Some Spandau Ballet for the weekend

This week it’s New Romantic 80s icons Spandau Ballet.
These two tracks show their style change from their rawer sound right at the beginning to their smooth post “True” style.

“To Cut a Long Story Short” was their first hit and reached number 5 in 1980

Some 80s pop supergroups for the weekend

This week we have two of the most famous bands from the 80s. These tracks are from 1984.

“Only When You Leave” (extended) by Spandau Ballet reached number 3. This is a lesser known track but one of my favourites of theirs.
