Michel Sardou - Le France / Fais Des Chansons (1975) - single

Michel Sardou (born 26 January 1947) is a French singer, songwriter and occasional actor.
Sardou was born in Paris, the son of Fernand Sardou and Jackie Caron (Jackie Sardou). He is the grandson of the comedian Valentin Sardou, as well as father of the French novelist Romain Sardou and the actor Davy Sardou.
In 1976 he released the album “La Vieille” (The Old Woman). The first single from it, "Le France" ("SS France"), released on November 1975, was a message of indignation addressed to the President of France Valéry Giscard d'Estaing, who had just sold the ocean liner SS France. The controversial song was welcomed by the trade unions and the Communist Party even though Sardou was seen, because of several other songs, as an archetypal reactionary singer.

Randy Newman & Paul Simon - The Blues / Same Girl (1982) - single

"The Blues" is een samenwerking tussen Randy Newman en Paul Simon en is een satire over singer-songwriters die de behoefte voelen om persoonlijke problemen te verwerken in hun muziek.
Op het album “Trouble In Paradise” (1983) vertelt Newman meer van dit soort korte verhalen over het leven in de jaren '80 met het nodige cynisme.
Van een arrogante Amerikaanse yup die zeurt over kleinigheidjes tot een racistische Zuid-Afrikaan, Randy Newman zet je aan het denken op dit album.  http://www.bing.com/translator

Gilla - Ich Brenne / Du Bist Nicht Die Erste Liebe (1976) - single

Gilla (born Gisela Wuchinger, 27 February 1950) is an Austrian singer from the late 1970s disco era.
Gilla was discovered by German producer Frank Farian who got her signed to Hansa Records in 1974. After an unsuccessful German cover version "Mir ist kein Weg zu weit" of Marcella Bella's Italian hit single "Nessuno mai", Farian had her record a German disco version of Labelle's "Lady Marmalade". Despite being a modest hit (#24), it caused some attention of being the first German record to feature such explicit lyrics as "Willst du mit mir schlafen gehn?" (Do You Want to Sleep With Me) (1975). It was followed later in the year with "Tu es" (also recorded in English as "Why Don't You Do It") which became Gilla's biggest hit, peaking at #10 in the German charts and giving Farian a commercial breakthrough as a producer. Gilla's debut LP, featuring a mix of disco, pop and schlager tracks, was released shortly after.
In the summer of 1976, Gilla followed with "Ich Brenne" (I'm Burning), once again also recorded in English in 1977 as "Help Help". It was a Dutch hit single but fared less well in Germany. Farian remixed the track with his own vocals for inclusion on Boney M.'s “Take the Heat Off Me” to replace "Baby Do You Wanna Bump" in some territories.

Donna Summer - Winter Melody / Full Of Empiness (1977) - single

"Winter Melody" is a song by American singer and songwriter Donna Summer released as a single in early-1977 from her “Four Seasons of Love” album. It became a top 30 hit in the UK.
By this time Summer was making her name as the queen of disco music, though this song is a soul ballad.
The song represented the "winter" phase of the concept album, and speaks of a woman struggling to come to terms with the fact that her relationship has ended.
As with much of Summer's material at that time (particularly with songs found on her concept albums), the song played for a considerable amount of time (over six minutes), however, the song was edited for its release as a single.

The Tourists - I Only Want To Be With You / Summers Night (1979) - single

The Tourists (1977–1980) were a British rock and pop band. They achieved brief success in the late 1970s before the band split in 1980. Two of its members, singer Annie Lennox and guitarist Dave Stewart, went on to achieve massive international success as Eurythmics.
Peet Coombes was a guitarist singer-songwriter, while Dave Stewart, also a guitarist, had been a member of the folk rock band, Longdancer, who were signed to Elton John's Rocket label. The two moved to London and encountered Scottish singer Annie Lennox who had dropped out of her course at the Royal Academy of Music, where she had been studying flute and keyboards, to pursue her ambitions in pop music.
"I Only Want to Be with You" is a rock-and-roll song by Mike Hawker and Ivor Raymonde. The debut solo single released by British singer Dusty Springfield under her long-time producer Johnny Franz.
"I Only Want to Be With You" covered by The Tourists was a top 10 hit in Australia and made the US Billboard Hot 100 (#83). Coombes was the band's main songwriter, although later releases saw the first compositions by Lennox and Stewart, who were also in a relationship for a time. The band's music expanded using their folk roots, demonstrating some punk energy, reggae and 1960s pop influences. A key development was their decision to record later material with German avant-garde producer Conny Plank and a transfer to RCA Records in 1980.

