STUART'S PANORAMIC WORLD     MASTERTRONIC - WHAT IF?     TREKKIE DAD AND SUPER SOPHIE

The random ramblings of a Star Trek-obsessed schools ICT Systems Manager who likes a good moan.
This is a place where I can whinge about life, and express my love of my family, 80's music, retro computer gaming (especially on my Commodore 64),
 oh and Star Trek. I'm very open with my opinions and I like a good moan. If you don't like what I say, then you might want to consider not reading this blog.

Songs that remind me of my childhood Number 21 - Doctor Doctor (Thompson Twins)

Todays "Song That Remind Me Of My Childhood" comes from a song that was playing on my car stereo during the drive to work this morning.

There are a few songs/groups which I think are the epitome of the New Wave/New Romantic scene of the 1980's.  Groups such as Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, ABC define the popular music of this decade, and whether you like them or not, their impact on my generation was massive and will forever be remembered as a big part of our youth.

Doctor Doctor, by the Thompson Twins is another example of this.  The simple 4 note electronic intro sets the mood for a fantastic bit of 80s nostalgia.  Released in February 1983 and reaching number 4 in the UK charts (back in a time when listening to the UK charts was actually an enjoyable experience), have a listen to this...  and enjoy. 


 
Ahhhhhh.... the memories.
