SONGS THAT REMIND ME OF MY CHILDHOOD     GAMES THAT REMIND ME OF MY CHILDHOOD    
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 32 - Always On My Mind (Pet Shop Boys)


Following on from my last blog post, I'm keeping with the Pet Shop Boys because Always on my Mind stands out as not only being one of the best cover songs ever made, but possibly one of the greatest pop songs of the 1980s (perhaps all time) and a massive favourite of mine since I was a wee lad.

It's quite appropriate that I have chosen this song as my STRMOMC as today marks 27 years (yes, TWENTY SEVEN YEARS) since the song entered its consecutive fourth fantastic week at the number 1 position on the Official UK Charts, after having been the Christmas number one a few weeks previously.

Why can't modern groups produce belters like this any more, instead of the usual Crap Factor turds.

Also, you've got to love the video, featuring clips from their rather bizarre movie "It Couldn't Happen Here", and of course starring De Nomolos himself (from Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey) Joss Ackland, and even Biggles!


 
"Where are you going?"
 
"I'm going there....  But I like it here wherever it is".
