I really don't know much about The Sundays but somehow I liked this song on first ''sight'' and that's enough. The only available version I found is LP version (of course there's Tin Tin Out remix but that's another subject), and this LP version with 3:54 was little bit too short for me. Rest of the story you can imagine. Crossover ends exactly 3 minutes later.

Duran Duran or Spandau Ballet ? That was the question back on the beginning of 80's. Who has better songs ? Who has better styling ? Better videos ? ...
I couldn't decide it back then and later I didn't even try. So let's leave it as dead race.
Just as title says ''Gold'' became real gold over the years. Highest Billboard hot 100 position was only 27 while LP reached 19 on top 200.
I made this crossover by request from Ivana, a friend of mine who didn't have a chance to listen and enjoy in the 80's (she was too young) but still she recognize it as real new wave anthology classic.

First time I saw Grace Jones I thought she is not from this world....or from our time. She must be from some other planet or from the future. And I still think the same.
''Inside story'' came out back in 1986. with one of her all time hits on it ''I'm not perfect...''. Even though this one was biggest (only) hit from this LP my favourite is ''Victor...''. I can even say it is the one I would put on Grace Jones Top 10.
12'' version was made by Ben Liebrand but he changed original sound of the track and that's something I'm avoiding in my crossovers. For this one I used 4:42 long album version...crossovered goes up to 7:30.
Comments, suggestions or requests are welcome...as always. :)

If you still didn't discover Dulce Pontes, a Portuguese musician, songwriter and singer, here's oportunity to do so.
Excellent voice combined with amazing performance puts Dulce high on my best female vocals list. With ''Cancao do mar'' she climb high on my best theme list as well.
I can't leave out of this story Amália da Piedade Rodrigues who performed this classic back in 1955 and thanks to Dulce a song was reborn in best possible way.
Original LP version used for this crossover ends up at 5:15. You can enjoy it up to 8:33. Lyrics included in file properties. Have fun...enjoy life.