Danny Mirror - We Wish You (A Merry Christmas) / Why Should I Tell You This Story (1977) - single

Eddy Ouwens (Rotterdam, 30 mei 1946) is een Nederlands zanger, componist en muziekproducent.
Ouwens speelde als 13-jarige reeds in een coverbandje en organiseerde concertavonden die hij vaak zelf presenteerde. Hij benaderde bekende artiesten en wist onder andere Johnny Jordaan, Rob de Nijs en Conny Vandenbos voor zijn shows te strikken. Rond 1966 organiseerde en presenteerde hij talentenjachten. Toen een winnende popgroep zonder zanger kwam te zitten, bood hij zichzelf aan. De aldus gevormde band Eddysons trad op door heel Nederland. In april 1968 werd met de song “Ups and downs” de Veronica Top 40 gehaald. Drie andere nummers halen de Tipparade. In 1969 brak Ouwens met de band om verder te gaan als muziekproducent. Omdat hij daar onvoldoende mee verdiende, was hij tevens werkzaam bij een muziekuitgeverij, als plugger en in de weekeinden als diskjockey. Via Vincent van Engelen kwam hij bij de VARA, waarvoor hij aanvankelijk drive-inshows presenteerde. Vanaf 1972 presenteerde hij het televisieprogramma Pop Zien, waarin internationale acts als Mud, Rod Stewart, Eagles en Ry Cooder optraden. Ook haalde hij als eerste ABBA naar Nederland. Zijn eerste succes als producent scoorde hij in 1972 met het nummer “Summer Of '71” van Bolland & Bolland. Een jaar later is hij succesvol met het door hem geschreven en geproduceerde “Ginny Ginny”, “Is everybody happy” en “One and one is one” van de band Jackpot.
Vanaf 1974 legde Ouwens zich nog enkel toe op componeren en produceren. Hij was de man achter het Nederlandse songfestivalsucces “Ding-a-Dong” van Teach-In. Met deze groep en met Jackpot scoorde hij in deze periode verschillende hits. Een meer persoonlijk succes kwam in 1977 toen hij naar aanleiding van het overlijden van Elvis Presley het nummer “I remember Elvis Presley” schreef en onder het pseudoniem Danny Mirror uitbracht. Als opvolger bracht hij de kerstsingle “We Wish You (A Merry Christmas)” uit. Dit werd geen hit.

Kate Bush - December Will Be Magic Again / Warm And Soothing (1978) - single

"December Will Be Magic Again" is a one-off single by English singer-songwriter-pianist Kate Bush. The single was released in the U.K. in November 1980.
The song was written and originally recorded in 1979 at Abbey Road Studio 2 London with Preston Heyman on Drums, Sleigh Bells and Maraccas, Alan Murphy Guitar, Kuma Harada on Bass and Kate herself on Piano, but not released until the Christmas season of the next year on 17 November 1980. The single peaked at number 29 on the UK Singles Chart, but due to its early release date had slipped before the Christmas week. No promotional video was filmed for this single, but an alternative recording of the song was performed on Bush's 1979 Christmas television special. Neither has ever appeared on a Kate Bush album, except for the “This Woman's Work” box set, but both have managed to find their way on to various Christmas compilations.
The B-side was "Warm and Soothing", a simple piece of Bush singing with just her piano accompaniment. In this sense it was similar in style to "In the Warm Room" and "Feel It" from her first two albums. This was the first song she recorded at Abbey Road Studios.

