won 
the Grammy Award for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance.
People tend to forget that...!



"Train of Thought" - A-ha



"The Sun Always Shines On TV" - A-ha
and some extras:
___











"Hanging On The Telephone" - Blondie




"Atomic" - Blondie

(which is excellent too - but wait 'til you catch a glimpse of the Gentleman Ghost 
- dancing - on the next classic video - from 1981...!)
____________





"Rapture" - Blondie

Wow.
Has it really been 20 years...?

  Kissing Bandidas
It is difficult to pin down with accuracy which time - which coupling - which sinful display of lustful decadence... triggered it, really! There were far fewer "chances" of the kind, back in the day... Now, they are increasingly more common place but back then, it was rare: to be teased, visually stimulated and excited, all at once, by the sight of two women together happened once in a blue moon - almost. And for the young men like me, shy and reserved, not prone to imagine such things happened all the time since the dawn of history, all over the world - the sight of such things... left an impression. A lasting impression, I might add! The esthetics of it appealed to both the basic luscious, biological-wired for these things young stud that is about to emerge... They also appeal to the artist in you, if you are anything like me that is! And, in hindsight, it might also be a case of quantity over quality, quite simply - two harlots (two pairs, as some rabble might say...) are better than one good girl... not! But the lustful eye of youth does not know that!


so... who were the two kissing bandits 
that were the most guilty 
in the perversion 
of youth here? 
*lol* 

THE CHIEF SUSPECTS ARE: 


Capucine and Suzy Kendall - in a spy movie 
unlike any other, at the time...





Catherine Deneuve says ''Écoute, Voir'' to Anne Parillaud
(as nonsensical as it does sound; it still inspired 
a certain Atomic Blonde, I think...)




Lilli Palmer and Romy Schneider - 
as surprising as it still sounds nowadays




Nathalie Delon and Sybil Danning

 

...there had to be something from the year 1969... 
Nathalie Delon again - with Susan Strasberg, this time
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
wow... someone actually uploaded this old 

biographical made-for-TV series about 
Colette - with Clémentine Amouroux 
in the title role - and Annie Jouzier.
--------------------------------------------------



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Marie-Hélène Breillat (before Maria de Medeiros...)
and a bevy of partners, really - most notably... ''Dani'' 
(again - the French! Ah, those darn French...!!!) 



Hanna Schygulla and Margit Carstensen

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


... and Greta The Great (?) 
-she cannot be omitted- 
and Cecilia Parker (...who?)
-------------------------------------------------------



I reserve the right to pass on MARLENE...
My blog - minhas saudades - my prerogative!
Capisce?

Others have taken to highlight both golden age actresses
and members of the Sewing Circle (...) aplenty...
already.

Name:

Born in the Age of Aquarius, destined to seek out truths in many an art form, trained as a historian and a journalist but truly a prose-lover... Luciano is out to dispel any clichés and reinvent them all both to the tune of a little something called the truth as also to his own image - and being old-fashioned, he does not mind that distinction one infinitesimal tiny bit at all...! "There are two ways to spread the light; be the candle... or the mirror that reflects It." I have chosen to be the latter... okay? ~*~ "To be not only a seeker of light... but a dream weaver of light" ~*~ For as surely as the moon reflects the light from the sun, you and I can reflect the Light from Above - and be, indeed, the light of this world! ~*~*~*~
