Re: Today's Tune

Queen of Times - Ever and Ever
Love the mystical-sounding riff while the Cm-Db-Fm progression in the verse gives it a 'frantic' and 'urgent' kinda feeling.

A short instrumental hook during the break of Annerley Gordon - Sexy Boy, Sexy Toy was taken from an italo track called "Mandrill" by Patrick Colby.
Choruses show some similarity as well. Both Gino Caria & Sandro Oliva are involved in the writing of the two songs.

Valentina - Waste My Time
Tried playing this on the piano today by memory. Always thought this was a Queen of Times track but the vinyl says it's by Valentina...

Norma Sheffield - Free in the Sky
Didn't like it at first, the bridge sounded ill-fitting with the verse. But the chorus is fantastic and the riff is dreamy in an Italo-disco sort of way.

Vanessa - Hey Hey
The rapid-fire chopped vocals in the break really elevate an already excellent track to another level.

Laurie - Sweet Lover This has got to be one of my favorite songs of the italo era. I've listened to it countless times and never gotten sick of it. The interplay between the swift, syncopated backdrop synths and sugary vocal melody is absolute magic. Excellent pick! It's hard for me to choose a fav...

Gino Caria - Hold The Line (ABeatC)
Love that one!

Robert X - Vision
Great intro, mixing is closer to mid-80s Italo so it has a slightly "washed out" and dreamy kind of sound.

Sonya - It's a Miracle
Main vocals sound like a composite of Norma and Elena Ferretti... and Domino.
