Howard again. I've started using the Timer feature on my phone instead of the snooze feature and it sounds bit like this

You could never admit to liking wham songs as a kid, but they had some great pop tunes.
Loads of melody & youthful exuberance. In hindsight it's pure Motown.

Wham!'s bassist, Deon Estus, was taught by famous motown session bassist James Jamerson and all.

The Wham! trainspotter tune to claim as your favourite is Blue (armed with love), if you ever feel like boring someone to death.

I came across this on an Irish Rock forum. Two lads from Blackrock. They were the first Irish band to be signed to an American label, apparently the song made it into the American Hot 100. At first I laughed, then realised its really rather good. If only they'd had a better stylist. Check out the technical wizardry in the strange video.

haven't seen this since the early days of youtube -
directed by Spike Lee and featuring Laurence Fishburne, dancers (think the kids from Fame trying breakdancing) and loads of white powder which made it unbroadcastable
GRAND MASTER FLASH (MELLE MEL) - White Lines (Don't Do It) 1983

I remember my friend next door had, now that's what I call music 3 on double cassette.
That track was on it.

Compilation released summer 1984. (I had to look it up)
