Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

RetroTragic
No VAULT tonight ... bummer! With 90s etc being played on the VAULT during January, we're overdue a 70s or 80s VAULT, I reckon.
Vault Night is technically tonight when they are showing a Countdown and an episode of Beatbox.

I am hopeful of something good on the Beatbox episode as it is from 1985 and features Beargarden. They released The Finer Things (Sept 1984) and I Write The News (Aug 1985) which have been shown on Countdown episodes but I think their best song was Drink Drink Drink from November 1985 and that was only ever shown as a snippet on Countdown. I have never seen the full clip.

I have got their full live performance of Drink Drink Drink from Hey Hey It's Saturday but would love to see the actual clip in full. I made up clips of both the 7" and 12" versions (as I have them in vinyl) about 10 years ago and posted to YouTube using the snippet that I had.

Unfortunately the episode is from June so it is unlikely to have Drink Drink Drink.

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

No Drink, Drink, Drink :-(

I didn't think it would be on for April, 1985

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

Hi Armin, you mentioned you have a collection of Countdown Rev's. I have probably discussed this with you in the past & may even have traded from you as well. If you would like to email me at the following address: mshearer at internode dot on dot net - (spelt out so as not to attract spammers) I will send you the list of episodes that I have. Regards, Matt.

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

theme?

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

1989.

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

I'd say it's more a LATE EIGHTIES special ...

- It's Money That Matters by Randy Newman is from the Land of Dreams album of 1988.
- Pretty Girls is from Cameo's 1988 album Machismo, as is Skin I'm In.
- Hooked On You is from Sweet Sensation's 1988 album Take it While It's Hot.
- Samantha Fox's Love House is from the 1988 album I Wanna Have Some Fun.
- King of Portugal by Al Stewart was released in 1988 from the Last Days of The Century album.
- Phenomena II's Did It All For Love was released on the their 1987 album Dream Runner.
- Little Lives, Big Love by Adele Bertei was on her 1988 album Little Lives.
- The Way You Love Me was released on self titled Karyn White album from 1988.
- Stevie Wonders 1987 album Characters featured My Eyes Don't Cry, but the single was released in 1988.

The rest were all from 1989.

I love how someone at Rage is delving into the more 'unplayed' songs from 70s and 80s.

Very happy to see Boomtown by David + David, loved that track in the day.

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

Same. Loved it when i heard it on Take 40 back in Summer '86/'87. Never saw the video until about 5 years ago on YouTube. I finally got hold of the single about 15 years ago and picked up their album - a rare find on CD - about 10 years ago. Highly recommend it esp the songs released as follow up singles....Do y'self a favour!
