Depeche Mode - Strangelove b/w Pimf (1987) - single














"Strangelove" is Depeche Mode's 18th UK single, released on 13 April 1987, and the 1st single for the then upcoming album Music for the Masses.
The original version of "Strangelove" is a fast-paced pop track. Though successful, this did not seem to fit with Music for the Masses's darker style, so Daniel Miller made a slower version that became the album version.

In 1978, Johnny "Guitar" Watson's backup band decided to record a project as the Watsonian Institute. “Master Funk” is the only LP that was released under that name, and for all intents and purposes, this is very much a Johnny "Guitar" Watson album. In addition to doing all of the producing and arranging, the late singer/guitarist wrote most of the material and contributed his share of lead vocals. So not surprisingly, his stamp is all over “Master Funk”.

Secret Service - Flash In The Night b/w Watching Julietta (1981) - single

Secret Service is a Swedish new wave/pop band, popular in the early 1980s. In 1979, Ola Håkansson, former vocalist of Ola & the Janglers and then a publishing manager at Sonet Records, teamed up with Tim Norell and Ulf Wahlberg to write a few songs that they submitted to the Melodifestivalen, a popular Swedish song contest. They did not win but decided to continue working together and changed their band's name from Ola+3 to Secret Service. Besides Ola Håkansson (vocals), Tim Norell and Ulf Wahlberg (keyboards), the original lineup also included Tony Lindberg (guitars), Leif Paulsen (bass) and Leif Johansson (drums). Norell, who penned along with Håkansson most songs of the band, did not however appear with them on stage or on the album covers. Secret Service's first single "Oh Susie" became a hit in Sweden and several other countries in Europe, in South America and Australia. Their album of the same title included another hit, "Ten O'Clock Postman", which went gold in Sweden. Other successes followed, with their synthpop number "Flash in the Night" in 1982 (their greatest success) hitting charts all over continental Europe.