Jona Lewie - Stop The Cavalry / Laughing Tonight (1980) - single

"Stop the Cavalry" is a song written and performed by the English musician Jona Lewie.
The song peaked at number three in the UK Singles Chart in December 1980. In an interview for Channel 4's 100 Greatest Christmas Moments, Lewie said that the song was never intended as a Christmas hit, and that it was a protest song. The line 'Wish I was at home for Christmas' as well as the brass band arrangements made it an appropriately styled song to play around Christmas time.
The song's promotional video is set in the trenches of the First World War. The lyrics of the song mention cavalry and Churchill (who served as the First Lord of the Admiralty in the first year of the war, prior to serving in the trenches himself), but it breaks with the First World War theme with references to nuclear fallout and the line "I have had to fight, almost every night, down throughout these centuries". Lewie described the song's soldier as being "a bit like the eternal soldier at the Arc de Triomphe".
At the time there was an increase in tension between the West and the Soviet Union, with American-controlled nuclear cruise missiles being stationed in the UK and a renewed fear of nuclear war. That is the context in which this anti-war song was written, and explains the reference to the fallout shelter. The song's melody is loosely based on a theme from Swedish Rhapsody No. 1 by Hugo Alfvén, and its major musical elements bear a resemblance to Mozart's Rondo in D Major, K382.

The Kinks - Father Christmas / Prince Of The Punks (1977) - single

"Father Christmas" is a 1977 single by English group The Kinks.
It tells of a department store Father Christmas who is beaten up by a gang of poor kids who tell him to give them money instead of toys, as toys are impractical; and asks that the toys be given "to the little rich boys."  At one point, a child asks the narrator to give his/her father a job for Christmas or, if he must deliver a toy, a machine gun. The song has been covered a number of times by bands including the Gigolo Aunts, Green Day, Man Overboard, Bad Religion, Warrant, Lit, Bowling For Soup, Save Ferris, Smash Mouth, Cary Brothers, Action Action, Everything, Deer Tick, OK Go, and the Clay Pigeons.

Nick Kamen - Each Time You Break My Heart / Instrumental (1986) - single

Ivor Neville "Nick" Kamen (born 15 April 1962 in Harlow, Essex, England, England) is an English male model, songwriter and musician, and brother of session guitarist Chester Kamen.
"Each Time You Break My Heart" is his 1986 debut single from his debut album “Nick Kamen”, released in 1987.
Nick Kamen attained popularity in 1986 when his modelling career gave him the chance to star in Levi's "Launderette" television commercial. The clip showed him stripping down to stone-wash his blue jeans in a 1950s style public laundromat while he waits clad only in his boxer shorts, which was one of a series of Bartle Bogle Hegarty advertisements that dramatically increased the popularity of Levi 501s. The commercial, directed by Roger Lyons, was selected for, and came fourth in, The 100 Greatest TV Ads in 2000. Kamen later decided to delve into music, and released his self titled debut album in 1986. Written and produced by Madonna and Stephen Bray, "Each Time You Break My Heart" was the lead single from the album. Madonna had previously expressed interest in producing Kamen's record. But since she was busy shooting for her film, Who's That Girl then titled Slammer, she chose to write and compose one song. Madonna had originally written and recorded the song for her third studio album, “True Blue”, but it did not make the cut.

Bonnie Pointer - Heaven Must Have Sent You (Remix) / Heaven Must Have Sent You (Album Version) (1979) - single

Patricia Eva "Bonnie" Pointer (born July 11, 1950) is an American R&B and disco singer, most notable for being the next-to-youngest member of the 1970s and 1980s family music group, The Pointer Sisters. She scored several moderate solo hits after leaving the Pointers in 1977.
"Heaven Must Have Sent You" is a song written by Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier, and Eddie Holland when at Motown, and first recorded by The Elgins in 1966.
Bonnie Pointer's version reached #11 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1979. A 12/8 shuffle, it begins with rhythmic tubular bells ringing. Violins supply the background for the entire song. After the bells, a funky bass guitar is played, as a refrain throughout the song. This can be heard three times between the verses. In the middle of the song, an instrumental interlude is played, with the tubular bells ringing. At the end of the song, Pointer sings her last lines "It's heaven, it's heaven, I'll love you more and more each day..." in a lower register, with a raspy tone, reminiscent of Al Jolson.

