Chart positions

This upload was 1st in the #pop chart, 1st in the #new wave chart, 1st in the #synth-pop chart, 3rd in the #disco chart and 8th in the #soul chart.

Enjoy this 1980s inspired Smooth Sailing episode! One of the tracks is a new one by Du Tonc. They deliver a radio-friendly 'ear-worm': a melancholic synth-pop song that sounds like a chart-topper in waiting.

The Chagrin d'Armour's track is sweetly surprising, I didn't know it ;-)
Among many, Chromeo's remix is cool too.
It's gonna be a Good Night Tonight!

Just discovered Kenny Pore. Thanks!

Professor Eddy

He only made two albums, as far as I know. 'My heart knows' is from 'You don't know me', released in 1985.
