Sucker for sunny pop goodness (and for charming ladies) that I am, I confess that Bananarama has long been one of my guiltiest pleasures.
You’ll find out how that came to be if you head over to The Midnight Tracker, our other blog.
Tonight’s selection is Side 1 from Bananarama’s self-titled album, which saw plenty of action on the turntable 24 summers ago.
You know “Cruel Summer,” the hit single off that album.
Another of my favorites is this cut, also from Side 1. It’s a sunny, sassy but ultimately sad tale about unattainable women.
“Dream Baby,” Bananarama, from “Bananarama,” 1984.
If you check out the album side, you’ll hear the secret cut that followed this tune at the end of Side 1.