The Belle Stars - Sweet Memory / April Fool (1983) - single

The Belle Stars were an all female British pop/rock band, founded in London in 1980 by former members of the 2 Tone ska revival band, The Bodysnatchers.
After The Bodysnatchers broke up, guitarists Stella Barker and Sarah-Jane Owen, saxophonist Miranda Joyce, keyboardist Penny Leyton, and drummer Judy Parsons decided to form a new band, recruiting bass player Lesley Shone and lead vocalist Jennie Matthias (also known as Jenny McKeown and Jenny Bellestar). Their first performance was on Christmas Day, 1980, before they had chosen a name.
"Sweet Memory" is their eighth single overall. Unlike its predecessor, “Sign of the Times”, it did not make it into the top 10. However, it did manage to get into the top 30.
“Sweet Memory” is a song that conveys how much hatred the singer and the lover used to show each other, and how the lover should stop wasting his love by cheating on other people. The singer explains how she brings back terrible memories when thinking about how much hatred her and her lover portrayed.

Andrew Lloyd Webber - Theme And Variations 1-4 / Variation 16 (1978) - single

Andrew Lloyd Webber, Baron Lloyd-Webber (born 22 March 1948) is an English composer and impresario of musical theatre.
Several of his musicals have run for more than a decade both in the West End and on Broadway. He has composed 13 musicals, a song cycle, a set of variations, two film scores, and a Latin Requiem Mass.
“Variations” is a classical and rock fusion album. The music was composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber and performed by his younger brother, the cellist Julian Lloyd Webber.
The Lloyd Webber brothers were always very close but their two different careers (a rock musical composer and a classical cellist) meant that a collaboration seemed unlikely. It was not until Julian beat his brother in a bet on a Leyton Orient football match that Andrew was forced to write his cello work.
As his subject, Andrew chose the theme of Paganini's 24th caprice and added 23 variations for cello and rock band. The work premiered at the 1977 Sydmonton Festival with rock band Colosseum II, featuring Gary Moore, Jon Hiseman and Don Airey being joined by Barbara Thompson (sax, flute), Rod Argent (piano, synthesizer, keyboards) and Julian Lloyd Webber (cello). It was subsequently rearranged and recorded in 1978.

The Wurzels - The Combine Harvester (Brand New Key) / The Blackbird (1976) - single

The Wurzels are a Scrumpy and Western band from Somerset, England, best known for their number one hit “The Combine Harvester”.
The Wurzels were formed in 1966 as a backing group for, and by, singer/songwriter Adge Cutler. With a thick Somerset accent, Adge played on his West Country roots, singing many folk songs with local themes such as cider making (and drinking), farming, dung-spreading, local villages and industrial work songs, often with a comic slant.
During the latter half of the 1960s, the band became immensely popular regionally, and the release of the single "Drink Up Thy Zider" in 1966 led to national fame and it reaching number 45 in the UK chart. The B-side "Twice Daily" was banned by the BBC for being too raunchy.
In 1976, the Wurzels released "The Combine Harvester", a re-work of the song "Brand New Key", by Melanie, which became a UK hit, topping the charts for 2 weeks.

Wham - Club Fantastic Megamix / A Ray Of Sunshine (Instrumental Mix) (1983) - single

Wham! was an English musical duo formed by George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley in the early 1980s. They were briefly known in the United States as Wham! UK due to a naming conflict with an American band. Wham! sold more than 25 million certified records worldwide from 1982 to 1986.
"Club Fantastic Megamix" was a single released by Wham! in 1983, and was the last single release for the duo on Innervision Records. It was approved by Mark Dean, the manager of Innervision Records. The single was released three months after Wham! had begun proceedings to leave the label, and was disapproved of by George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley. The single, which consisted of a mix of the tracks "A Ray of Sunshine", "Love Machine", and "Come On" off the album “Fantastic”.
The only reason why the “Club Fantastic Megamix” was able to be released was because the songs had already been released. Prior to a song being released a publisher has the right to grant the first license of a tune of which he holds the copyright. Because those three tracks had already been released into the public domain, they were unable to do anything about preventing the release.
