Worth it for Womack and Womack alone!
on 7 January 2017
It was after I heard a (very different) cover version of “Smalltown Boy” during the end-credits of the film “Les Cowboys” that I was reminded of Bronski Beat’s original, that I then looked for it on a CD, and a second-hand copy of “Smash Hits 1984” was what I ended up buying in order to have a copy of the song – and what a great song it is. I hadn’t heard it for years but hearing it again it is fantastic song to get you moving and singing along to!!!
The CD has eighteen tracks – some more memorable than others, but there are a few that I’m really pleased to have again, like: “I Feel for You” by Chaka Khan, “Love Wars” by Womack and Womack (which is possibly my favourite from the CD, and of course the one song that I bought the CD for, “Smalltown Boy” by Bronski Beat.
The eighteen songs:
01 I Feel for You (5:48) Chaka Khan
02 Robert de Niro’s Waiting (3:43) Bananarama
03 Smalltown Boy (5:03) Bronski Beat
04 Young at heart (3:26) Bluebells
05 The Killing Room (5:48) Echo and the Bunnymen
06 Like to Get to Know You (3:59) Howard Jones
07 Self Control (4:08) Laura Branigan
08 Get out of Your Lazy Bed (3:29) Matt Bianco
09 The Day Before You Came (5:50) Blancmange
10 Sunglasses (2:58) Tracey Ullman
11 Love Wars (5:59) Womack and Womack
12 Lost in Music (6:38) Sister Sledge
13 All I Need is Everything (5:42) Aztec Camera
14 More, More, More (3:16) Carmel
15 Thieves Like Us (3:57) New Order
