Hola Gaby, y gracias por tu comentario muy poético. Sí, es así para mí también, hay que sentir la música, vivirla. La música nos acompaña en el camino de nuestra vida y nuestros recuerdos siempre tienen una banda sonora, no? Y es algo maravilloso poder compartirla, como aquí. Pues, gracias otra vez, amiga!

Has it really been thirty years? I think I felt that this kind of diverse and sophisticated pop would always be around - how wrong of me, heh. You've mixed it all so perfectly too, from the thundercrash of "It's A Sin" carefully placed all the way through to Chris Rea into Los Lobos, every segue is fantastic and seamless. My favorite song here is Donna Summer's "Dinner With Gershwin", it's always been a favorite and I remember buying the 45 distinctly. It's just as much down to Brenda Russell's excellent songcraft as it is to Donna's recording. Speaking of songcraft, Squeeze and The Housemartins deserve a special mention as well, brilliant songs, those. The forgotten flashback moment for me here is Sherrick's "Just Call" - that one really brought back this season for me strongly, refreshing my memory of a time before Rick Astley's song became a meme! And strong memories too of how huge and groundbreaking "Pump Up The Volume" was at the time, how it seemed to merge indie and dance cultures together, everyone was into that one. I really can't think of how this mix might have been made better, it is flawless, and wonderful - thanks for doing this series, it is truly unimpeachable!

Cheers, Mark! Your expert opinions and views mean a lot to me and your thumbs up really feels like a seal of approval. I must say I was surprised by the number of late 80's songs that I still like or like again (or in some cases like for the first time). That's one of the things I love about making these mixes: the (re)discoveries and the way this music can be placed in a broader context today. I'm sure you know what I mean. As for "Dinner With Gershwin", I still don't understand why that wasn't a huge hit, although it did well in the UK. And the Rick Astley song, well, I guess it really opened the floodgates for that particular Stock, Aitken & Waterman sound that would haunt the European charts for years to come.

I do like Hue and Cry very much. It’s just that I played that debut album over and over! Mea culpa!! Yes, although the Quiet Storm plays for me from 5pm here it’s a great wind down from the day. Am glad you’re enjoying it!!

Another fine mix that hits the right spot perfectly on a Monday morning. I was listening to This is Max - a UK 80s radio station - when i was notified there's a new Hit List! It's a temporary farewell to This is Max! Great stuff once more! Lovely to hear Sweetest Smile, First we take Manhattan, Catch, Spy in the house of love, Sugar mice, Crazy and Me and the Farmer! I'll even enjoy Labour of Love just because of how it flows smoothly into Voyage Voyage! Thank you!!

Thanks again for listening and commenting, Adrian! Ah well, yes, Labour Of Love, I had warned you that you might come across that one at some point (soz!). In my defense, it wasn't a big hit over here (no. 68 in the Dutch charts), so I myself have not been overexposed to it. Oh, and I just tuned in to This is Max myself (to a show called The Quiet Storm - perfect late night stuff). Like it a lot, so cheers for that!
